Firm Details

Aaronson Rappaport Feinstein & Deutsch, LLP was founded in 1993 by four experienced trial partners with similar goals. We sought to create a firm with a set of core values dedicated to client service, legal excellence and personal integrity. Today - with over seventy lawyers, twenty-eight of whom are partners averaging twenty-five years of experience - we are a sought-after firm with a well-earned reputation as one of the most successful defense litigation practices in New York. No firm is more aggressive in protecting its clients’ interests or effective in the cost efficient management of cases. Indeed, in 2013 we were the only defense firm in New York ranked nationally in U.S. News–Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” as a Tier 1 Defense Firm in both Product Liability and Medical Malpractice and a Metropolitan New York Tier 1 Firm in Product Liability, Medical Malpractice and Personal Injury Defense.

Aaronson Rappaport has a timeless philosophy – one that directs our efforts in everything we do. We focus on our clients – their interests, reputations and financial wellbeing and factor their needs into every decision we make. We map out customized strategies and follow with decisive action. Our wealth of experience -more than 500 verdicts taken – combined with relentless advocacy and methodical preparation is the foundation of our success.

Litigation makes up ninety-five percent of our caseload and has been the focus of our firm since its inception. Unlike many attorneys at larger, general practice “Wall Street” firms, our trial lawyers are always prepared to go to trial because we possess the expertise, the confidence and the ability to defend any claim. Whether we see a lawsuit through trial and verdict, achieve early disposition through favorable settlement or pursue every available opportunity to dismiss a claim, we maintain an aggressive and pro-active approach on behalf of our clients. By leveraging the power of our reputation we’re often able to fashion cost-effective resolutions before our clients incur significant legal expenses.

While medical malpractice defense is our most widely known area of expertise, Aaronson Rappaport is equally accomplished in all of our practice areas including health care law, toxic tort, automobile and general product liability defense for Fortune 500 clients. Success in these arenas hinges on our understanding of the complex medical, scientific and engineering issues crucial to the proper management of cases from pre-trial through trial. Our work defies conventional thinking and relies on experience, creativity and intelligence to solve the intricate problems necessary to mount a successful defense.
