Since its inception in 1967, The Sanders Firm has become one of the country’s premier personal injury, mass tort, and medical malpractice firms, with a combined staff of more than 50 attorneys, paralegals, secretaries, and clerks, who serve more than 35,000 clients in New York alone. In addition, the firm’s national scope allows it to represent clients across the country and abroad.
“We have a track record of achieving exceptional results for accident victims and those who have suffered from the improper production and marketing of pharmaceuticals and medical devices,” says Founding Partner Stanley Sanders. “When it comes to our clients, we follow the highest standards of care.”
The firm’s attorneys are known as “lawyers’ lawyers,” having recovered on hundreds of cases this year that were referred by dozens of different law firms throughout the country. Indeed, the firm has a reputation for working extensively with other attorneys—accepting referrals from them, assisting them in litigation and specific practice areas, and absorbing their practices altogether.
Over the past decade, The Sanders Firm has experienced exponential growth, in part because of the frequency of referrals, merger offers, and counsel requests that it receives from other attorneys and law firms. In 2005, The Sanders Firm merged with a mass-tort litigation firm founded by Senior Partner Marc D. Grossman. Most recently, the firm added Edward J. Nitkewicz and his legal practice—a small litigation practice concentrating on the representation of personal injury plaintiffs.
The tireless advocacy of the firm’s attorneys is reflected in the extensive list of annual multimillion dollar verdicts achieved. The firm also remains at the forefront of pharmaceutical product liability cases, and is currently engaged in litigation against the manufacturers of Chantix, Reglan, Levaquin, Yaz, Propecia, and Beyaz. “We offer our clients both experience and a proven track record,” Grossman notes. “Our work is evidence of the positive impact we can make on our clients’ lives.”
In a recent case, The Sanders Firm represented an accomplished triathlete, Kevin, who was rendered a quadriplegic after suffering a serious injury from a defective bicycle. The firm fought relentlessly to recover the essential financial assistance that Kevin required. “My attorney gave me a shot to rebuild my life without worrying about paying my bills,” Kevin notes. “I have a life because The Sanders Firm did their job right.”
The Sanders Firm has maintained its reputation as a leader in its field by building a foundation of legal talent with the sharpest skills and the broadest experience. In addition to Stanley Sanders and Marc Grossman, the firm’s partners include Senior Trial Attorney Martin Block; Joseph Viener and Meryl Sanders Viener, who manage the firm’s medical malpractice and alien tort claims department; Senior Trial Attorney David Woycik; Phyllis L. Sanders, who manages the firm’s personal injury practice and general liability unit; Douglas Sanders, who manages all legal briefing, appellate work, and the firm’s technology infrastructure and development; mass torts managing attorney Randi Kassan; and trial attorneys Mark Bernstein and Michael Villeck.
