Paris & Chaikin

Practice Areas: Personal Injury, Motor Vehicle Accidents & Construction Accidents


As the founders of Paris & Chaikin, Jason Paris and Ian Chaikin have established one of New York’s premier personal injury firms—a practice known for its honest, committed, and knowledgeable representation of injury victims.

“Our clients and their families can count on us during tough times,” says Chaikin, who is licensed in the states of New York, New Jersey, and Florida, and speaks English, Spanish, and Hebrew. “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.”

Paris and Chaikin have focused on personal injury law throughout their careers, and they are known for being relentless in their pursuit of justice. Over the years, they have recovered millions of dollars for victims of construction and motor vehicle accidents, municipal and premises liability, and many other instances of negligence.

“We’re fearless in the courtroom, and because of that, we consistently secure significant results at trial for our clients,” says Paris. “In fact, other lawyers often call upon the firm, usually on the brink of trial, to assist in matters involving difficult legal issues and devastating injuries.”

Most recently, the firm achieved the third highest no-fault motor vehicle verdict in the state for 2015, as reported by VerdictSearch. It is now bringing its resources to bear on two high-profile cases: one on behalf of a man who was killed in upstate New York after a drunk driver struck his car head-on while going northbound in a southbound lane; the other for a woman who was injured in a devastating limo crash in Cutchogue that killed four of her friends.

“The key to successful litigation is not only what you do at the end but also how you handle the beginning investigation, as that lays the foundation for your victory,” explains Chaikin. “So our approach is to retain the most accomplished investigators and experts at the start of every case, and then leave no stone unturned in our work-up.”

This dedication has resulted in a number of prestigious accolades. For example, Super Lawyers, which honors no more than five percent of attorneys in each state, has named Paris and Chaikin to its New York publication for three years running. In addition, both attorneys serve on the New York State Trial Lawyers Association’s Board of Directors and have been inducted to the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum.

“Ultimately, we’re here to try and make our clients’ lives better,” says Paris. “And the recognitions we’ve received simply reflect our success in helping injury victims obtain the resources to overcome any hurdle in life.”
