Queller, Fisher, Washor, Fuchs & Kool has built a reputation for its professionalism and dedication through recovering nearly $1 billion on behalf of our injured clients.
“We are a true litigation firm,” partner Barry Washor says. “We act as David against Goliath and fight the large corporate structures that stand in the way of proper justice for these victims.”
An interest in medicine and law prompted Washor to join an insurance defense law firm in 1981. Though this position provided him with both a legal and medical perspective on medical malpractice litigation, he decided to leave the defense side to become a plaintiff attorney in 1988.
“I felt very strongly about patients’ rights,” he says. “I was more interested in prosecuting cases on behalf of the victims than representing those who were very often responsible for the injuries.”
Washor is a lifetime member of the Multimillion Dollar Advocates Forum and has received an AV® Preeminent™ rating by Martindale-Hubbell®. He has been featured in the New York Super Lawyers since 2007 and was also listed in the 2010 Best Lawyers in America.
Washor credits his firm’s success to its hardworking staff, innovative technology and top expert witnesses. The firm’s selectivity in choosing cases has also been a key factor in its development, though now the firm is opening its doors to the general public by allowing prospective clients to more easily access the firm on their own.
“We can’t turn the hands of time back,” he says. “But what we can do is help these victims live their lives with dignity and respect, secure in the knowledge that their family is provided for.”
