Senior Partner Jeffrey Kimmel is highly regarded for his fierce litigation style and persistent drive to achieve optimal results for his clients.
Jeff focuses on medical malpractice and complex personal injury cases, where his keen legal acumen, sharp analytical skills and sincere compassion for his clients contributes to the growing number of successful verdicts and settlements for SSKB, which exceeds $500 million to date.
Jeff’s ultimate objective is to deliver unsurpassed service and results, while ensuring that clients’ needs remain a top priority for the firm.
“For clients, considering a lawsuit can be very intimidating and overwhelming. As an attorney, my goal is to create a trusted relationship with clients so they are comfortable knowing that our firm’s sole priority is to work diligently on their behalf to ensure the best possible outcome. I want all our clients to know that we are not only their attorneys, but people who understand the sensitivity of their matter on a human level and seek justice for them at any cost.”
Ambitious in nature and a true born leader, Jeff’s successes started early when he was recruited by top universities after leading his high school soccer team to a state championship. Jeff chose the University of Pennsylvania and graduated from the prestigious Wharton School of Business. He continued his studies at Brooklyn Law School, where he received the coveted American Jurisprudence Award in both Legal Writing and Appellate Advocacy, recognizing and rewarding his talents for compelling writing and oral presentations.
After four years as an Assistant District Attorney in the Bronx, Jeff joined an insurance defense firm that focused on medical malpractice defense. He brought that experience to Salenger, Sack, Kimmel & Bavaro, where he soon became a partner.
“I’m extremely fortunate to be a part of the continuous growth and success of SSKB. The lawyers and staff all work hard to achieve meaningful results for our clients, and restore for them some security and normalcy in their lives after a traumatic event. There’s a lot of satisfaction in that.”
