About Parker Waichman LLP
Parker Waichman Takes on the Insurance Companies and Their Attorneys … So You Can Focus on You
At Parker Waichman, we understand you want justice – but you might not know how to get it on your own. After all, the legal process is complicated and often difficult to understand. If you’ve never hired a lawyer before, you are probably uneasy about the process. These feelings are common – you are not alone. That’s why we are with you every step of the way. Parker Waichman will focus on getting you the justice you deserve … so you can focus on you. There’s why you need Parker Waichman.
We have experience handling cases like yours.
Parker Waichman’s attorneys practice exclusively in select areas of personal injury, defective drugs, defective medical devices, environmental and toxic substances, consumer fraud, and other areas where someone’s rights have been compromised.
As one of the few law firms that have recovered more than one billion dollars in settlements and verdicts for our clients, Parker Waichman prides itself on providing the highest quality legal service to every person who walks through our doors. Our attorneys know that great client-lawyer relationships are built on trust and communication.
At Parker Waichman, our clients are our top priority, and we work tirelessly to give them peace of mind by answering all of their questions and taking care of every aspect of their case so they can focus on what’s most important: their health and recovery.
You get an experienced team
You will be represented by a Parker Waichman team very familiar with the legal issues in your case. Since the 1980s, the firm has represented clients in high profile cases involving asbestos and the weight loss drug “Fen-Phen,” and our team was also part of the landmark 1984 case that argued, for the first time in the United States, that AIDS can be transferred through blood transfusions.
Parker Waichman is dedicated to doing everything we can to ensure that you recover the maximum amount you’re entitled to. You need a team that knows how to explore all avenues of the financial recovery that may be available to you.
Parker Waichman is sought out by other attorneys for our knowledge and experience.
We receive thousands of referrals every year from attorneys around the nation.
We work on a contingency-fee-basis.
You never pay out-of-pocket for representation. Fees and expenses are only collected if you recover.
Our attorneys handle your entire case.
Parker Waichman’s accomplished attorneys understand how to build and strengthen your case so when they negotiate with the insurance companies and their lawyers, they do so from a position of strength. When necessary we take your case all the way to trial. We will fight to get you a financial result that we believe will significantly exceed what you might get on your own, even after the fees and expenses are deducted*.
We have extensive experience inside and outside the courtroom.
Some cases can, with the proper preparation and presentation, be successfully settled before trial. However, at Parker Waichman we never assume that a case will be settled. We prepare every case as if it’s going to trial. In our experience, it’s the only way to maximize the recovery for our clients. Lawyers are often depicted as courtroom advocates, but few ever actually develop the skills needed to try a case in a courtroom. Thanks to our experience and the skills we’ve developed, Parker Waichman has a national reputation with judges and opposing counsel.
While there is no greater praise than that which comes from our clients, we also enjoy hearing from peers and colleagues. We have a perfect rating form AVVO, a nationwide lawyer rating service developed by other attorneys. Parker Waichman has also received a rating of “AV Preeminent” from Martindale-Hubbell with the highest possible rating for professional excellence from other attorneys and judges. Parker Waichman was also listed as a “Top 100 Verdict” by Top Verdicts in the Best Lawyers Publication.
Our founding lawyers, Jerrold S. Parker and Herbert L. Waichman, have also been honored by community leaders and lawmakers, receiving a Proclamation from the New York City Council for outstanding service.
Our firm is also honored to have done our part in helping 9/11 responders and survivors in 2015 pass the Zadroga Act, along with its amendments and its reauthorization. We will always stand for what’s right, especially when it comes to protecting the rights of 9/11 heroes, as well as anyone who lived and worked in the area on that terrible day.
We are always available to answer your questions.
Your legal team at Parker Waichman is available when you need them – day or night. We use state-of-the-art technology and a proprietary case management system to ensure that we have the most up-to-date information
about your case at all times. The bottom line is that justice is delivered
