Pro bono/Community Service:

  • During the last 20 years since I won the first lawsuit in the United States (Grano, et al v. The Long Island Railroad) where someone claimed they were negligently caused to contract Lyme disease, I have voluntarily assisted over one thousand chronically ill Lyme disease patients (including members of the armed forces) to: locate medical experts; obtain medical treatment; and, collect health and disability insurance benefits.

Scholarly Lectures and Writings:

  • I maintain a blog on behalf of The Maurer Law Firm, PLLC which is designed to educate the general public and keep the legal profession up-to-date on state and federal court decisions relevant to personal injury litigation.  The blog also contains detailed medical information regarding most areas of the body that tend to be the subject of personal injury claims., Author, 2013

Verdicts and Settlements:

  • I represented two former commercial drivers who were employed by Penske Logistics.  The drivers were seriously injured in two seperate accidents when a front steer wheel assembly fell off their trucks while operating at highway speeds.  The lawsuits were commenced in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of New York in Albany against several defendants, including the parent company of Penske Logistics which is a wholly-owned subsidiary. The claims were pursued together for purposes of pre-trial discovery.  Before the claims were resolved, I successfully defeated Penske's motions for summary judgment that were based upon a workers' compensation law defense., 2012

Representative Clients:

  • Duriing the last few years, I represented several different Metro-North Railroad employees regarding repetitive stress orthopedic and neurologic injuries that were sustained in the course of their employement as a conductor, carpenter and Rail Traffic Controller.  The railroad moved to have some of the pending federal court cases dismissed before trial and I successfully opposed the motions, leading to resolution of the claims.  , 2014
