James Rubinowitz is a personal injury attorney who is devoted to helping our clients obtain justice after suffering catastrophic injury. Mr. Rubinowitz handles all types of cases, including those involving motor vehicle crashes, premises liability, labor law, construction injuries, medical malpractice, product liability, and wrongful death. He is involved in all stages of our clients’ litigation and is passionate about making sure our clients receive full and fair compensation for their injuries. James has assisted in numerous cases that have resulted in large verdicts and settlements, including one that resulted in a $71 million verdict for a woman that was injured after a car crash.

Before joining our firm, Mr. Rubinowitz attended both Emory University and Brooklyn Law School. While at Emory University, Mr. Rubinowitz focused his education on forensic psychology. While completing his degree, he was a research assistant at Emory’s prestigious cognitive psychology lab and conducted studies that help psychologists better understand human reasoning. He was so inspired by his senior thesis research topic, “The Deficits of Eye Witness Testimony in the Court Room”, that Mr. Rubinowitz chose to continue his passion for legal education at Brooklyn Law School. While attending Brooklyn Law School Mr. Rubinowitz found his passion: providing justice for those in need. Following his time at BLS, Mr. Rubinowitz fostered these values by joining a law firm that protected recording artists’ intellectual property rights. Mr. Rubinowitz’s experience in intellectual property law brings a unique perspective to our firm, which has allowed him to excel in all the work he does on behalf of our clients.

As a testament to his skill as a trial attorney, James was asked to lecture to third year law students at Cardozo Law School to demonstrate the intricacies of an opening statement in a Wrongful Death case. The lecture was part of Cardozo’s Intensive Trial Advocacy Program (ITAP), which teaches law students cutting-edge strategies for success in courtroom litigation (see video above).

Client Reviews
★★★★★
"Very compassionate, very efficient and top rate! If you want a team of good lawyers that will not only work hard to win your case but knows how to listen and feel for you as a victim of medical malpractice, this firm is your only choice. Anthony Gair, was always there for us all throughout the case albeit the distance from NY to Manila! Words cannot express how thankful we are to him and his team. Thanks a million!" D.F.

"Everyone I communicated with at this firm made me feel like I was part of their family. My needs, feelings, and concerns were carefully considered and given the needed attention. My counselors were available whenever I needed them and became my personal friends. They came highly recommended and lived up to their reputation. I would recommend them to any of my friends without hesitation. This firm gives attorneys a "good name". Clients matter here. They made me feel like I mattered as a person, that I was valued, and not just a possible source of income for the firm. They earned their fees, and you will find that they will also earn your trust." N.W.

I met Diana Carnemolla and Howard S. Hershenhorn during the darkest time of our lives, when my husband was in a coma with very little chances to survive, due to a car accident. The compassion and professionalism that they showed myself and my family during such a difficult time combined with an incredible willingness to get the best results for us have shown us that we had made the absolute best choice. They not only fought extremely hard for what proved to be a very difficult case, but they also emotionally helped us through this incredible ordeal and have been a caring advocate for our family and our case. They got us the best results we could have expected given the circumstances and didn't give up when things got more challenging. We would absolutely recommend their Law Firm to handle the toughest of cases while providing such a great deal of personal support. Diana proved to be personally invested in our case ultimately seeking the best outcome for our family. We cannot thank them enough for what they have done for us. V.P.
