Attorney Profile

Sharon A. Scanlan is an attorney with the Jacoby & Meyers, LLP, law firm, which has offices located throughout New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. Serving clients throughout southeastern New York and the surrounding areas of Connecticut, Ms. Scanlan devotes her practice exclusively to personal injury law and helping her clients obtain the maximum amount of compensation for their injuries and losses caused by someone else's negligence or wrongdoing.

A top-rated trial lawyer with more than 30 years of legal experience, Ms. Scanlan has achieved unprecedented success advocating for those in need. Throughout the course of her career, she has secured numerous six- and seven-figure settlements and awards for victims of motor vehicle and pedestrian accidents, particularly accidents caused by drunk drivers, as well as for individuals and families adversely affected by construction defects, defective products and other senseless and avoidable tragedies.

From this success, Ms. Scanlan has received many positive reviews and referrals from satisfied clients, and she has established her reputation as one of the area's leading legal advocates.

A 1983 cum laude graduate of The College of New Rochelle, Ms. Scanlan attended Pace University School of Law, where she obtained her Juris Doctor in 1988. Both the New York State Bar Association and the Connecticut Bar Association admitted her to practice that same year, and she is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Courts for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York, as well as before the U.S. Supreme Court.

Along with maintaining an active membership with the New York State Bar Association, Ms. Scanlan is a member of several other professional legal organizations, including the New York State Trial Lawyers Association, the Bronx County Bar Association, the Westchester County Bar Association and the Westchester Women's Bar Association, among others.
