The New York personal injury lawyers of Hach & Rose, LLP, are dedicated to vigorously protecting the rights and interests of those who have been hurt due to the negligence or recklessness of another party, and the firm consistently achieves the top results in the State of New York representing accident victims. In both 2010 and 2011 we achieved 4 out of the top 100 results for personal injury claims as reported by the New York Jury Verdict Reporter. Those results were followed in 2012 with the highest reported jury verdict in the State of New York in a construction accident case.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

Attorney Michael Rose has spent his entire career representing accident victims. Michael has earned a reputation as one of the finest trial attorneys in New York, which is no small feat when considering the highly competitive nature of New York's legal industry. Over the years, Michael has been recognized for his work by being featured in New York Magazine's Top-Rated Lawyers in the New York Area, being selected to the 2013 2015 New York Super Lawyers list, and by being inducted as a lifetime Charter Member of Rue Ratings' Best Attorneys of America.

It has been his intellect and his ability to think strategically on his feetall while maintaining an affable demeanorthat has endeared Michael to members of the Bar and jurors alike. In fact, these character traits have helped Michael secure enough seven-figure awards and settlements to earn himself a lifetime membership to the Million Dollar and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum. In 2012, Michael reported the largest jury verdict for a construction site accident in the state of New York in excess of 13 million dollars.

Michael partnered with attorney Gregory Hach a decade ago to form Hach & Rose, LLP. At the time, Michael was already esteemed for his seven-figure jury verdicts on behalf of his personal injury clients and as a respected speaker for the New York Bar.

Attorney Gregory Hach has been involved in the labor movement for most of his life. While he was growing up, Gregory learned about the important issues concerning unionized labor from his father, who was a highly respected labor leader in New York. It was his father who taught Gregory that it takes hard work, dedication, and a reputation that is built on honesty and integrity to become an effective leader. Since then, Gregory has relied on these hallmarks of good character to serve his country as a member of the Air Force, an advocate of the labor movement, and as an attorney who has dedicated himself to the clients of Hach & Rose, LLP.

Over the course of his legal career, Gregory has represented union members all across the country. Beyond that, Gregory has advised and lectured on a number of issues that concern union workers, including personal injury, health and pension fund issues, lien and subrogation issues, securities litigation and monitoring services, summary plan descriptions, mass tort, and a number of other general labor issues. As a member of the International Union of Operating Engineers for more than 25 years now, Gregory already knows many of the people the firm works with from labor meetings and from his life-long involvement in the city's labor movement.

Before partnering to create their firm, Michael & Gregory both worked for a large firm in New York. They created their own law firm with the goal of providing personal attention to each individual client. Hach & Rose, LLP, is dedicated to placing the best interest of the client before anything else. The goal for each client and each case is to achieve the best possible results whether it is by jury trial or settlement.

As a result, Hach & Rose, LLP have partnered to create a law firm that has recovered well in excess of one hundred and fifty million dollars on behalf of their clients.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others

There's a very simple answer to that. Instead of looking at a client when they come in as a dollar sign or as revenue to the firm, we look at that person as a person, as a family man, as a mother, as a father, as a brother, as a sister, and the needs that they have financially. We look at them and we listen to them, and I think it's very important. A lot of firms don't do that; we do that.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

Well, very simple things, simple things that we hear a lot of complaints about from other firms, from people who had other attorneys at other firms. Not getting back to them on the phone that's a big deal. It may not sound like much, but it's a big deal. Just getting back to a client within 24 hours is very important to do, and it's something that a lot of people complain about. It's a very simple thing that we can fix, and we do. We hire good people, make sure that they're paid well and their heart's in their job, and because of that, we have people who care about the clients that come through our door.
