Jeffrey I. Schwimmer, Esq., serves Of Counsel to the Law Offices of Elizabeth A. Douglas, PLLC. He is a civil trial litigator concentrating in the personal injury and medical malpractice fields of law, who has dedicated himself to providing aggressive representation to victims who have been seriously injured due to the negligence or professional malpractice of others, as well as from defective products, dangerous property conditions, construction site accidents or injuries suffered during the course of employment, just to mention a few examples. With a career spanning 37 years, he has successfully recovered millions of dollars for his clients; many having been referred by other attorneys and a number who are attorneys themselves.
Mr. Schwimmer obtained his J.D. Law Degree from Gonzaga University School of Law, and is admitted to practice in the State of New York, The Federal District Courts for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York, as well as the Supreme Court of the United States. He has represented clients throughout the State of New York, and has also represented New Yorkers in other States who were injured during the course of their travels. Additionally, he is an active Arbitrator for the Civil Court of the City of New York.
The early part of his career was as a trial lawyer in a defense firm hired by many of the largest national and international liability insurance conglomerates. In 1988, he resigned his partnership in that firm and opened his own firm; dedicated to assisting accident victims by, in part, using the knowledge of the workings and practices of the insurance industry to the benefit and advantage of his injured clients. He shares with Attorney Douglas the belief that clients are to be dealt with respect, and not just as another file, which is the foundation to achieving the best results possible for the client.
