Biography
 

Edward A. Steinberg, Esq. has represented and assisted victims of significant personal injury and medical malpractice cases for the past twenty years. At Leav & Steinberg, LLP he has advocated for hundreds of clients and their families in their time of need, obtai

ning millions of dollars on their behalf. Countless successful results involved helping victims of negligence even after other attorneys in New York rejected the cases. After being admitted to the bar and practicing for some time at that firm, Mr. Steinberg met Mr. Leav and they formed what has grown to be one of the most aggressive, successful firms practicing negligence litigation in New York.

 

 

One of Mr. Steinberg's noteworthy achievements involved a woman who was gravely injured but the responsible party refused to compensate her for her injuries. The client ultimately recovered more money than was available in the defendant's insurance policy, making Mr. Steinberg one of the only attorneys in New York City to do so. He is one of the youngest members to serve on the Board of Directors of the New York State Trial Lawyers Association, the New York State Bar Association and the American Trial Lawyers Association. He has been counsel to the Brain Injury Society, a non-profit organization which helps those who suffer from traumatic brain injuries.
