New York’s 2018 Leading Lawyers
Wilkofsky, Friedman, Karel & Cummins
Protecting the Rights of Insurance Consumers
For more than three decades, Jonathan Wilkofsky and his firm have asserted the rights of consumers confronting insurance company misconduct. The firm’s attorneys are dedicated to representing those whose lives have been affected by life-altering fires, floods, collapses, thefts, hurricanes, and other catastrophic property damage. Over the years, they have earned unprecedented property damage verdicts and landmark decisions against insurers and careless landlords and negligent insurance brokers and agents.
The firm is especially proud of its commitment to clients’ interests and winning passage of nine pieces of legislation protecting consumers. The firm is one of the few law practices to advocate for victims of disasters when the insurance company has breached the policy or acted in bad faith. The firm also represents consumers who are facing compliance with endless insurance company demands for documents, information and sworn testimony after a loss has occurred. Recognized by peers as a leader in his field, Wilkofsky has never lost a jury verdict.
The firm also takes great pride in the litigation avoidance techniques it has championed and used whenever that alternative is preferred or appropriate in order to save the consumer precious time and expense.
