Except for a stretch in the army and during law school, I’ve been a Brooklyn kid my entire life. I know the people, the borough and the City so well, because I was born here and they're in my blood.
In my 40 years as a trial lawyer, there’s little I haven’t seen, including, most often, the terrible price families pay when someone they love has been seriously, often catastrophically injured in an accident. The grief, the pain and suffering, the way families can be torn apart with worry over how to pay for much-needed medical care or how to put food on the table while they're out of work. It's heart-breaking to watch, let alone live through.
We will fight to help you get your life back on track. That’s our mission. It's what we do, understanding that it takes hard work, dedication and devotion to achieve that goal. There are no guarantees in life about anything, including the outcome of a lawsuit. That’s why picking the right lawyer to have at your side is so important. It’s also why I tell each of our clients when we first meet, that any lawyer who tells you your case is worth a million dollars the moment you walk through the door, is the first lawyer you should reject.
We won’t do that. We will be honest with you from the start. Why? Because whether we're talking about a construction worker who fell from a scaffold, someone who trips and falls on a broken stair or sidewalk, who's been injured in a motor vehicle accident or by a doctor or defective product, the amount that case is worth depends upon so many unknowns at that point: the strength of the liability case against the defendant, the severity of the injuries and their aftermath, the long-term economic losses and the dedication of the client and his or her lawyers to getting done the hard work necessary to achieve success. No lawyer, no matter how good they are, can know that the first time they meet you. Equally important is that both you and your lawyers never lose sight of the fact that there is an insurance company on the other side that will leave no stone unturned, while spending every dollar it takes to try and beat you.
That’s why we fight so hard to help you get your life back on track. And why we’ve been so consistently successful in our representation of seriously injured accident victims.
Goldberg & Lasson is a boutique law firm and not a "mill," which is a law firm that churns out volumes of cases for minimal recoveries. We do the exact opposite: we limit the number of cases we take so that we can focus on maximizing the amount of money we get for our clients. By intentionally keeping the firm small, we are able to commit ourselves to achieving the best possible results for our seriously injured clients. We understand that when you are involved in an accident, you do not suffer alone. Your family suffers right along with you. You not only endure the indignity of physical pain, suffering and emotional upheaval, but your medical bills also pile up. At the same time, because you require continuing medical care and treatment, you lose the ability to work to support your family and the people you love. That takes its toll on both you and your loved ones, and we understand that you need our help to get your life back on track.
At Goldberg & Lasson, no single client is more important than the next. We focus on each client individually, get to know them very well and then use that knowledge as a sword against the insurance companies to maximize our client's recoveries and help them get their life back on track.*
As your attorneys, we recognize that obtaining a full and fair settlement prior to trial is a worthwhile goal, because it assures you of getting your money sooner. But if a law firm settles all of its cases, the insurance companies representing the defendants will penalize that firm by making unreasonably low settlement offers. To keep the insurance companies from undervaluing our client's cases, we aggressively prepare each and every case as though it is going to be tried. Because the insurance companies know that - and know us - it helps us to obtain the highest possible settlements for our clients. Rest assured, however, that if a fair settlement cannot be obtained in your case, we will push the defendants through the courthouse door and make them defend themselves to a jury of your peers. And we will push them hard.
Why? Because at Goldberg & Lasson, we not only want you to feel that you've been well‐ represented, but also that we have stood by you and helped you to get your life back on track.
