Richard Soldano

Associate

Richard Soldano is committed to helping individuals and families who have suffered serious personal injuries. Mr. Soldano’s practice involves personal injury, medical malpractice, wrongful death, products liability, and premises liability. He is involved in all stages of litigation and works tirelessly to ensure that our clients receive full compensation for their injuries.

Before joining the firm, Mr. Soldano worked in the New York City community assisting immigrants in learning the English language at the New York Language Center in Queens, New York, and helping unemployed New Yorkers gain meaningful employment with Goodwill Industries International in Brooklyn, New York. While working with the community, Mr. Soldano felt that he could use his passion for helping others and dedication to advocating for those in need in a bigger way. This led him to pursue a career in law.

While studying at Brooklyn Law School, Mr. Soldano interned with Queens County Supreme Court Judge Diccia Pineda-Kirwan, Brooklyn Legal Services Corporation A, and a New York personal injury law firm. These internships allowed him to apply his knowledge of the law in a practical setting and allowed him to continue helping those in need while studying.

After Brooklyn Law School, Mr. Soldano joined a prominent defense law firm where he was able to gain firsthand knowledge and insight as to how defense attorneys litigate personal injury matters. While honing his litigation skills at the defense law firm, Mr. Soldano always felt the urge to devote his time, energy, and practice of law to those who are in need. This drive introduced him to the law firm of Gair, Gair, Conason, Rubinowitz, Bloom, Hershenhorn, Steigman & Mackauf. Mr. Soldano joined our law firm in 2019 to focus on helping those who are seriously injured and are in need of an advocate to fight for their justice.

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.
