Overview

Content is provided by the firm.

SINCE 1919, GAIR, GAIR, CONASON, RUBINOWITZ, BLOOM, HERSHENHORN, STEIGMAN & MACKAUF has staked its superior reputation on its dedication, sensitivity and commitment to personal service. Based in Manhattan but handling cases throughout New York and New Jersey, the firm specializes in the most serious and significant personal injury and general negligence cases, which range from construction site injuries and automobile accidents to medical malpractice and complex products liability claims. Its national reputation as “counsel to the profession” makes it the top choice for fellow members of the Bar who seek the best representation possible for those they refer.

In order to maintain the highest standards of quality and service, GGCRBHS&M takes on only about 100 cases a year. This concentrated focus allows for the meticulous trial preparation such substantial cases require, and ensures that tort victims receive reasonable and just compensation for the full measure of their damages.

The firm carefully screens its cases before assigning each one to a team selected for its relevant expertise. The diverse backgrounds of the firm’s 20 attorneys—including top-rated trial attorneys, renowned appellate court attorneys, a medical doctor (MD/JD), a registered nurse and an emergency medical technician—give each team a unique perspective for evaluating, preparing and trying its case, aided by state-of-the-art support services and courtroom technology.

In the last 10 years alone, GGCRBHS&M’s impressive track record includes more than 350 cases resulting in verdicts or settlements exceeding $1 million. Among the most notable awards were $103 million for a child who sustained brain damage at birth; $90 million for a child with cerebral palsy resulting from birth injuries; $27.5 million for a pedestrian struck by a bus; $26 million for a pedestrian struck by a truck; $17 million for a young man disabled after a failed medical diagnosis; and $14 million on behalf of tenants injured by a pipe explosion due to Con Edison negligence. While the firm’s team of legal and medical experts cannot replace what has been lost through personal injury or death, they can—and do—help restore a life of dignity and financial independence to victims and their families.

In addition, Nine of our present lawyers have been listed in the Best Lawyers in America as seen in New York Magazine: Ben Rubinowitz, Jeffrey Bloom, Anthony Gair, Howard Hershenhorn, Richard Steigman, Stephen Mackauf, Seymour Boyers, Marijo Adimey and Christopher Donadio have all been recognized as Best Lawyers and each of these attorneys have achieved multi-million dollar recoveries on behalf of their clients.

Gair, Gair, Conason, Rubinowitz, Bloom, Hershenhorn, Steigman & Mackauf has enjoyed a long and storied tradition of success for our clients. The firm was founded in 1919 in New York City by Harry A. Gair, one of the most prominent and respected trial attorneys in the country. He was subsequently joined in practice by his wife, Harriet Gair, and eventually Robert L. Conason, the firm's Senior Partner carried on the firm's commitment to the professional and ethical service of our clients until his death. The firm continues with Ben B. Rubinowitz as managing partner together with a core group of partners,who have been with the firm for twenty years and longer. It is this dedication, sensitivity and commitment to personal service that has defined our firm for nearly 100 years and will continue to define it in the future.

Today, the firm is still based in Manhattan and features some of the finest personal injury attorneys in the nation. Our specialized expertise, aggressive advocacy and extensive case preparation have fostered an outstanding record of success at both the trial and appellate levels.

The sum of the verdicts and settlements our attorneys have obtained approaches $1 billion dollars. We believe the key to achieving these results is to limit our case intake to approximately 80-100 cases per year so that extensive personal attention and meticulous trial preparation are afforded to each of our clients on all matters. Because we are selective in the cases we accept, we are able to immerse ourselves in our cases and as a result, we are able to resolve our clients’ cases more quickly than other plaintiff's personal injury firms.

The vast majority of our cases are referred to us by other attorneys or former clients who are intimately familiar with our respected national reputation as "counsel to the profession." However, we are also retained by clients, who after thorough research, recognize our commitment to high quality personal service and thorough case preparation.

We operate what some might call a “boutique firm”—which means we limit our practice to a select group of serious and substantial tort cases, but our results speak for themselves. As a firm, we spend a significant amount of time deciding whether we will accept a case, and, because we only accept a select few cases, we are able to spend more resources than other firms to secure the most knowledgeable experts and to get the best results for our clients.

