Jacob Oresky, the founding member of Oresky & Associates, pllc, is a seasoned personal injury attorney based in New York City. His practice is dedicated to representing individuals who have suffered injuries in various types of accidents, including construction mishaps, scaffolding incidents, ladder accidents, workplace injuries, car collisions, pedestrian incidents, slips, falls, and wrongful death cases. Over the course of his career, he has successfully represented more than 1,000 clients.

Under Mr. Oresky’s leadership, his firm has achieved remarkable results, securing verdicts and settlements exceeding $300 million for their injured clients. What sets Mr. Oresky apart is his commitment to direct and transparent communication with his clients. He personally meets with them to devise effective legal strategies and spares no expense in building robust cases.

While Mr. Oresky aims to negotiate favorable out-of-court settlements whenever feasible, he ensures his readiness to present a compelling case in court if necessary. Since venturing into private practice in 1992, he and his firm have consistently delivered some of the largest verdicts and settlements in New York State. Notably, Oresky & Associates, pllc, has been featured in the New York Law Journal’s list of Top Settlements for New York every year from 2010 to 2017.

Mr. Oresky takes great pride in his firm’s track record of successfully representing accident victims, securing multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements. Some notable examples include an $18 million verdict for a carpenter injured in a scaffold fall, a $7.5 million settlement for a workplace fall, and a $5 million settlement for a pedestrian accident, among numerous other multimillion-dollar resolutions.

Admitted to the New York State Bar in 1987, Mr. Oresky initially worked at a multidisciplinary law firm in Westchester County following his graduation from Pace University School of Law. Within a year, he assumed control of the firm’s civil practice and later transitioned to a larger law firm, narrowing his focus to personal injury law. In 1992, he established his firm’s personal injury practice.

In addition to his New York State law license, Mr. Oresky is licensed to practice before the U.S. District Courts for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York. He is an active member of the New York State Bar Association, the Bronx County Bar Association, and the New York State Trial Lawyers Association.
