Law Offices of Michael K. Eidman


Looking back on days spent running ninety personal injury, medical malpractice, and construction accident cases simultaneously, Michael Eidman wonders how he managed to do it. Eventually, Mr. Eidman restructured his practice to run a small, select caseload, with approximately twelve to fifteen cases in suit at a time. Now, he is able to provide his clients with the utmost attention; when a case must be tried, Mr. Eidman will typically devote an entire month or more preceding the trial primarily to that one case.

In the name of “tort reform”, insurance companies and big business have caused juries to grow ever more skeptical. Mr. Eidman spends tremendous time and effort preparing his clients for their day in court, teaching them that it is part of their job to get juries “on their side”. Case in point: recently, having spent dozens of hours working one-on-one with Mr. Eidman in advance of his medical malpractice trial, an Egyptian chef was awarded a seven figure verdict by a Manhattan jury. The case was tried before a judge who had presided over fifteen consecutive defendants’ verdicts in malpractice cases dating back three years.

From the initial client meeting until settlement or verdict, Mr. Eidman and his client work as an open, communicative team. “Even when I am in court, I will call you back the same day. That’s a promise,” says Mr. Eidman. His clients are fiercely loyal to him; a tourist who was badly injured by a high-profile defendant was recently referred by a satisfied former client, the taxi driver who drove her to the hospital.
