Helping Injured People Since 1975


Experienced, Compassionate and Protective of Your Rights

My name is Melvyn S. Jacknowitz, and I am an attorney who has focused exclusively on personal injury law for the entirety of my career. Since 1975, I have been helping injured people get the compensation that they deserve. My law office is on Fulton Street in lower Manhattan, and I work with clients throughout New York City, including Brooklyn, the Bronx, Queens, Staten Island, Westchester County and Nassau County. If you are unable to come to the office, we will arrange to see you, at your convenience.

Each client is treated as a person—not a number. I care about those who turn to my law firm for help. Questions about your accident? Call 646-475-2386 or complete the electronic contact form for your free initial consultation with no obligation with an experienced lawyer today.

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.

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.

Excellent Administrative Staff and a Caring Office Atmosphere

I am privileged to have an excellent administrative staff which includes those who hail from Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Columbia and Jamaica. As a result, I have a unique understanding of the issues that people born in another country face when they have been injured and are unsure of their rights.
