As one of New York City’s premier personal injury law firms, Paris & Chaikin is a highly effective partner for accident victims in their pursuit of justice. Founders Jason Paris and Ian Chaikin have focused on personal injury law throughout their careers, and their unwavering dedication to their clients is the foundation of their practice.
“From the start, we wanted to make sure insurance companies knew that with our firm they were dealing with zealous advocates who would fight hard for their clients,” Paris says. “And because of that aggressive approach, insurance companies now recognize that we will not be outworked or outfought in our cases.”
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 Multi Million Dollar Advocates Forum and also serve on the board of directors of the New York State Trial Lawyers Association. In addition, they have been included in the prestigious Super Lawyers publication—a testament to their hard work and successful achievements—and Chaikin, who is fluent in English, Spanish, and Hebrew, is a licensed attorney in the states of New York, New Jersey, and Florida.
Together, Paris and Chaikin prepare every case for victory by trial, achieving verdicts totaling millions of dollars in recoveries for their clients. And they continue to secure some of New York’s most significant results for victims of construction and motor vehicle accidents, municipal and premises liability, and many other instances of negligence: Most recently, Chaikin obtained a verdict of $2.5 million in a motor vehicle accident case where both sides accused the other of running a stop sign. In addition, Paris obtained a verdict of $2 million against the City of New York where the city was refusing to accept liability.
“These cases were prime example of how we fight for justice until justice is done and our clients are compensated for the serious injuries they sustained at the fault of others,” Chaikin says. “From the moment our firm is retained on a case, we give it our undivided attention while working with the top experts, specialists, and investigators to prepare for victory at trial.”
In addition to having the knowledge and resources to pursue justice and maximum compensation for its clients, the firm is dedicated to realizing its mission of providing clients with the personal attention their cases demand. To that end, they emphasize close client relationships, offering round-the-clock service, including evening and weekend appointments and home and hospital visits. Not to mention, the firm’s partners provide their cellphone numbers to all of their clients so that they are easily accessible.
“We view securing compensation for our clients as being just one part of what we do,” Chaikin says. “Ultimately, we’re here to try and make our clients’ lives better, and that means not just obtaining the resources for them to accomplish that, but also building relationships with them that don’t end when their cases end—we’re there for them long-term with anything they need to help them overcome any hurdles in life.”
