Howard Raphaelson

Howard A. Raphaelson founded what is now known as Raphaelson & Levine Law Firm, P.C. in 1992 after graduating from the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, determined to ensure that every personal injury victim and their family are treated with excellent personal service, respect, dignity and every resource available in the legal industry.

Mr. Raphaelson has always understood how accidents affect victims and brings that empathy to the courtroom and settlement table every day. His approach — making defendants and insurance companies treat victims as people and not a file — is one of the main reasons why Raphaelson & Levine Law Firm can recover verdicts and settlements often over industry standards.

Three months after graduation Mr. Raphaelson left his position at a distinguished New York City personal injury law firm to open his practice, evidence of the courage and leadership that has helped Raphaelson &Levine becomes a pillar of the legal community in New York.

Through twenty-five years of tireless hard work, an unbreakable entrepreneurial spirit, and the perfection of his craft, his firm has earned a proud reputation as a plaintiff's personal injury powerhouse in New York City, notably for their advocacy as "the voice of the injured." Building a personal relationship with each client and understanding their unique needs has enabled the firm to help victims recover hundreds of millions of dollars in compensation.