In the past 2 years our firm has obtained many significant results on behalf of plaintiffs, among them;

Ben Rubinowitz obtained a $71,000,000 verdict for a woman who suffered serious spinal injuries in a car accident. The jury awarded $5 million for her Past Pain and Suffering, 6 Million for her Future Pain and Suffering and 60 Million for her medical needs over her lifetime. Ben was assisted by our associate Rachel Jacobs.

Ben Rubinowitz and Peter Saghir obtained a $41.5 million Verdict for the wrongful death of a City sanitation worker who was struck by a sweeper truck. The jury awarded $1.5 million for conscious pain and suffering (2 to 3 minutes), $15 million for past losses of parental care and guidance and financial support and $25 million for future lost guidance and financial support.

Ben Rubinowitz and Christopher Donadio obtained a $6,250,000 Verdict for a Construction Worker injured on the job when he fell from a scaffold. This construction worker, an immigrant, suffered a fractured elbow and a fractured pelvis. The jury awarded $4,250,000 for past pain and suffering and $2,000,000 for future pain and suffering.

Our newest partner, Marijo Adimey, obtained a $1.27 million verdict in a medical malpractice case in Brooklyn, New York City. The plaintiff claimed that during a colonoscopy, the defendant doctor used excessive force during the passage of the colonoscope through the splenic flexure. Prior to trial, the defendants took a “no pay” position. After a 3 week trial the jury returned a unanimous verdict in favor of the plaintiff.

Our partners Ben Rubinowitz, and Peter Saghir also settled a case during retrial for a man who suffered serious injury when he was struck by a car at an improperly marked New York City roadway construction project for $8,500,000.00.

Additionally, our partners Ben Rubinowitz and Richard Steigman obtained a $7.75 million settlement in a snowmobile accident in Saranac Lake, NY. After a 3 week trial and immediately prior to summations, the case settled for $7,750,000.00. This is the largest settlement ever in Franklin County, New York.

Further, Ben Rubinowitz and Christopher Donadio obtained a $5 million settlement during trial involving a pedestrian injured in a van accident that occurred in Manhattan. At trial, the driver was subjected to intense cross examination by Ben B. Rubinowitz. Following the defendant drivers cross examination the case settled. Our partner, Anthony H. Gair litigated the entire case prior to trial.

Ben Rubinowitz, Chirstopher Donadio and Anthony Gair obtained a $5.85 million settlement for a construction worker who suffered serious spinal injuries when he fell 15-20 feet into the building on which he was working when the roof collapsed in the area where he was working.

Personal Injury Litigation - Plaintiffs
I found the staff at Gair Gair to be professional yet friendly. I was put completely at ease during the entire process and was always able to call and have questions answered. I was confident that my best interests were always considered and I am very pleased with the outcome.
Medical Malpractice Law - Plaintiffs
From the moment I first spoke with Gair, Gair, I knew I was speaking with the best. They listened, they remembered every detail, and they asked pertinent questions about my case, me, my family, and the details of the horrific event that led me to seek help and guidance. Not only did the partner I spoke with initially become intimately familiar with me, my family and my case, but every attorney in the firm, every support staff member and assistant was at least familiar with and truly concerned about me and my case for the duration. They shared their knowledge, professional experiences, and insight with me regularly. They outlined exactly what I could expect in a real timeline, which, turned out to be precisely what they anticipated. They fought, dug, researched, examined, questioned, argued, appealed, deposed, and defended, on my and my son's behalf. They sat next to me for hours upon hours, for days upon days, supporting me while I was deposed repeatedly by several law firms representing the defendants. Their understanding, knowledge, and experience of the medical field and law are astounding. The selfless hours, days, weeks, months and years they put into me and my case were remarkable. I am ecstatically happy with my experience with Gair, Gair, and the outcome of my case. Gair, Gair, Conason, Rubinowitz, Bloom, Hershenhorn, Steigman & Mackauf is highly respected and absolutely at the top of their field as they should be. They earned it, and they deserve it.

Gair, Gair, Conason, Steigman, Mackauf, Bloom & Rubinowitz—specifically Jeff Bloom and his staff—are the most caring, knowledgeable and understanding medical malpractice attorneys that exist.

