A Trusted New York Firm With A Wealth Of Experience

At Arye, Lustig & Sassower, P.C., we are local leaders in construction accident litigation and other personal injury matters. We have built a reputation for getting our clients results, because our clients and their needs are at the heart of everything we do. We are a service firm, not a volume-driven business.

Arye, Lustig & Sassower, P.C., was founded in 1965 with a mission of preserving and protecting the rights of injury victims and their families. Very few law firms in New York City, or anywhere else, can match our firm's record of success in personal injury litigation. Over our firm's remarkable history, we have helped countless families recover the compensation they desperately need, and our work at the appellate level has helped to shape New York law. Over the last 50 years, attorneys with the firm have obtained more than $1 billion in recoveries for our clients.

Attorneys With Outstanding Credentials

Our team is led by two partners who bring a wealth of experience, knowledge and skill to their practice. Carl Lustig, our senior trial attorney, and Mitchell Sassower, our managing partner, each offer more than 30 years of experience to personal injury litigation. Our partners are joined by associate attorneys and staff members, each of whom brings skill, energy and commitment to serving our clients.

Throughout his career, Carl Lustig has earned numerous honors that reflect his dedication and drive. Most recently, he was named as one of the top 100 Trial Lawyers in New York state by the National Trial Lawyers Association. Carl is also a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates. Both Mitchell and Carl have been selected for inclusion in New York Super Lawyers and have earned Martindale-Hubbell's highest rating* (AV Preeminent).

Both of our partners have gained renown throughout the legal community, lecturing to lawyers, judges and others on a variety of topics, including trial tactics, construction law, medical evidence and more.

A Proven Approach To Personal Injury Litigation

When someone is seriously injured, that person's attorney must be willing and able to commit significant resources to prepare a case for trial. At Arye, Lustig & Sassower, P.C., we have the financial and investigative resources to build a powerful case in the earliest stages.

While many of our cases settle prior to trial, we prepare every case for the trial that may be necessary. Our willingness to go to court and our track record of many successful jury verdicts allow us to negotiate from strength and achieve favorable outcomes.
