About Flanzig & Flanzig, LLP
Flanzig and Flanzig carries on a 60-year tradition of representing seriously
injured New Yorkers. The firm’s roots date back to 1956 when Cathy’s
and Daniel’s father founded the law firm (then known as Joachim
and Flanzig) where he started his practice on lower Broadway in New York
City. That firm now dissolved, today Cathy and Daniel continue his legacy
operating out of the same office as well as the addition of New York City
and Queens locations. The firm has successfully expanded into additional
areas of law, including bicycle injuries and crashes, pedestrian crashes
and accidents, nursing home abuse and neglect, construction accidents,
as well as other job related injuries.
The firm's reputation as aggressive trial attorneys combined with a
wealth of resources, experience, and willingness to try our cases places
us in a unique position as being one of the most respected personal injury
trial firms in the New York Metropolitan Area. Whether it is the simplest
of auto crashes to complex litigation, we are ready to take a verdict.
Our own personal experiences help shape our firm. Daniel's experience
as an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) and in the area of Federal Law
Enforcement has increased their ability to handle the cases of uniformed
officers, Fire Fighters, and other first responders. Cathy remains in
charge of the firm’s appellate practice litigation unit, no-fault
department, and the prosecution of uninsured and under-insured (SUM) motorist
claims. She is dedicated to legal issues medically unique to women such
as failure to diagnosis breast cancer and other medical malpractice claims.
She assists the firm’s clients in a variety of other insurance claims
including the negotiation of medical liens, such as Medicare, Medicaid
and workers compensation.
