About Us

Hecht Kleeger & Damashek, P.C., is a law firm dedicated to serving the needs of victims and their families. With more than 75 years of combined experience, the attorneys of Hecht Kleeger & Damashek, P.C., have devoted their legal practice to the pursuit of justice. The partners from Hecht Kleeger & Damashek, P.C., originally came from the largest, most experienced and most profitable personal injury firms in New York State. Hecht Kleeger & Damashek, P.C., was formed because these attorneys wanted to provide more personal attention to clients — something that could not be done at larger firms — while still obtaining the highest top dollar settlements and judgments. Our firm strives to provide unparalleled legal representation, while supporting our clients through the difficulties that arise from being injured in a serious accident.


It is our goal to obtain the highest possible cash award for each client. While most cases do settle, the seasoned trial attorneys at Hecht Kleeger & Damashek, P.C., prepare every case as if it will proceed to trial. We have the resources and experience to try any case and win. At Hecht Kleeger & Damashek, P.C., our attorneys believe in being consistently aggressive in representing our clients, particularly those who are victims of accidents, negligence and personal injury.

At Hecht Kleeger & Damashek, P.C., we make every effort to get involved in a client’s case as soon as possible. In personal injury claims, insurance company representatives (called “adjusters”) act quickly, trying to obtain a speedy settlement. Usually, these are low-ball offers made in the company’s best interests. Adjusters never act on behalf of a victim’s best interests. Prompt action is even more important in cases when it comes to properly investigating an accident claim.

In civil rights cases including false arrest, police brutality, and malicious prosecution, key evidence may mysteriously vanish like a wisp of smoke. Hecht Kleeger & Damashek, P.C., attorneys and investigators are at the ready, to collect potential evidence while it is fresh. Memories fade, paperwork can be misplaced, making it essential to gather facts quickly. We will immediately locate key witnesses, obtain statements, take photographs and preserve other evidence before it disappears.

Procrastination can lose a lawsuit. Hecht Kleeger & Damashek, P.C., works on a contingency fee basis. The client is not responsible for any initial payment or costs during the litigation and all consultations are free. Hecht Kleeger & Damashek, P.C., only recovers a fee upon the successful conclusion of your case.
