Attorney Profile

As co-founder of Edelman & Edelman, P.C., Martin Edelman devotes his practice to helping victims of negligence who have suffered events such as construction accidents, catastrophic personal injury or wrongful convictions. Serving people in New York City and the surrounding area, Martin is known for his extensive medical knowledge and his ability to uncover compensable injuries in cases where every other lawyer insisted there was no claim.

Today, Mr. Edelman uses his decades of experience to hold irresponsible parties accountable for the damages they have caused. Whether litigating in the courtroom over a medical malpractice case or talking through negotiations in a product liability dispute, he remains focused on ensuring that clients feel they have a steadfast advocate in their corner. Every decision Mr. Edelman makes centers on how it will help build a stronger case. He brings together expert witnesses and recreates a scene to help illustrate why a defendant is indebted to the injured.
