Dallin M. Fuchs
As one of our senior partners and lead trial attorneys, Dallin M. Fuchs focuses his practice exclusively on significant personal injury cases involving automobile accidents, construction accidents, premises liability and general negligence. He brings 25 years of experience in the preparation and trial of cases in both New York and New Jersey. He has secured over a hundred million dollars in jury verdicts and settlements on behalf of his clients.
Dallin’s accomplishments reflect his deliberate approach to his cases. He is of the firm belief that meticulous preparation is the key to successfully litigating a case. No detail is too small and nothing will be overlooked. Among Dallin’s greatest strengths in this regard is his skill at questioning witnesses at depositions. Dallin has said “An attorney cannot just ask questions from a script. An attorney must listen to the answers and be prepared to follow up.” It is this attention to detail which has allowed Dallin to confront witnesses with incorrect statements or outright fabrications that many other attorneys would have missed. This had led to cases being resolved quickly and favorably for many of his clients.
Dallin is well-known throughout the Courts of New York as a fierce trial attorney with incisive courtroom proficiency and poise. His impeccable trial preparation and ability to think on his feet make him a very dangerous and respected adversary to both the defense bar and the insurance industry. He implements a major philosophy of the firm in all of his cases – each case must be prepared as if it will go to trial. This includes researching every fact and point of law. His thorough grasp of the nuances of complex legal and factual issues, together with his ability to distill that information into clear and understandable terms for a jury, has resulted in an impressive track record of legal victories for the firm’s clients.
Dallin combines his impressive legal skills with a deep sense of concern for his clients which is apparent to all parties involved. His clients come to fully trust him and his advice because he takes the time to explain to each client the legal process and the reasoning behind every decision. He is known to spend hours explaining the case to the client, preparing them for testimony, and in general, helping them through some of the most difficult times in their lives. “It’s incredibly rewarding to represent people who are looking to you to make things right for them,” Dallin says.
Dallin’s expertise in New York personal injury litigation has been long-recognized by his peers. He has been included in Super Lawyers in New York every year from 2010 to the present. Martindale Hubbell has also awarded him an “AV” rating which signifies that Martindale Hubbell regards Dallin as having the pinnacle of professional excellence and the highest rating in legal ability and ethical standards.
Dallin is also pleased to share his knowledge and skills with other members of the Bar of the State of New York. As mentioned previously, Dallin’s deposition skills are among the finest in the State and he welcomes the opportunity to teach other attorneys and improve the overall skill-level of the profession in that regard. He is frequently asked to share his knowledge and experience, and has served as a lecturer for the American Bar Association.
Finally, as one of the leaders of our firm, Dallin’s integrity, compassion and legal ability help form the cornerstone of our firm’s successful practice. He strongly believes in the firm’s philosophy of handling only the most serious injuries and cases so as to best represent those injured clients who need our representation the most.Significant Verdicts and Settlements
