At the personal injury firm of Paris & Chaikin, attorneys are known for their honest, committed, and knowledgeable representation on behalf of seriously injured accident victims.
“We are a trial firm that is not afraid of a courtroom battle,” notes founding member Ian Chaikin. “As trial attorneys, we seek just settlements or just verdicts. Nothing else will do.”
Founding member Jason Paris adds: “Settlement is not an option unless the insurance company offers an amount that compensates our clients for their injuries.”
Paris and Chaikin have focused on personal injury law throughout their careers, recovering millions of dollars for victims of construction and motor vehicle accidents, municipal and premises liability, and many other instances of negligence. No matter the case, they are relentless in their pursuit of justice.
“Our clients and their families can count on us during tough times,” Chaikin says. “We understand the pain and financial hardships our clients are experiencing, and we will always be there for them, helping them get back up on their feet.”
Given their reputations, Paris and Chaikin are often called upon to litigate matters for other lawyers and law firms. Both attorneys are members of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and are on the board of directors of the New York State Trial Lawyers Association.
Paris, who has tried hundreds of cases to verdict over his 17-year career, is also a member of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum. He prepares every case for victory by trial, and his verdicts total millions of dollars in recoveries for his clients.
Chaikin, given his young age of 34, has been selected as a Rising Star by Super Lawyers. He is a licensed attorney in the States of New York, New Jersey, and Florida, and is fluent in English, Spanish, and Hebrew.
For Paris and Chaikin, the truest sign of their success has been their clients’ satisfaction with their services. Throughout their practice, they have emphasized close client relationships, making themselves readily available every day of the week.
“We take pride in calling our clients our friends, and we zealously represent them as such,” Paris explains. “We want to make their lives better in any way we can, so our relationships with our clients don’t end with their cases—we’re there for them long-term with anything they need to help them overcome whatever hurdles they’re facing in life.”
