Jeffrey Samel & Partners


Defending Corporations, Businesses, Insurance Carriers, Individuals, Charitable Institutions, and Municipalities for Over 30 Years

At Jeffrey Samel & Partners, our main objectives are to help our clients quickly and efficiently resolve liability claims against them, and to defend our clients from frustrating and sometimes frivolous or even outrageous personal injury lawsuits. We have built a reputation as a premier boutique insurance defense law firm with a long track record of successes to its name. Many of our national clients rely on us as their New York insurance defense law firm.

We have been identified as a minority-owned firm based on our founder’s congenital disability. We have long had a deep commitment to diversity, and have been recognized by the Minority Corporate Counsel Association (MCCA). All of our attorneys are highly skilled and experienced, and uphold our firm’s values of dedication to vigorously defending our clients’ interests and providing excellent legal representation.

We provide all of our clients with cost-effective representation, without sacrificing quality. We believe that you do not need a large law firm to get the job done; you need a professional, dedicated, and experienced one.

Our client list is extensive and recognizable. We have represented clients ranging from Fortune 500 companies and major corporations, to municipalities, self-insured businesses, individuals, charitable institutions, and small businesses. Regardless of size, we give the same high quality representation, dedication, and service to each and every case.

Our Insurance Defense Law Firm Can Help Your Company With Cases in New York City and the Surrounding Areas

We handle cases filed in New York for clients that are based all over the country and recognize that they want to get through these lawsuits with a minimum of inconvenience, negative publicity, and expense. We handle their cases efficiently and effectively, using alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods when appropriate. If a claim is unreasonable and based on the mistaken belief that corporations, insurance companies, municipalities and other entities or individuals, are willing to compensate regardless of fault, we will ardently defend our clients in court, building strong defenses based on facts and legal precedent.
