Attorney Profile

Jesse Minc has dedicated his law practice to advocating for injured New Yorkers since 2013, and has been recognized by members of the bench and bar for his top-notch legal skills and track record of results for his clients.  He is recognized by defense attorneys for his tenacity, and his ability to deliver favorable and substantial results even in very difficult liability cases in which some attorneys might consider a win for a plaintiff to be nearly impossible.  Before embarking on his career in the personal injury and medical malpractice field, Jesse worked as an associate for a Wall Street law firm representing financial institutions and companies in large transactions.  He later served as a law clerk to the Hon. Barbara Kapnick, who currently sits on the New York State Supreme Court’s Appellate Division, First Department (the appeals court that oversees the trial courts in the Bronx and New York County). His meticulous and detail-oriented approach to the preparation of each case, and his ability to persuade judges and juries of the merits of his clients’ cases, has allowed Jesse to excel as a personal injury and medical malpractice attorney and deliver justice and substantial compensation for his clients.  The son of a prominent New York personal injury and medical malpractice trial lawyer, Jesse grew up watching his father on trial and realized early on in his career that personal injury and medical malpractice work was his calling.  Jesse truly has advocacy for injured New Yorkers in his blood.

Mr. Minc’s skills and zealous advocacy are routinely recognized, year after year, by the legal community and he has been selected as a “Super Lawyer” (a distinction reserved for the top 5% of practicing lawyers) by the votes of other attorneys in New York State every year since 2016. This particular honor has been noted in the New York Times Magazine section, where Jesse Minc was published as being among the top young lawyers in the State of New York. His results for injured clients have also been featured on the list of “Top Verdicts and Settlements” published by the New York Law Journal. Jesse’s clients have also lauded his trial advocacy skills, and reviews of his services to his clients, such as the following review from a client, reflect exactly how his clients feel about his abilities and results: “Jesse Minc is very professional and trustworthy. I met few bad lawyers before getting to know him and I wish I have known him before. Jesse went above and beyond to fight for me, and I highly recommend him. As a nurse and a professional in human, I will tell you that Jesse has a strong and one personality, he cares for his clients. If you give him your case, he will make it his. He will communicate with you and keep you updated at all times. His good communication skills add a lot of values to his professionalism, and that makes him the best lawyer in New York. I will always go back to Jesse. Thank you so much because you replace my tears into joy and put back a smile on my lips and face. Jesse is #1.”

Jesse has recovered many millions of dollars on behalf of injured New Yorkers in verdicts and settlements over his  career. Among some of the results that Mr. Minc has helped clients secure, as both first and second chair counsel, include: $7.8 million settlement for a child who suffered anoxic brain damage and spastic quadrapesis due to a surgeon’s failure to recognize a bleed caused by an improperly-performed rectal biopsy; $5.1 million Bronx County jury verdict for a man who was injured in a motorcycle accident with a public bus; $3,000,000.00 settlement for a Bronx County woman who fell down a flight of stairs, suffering neck, knee and shoulder injuries; $1.8 million settlement for a construction worker who was struck in the head with a pipe and suffered neck injuries requiring a cervical fusion and which resulted in his inability to continue his career as a laborer after defending the case on appeal to the Appellate Division, Second Department; $950,000 for a man who suffered lumbar spinal injuries requiring a lumbar fusion surgery in an elevator accident involving an elevator cab falling several stories after defending the case on appeal to the Appellate Division, First Department; $950,000.00 wrongful death settlement for a 64-year old homemaker whose infection was misdiagnosed by a large New York City hospital; $810,000 settlement for a woman whose ear was severely burned and disfigured and who suffered post-traumatic stress disorder and depression as a result of the improper use of surgical equipment during a surgery to remove a benign cholesteatoma from her middle ear; $800,000.00 for a construction workers who suffered lumbar spinal injuries as a result of a falling crate, despite the fact that the worker did not complain of back pain for four weeks after the accident and had minimal lost earnings; $750,000.00 settlement for a Bronx woman who suffered lumbar spinal injuries in a low-impact rear-end collision; $650,000 settlement for a Brooklyn man who tripped and fell on a broken sidewalk and suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon requiring multiple surgeries and years of therapy; $625,000.00 settlement for an Orange County woman who suffered a ureter injury during surgery by a reputable surgeon; $625,000.00 pain and suffering settlement for a Bronx gym patron who slipped and fell on mop water, breaking his wrist; $525,000.00 settlement for a Bronx ironworker who broke his wrist after tripping over debris at a construction site (settled before defense depositions were ever conducted) where the plaintiff returned to work full time five months after the accident and suffered minimal lost earnings and relatively little permanency; $500,000.00 settlement for a Bronx man who suffered lumbar spinal injuries in a low-impact rear-end accident; $450,000.00 settlement for a Manhattan woman who suffered vision loss in one eye due to a botched plastic surgery after defeating summary judgment in the Supreme Court and the Appellate Division; $300,000 for a man who slipped and fell on an icy New York City sidewalk and broke his ankle requiring open reduction surgery; $260,000 for a woman who suffered a torn rotator cuff requiring arthroscopic surgery when the axel of her car fell off due to a negligent repair of the vehicle causing a crash; $180,000 settlement after jury selection for a man who suffered aggravation of a preexisting back injury requiring a discectomy due to a rear-end collision; $120,000 settlement (without ever having to file a lawsuit) for an infant who was burned when hot tea was spilled on her face during an international flight to Paris, France; $100,000 settlement for a woman who fell down a set of exterior steps and suffered a non-displaced fracture of her fifth metatarsal requiring no surgery and only a few months of therapy; $90,000 for a woman who was hit by a car while a pedestrian in a crosswalk and who suffered soft-tissue injuries requiring only physical therapy; $90,000 settlement for a woman who suffered an avulsion injury (sprain) to her ankle when she slipped on a wet floor in a Manhattan office building; $81,210 New York County jury verdict for a woman who suffered a non-displaced fracture of her pinky toe that required no surgery and only a few months of therapy.