Dyanand Ramkhelawan
Medical Malpractice Law - Plaintiffs
Gair, Gair could not have been a better choice for our legal needs. From our initial meeting to the time, we closed our case, Gair Gair was fearless in their pursuit of legal justice for my family and compensation. As clients, we had many questions about the circumstances surrounding our mal-practice suit as well as how the actual legal process worked. No question was too small, too big, or pointless to ask. Marijo Adimey and team were always present for us throughout the entire ordeal, and we know they will continue to do so, should we seek their counsel again. Gair, Gair is family!
Armina Gordon

I have been practicing law in New York City and its environs for 32 years, that is, since 1988. Gair, Gair is in my estimation the best personal injury law firm in New York. I have collaborated with Mr. Howard Hershenhorn and other members of this firm on numerous claims and cases and can attest that in each case the manner was handled impeccably and very successfully. Their zeal, competence, timeliness and courtesy are a credit to the New York bar.

Donna Milstein
Medical Malpractice Law - Plaintiffs
Since I currently work as a legal assistant for over 40 years, I am very familiar with the inner workings of a law firm and have a unique understanding of how a case should be handled. Everyone at Gair, Gair, et al., (especially Marijo Adimey, Esq./Howard Hershenhorn, Esq.), has exhibited nothing other than pure professionalism, compassion, honesty and reliability in handling my malpractice case. I have, and will continue to in the future, highly recommend them.
Annette Carrubba
Medical Malpractice Law - Plaintiffs
Everyone I communicated with at this firm made me feel like I was part of their family. My needs, feelings, and concerns were carefully considered and given the needed attention. My counselors were available whenever I needed them and became my personal friends. They came highly recommended and lived up to their reputation. I would recommend them to any of my friends without hesitation. This firm gives attorneys a "good name". Clients matter here. They made me feel like I mattered as a person, that I was valued, and not just a possible source of income for the firm. They earned their fees, and you will find that they will also earn your trust.

Gair, Gair, Conason, Rubinowitz, Bloom, Hershenhorn, Steigman & Mackauf was truly a pleasure to work with. They took extreme care of my situation and were clearly there to right wrongs, not to make a quick buck for themselves. Tony Gair must have a photographic memory because the way he was able to recall specific details was unprecedented. He was pivotal in the successful outcome of my suit. I am grateful to have been introduced to their firm and to be brought on as a client. I'm very lucky.
Medical Malpractice Law - Plaintiffs
Marijo Adimey is an absolute all star! I would highly recommend her and the entire team at Gair, Gair, Conason, Rubinowitz, Bloom, Hershenhorn, Steigman & Mackauf.

Personal Injury Litigation - Plaintiffs
There are simply not enough words of praise to describe my experience with Gair, Gair, Conason, Rubinowitz, Bloom, Hershenhorn, Steigman & Mackauf, particularly for Ben Rubinowitz. Professional, efficient, confident, knowledgeable, reassuring, perseverant, patient, kind, responsive, courteous, dedicated, hard-working, and successful are just a few. Since the day he took me on as a client until the day the case was completed, Ben and his office were superb in every way. I offer additional praise to Peter Saghir and Caroline for their hard work and dedication as well. I will be forever grateful to Ben and his colleagues for all that they have done for me and my family.
LOUISE SPADARO
Medical Malpractice Law - Plaintiffs
Gair, Gair, Conason, Rubinowitz, Bloom, Hershenhorn, Steigman & Mackauf was absolutely amazing. Our lawyer Marijo C. Adimey is someone this firm should feel very lucky to have. Since the day I met her, not knowing what was going to happen, she explained everything to me and my daughters and she made this process something simple to understand, while being very supportive. I feel very lucky to have her on my side. Hopefully I won’t have to go through something like this again, but if I ever do, I would always come back to her.
GARZON ELSA
Personal Injury Litigation - Plaintiffs
I personally had the chance to work with Peter Saghir and Diana Carnemolla at Gair, Gair, Conason, Rubinowitz, Bloom, Hershenhorn, Steigman & Mackauf. Diana helped me in my case prior to the trial and Peter tried my case in court. I have never seen so much passion and dedication from the two of them. During trial week, Peter was always available at any hour of the day, worked tirelessly day after day, and fought relentlessly to help me get justice and a fair compensation. I highly recommend Peter & Diana!
Manisha Narwani
Medical Malpractice Law - Plaintiffs
Having never been involved in a lawsuit before, my family and I learned the legal system can be very frustrating and inhuman. Gair, Gair, Conason, Rubinowitz, Bloom, Hershenhorn, Steigman & Mackau's Howard Hershenhorn and Marijo Adimey are wonderful people who made us feel secure in navigating such a complicated system. They showed compassion for the horrific pain and suffering my father and family experienced at the hands of a terribly run rehab facility / nursing home. Howard and Marijo were great partners in fighting for justice for our family, and we are very thankful for their expertise and friendship along the way.
ALEXANDRA CAHILL

