For more than 35 years, Steven Schwartzapfel, the founding member of Schwartzapfel Lawyers P.C., has been one of New York’s most prominent personal injury attorneys. Steve represents clients in all types of personal injury cases. His experience, skill, and dedication have enabled Schwartzapfel Lawyers P.C. to recover hundreds of millions of dollars for their clients.

All of us at Schwartzapfel® Lawyers hope this note finds you, your family, friends, and loved ones healthy and safe. Our hearts go out to those of you ill and recovering. Our sympathies and condolences to those who have lost loved ones.

This global pandemic and its resulting impact on our daily lives have been overwhelming. The personal pain, financial hardship, and community-wide disruption are unprecedented in our lifetimes. Right now in America, 1 out of every 8 families is unable to put food on their table. As such, we are making significant contributions to New York’s community-based non-profits that are filling the gap in providing food and meals to those who simply can’t afford to eat.

It’s a reality that millions of businesses have been destroyed. With New York’s courts shuttered, law firms are closing and many are undercapitalized making them unable to aggressively prosecute their clients’ cases and get results. Schwartzapfel® Lawyers remains financially strong. Rest assured that we have not and will not settle nor accept anything less than full and fair compensation for our clients.

However long it is before trials resume, Schwartzapfel® Lawyers is well-positioned to meet this challenge and stands ready to take verdicts and hold wrongdoers fully accountable.

If your family or friends are uncertain about the financial stability of their lawyer or law firm, have them contact us. Despite these truly uncertain times, our firm has never stopped working on behalf of valued clients and communities. We wish all of you good health and safety.

For more than three and a half decades, Steven Schwartzapfel® has been handling complex construction accident cases and representing union members. As the founder of Schwartzapfel® Lawyers P.C., his skill, experience, and expertise have enabled him to recover hundreds of millions of dollars on behalf of his clients. He is one of few attorneys who has served both as President-Elect of New York State Trial Lawyers Association and the New York State Academy of Trial Lawyers. As a member of the National Trial Lawyers Association Top 100 and America’s Top 100 Attorneys, Steven and Schwartzapfel® Lawyers consistently deliver among the highest verdicts and settlements in New York State.
