About Us
Richard A. Fogel has an extensive science background with a Master's Degree in Marine Environmental Sciences and 30 years practice in Toxic Tort, Insurance Coverage, Product Liability, Commercial and Environmental Litigation. As a former scientist, he has a unique ability to work with experts on technical issues and communicate complex causation and scientific explanations to courts and juries. His practice is ninety percent repeat business because his focus is on getting the matter resolved on a cost effective basis that serves the client's best interests. This is not a volume practice unlike many insurance defense firms. Rather, it is designed for personal service for technical cases without incurring the premium price demanded by larger firms. The office is in Suffolk County, Long Island but the firm appears in all courts located in the greater New York area and northern New Jersey. Consider referring one of your toughest cases to the Law Offices of Richard A. Fogel, P.C. and let Rich show you how personal service and unique experience can help you resolve problems cost effectively.
