Attorney Profile

Attorney Charles E. Wisell is a partner with the Lipsig Shapey Manus & Moverman, P.C., law firm, which has office locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn, New York. Widely regarded as one of the top trial advocates in the country, Mr. Wisell represents plaintiff clients throughout New York who have personal injury claims arising from motor vehicle accidents, construction accidents, slip-and-fall accidents, and other acts of negligence or wrongdoing.

Throughout his career spanning more than 23 years, Mr. Wisell has earned a reputation for taking on the tough cases other attorneys regard as unwinnable. He also devotes a significant portion of his practice to advocating on behalf of undocumented immigrants and Hispanic clients who may have little or no other recourse when suffering an injury or loss caused by someone else's negligence.

From his efforts, Mr. Wisell has recovered millions of dollars in settlements and awards for his clients, earning his memberships in the Million Dollar and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forums. Among his most recent victories, he helped secure a $6.7 million verdict for the victim of a construction accident as well as settlements of $4.75 million and $4.5 million, respectively, for workers injured because of ladder collapses. In addition, Mr. Wisell has helped obtained numerous other awards well in excess of $1 million along with many other six-figure awards.

After graduating from Baruch College in 1990 with a Bachelor of Applied Science in psychology, Mr. Wisell attended Touro College Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center, where he obtained his Juris Doctor in 1995. The New York State Bar Association admitted him to practice the following year, and he is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York.

Fluent in Spanish, Mr. Wisell has conducted speeches for the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and he has appeared on CNN Español, where he provided in-depth legal commentary on a variety of topics. He has also earned a reputation as a tireless and passionate advocate for his Hispanic clients throughout the Jackson Heights and Queens communities.
