Over Four Decades Of Success
After working for many years as the managing partner of a large law firm, I founded Michael J. Gaffney Law Firm. I have spent over a decade at my own firm providing effective, affordable representation to the Staten Island community. As a solo practitioner, my cases are never handed down to a less experienced associate. This level of focused attention ensures that your case receives consistent, high-quality service personalized to meet your needs.
I am passionate about helping injury victims through difficult times. I fight to maximize my clients’ recovery with aggressive representation and a commitment to pursuing their best interests. If you have sustained a personal injury, I can guide you through the legal process to obtain the settlement you deserve so you can focus on recovering.
Why Experience Matters When Choosing A Lawyer
In more than four decades of personal injury representation, I have come across cases involving almost every kind of accident, including:
- Slip-and-fall injuries on icy sidewalks
- Life-threatening construction accidents on skyscrapers
- Pedestrian accidents caused by distracted drivers
- Catastrophic and fatal auto accidents
This diverse experience allows me to provide a realistic assessment of the likelihood of success and accurate valuations of potential damages. Because I’ve been practicing in this area of law for so many years, I am familiar with the insurance companies and the law firms representing them, which gives me an advantage in strategizing your case to maximize your recovery.
Serving Brooklyn, The Staten Island Community And Surrounding Areas
I am a skilled litigator, licensed to practice in New York and New Jersey, as well as in federal court. I am also experienced in appellate work, having argued in front of the highest court in the state – the New York Court of Appeals. Working with investigators and experts, I build strong cases and persuasively present them to insurance companies and juries on behalf of my clients.
I am passionate about serving this community with my legal practice and helping Staten Island residents when they have been injured.
