Advocating for Our Clients Beyond the Courtroom
The Schwartzapfel Lawyers P.C. philosophy of compassion, integrity and respect go beyond the courtroom and into our community. Our attorneys and staff passionately believe in donating our time, resources, knowledge and skills to people in need.
For more than three decades, Schwartzapfel Lawyers P.C. has fought for justice for those people who could not fight for themselves. For those people injured in automobile collisions, construction accidents, slips and falls, workplace injuries, wrongful death, medical malpractice and negligence. We have helped thousands of injured New Yorkers and their families recover money and benefits with which to pay bills, obtain medical care, improve their quality of life and plan for the future. We are driven by our strong commitment to upholding our clients’ rights and our genuine concern for their well-being and the community they live in.
MAKING THE NY ROADS SAFE
We have witnessed firsthand the devastation caused by drunk driving and want to put an end to these preventable accidents. Our founding partner Steven Schwartzapfel serves on the executive board of New York State MADD and acts as co-chair of the legislative committee.
The firm also grants scholarships to students who cannot afford driver’s education classes. The opportunity to participate in driver’s education allows teens to obtain their junior license before age 17 and promotes safer drivers. One of the key components of the class is to prevent underage drinking and driving while intoxicated. The $600 to $700 costs per student is a small price to pay for the lives saved by teaching teens the dangers of drunk driving. The classes are a partnership between the firm, MADD, the Nassau County District Attorney’s Office and law enforcement agencies.
Our New York City personal injury lawyers and staff support numerous charities in the five boroughs, the surrounding NY region and throughout the world.
Causes we support include:
Health, Medicine And Disease Prevention
Children & Teens
Food & Housing Justice
International Relief Organizations