Kristan Bridges
Medical Malpractice Law - Plaintiffs
I was referred to Gair, Gair when my husband passed away during a routine back operation. During this extremely painful time, Mr. Maukauf was truly sympathetic to my loss, but at the same time, explained to me the process that needed to be done before he could determine if in fact, we had a law suit. I was also in constant contact with Ms. Guerriero, the paralegal on my case. Ms. Guerriero answered my many questions and dealt with my frustrations. Finally, almost 4 years after my husband passed away, we went to trial. My trial attorney was Mr. Bloom and he was simply amazing. His confidence, grace, humility, experience and expertise gave me the comfort I needed during this awful time. I placed every ounce of faith in his skill and never once thought that he would not win this case. He didn't let me down. I have referred Gair, Gair to another unfortunate person and will continue to do so if anyone needs a competent, professional, winning firm.
Laura Cardinale
Personal Injury Litigation - Plaintiffs
I have been represented in two separate actions by Gair, Gair, Conason (one case beginning in 1996 and another in 2009). In both cases I was specifically represented by Jerome Katz. He was extremely intelligent, kind and responsive throughout both litigations. At a very difficult time in my life I was able to count on his, and the firm's, consideration and professionalism. Mr. Katz was my trial lawyer in the first action and was with me throughout the second litigation, with Jeffrey Bloom finally settling the case. Both actions resulted in a very successful outcome for me, and I was very grateful to both of these terrific lawyers. I would recommend this firm to anyone.
James Hamilton

I have collaborated with Gair Gair Conason over the past 23 years. During this time they have not once failed to live up to my high expectations. Their competence is borne out by the results they obtain.
Medical Malpractice Law - Plaintiffs
I found myself at the offices of Gair Gair shortly after the untimely passing of my wife following the birth of our first child. I can say without hesitation that this was the most difficult time I have ever experienced in my life, and I was like a lost soul looking for advice in an area of the law about which I knew nothing. From the moment I entered their office, I was treated with the utmost compassion and respect. From our first meeting, it was clear to me that the attorneys at Gair Gair were professionals of the highest order. In all my dealings with Gair Gair, I was made to feel that my case was the most important matter under their consideration. Whenever I called with any question, no matter how frivolous, I got a prompt and professional response. I was kept in the loop at all times, and in fact once received an unsolicited call to let me know that, even though there had been no recent activity in my case, they were still pursuing it diligently. For anyone in the difficult position of having to find a medical malpractice attorney, I would recommend this firm wholeheartedly and without reservation. I believe there is no finer legal practice in the city of New York.

Before a horrible accident happened to my family, we knew this firm by their stellar reputation only (the Amadou Diallo case, among others). After the accident, we were fortunate enough to be directed to them, and their performance was really outstanding, from day one all the way to the triumph.

Jeffrey Bloom did a fine job representing me in a medical malpractice action. He obtained a settlement that exceeded our expectation in a county where the juries don't look favorably on plaintiffs. He was thorough in preparing the case, leaving no stone unturned. This enabled him to achieve a fantastic result. In addition, the associate on the matter as well as the support staff are similarly professional and responsive. I would highly recommend Gair Gair and Jeffrey Bloom to any plaintiff who has suffered a significant personal injury as a result of medical malpractice.
