Jacob Oresky & Associates, PLLC

Practice Areas: Construction, Automobile & Personal Injury


Personal injury attorney Jacob Oresky has achieved the rare distinction of having obtained recoveries for clients that have earned a place in the New York Law Journal’s annual “Top Settlements & Verdicts” section for each of the past six years.

So far this year, his firm, Jacob Oresky & Associates, PLLC, has secured a number of outstanding settlements: $7.5 million for a construction worker who fell from a sidewalk bridge, $6 million for a plumber who fell from a ladder at a construction site, $5 million for a demolition worker who was knocked off a ladder by a HVAC duct, and $4 million for an asbestos removal worker who fell from a scaffold.

Of this success, Oresky states, “Our firm’s number one priority is to provide outstanding representation to each client. This includes sparing no expense to investigate and champion our clients’ rights. We establish a strong relationship with each client from the very beginning tohelp them through the difficult time following an accident.”

From the moment Oresky is retained as counsel, he and his team of lawyers work to ensure clients receive maximum compensation for their injuries as well as personal attention and responsive service on every matter. To that end, the firm employs a team approach that addresses all aspects of its clients’ cases—from helping a client obtain lost wages, to securing witness statements, hiring experts, and taking a case through trial to verdict.

Describing his firm’s core approach, Oresky notes, “We’re a smaller firm, and because of that, clients aren’t just a file number—we get to know the people we’re representing and we build long-term relationships with them. In my experience, only by understanding a client’s injuries, having empathy for their situation, and being proactive about litigating their case, can you achieve the sort of results that make a difference.”

Oresky discovered a passion for representing personal injury victims early on in his career, while working as a young lawyer at a general civil litigation firm. As a result, in 1992 he started his own firm focused solely on representing personal injury clients, which has since become one of New York’s go-to personal injury firms, particularly for victims of construction and automobile accidents.

“When compared to other areas of law, personal injury always struck me as the most meaningful,” Oresky states. “There is nothing more rewarding than meeting with clients, learning about what they’ve been through, and then championing their rights and helping them get back on their feet. I like to help people.”
