Best Law Firm - U.S. News Medical Malpractice Law: Plaintiffs New York City 2020

In 2019, Paul was recognized by Best Lawyers as the Lawyer of the Year in New City for Medical Malpractice. He is one of the nation’s leading attorneys in the area of weight loss surgery malpractice, including Sleeve Gastrectomy, Gastric Bypass, and Lap-Banding, and has lectured at Harvard Medical School on patient safety issues in weight loss surgery; to the American Association of Hospital Risk Managers on hospital-based gastric bypass issues; and for the American Conference Institute on the management of post-operative leaks following gastric bypass surgery.

Paul wrote a chapter in the 3rd edition of New York Medical Malpractice dealing with the cross-examination of the defense expert, and has lectured throughout the United States on pre-trial and trial practice, and appears regularly on behalf of the New York State Bar Association.

Paul’s aggressive work on behalf of his clients has been recognized for several years, including 2020, when US News recognized the firm as a “First Tier” New York City medical malpractice law firm. Selection to Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive and rigorous peer-review survey (comprising more than 3.9 million confidential evaluations by your fellow top attorneys) and because no fee or purchase is required to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is rightly considered a singular honor. He also has been recognized as a Super Lawyer for a number of years and as a Best Lawyer for more than 10 years.
