We Value Our Quality Reputation and Our Client Relationships

Okun, Oddo & Babat specializes in the representation of victims who have suffered serious personal injuries. We represent accident victims in all areas of personal injury arising out of automobile accidents, medical malpractice, hospital negligence, defective products and drugs, premises liability, construction site accidents and wrongful death. We handle civil litigation and trials in both the State and Federal Courts. We also offer high quality representation in all types of criminal and commercial matters.

Formerly Newman & Okun, PC, the firm changed its name in January 2010 to better reflect the leadership positions held within the firm. “Our staff has not changed, nor has our commitment to provide our clients with the same quality legal representation as we have for almost 30 years,” explains partner, Eric Babat, noting that Mr. Newman retired over 20 years ago. “As the three of us have been partners for over 10 years, and our clients have associated our names with the firm for many years, we felt that it was appropriate to make the change.”

Our midtown office is equipped with a customized case management computer program, which provides immediate access to information about client files. We also have the capability of performing on-line legal research and computer access to State and Federal Court calendars as well as DMV and NYS Department of Corporation records.

With seven attorneys, having more than 100 years combined experience in civil litigation, we strive to provide responsive service to all of our clients and handle their cases with efficiency and professionalism. We are known for our integrity, experience and creativity as well as our history of successful case results. Our multi-lingual staff of para-professionals (English, Spanish, French, Russian and Italian) is available to attend to the needs of our clients.

At Okun, Oddo & Babat, we separate ourselves from other law firms by providing attentive, personal service. Your phone calls and e-mails will get our immediate attention and we will always be available to discuss the status of your case. Most cases are handled on a contingency basis, so clients pay nothing unless there is a recovery in their case.
