Both Chaikin and LaPenna are well regarded litigators who represent injury victims directly or as trial counsel to other firms who rely upon the trial expertise of Chaikin LaPenna, PLLC to secure the best possible results.
“We are a firm with powerful resources” says Chaikin, who is licensed in the states of New York, New Jersey, and Florida, and who is fluent in English, Spanish, and Hebrew. “From the moment our firm is retained on a case, we give it our undivided attention while working with the top experts, specialists, and investigators to prepare for victory at trial. No matter the case, we will never be outworked, outfought, or outspent.”
Chaikin LaPenna aggressively litigate construction accidents, motor vehicle and tractor trailer crashes as well as a wide range of premises cases including ceiling collapses, elevator accidents and trip and falls. Having recovered multiple millions on behalf of their clients this year alone, their success on behalf of their clients has been a testament to their relentless pursuit for justice. Partner LaPenna adds that “our goal is not only to serve the best interest of our
client, but to serve the interest of our client’s family as we recognize that a serious injury affects the entire family.”
Chaikin and LaPenna both understand that the stakes are high when their clients come to them after their lives are forever changed as a result of another’s negligence. It is for that reason that they believe in always working with a sense of urgency and passion to ensure the ultimate results for their clients. Chaikin says that “we approach each case with personal attention. The consequences of the accident are personal to our clients and they are personal to us. If the
lawyer does not take the case personally, he or she has no business representing the client.” LaPenna adds that “we fight for justice until justice prevails and our clients receive the highest possible recovery.”
