Over 18 years ago, Leav & Steinberg was founded by two partners. Dan and Eddy had met at a prior plaintiffs firm and decided to create their own firm. That was 1999. They started off renting space within a small firm in lower Manhattan. We rented just two small offices and had no staff. We did have tons of energy and desire to be successful. With about 29 clients we represented at our former job, the firm was founded. After 18 years the firm has grown into one of the premier NYC personal injury firms. We now have three partners, six associates and a staff totaling 25. Just last month Edward Steinberg was elected as the Treasurer or the New York State Trial Lawyers Association. He continues to be a board member as well as an Officer.
The firm has represented and successfully concluded by trial, settlement, or arbitration well over $200 million dollars in cases. We have been referred matters by firms that don’t handle plaintiff cases. But most telling the firm has grown mostly by referrals from old happy clients. At present, the firm represents over 900 clients.
Given the extraordinary growth, the firm had outgrown our previous Manhattan space at 14o Broadway. As of July 1, 2017, the firm has signed a new lease for nearly 10,000 square feet at 75 Broad Street. The firm designed the new space from scratch and has built an office that is both modern as well as exceptionally functional and built for the continued success we hope to have.
