Schwartzapfel Lawyers P.C.
Personal Injury, Construction Accidents, Medical Malpractice, Premises Liability, Motor Vehicle Accidents
Schwartzapfel Lawyers serves as a powerful advocate for people who have suffered serious injuries or lost loved ones as a result of someone else’s wrongdoing. The firm focuses on construction site injuries and handles its clients’ personal injury, social security disability, and workers’ compensation claims all under one roof. It has developed a premier reputation for obtaining among the highest verdicts and settlements in New York State.
“We invest all of our resources, skill, experience, and expertise into getting our clients the money and benefits they deserve,” says Steven J. Schwartzapfel, who founded his firm in 1981 after defending accident cases and seeing firsthand the tactics and strategies insurance companies engaged in to delay and deny legitimate claims.
In the more than three decades since then, Schwartzapfel’s firm has achieved a 99 percent litigation success rate on all personal injury cases accepted and prosecuted—a testament to the dedication and knowledge the firm’s attorneys bring to the practice.
Schwartzapfel has regularly been listed in Super Lawyers, as well as recognized as a Top 100 Trial Lawyer by both the American Trial Lawyers Association and the National Trial Lawyers Association. Schwartzapfel, Christopher Holbrook, and Michael Reiner are all members of the elite Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum. Above all, though, Schwartzapfel says that the testimonials he receives from satisfied clients are the most meaningful of his recognitions.
While Schwartzapfel Lawyers have consistently returned multimillion-dollar settlements and verdicts for their clients, what speaks most to their outstanding service is the abundance of 5-Star Google reviews and client testimonials, which stand as a testament to their dedication to excellence and their commitment to results on behalf of their clients.
