Meet Attorney Jesse M. Minc

Biography

Jesse Minc has dedicated his law practice to advocating for injured New Yorkers for many years, and has been recognized by members of the bench and bar for his top-notch legal skills and track record of outstanding 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 the injured person to be nearly impossible. 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 consistently 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 member of the “America’s Top 100 Personal Injury Lawyers” list, and 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. His honors have been noted in New York Times publications, where Jesse Minc was noted as 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. He has been a member of the New York State Trial Lawyers Association, participating in its Labor Law committee; the New York State Bar Association; the Bronx County Bar Association; and the New York City Bar Association.

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). He obtained his Juris Doctor (Law Degree) from Vanderbilt University Law School (one of the top-20 law schools in the nation), and his Bachelors’ Degree in Political Science and Spanish from Washington University in St. Louis (one of the top 15 universities in the nation), graduating with honors. He is admitted to practice before the courts of the State of New York, as well as before the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York (Federal Courts), and has successfully represented clients before the trial courts and appellate courts throughout New York.

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 tens of 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 who died after her 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; $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 union 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; and many other favorable verdicts and settlements

I can't recommend Jesse enough. He made a difficult process so seamless. He was extremely caring, knowledgeable, diligent and forthcoming throughout this journey for me. I will be recommending him to all my friends and family if they are ever in need

You never imagine that you'll need to find a personal injury attorney – there are so many options out there and the process can be overwhelming. Jesse was the obvious choice for me as he approaches every situation with empathy, optimism, and reassurance. His clear communication style made me feel knowledge about the process and his perseverance resulted in a successful case. I can't recommend Jesse enough and while I hope I'll never need his services again, he's the only person I'll recommend to friends and family.

When you are in financial distress and physical pain it is difficult to think clearly and make good decisions . That, in addition to not understanding a legal process complicates matters even more. Jesse Minc explained the law, outlined in clear language the steps in the process that where needed to be done. He was reassuring, articulate, knowable and effective. Jesse made the process so much easier and gave me peace of mind in a stressful time. Jesse Minc and his firm tried my case to a verdict and negotiated a successful settlement for me and my wife. He is “The best of the best.” I am grateful to him and his father Dan for all they did.

When I got hurt after falling on a scaffold on a construction site, I could not work in construction anymore and did not know how I could support my family. I turned to Jesse Minc and I am very happy that I met him. He has helped me to be able to support my family even though I can no longer work construction, which I had done for thirty years before my accident. He also discusses my case in Spanish with me when I want to, and that always made me feel comfortable. I believe that he is the best lawyer in New York City and I would recommend him to anybody who is injured.

After I was very badly hurt in a construction accident and could not work anymore, I turned to Jesse Minc. I have had a lot of lawyers over the years, but he is the best I ever had. Unlike other lawyers who have represented me in the past, he gave me his cell phone number and always makes sure that I always understand what is going on in my case. Because I was a member of Local 6A Concrete Workers Union, I lost a lot of benefits, my pension and income when I got hurt and he made sure I understood how I could recover what I had lost. I consider him a friend, as well as my lawyer, because he cares about what happens to me. He and his team have been a Godsend to me and my family, and I am so glad that I chose him to represent us.

My experience with Jesse Minc's firm was very rewarding. I personally dealt with Jesse Minc, who was a class act as my lawyer. He was always on call with any questions or help I needed in the process of my lawsuit. Which was a complete difference for prior lawyers I've dealt with in the past who were hard to contact and mostly had their employees do much of the responding. Jesse recovered a high six figure sum for a slip and fall accident I endured. A ruptured achilles heel that required three surgeries. He got the case settled in a reasonable time. If you are in need of lawyers for a lawsuit in New York City I highly recommend Jesse Minc's firm, they got me a very high settlement and were there for me personally every step of the way. Thanks to all the lawyers and staff.

When I got hurt on a construction site and could not work anymore, one of my brothers from the Concrete Workers Local 6A union recommended Jesse Minc to be my lawyer and I am very happy I picked him to represent me. He really does have the human touch that a lot of lawyers lack. He always is available to answer my questions and has given me the confidence to know that I will recover what I have lost because of my injuries. He really knows the law and takes the time to explain it to me. He also makes sure that I am progressing with my medical treatment and helps me understand what the doctors are saying when I get recommendations for treatment. I would recommend Jesse Minc to anyone injured in a construction accident because he will fight to the end of the earth for his clients.

What a blessing for this country girl getting hurt in the big city of New York, to find not just a lawyer, but a most caring, professional and resolute St. George to slay my dragon!
