The anatomy of a personal injury accident and the ensuing lawsuit is a thing of beauty. In an age where the personal injury lawyer glorifies mass tort litigation, MDLs, and class actions, I prefer the challenge of the car crash, slip and fall on debris or ice, construction worker accident, the defective product or the negligent doctor or hospital. The interesting prospective client ranges from a hodgepodge of very wealthy individuals to illegal alien. They are of all races and creeds: a mix of the 120-plus nationalities that populate the five boroughs: doctors, lawyers, judges, construction workers, Jews, Muslims, and the list goes on and on.

The office of a New York personal injury attorney must have Spanish speaking personnel as well as assistants that can translate Chinese and Korean to round out their staff.
