Brooklyn Car Accident Attorney | New York City Accident Attorneys
Bronx | Brooklyn | Queens | Manhattan | Staten Island
New York injury attorney Michael Hecht began practicing law in 1989 at a New York City law firm that defended a wide variety of personal injury cases. In the course of doing his work, he became very familiar with the way that defendants and their insurance companies viewed and handled these cases. While at that law firm he also worked with a group of attorneys that defended major airlines and one of the largest and well-known commercial properties in New York City.
Mr. Hecht’s work for the airlines involved handling and trying cases that concerned accidents that happened in airports, such as trip/slip and falls, as well as cases involving injuries occurring on the aircraft, such as injuries due to turbulence and accidents on international flights. He also worked on several cases concerning major aviation accidents. The cases concerning the commercial property included many different types of cases where people suffered personal injuries at or near that property.
In 1999 Mr. Hecht began working for a law firm that represented Plaintiffs in personal injury cases. For more than three years he was the lead trial attorney there handling and trying all types of personal injury cases for injured clients. Many of the cases involved car accidents and serious injuries that happened at construction and work sites. He represented many asbestos workers who fell from scaffolds or ladders and other workers who were injured while they were doing construction or renovation work.
In 2003 Mr. Hecht returned to the defense law firm where he had previously worked. At that time that law firm was representing one of the airlines involved in The 9/11 Litigation. Mr. Hecht spent most of his time working on The 9/11 Litigation with other lawyers in the firm as well as on other types of aviation and personal injury cases.
Lisa Hecht also began her legal career in 1989. She worked for several years at a major national law firm with headquarters in New York City doing corporate work and litigation. In 1992 she left that law firm and began working at a small boutique commercial law firm also in New York City where she focused on doing corporate work, commercial litigation, estate planning, wills, trusts and easement work.
In 2005 Mr. Hecht and his wife Lisa started Hecht & Hecht, LLP in New York City.
