Attorney Profile

The founder of Merson Law, PLLC, Jordan Merson has developed a reputation as one of the top litigators for his clients in New York and the United States. He has litigated some of the biggest cases across New York State and the Country in the fields of sexual assault, personal injury, medical malpractice and products liability.  Large, highly publicized cases that Mr. Merson has litigated include the Jeffrey Epstein cases (his $650 million Estate setting up a victims compensation fund), the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse cases and the Larry Nassar cases vs Michigan State University with an initial settlement of $500 million, as well as a $200 million medical malpractice case against the United States government, a $200 million personal injury lawsuit against the City of New York.  In 2018, he secured a $28 million sexual assault verdict, which we believe is the largest of its kind in New York State history.  

Mr. Merson has extensive experience litigating cases valued in excess of $1 million and many of the cases that he was worked on have settled for more than $10 million.  When insurance companies have refused to settle, Mr. Merson has taken these cases to trial and helped his clients sercure recoveries in excess of $1 million.  Mr. Merson has received numerous awards and accolades for his hard work and accomplishments, including being selected to New York Law Journal's Hall of Fame for medical malpractice verdicts.  Less than twenty lawyers in all of New York State were given this honor.  Mr. Merson has also been included in the National Trial Lawyers, Top 100 Trial Lawyers, ALM's top verdicts and settlements and the top verdicts in New York State published by New York Magazine. Highly regarded by his fellow professionals, Mr. Merson has received the top possible rating of "Superb" in the legal specialties of personal injury, medical malpractice, birth injury, brain injury and labor and employment through Avvo.

Mr. Merson completed his undergraduate education at Boston University, graduating magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in communications in 2002. He then attended Fordham University School of Law and was awarded his Juris Doctor in 2005. Admitted to practice in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, Mr. Merson was a partner at a New York City civil litigation firm before founding Merson Law, PLLC.
