Significant Personal Injury Cases Including Medical Malpractice and Wrongful Death in The States of New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania.
In addition to handling numerous personal injury, medical malpractice cases in New Jersey and New York earlier in his career, Mr. Alster has developed close working relationships with the top personal injury law firms and individual attorneys, specializing in all types of personal injury cases, including but not limited to medical malpractice, wrongful death, products liability, and slip and fall cases in the states of New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania. As such, while Mr. Alster no longer prosecutes individual significant personal injury actions alone, Mr. Alster has been acting as co-counsel in a number of significant personal injury lawsuits with anyone of a number of several top personal injury firms/attorneys in New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania for many years. Choosing the correct lawyer and law firm to act as co-counsel and lead counsel assures the injured client of receiving the best possible results, which can differ depending on whether the correct lawyer/lawyers have been chosen; I have seen actual and projected recoveries vary from a $5000 to a $50,000 recovery, a $50,000 to a $500,000 recovery or in some cases from no recovery to $1 million recovery or greater.
Whether handling a personal injury case by himself or choosing the correct lead counsel/law firm to prosecute the case, the injured client receives the best possible results and service while paying the same percentage of the total amount recovered; that is the client’s personal injury legal fees are always based on a percentage of the total amount received through a settlement and/or jury verdict in the client's favor and are never greater than they would be as result of Mr. Alster's choosing lead counsel to prosecute the client claims with.
Chapter 11 Business and Individual Cases Beyond the Chapter 13 Debt Limits.
Mr. Alster assumes responsibilities and handles all New Jersey and New York individual Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 cases on his own, Mr. Alster also works with top Chapter 11 bankruptcy attorneys in New York and New Jersey on both business cases and high debt individual cases which cannot qualify for Chapter 13 protection.
