Jeffrey Samel & Partners

Jeffrey Samel & Partners

Law Firm in New York, NY

Firm Overview

Since the inception of the firm in 1983, JEFFREY SAMEL & PARTNERS has been successfully defending clients against personal injury lawsuits. Our professional staff is comprised of highly skilled trial attorneys, appellate counsel, and attorneys who apply their expertise in managing, monitoring, and coordinating the efficient handling of litigation files to a successful conclusion. Since Jeffrey Samel founded the firm, it has grown and prospered due to our unceasing efforts to provide cost-effective representation without sacrificing quality. The firm's hourly fees for such representation are highly competitive. Moreover, task-based fees, blended rates, and volume discounts are available.

In addition to being rated "AV" by Martindale-Hubbell, JEFFREY SAMEL & PARTNERS is qualified as a minority-owned business enterprise, because Senior Partner Jeffrey Samel is physically challenged, having been born without arms. Our sterling reputation and litigation expertise are well recognized in the legal community, including by such august bodies as the American Board of Trial Advocates; the National Institute of Trial Advocacy; Who's Who in American Law; Who's Who in Practicing Lawyers; and the Continuing Legal Education programs of various Bar Associations and Law Schools.

We are frequently called upon by our clients to represent them in cases involving catastrophic injuries and high exposures. Typically, our clients are high-profile entities, who are often concerned that jurors believe that they are amply able to compensate seriously injured plaintiffs, regardless of fault.

Whether obtaining defense verdicts in wrongful death cases such as Hilton, traumatic amputation case such as Glassberg, or summary dismissal at the lower court or appellate level in cases like Namisnak or Abramowitz, we are not intimidated by high stakes, but instead, vigorously defend our clients to obtain the best resolution possible, no matter the amount of the exposure or the public perception of our client. We are also mindful that there are cases that are best resolved without protracted litigation, and when our client agrees it is appropriate, we strive to reach reasonable and appropriate settlements through court conferences, Alternate Dispute Resolution, and informal settlement discussions.
