Staten Island Personal Injury Attorney

Best Law Firm 2017

Since 1992, Louis Grandelli and his associates have assisted innocent victims who have suffered serious injury or death due to the negligent conduct of others. The main office of Law Offices of Louis Grandelli, P.C. is located in the financial center of downtown New York City (only 2 blocks from the Staten Island Ferry). However, we also maintain a Staten Island office for the convenience of our local clients. We feel that all of our clients benefit from our presence in Manhattan due to the prestige it carries with defense firms and insurance carriers. It has also enabled us to represent widely diverse clientele and handle a variety of serious personal injury and wrongful death cases which has greatly enhanced the experience of our team. In fact, dozens of local attorneys have chosen to refer their personal injury cases to us based upon our work ethic, dedication, personal attention to clients and outstanding achievements.

In recognition of our firm’s outstanding results in catastrophic injury and wrongful death cases, our office has been selected by Best Lawyers as a Best Law Firm for Personal Injury Litigation - Plaintiffs in New York City for the past three years. In addition, Louis Grandelli has been selected by his peers in the New York State Bar to Super Lawyers in New York for the past six years in a row, and has been selected to Best Lawyers in America for the past three years. Best Lawyers is the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession, and has the gold standard for accuracy and integrity, based upon exhaustive peer-review surveys, in which tens of thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. The selection process for Super Lawyers is similarly based upon a rigorous, multi-phased rating process. Peer nominations and evaluations are combined with independent research and each candidate is evaluated on twelve indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement.

Since our firm is very selective in the cases that we choose to handle, unlike many other local firms, we are able to invest the time and money required to maximize the recovery for our clients and have consistently proven ourselves over the years by obtaining numerous multi-million dollar recoveries for accident victims. There are many local law firms who boast that they will "fight for your rights", and state that they have "filed suit for millions of dollars", but if you’ve been seriously injured in an accident, your decision on which law firm is best for you and your family should be based upon the actual results the attorneys have achieved. Our cases of note demonstrate that we have obtained a damages verdict of $16 million and recovered a record setting $9 million on behalf of one accident victim, and many other substantial recoveries which are among the largest in New York State.
