Attorney Judd Kleeger

Judd Kleeger


As a partner with Hecht, Kleeger & Damashek, P.C., Judd F. Kleeger is dedicated to helping those who have been harmed by the wrongful conduct of others. On this, he says, “it is rewarding to assist clients that have experienced a catastrophic event in their lives and help them get back on their feet.” Like the other personal injury attorneys at the firm, Mr. Kleeger strives to secure clients the compensation they need to move forward with their lives after an accident.

Mr. Kleeger knows that the life of an injury victim is challenging after an accident. Following a car crash, you may be unable to drive and get yourself to and from work efficiently. If you suffered from a traumatic brain injury, you’re unable to live the life you were once accustomed to – at least for an extended period of time. And after a truck wreck, you may be out of work for months. Mr. Kleeger’s goal as an experienced NYC injury attorney is to hold the parties that caused you this harm accountable for their negligent and reckless misconduct. He strives to get his clients fair and full compensation for their injuries, and hopes to get them back to their pre-accident life as quickly as possible.


After graduating from Boston University and the Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center, he knew he wanted to center his legal career on helping those who incurred harm through no fault of their own.

If in the course of your case an acceptable settlement can’t be reached, he will take your case to trial. “Preparation is something we take very seriously, and it is the key to successfully representing our clients,” he says.
