Gair, Gair, Conason, Rubinowitz, Bloom, Hershenhorn, Steigman & Mackauf

Practice areas: Personal Injury, Medical Malpractice, Wrongful Death & Construction Accidents


Founded in 1919, Gair, Gair, Conason, Rubinowitz, Bloom, Hershenhorn, Steigman & Mackauf (GGCRBHS&M) is one of the oldest and most well-established personal injury law firms in New York City. Representing only the most seriously injured plaintiffs, the firm has become synonymous with justice for the catastrophically injured.

“Our primary goal has always been to obtain justice for our clients and their families. Although we can’t replace what our clients have lost, we work tirelessly to achieve superior results that will help restore them to a life of dignity and independence,” says managing partner, Ben Rubinowitz.

While GGCRBHS&M is headquartered in Manhattan, its attorneys regularly handle cases throughout New York and New Jersey, including some of the most significant personal injury and negligence cases in the country. In the past decade alone, GGCRBHS&M has achieved verdicts or settlements exceeding $1 million in more than 500 cases, and it has achieved more than $1 billion in total verdicts and settlements for its clients.

“The key to these results is the fact that we limit our case intake to about 80 cases per year,” says Anthony Gair, a partner at the firm. “That selectively allows us to devote our firm’s full resources and attention to each case from start to finish. It is our meticulous trial preparation and our ability to take a case to verdict that defines our success.”

Some of the firm’s most notable results include $103 million for a child who sustained brain damage at birth; $90 million for a child with cerebral palsy resulting from birth injuries; $26 million for a pedestrian struck by a truck; $28 million for a SUV passenger injured in a collision with a tree; $16 million for a construction worker who was injured when he fell from a scaffold; and $14 million for tenants who were injured in a pipe explosion resulting from Con Edison’s negligence.

“There is nothing more important to us than our clients. Whether it is a client who has been severely injured or a client who has lost a loved one, we approach each case with the highest level of dedication and commitment, knowing that the result will determine, in large part, the quality of life our clients will have going forward,” says Howard Hershenhorn, a partner at the firm.

In the past three months alone, our firm has had three settlements well in excess of $10 million each in addition to a $27.5 million dollar settlement for a woman who lost her leg after being struck by a NYC bus. Because of our continued success in prosecuting personal injury and medical malpractice cases, our attorneys have been repeatedly recognized by the legal community for their expertise. A total of nine partners and associates have been listed in the The Best Lawyers in America and have been named in New York Super Lawyers. The firm also includes attorneys who are members of the Inner Circle of Advocates and Fellows of the prestigious International Academy of Trial Lawyers. Notably, our firm was selected by the National Law Journal and Law.com to be part of the “TOP 50 LIST OF AMERICA’S ELITE TRIAL LAWYERS.”
