Cliff Nelson at Law Office of Michael Joseph handled two cases for me with very successful results. His deep knowledge of the law, along with his caring, thoughtful personality made the process as painless as possible. Clif always responded in a timely manner to my calls or emails and is very patient and thoughtful in explaining the complexities of the law in laymen's terms. Both of my cases were very difficult and he was able to accomplish things that I didn't expect. I highly recommend Clif - he is an all around great guy!

I can't thank Michael enough! He asked excellent questions to reveal the lies from the plaintiff and their fraudulent witnesses. He exposed most of the illegal activities the plaintiff is still involved in and the abuse and negligence with all of her homes and their/her own family. He proved my innocence, and showed the public that what happens in the dark will soon come to light. Time to heal and move forward with my life.  Thanks Michael!

Why Do I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?

In this video, Michael H. Joseph answers the frequently asked question, "Do I need a personal injury lawyer?" The law is complex. Having a lawyer can keep you from being taken advantage of by a third party that caused you to suffer losses.

Featured Practice Area: Personal Injury

An unexpected injury can have a devastating impact on you and your family. We have a great understanding of personal injury law and have vigorously represented people who have been hurt by the carelessness or wrongdoing of others.

Our personal injury lawyers offer personalized service to New York residents and their families who were harmed or killed as a result of a car accident, defective product, or any other action caused by the negligent or reckless actions of an individual or group. When we file your personal injury claim, we will seek full compensation from all possible sources, whether that be an insurance company, large business, or another party.

Types of Cases We Represent


Business and Commercial Litigation

Our NYC business and commercial litigation attorneys have decades of experience representing businesses, investors, trust beneficiaries, and other people with business and commercial issues that need to be litigated. Whether your business is being sued or you were cheated out of money, we can help recover the money you lost.

Our attorneys know that most people in this position can't pay hourly fees to an attorney, so we take some cases on contingency meaning you have no out-of-pocket costs. Our philosophy is that the inability to pay upfront should not prevent you from recovering money.  


Criminal Defense

Our lawyers also handle criminal defense cases, and we have won numerous stunning dismissals and not guilty charges on behalf of the falsely accused. With our extensive trial work in personal injury, police misconduct, medical malpractice, and product liability, our lawyers have a well-rounded background that can be essential in winning a criminal case and getting a not guilty verdict. Our diverse background gives us the ability to challenge scientific and medical evidence because our trial attorneys have a thorough understanding of medicine, forensics, engineering, and video evidence.

USA Passport

Immigration and Deportation Defense

Whether you are presently in the country and are interested in applying for residency or citizenship, or are a citizen who wants to sponsor a family member or fiancé, our immigration lawyers have extensive experience in preparing immigration petitions. If you or a loved one are facing deportation, our lawyers have successfully defended countless deportation cases.
