“My commitment to clients is to provide the best legal service possible in the field of personal injury. You may always be assured that you will be provided with an honest opinion as to the merits of your case as well as straight forward advice.” – Joel J. Turney
We represent pedestrians injured in motor vehicle related accidents, pedestrians injured in sidewalk trip and fall related, pedestrians injured in snow and ice related slip and fall accidents; and pedestrians injured in the negligent maintenance of stairways, subway platforms, parks and other public areas. We handle bicycle accident cases in the five boroughs of New York City – Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens and Staten Island.
All consultations are without charge. The legal fee (standard one-third) is contingent upon recovery. In other words, if we don’t win or settle your case, there is no cost to you. This firm pays all expenses in the prosecution of the action. Despite the fact that the rules of attorney ethics require that the client remain responsible for expenses incurred, the Law Firm of Joel J. Turney has yet, in the many years of practice, to seek reimbursement from a client for expenses where there has been no recovery.
Our staff is fluent in Spanish and Portuguese. Interpreters are available for other languages as well.
We utilize a proprietary case management and filing system that significantly adds to the accuracy of presentation and efficiency in the litigation process. Clients are immediately informed when an offer of settlement is made during any part of a legal proceeding. Decisions about resolutions are in the sole discretion of the client. We will only offer advice (based upon years of experience in the field of accident-injury litigation).
Because there are many attorneys who represent the interests of plaintiffs in pedestrian-personal injury matters, this firm recognizes the responsibility and privilege of being chosen to handle your case and to represent your interests through-out the legal process.
