Attorney Profile

Talented trial lawyer Jeffrey A. Block founded the New York, New York, personal injury firm now known as Block O'Toole & Murphy in 1989 after graduating from Brooklyn Law School. His practice is focused on all types of personal injury cases, including construction accidents, car and tractor-trailer accidents and medical malpractice. His diligence and focused preparation have yielded a substantial number of superb results on a number of cases abandoned by other lawyers, such as an appellate court case involving a non-surgical herniated disk, for which Mr. Block secured a $4.1 million jury verdict on behalf of his client.

Mr. Block has developed a considerable presence locally and nationally as a skilled trial lawyer as well as a negotiator. Many of his clients are referred to him by judges and other attorneys who respect his acumen in the courtroom and commitment to his clients. Over the course of his 24-year career, Mr. Block has amassed over 70 verdicts and settlements each worth over $1 million.

Mr. Block's greatest satisfaction comes from helping those who most need assistance. He treasures cases like a recent one in Nassau County in which he was able to obtain $14 million for a motorcyclist who suffered a below-the-knee amputation after an accident; it has been reported as the highest verdict of its kind in the county. Another satisfying outcome was a $12 million settlement Mr. Block obtained from an insurance company on behalf of a young boy. His successes have not gone unnoticed; The National Trial Lawyers organization has ranked him among the 100 best trial lawyers in the state.
