Wayne Rabinowitz – Trial Counsel
Wayne Rabinowitz is an experienced trial attorney, having resolved hundreds of jury and bench trials to verdict or settlement. He is an accomplished litigator who has defended personal injury lawsuits throughout the New York City metropolitan area and the surrounding counties of Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester and Rockland, as well as in New York federal courts – the US District Court for the Eastern, Southern and Northern Districts of New York.
He was first employed as in-house counsel of a major liability insurer, where he handled all aspects of defense litigation. Thereafter, Wayne worked for one of the largest insurance defense law firms in the country for more than 38 years, rising from associate to senior partner, before joining Fullerton Beck.
Wayne has extensive experience managing defense litigation, everything from pre-lawsuit investigations, joinders of issues, discovery, depositions, motion practice, trials, and appeals. He selected his first jury only three weeks after being admitted, and since that time, he has taken numerous verdicts and has zealously represented clients in and out of the courtroom. Wayne has achieved favorable results prior to trial, during trial, by verdict, and post-verdict. His experience encompasses medical and psychiatric malpractice, premises liability, construction-site accidents, municipal liability, motor vehicle accidents, employment claims, and other areas involving allegations of negligence or intentional conduct.
Throughout Wayne’s career, much of his practice has been focused on medical malpractice litigation, representing hospitals, physicians, nurses, and other healthcare professionals and facilities, providing him with an acute understanding of the anatomy and physiology of injuries alleged in personal injury litigation. This experience has contributed to Wayne’s success in defending actions with claimed injuries, including death, asphyxiation, brain injury, myocardial infarction, amputation, spine and spinal cord injuries, obstetrical and gynecological injuries, urinary tract injuries, injuries to organs, bone fractures, shoulder, hip and knee injuries, psychiatric injuries including suicide, and systemic illnesses.
