Insurance Defense Attorneys Serving New York City and the Surrounding Areas


An Extensive Track Record of Success in Insurance Defense

For more than 30 years, Jeffrey Samel & Partners has focused on defending insurance carriers, corporations of all sizes, small businesses, self-insureds, municipalities, and charitable entities in personal injury and related lawsuits.

Our New York City-based insurance defense lawyers understand the sympathy that jurors frequently feel for the injured, and know how to effectively counter that bias with strong defenses built on facts and legal precedent. We also understand that our clients want to obtain resolutions of these cases quickly and inexpensively. We concentrate all our efforts into achieving both of these goals and have defended our clients against thousands of lawsuits. Our track record of successes is extensive and impressive

Our firm’s founder, Jeffrey Samel, has received a rating of AV Preeminent* from Martindale-Hubbell for legal ability and ethical standards. Mr. Samel is a frequent lecturer, and is considered one of the foremost authorities on trial advocacy by the legal community. He is a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA), an elite association of consummate trial attorneys. Other members of our firm also lecture on the art of trial advocacy and related subjects.

Personal Injury Liability Lawyers Defending Against Fraudulent or Exaggerated Claims Also Representing Clients With Cases in Westchester County and Long Island

Our attorneys seek to minimize the cost of litigation and increase the probability of successful outcomes for our clients faced with personal injury and related claims. We find that many of these cases can be resolved successfully through direct negotiation, mediation, or arbitration. However if a matter cannot or should not be settled, we are ardent defenders of our clients’ interests and will vigorously defend our clients in court, through the entire trial process, and, if necessary, through appeal.
