ABOUT Melvyn S. Jacknowitz Attorney at Law P.C.

Since 1975, I have been helping injured people get the compensation that they deserve. Each client is treated as a person. I care about those who turn to my law firm for help. I will be your attorney not an associate. Free consultation.

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.

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

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.

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.
