Wayne Rabinowitz – Trial Counsel
Wayne Rabinowitz is an experienced litigator, who has defended personal injury lawsuits in the New York City metropolitan area since being admitted to the bar. 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 becoming trial counsel at Fullerton Beck.
Wayne has extensive experience in managing defense litigation, including everything from pre-lawsuit investigations, joinders of issue, discovery, depositions, motion practice, trials, and appeals. He picked his first verdict only 3 weeks after being admitted, and since that time he has taken numerous verdicts and has zealously represented clients both in and out of the courtroom since. Wayne has achieved favorable results prior to trial, during trial, by verdict, and post-verdict. His experience encompasses medical 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, and systemic illnesses.
Wayne is admitted to practice and has taken verdicts in the New York federal courts – the U.S. District Court in the Eastern, Southern and Northern Districts.
