Devoted to Justice & Service

The partners at our firm originally came from the largest, most experienced, and most profitable personal injury firms in New York. Hecht, Kleeger & Damashek, P.C. was formed because we wanted to provide more personal attention to clients – something that could not be done at larger firms – while still obtaining large settlements and judgments. We strive to always provide aggressive legal assistance while supporting our clients after being injured in a construction accident, car accident, or any type of accident. Recently, our law firm was named as one of the best law firms in New York City by U.S. News & World Report.

Our Injury Attorneys Are Here For You

Have you been injured because of another person’s negligence? Are you facing high medical bills and uncertainty about your future? It is important that you retain the legal experience of a professional and aggressive attorney from Hecht, Kleeger & Damashek, P.C., today. We can fight for your case and help you bring justice to those who have done you wrong.

This time in your life can be challenging and it is critical that you work with an attorney that you trust. Some lawyers will treat your case with a cookie-cutter approach, never getting to know you and offering a very impersonal experience. When you work with Hecht Kleeger & Damashek, P.C., you will never have to worry about being treated like a number; we will know you by name, not just as a case number. Our firm has assisted countless clients in gaining their compensation, and you can trust that we will work just as hard for you.

Our Philosophy

Our team acts fast and is consistently aggressive in representing our clients.

We get involved in a client’s case as soon as possible. Unfortunately, it is typical for those who are wronged to be offered a settlement that is far less than what they actually deserve. In personal injury claims, insurance adjusters act quickly, hoping for a speedy settlement. Usually, these are low-ball offers made in the company’s best interests – not yours. We are here to say that every client whom we represent will get the aggressive representation that it takes so that they get their deserved compensation. Prompt action from an experienced attorney will ensure you are protected and that every detail of your accident is investigated.

We believe in aggressive representation, whether that means your case gets settled outside of the courtroom or we have to go to trial on your behalf. This level of service is what has made the difference in our results. When we say that we do whatever it takes, we mean that we will investigate, compile the evidence and fight for you until that you get the maximum compensation possible. We also understand that this is a difficult time for you, but our firm wants to alleviate the headache by giving you confidence.

Procrastination can lose a lawsuit, but at Hecht, Kleeger & Damashek, P.C., we work on a contingency fee basis to reduce your risk. You are not responsible for any initial payment or costs during litigation, and all initial consultations are free. We only recover a fee upon the successful conclusion of your case.
