Overview

Many firms can claim big settlement numbers, but not many can say they were instrumental in changing the law. That’s precisely what we did in 2011. That year, our firm took the case, Wilinski v. 334 East 92nd Housing Development Fund Corp., all the way to New York State’s highest court, the Court of Appeals. Our successful appeal set a new precedent which allows workers to collect for injuries sustained in construction accidents that had previously not been protected by the laws of New York State. In Wilinski, we expanded the scope of what type of construction hazards are protected by the law, and in doing so allowed many more construction workers to collect awards for their injuries and economic damages. Other firms now refer to the Wilinski case to establish the merits of their own cases. To those firms I say: you’re welcome! The success of the Wilinski case was the result of a combination of several factors: (1) the courage and stamina to go forward even as lesser settlements were lobbed at us, (2) the understanding that we had a strong, winnable case, and (3) the compassion for our client and the drive to right the wrongs that were imposed upon him. The Platta Law Firm has a proven track record and has been recognized by our peers. Our results have been counted by the New York law Journal among the “Top New York Verdicts of 2010”™, as well as the “Top New York Settlements of 2013 and 2014”™. For excellence in practice we were selected as “Rising Stars” in Super Lawyers™ in 2013, 2014, and 2015, which place us in an honorable group of the finest attorneys in the New York City metropolitan area. In 2015, our law firm received nominations as the “10 Best” Personal Injury Attorneys in New York, by the American Institute of Personal Injury Attorneys™. I am very proud of our accomplishments as a law firm and of the team of people that work with me, who care about each other and our clients. We establish new law and win big cases while maintaining a personal touch with our clients. So welcome to our site! If you were involved in an accident, I hope that you will consider us for a legal advice. If you think you have a case, give us a call to set up a consultation.
