People who have suffered personal injuries deserve full and fair compensation. But insurance companies or responsible parties will not give up such compensation either voluntarily or easily. It takes pressure from an experienced, aggressive and skilled New York personal injury lawyer to obtain just compensation. At Tilem & Associates, PC, our attorneys and staff are committed to recovering full and fair compensation for people who suffer personal injuries in the New York metropolitan area. Whether the injury is the result of a car accident, medical malpractice, slip and fall, construction accident or products liability our attorneys will fight to get you the best possible consultation.

We are not a “mill” for personal injury cases. Each of our clients is treated like a person who needs help during this difficult time, not a file in a file cabinet.
