Four Decades of Successful Legal Practice
Over the course of more than four decades of vigorous, compassionate and effective representation of people hurt in accidents that should never have happened.
As your attorney, I will thoroughly and creatively investigate all avenues of liability for you. I know how to build a strong and compelling case and will settle for nothing less than what is just and fair in your situation, in accordance with your wishes.
Were you injured when a car hit your bike, when a car hit your car or when a car hit you while you were walking?
Did you hurt yourself in a slip, trip or fall that was not your fault?
Were you seriously harmed by a drunk driver?
Is your insurance company giving you the runaround?
Do you just have questions about your rights and want to talk to a trustworthy lawyer?
Even if you are in this country as an undocumented visitor (a so-called illegal alien), you still have a right to obtain compensation for your medical expenses and other damages.

Meet Attorney Melvyn S. Jacknowitz:

I chose this area of law because I like helping people and because I am skilled and knowledgeable in the law, with a great depth of understanding of the issues clients face in personal injury matters.
My abilities, my nature as well as my personality insure that each client is treated with respect and as a person, not merely another lawsuit. My excellent support staff helps create an atmosphere of care and kindness that allows clients to feel welcome with all concerns.

My work comes primarily through referrals. In fact, recently, I received a call from a client whom I well-remembered, even though I hadn't spoken to her for more than 25 years. We caught up as if it were yesterday. She remembered me not only because of the successful result we obtained, but because of the way she was treated during the course of our representation. Now she wanted to entrust me with a personal injury matter concerning her son.
