About our New York, NY: office

The NY personal injury law firm of Barasch & McGarry is one of New York's most prominent firms concentrating in the areas of personal injury, wrongful death, medical malpractice, and firefighter rights. Our firm enjoys an outstanding reputation with people of every background, ethnic group, and profession in New York. Our accident lawyers represent seriously injured victims from all types of accidents. We have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars on behalf of our clients at trials and in settlements. When you cannot fight for yourself, we will fight relentlessly and aggressively on your behalf, until you receive the compensation.

With nearly 100 years of collective legal experience, our NY injury attorneys have won landmark decisions in favor of our clients in some of our nation's highest courts. Many of our clients hear about our successes from friends and colleagues, and we often are referred clients by other lawyers. We are especially proud of the awards that we have obtained on behalf of thousands of New York City firefighters who sustained injuries in the line of duty. We successfully have argued cases that have resulted in improved laws, which strengthen the rights of firefighters.

Litigation can be a daunting and intimidating process. We take pride not just in maximizing our clients' compensation, but also in our commitment to making the journey to justice as understandable and pleasant as possible. At Barasch & McGarry, we know that a case may not end just because a trial comes to a close. If a case goes to appeal, our team is prepared to perform all the appellate work necessary to show your case was tried without error. Our New York personal injury lawyers will advocate tirelessly on your behalf to challenge appeals or litigation decisions.

Our growth

Michael Barasch and Jim McGarry graduated from Fordham University School of Law in 1980. For 14 years they worked at separate law firms. Michael worked for two top personal injury firms and tried dozens of cases on behalf of seriously injured victims of automobile accidents, construction accidents, railroad and plane crashes, and medical malpractice. He recovered millions of dollars on behalf of his clients. Jim became a specialist in the New York City Employees' Retirement System. He represented dozens of seriously injured New York City firefighters, both for their personal injuries as well as to protect their pension benefits.

In 1994, we decided to pool our resources and experience as New York accident lawyers. We formed the law firm of Barasch & McGarry. From the beginning, our firm has concentrated our practice on helping permanently injured accident victims. The firm prides itself on helping its clients deal with a great deal of problems that are commonly encountered following a life-changing accident. These areas include dealing with medical bills, mortgage or rent payments, finding competent medical help, and investigating the accident to determine who was responsible. Witnesses must be identified and interviewed so as to preserve their testimony for later use.

As our firm grew, so did our realization of the importance of our two most valuable assets. In 2000, the firm was proud to announce that personal injury attorneys Barry Salzman and Dom Penson had become partners. Barry, who came to us from one of New York City's most prestigious personal injury firms, has managed some of our most important cases. Recently, he has spearheaded the firm's bunker gear case against the City of New York on behalf of hundreds of firefighters. Dom came to us after assisting one of the country's best trial lawyers obtain a $56 million verdict. Dom has tried many major cases to verdict and has argued important cases on behalf of firefighters at both the Appellate Division and the Court of Appeals.
