Firm Overview

I Am Your Attorney, at Your Service

My name is Melvyn S. Jacknowitz and I am here to help. When you retain my New York City firm's legal services, you are retaining a lawyer who brings more than 34 years of successful experience and millions of dollars returned in verdicts and settlements for clients to your personal situation. You are retaining a lawyer who is genuinely concerned about you and wants to see you obtain the compensation that you deserve under the law.

When I represent clients like you in personal injury matters, you will know that I am your attorney, not as in some large personal injury law firm where you are passed from one attorney to another and wait for long periods of time to have your calls returned.

We care about you, not just your case. I care about those who turn to my law firm for help with their personal injury matter. Questions about your accident? Call 646-475-2386 or complete the electronic contact form for your free initial consultation with an experienced lawyer today.

Skilled, Thorough and Aggressive

Whether you have been hurt in a premises liability accident, in a car-pedestrian accident, or you are dealing with a defective product matter, I have skills and an understanding of the law that may make a significant difference in the outcome of your case. I will thoroughly investigate your claim, looking beyond a quick settlement to find all sources of liability for you.

Sole Practitioner by Choice With Caring Support Staff

I am a sole practitioner by choice because that allows me to provide the attention that each client deserves. I 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.

When you call during business hours, you will never be directed to voice mail. You will always speak to either myself or a member of my staff. My staff willingly asks, "How can I help you?" And then they help.

Free Initial Consultation— 646-475-2386 | E-Mail

Have you been injured in an accident? I offer a free case evaluation and consultation with no obligation in which you can get your questions answered and understand your legal options. I represent clients in personal injury matters on a contingency basis. This means that you do not pay an attorney's fee unless I am able to obtain money compensation for you. Se habla español.
