Attorney Profile

As the founder of the New York City law firm Jacob Oresky & Associates, PLLC, Jacob Oresky exclusively represents plaintiffs throughout the New York City metropolitan area and statewide in personal injury cases. He has successfully represented clients in a wide variety of personal injury cases that include construction accidents, scaffolding and ladder accidents, workplace accidents, auto accidents, building accidents, premises liability cases and wrongful death accidents. His firm also accepts cases related to medical malpractice and lead poisoning.

Following his graduation from Pace University School of Law, Mr. Oresky worked at a small multidisciplinary law firm in Westchester County. Within a year, he had established himself as an astute litigator and assumed control of the firm's civil practice before being recruited by a rival firm, at which he narrowed his focus exclusively to personal injury law. Mr. Oresky went into private practice in 1992, and his firm has since represented more than 1,000 clients between its three locations.

In his 22 years of private practice, Mr. Oresky has obtained numerous multimillion-dollar settlements and verdicts for his clients, including an $8 million award for a construction worker who fell from a scaffolding. He also procured $2 million on behalf of a victim in a case involving improper use of force by police and $1.5 million for an injured passenger in an auto accident case.

Admitted to practice in New York in 1987, Mr. Oresky is also licensed to practice before the U.S. District Courts for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York. He belongs to the New York State Bar Association, the Bronx County Bar Association and the New York State Trial Lawyers Association.
