New York City Accident Lawyers
Leav & Steinberg, LLP is a skilled and experienced law firm that focuses on representing seriously injured individuals. We handle all types of accident cases, including construction accidents, automobile accidents, as well as municipal liability and medical malpractice. The firm was founded seventeen years ago by Edward Steinberg and Daniel Leav. The firm has grown to include nine New York City accident attorneys and a fifteen person support staff. From the outset the firm has focused on providing premier legal representation and excellent customer service.
When the firm was started many other firms were representing their clients using outdated methods. Leav & Steinberg was one of the first firms to incorporate new trial techniques utilizing technology, computer graphics, and advanced case-management programs. The firm quickly established itself as a cutting-edge trial firm. Regardless, Leav & Steinberg’s principal goals of working closely with our clients and achieving recoveries for them have remained the same. We offer free initial consultations with a New York City accident lawyer who is experienced in your type of case. We are selective in the cases that we handle. Although we prepare every case as if it will be tried before a jury, we frequently obtain full value on the case earlier. Our staff speaks English, Spanish, Albanian, Polish and Portuguese. We are able to assist individuals who speak other languages as well.
Mr. Steinberg has steadily moved up the ranks at the New York State Trial Lawyers Association and is serving on his third term as a Board of Director member.
Daniel Leav has continued to successfully try cases in all counties including Nassau & Suffolk and has been responsible for over 3 verdicts or settlements each over $1 million dollars in just the last 12 months.
Most recently, the firm was responsible for resolving all remaining cases from the tragic East 51st Street Construction Crane Accident that occurred in 2008. Leav & Steinberg represented the only person who was not a laborer who was killed at the site. Unlike many who settled early on for limited sums, Leav & Steinberg pushed this matter to the very end and was able to secure a global recovery in excess of $20 million dollars which provided for many remaining claimants who held out and brought the litigation to the very end.
Another main focus of the firm is pursuing car accident litigation. Over the last six months alone, our New York City accident attorneys have been able to resolve several car accident cases in which the defendant or responsible party was unwilling to settle the cases. Our firm and experience has allowed us to obtain findings of responsibility before trial, so that at trial, the jury can focus their attention on the serious injuries sustained by the defendant's negligence. In fact, we took two verdicts in just the last few months in car accident cases that were in excess of the last offer as well as above the available limits of insurance coverage. We will continue to pursue those responsible and have been able to recover damages in excess of the insurance policies.
This year we are pleased to report that both name partners as well as partner Daniela Henriques were selected to the SuperLawyers listing. This listing is limited to 5% of attorney's in New York and we are truly proud of the accomplishment.
The firm is often consulted by other law firms in other areas of practice when they need consultation and representation by a litigation firm for a claim of negligence. We are very proud that many in our legal profession both here and around the country have considered Leav & Steinberg, LLP as the best fit for recommending a personal injury attorney.
