BARRY WASHOR

PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY IN NEW YORK

Whenever a discussion is held about the top trial attorneys practicing in New York today, the name Barry Washor is consistently mentioned near the top of the list. Since he began practicing law in 1981, Mr. Washor has established a reputation as one of the top personal injury and medical malpractice lawyers in New York. His reputation stems from exceptional results and his integrity. His track record of success places him among the elite attorneys in New York history. Over the course of his career, Mr. Washor has recorded over 200 verdicts and settlements in excess of $1 million.*

Mr. Washor’s outstanding legal skills were recognized early in his career. He began his career on the defense side, working for an insurance defense law firm representing doctors and hospitals. Within just 2 years, Mr. Washor was trying major medical malpractice cases. By age 27, he was a partner at that law firm. In 1988, he left the defense side to become a plaintiff's attorney. His experience as a defense attorney gave him a unique and valuable insight into how insurers defend and evaluate medical malpractice lawsuits.

Not only is Mr. Washor experienced in the courtroom – he also understands the need to employ top experts and cutting-edge technology, such as animated presentations and medical artists, to great persuasive effect in a complex and extremely technical area of the law. He is well-known and respected by judges throughout the state for being an attorney who is always prepared to represent his clients and who does so with the highest ethical standards. At trial, Mr. Washor is regarded as a fierce advocate, extremely schooled in the art of cross-examination. His outstanding reputation as a trial lawyer, recognized by both the defense bar and the judiciary, enables Mr. Washor to maximize the results for his clients.

Throughout his impressive career, Mr. Washor continues to hold the deepest respect for his clients. "I'm amazed by the resiliency and strength of people who never thought life would be worth living again. It's a pleasure and honor to work with them, represent them and help them," Mr. Washor says.

Mr. Washor’s philosophy about trial preparation is one of the founding tenets of our firm’s practice which he stresses to all of the attorneys in our office. He firmly believes that cases are often won or lost during the discovery phase of litigation and insists that all attorneys prepare every case as if they were certain to go to trial.

The awards and accolades Mr. Washor has received over the years are numerous. He has been included in the New York Times Magazine as one of the New York metropolitan area's Super Lawyers® in the field of medical malpractice every year since 2007. He has been listed in the “Best Lawyer” section of New York Magazine in the areas of medical malpractice and personal injury every year since 2010. He has also consistently been listed as a Best Lawyer in America®. Mr. Washor has been consistently awarded the highest “AV” rating by his peers in the Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings for both his legal ability and his ethical standards. Mr. Washor is listed in Cambridge's Who's Who and is a lifetime member of The Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum®, which is an honor bestowed upon lawyers who have obtained multi-million dollar awards on behalf of their clients.*

Mr. Washor has been widely recognized as an expert in his field and is consistently sought after to share his knowledge and experience with other lawyers and law students. In fact, he teaches trial advocacy at Cardozo Law School and is a frequent lecturer in trial advocacy for the New York State Trial Lawyers Association (NYSTLA). Since 2002, he has served on NYSTLA's Board of Governors and is a member of its medical malpractice committee.

As the senior partner of our firm, Mr. Washor continues to shape our firm’s practice philosophy and sets the standard for the office to ensure our clients receive the best representation possible.
