I was badly injured in an auto accident that required surgery and lost time from work. The other driver was completely at fault, but he only had $25,000 in insurance coverage. I chose Mr. Lavin as my attorney, and I am so happy that I did. Mr. Lavin recognized that there was another insurance policy that we could go after. We settled with the first insurance company for the maximum of $25,000, and pursued the second which resulted in a $825,000 settlement. Mr. Lavin’s office is smart, aggressive, and very professional in pursuit of their clients’ claims. They stand up to the insurance companies and don’t take “No” for an answer. I highly recommend The Law Office of Thomas J. Lavin.

Lavin did precisely that and won! Lavin’s office accomplished this legal victory in less than two years. Amazing! I strongly recommend the Law Offices of Thomas J. Lavin to anyone who may have been injured in an accident.

My wife and I speak Spanish as our primary language and our English is ok, but not great. Mr. Lavin’s office is very close to our home and whenever we have any legal questions or concerns, we always felt comfortable going to Mr. Lavin’s office for help. Mr. Lavin and his entire staff have always helped us, and on many occasions, he would not even charge us. We feel happy when we go to his office. They are very busy, but they are very positive. They laugh a lot, and that is a good thing. They treat us with respect, and we like that. I would recommend Mr. Lavin's office to anyone who needs a lawyer.

The first thing I noticed about the Law Office of Thomas J. Lavin is how busy they are. The minute I walked through the door you could hear the phones ringing from everywhere, but he had the staff to service all of those clients. The other thing I noticed was how organized, clean, and neat his office was. I was also very impressed with the way Mr. Lavin and his staff dress. No sneakers, and no blue jeans. This is a suit and tie operation. I was amused at how Mr. Lavin could jump back and forth from one staff member who had a question to another who had a concern that needed to be addressed. I would never go anywhere else!

One of the first things I learned about Mr. Lavin is that he is truly a student of the law. He has been practicing personal injury law for more than 30 years and his knowledge is second to none. I was very impressed with his ability to cite lengthy statutes, word for word. I was even more impressed with his ability to analyze a factual situation from a legal standpoint to reveal, the good, the bad, and the ugly. Whenever he rendered a legal opinion about a legal matter that affected me I felt confident that he did not leave out any relevant details.

I retained The Law Offices of Thomas J. Lavin back in 2003 when my 6 year old daughter fell from an unprotected park jungle gym. Her arm broke so severely that the almost lost her arm. Several micro vain surgeries later, and it was saved. Attorney for Thomas Lavin, John O'Halloran took the case. His compassion and his steadfast knowledge of the law went into play. My daughter won her case after deliberation with NYC's best attorneys. Thomas Lavin and John O'Halloran have been representing my family for many years, as my daughter is now 20. They are a part of my family and my child's heroes. The Lavin support team is also second to none. I recommend this firm to all.

I was a passenger in a taxi cab that was involved in an intersection collision 2 years ago. I wasn't sure if I had a case since I was a passenger, but I was in severe pain and contacted the Law Office of Thomas J. Lavin to discuss my options. The paralegal, Christine was extremely friendly and immediately referred me to my current physical therapist. They made sure all of my medical bills were paid through the cab's insurance company and they even settled my case without having to go to court! I am very happy with the choice I made in contacting the Law Office of Thomas J. Lavin and would absolutely refer them to anyone.

I was involved in a rear end collision over the summer of 2014, which landed me in the hospital. While waiting to speak to a doctor about my injuries, I turned to google to look for an attorney and there was The Law Office of Thomas J. Lavin. Within a few hours Mr. Lavin showed up by my bed side. He reassured me that he was going to fight to get the compensation that I deserve. My case recently settled and I couldn't be more pleased with my decision to hire Thomas Lavin as my attorney. I would highly recommend him if you have been involved in any type of accident.

The Law Office of Thomas J. Lavin represented my daughter in a slip and fall accident that occurred after a winter storm. The compensation they were able to get from the insurance company was beyond our expectations. I would highly recommend The Law Office of Thomas J. Lavin to all my family and friends.

Anthony Dohnert

I had an attorney for a legal case and I was very unhappy with the representation I was receiving from that other attorney. Once I consulted with the Law Office of Thomas J. Lavin I became convinced that he was the attorney for me. Without his legal knowledge, experience and guidance, I would not have received the very beneficial result that I did. Moreover, since that time, I have referred other people to Mr. Lavin as well, and all of them thank me to this day. Mr. Lavin and his entire staff are very professional and I would strongly recommend his law office to anyone who may be in need of his legal expertise.

Durante los últimos cinco años, el Sr. Lavin y su firma me han ayudado con una variedad de asuntos legales. Se han ido constantemente y de forma global por encima y más allá del llamado del deber garantizando que mis intereses legales estaban siendo protegidos. En muchas ocasiones he dicho que el señor Lavín es mi ángel. Sinceramente, creo esto.

I was involved in a car accident in May of 2012. I had medical bills and lost wages that the insurance company refused to pay. They told me that my injuries could not have possibly been from the accident. That’s when I knew I needed a lawyer. A friend of mine had received a large settlement from her car accident years back, so I asked her what to do and she insisted I call her lawyer, Tom Lavin, which I did. Mr. Lavin took my case and immediately filed a lawsuit on my behalf in The Bronx Supreme Court. Mr. Lavin ultimately was able to settle my case for the full amount allowed under the defendant’s insurance policy. Now all of the money I lost as a result of the accident has been paid back, plus extra. Thank you, Law Office of Thomas J. Lavin!

Me pareció que el señor Lavín siempre estuvo ahí para mí, ya que su cliente cuando yo lo necesitaba. Si él no estaba en la oficina cuando llamé, él siempre me devolvió las llamadas telefónicas el mismo día. El uso de la tecnología que tiene en lugar de mantenerse en contacto, se comprueba su correo de voz y correo electrónico regularmente durante el día laboral y fuera de horas. Yo lo he mencionado a familiares y amigos a la Oficina de Derecho de Thomas J. Lavín.

Desde mi primera reunión con los abogados de Las Oficinas Legales de Thomas J. Lavín, estaba claro que se preocupaban por mí y mi caso. La Compañía de Seguros se ofreció a resolver mi caso, pero la oferta era muy baja. Llevarlos a la corte era arriesgado, porque aunque había una posibilidad de que iba a terminar con nada. Yo estaba muy pánico sobre esto, pero el abogado explicó todo con tanta claridad y con paciencia. Él realmente me tranquilizó y yo era capaz de pensar las cosas. Me decidí por la demanda y la compañía de seguros terminé la resolución del caso por el triple de la cantidad ofrecida inicialmente. Estoy tan contenta de haber aprovechado el riesgo y estoy muy agradecido a este oficina de abogados.
