Joseph Bavaro

“I love the challenge of proving people wrong, thinking that we’re ambulance chasers. I’m all about ‘Let me show you how much I can do for you, how much I can care. Let me show you I’m not that. I say it with my actions more than my words.’  Read more…

Dan Solinsky

Daniel Solinsky says it was fated for him to be an attorney, as he comes from a family of attorneys. But unlike the rest of his family, who worked in the courts, Dan chose litigation, starting in the Bronx District Attorney’s office after earning his JD from St. John’s University. He served in the prestigious A34 trial bureau, prosecuting violent and non-violent felony matters including armed robbery, grand larceny, assault and firearm possession. Learn more…

Chris Pogan

Associate Christopher Pogan attended college with an eye toward working in business, but before long came to the realization that working in a corporate setting wasn’t really what he wanted to do. “Corporations do what’s best for the shareholders, more than what’s best for the people. Insurance companies are like that as well, with shareholders uppermost in mind. Representing the plaintiff in personal injury cases, I get to have a tangible result of helping people who are at a bad time in their lives.” Learn more…

Steve Gokberk

Steve Gokberk knew from the time he was 15 years old that he wanted to be an attorney. A class in American Civil Law taught by a great teacher sparked his interest and inspired him to join his high school mock trial team. “The cases we were studying all related to torts and personal injury and the idea of helping people to right wrongs resonated with me right from the start, and from that moment I directed all my future studies toward law.”  Learn more…
