Please Call (516) 358-6900

I, Richard Jaffe began working at the Law Office of Cohen & Jaffe while finishing Law School at night. As a paralegal, drafted motions and memoranda of law, and conducted extensive legal research, focusing on medical malpractice, insurance, liability and health care issues. After being admitted to the bar, became an associate of the firm, representing seriously injured persons. As a Junior Partner, oversaw the firm’s paralegal and investigation team. Currently, as a name partner, I continue to practice in the areas of Personal Injury, Medical Malpractice, Insurance Law, Products Liability, Lead Paint Poisoning, and Municipal Liability. I manage the workflow for five associate attorneys and the firm’s entire support staff.

I deal with Allstate, State Farm, and a large number of other major Insurance Carriers on a daily basis, with an emphasis on legal issues relating to accident liability, medical malpractice and the entitlement of medical examinations in “no-fault” cases. I have represented thousands of victims of car accidents, medical malpractice and other types of negligence cases such as trip and fall, slip and fall, etc. I have successfully helped these injury victims and their families collect millions of dollars, and I can do the same for you.
