Practice Areas: Insurance Coverage

Jonathan J. Wilkofsky, the esteemed founder and managing partner of Wilkofsky Friedman Karel & Cummins, a renowned law firm based in New York, specializes in advocating for individuals affected by various calamities such as fires, floods, hurricanes, thefts, building collapses, and other crises through first-party insurance litigation and third-party property damage claims in the states of New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. Moreover, he also serves as legal counsel in matters encompassing:

  • Labor law
  • Medical malpractice
  • Toxic tort
  • Legal malpractice
  • Civil rights issues

Mr. Wilkofsky commenced his legal career in 1982 upon completing his law degree from New York Law School. Throughout his professional journey, he has remained dedicated to safeguarding consumer rights. Notably, his advocacy for ongoing education for insurance adjusters led to a pivotal change in New York law in 1998. He authored legislation, subsequently signed into law by Governor Pataki in 2001, aimed at enhancing transparency in New York property insurance policies.

In 2004, he received an award for his publication, “The Law and Procedure of Insurance Appraisal.” Beyond his writing accolades, he is highly regarded as a speaker and has delivered lectures at various New York State Bar Association events. His wealth of experience and expertise has earned him leadership roles, including the positions of general counsel and executive director for the New York and New Jersey Public Adjusters Associations.

While Mr. Wilkofsky’s achievements outside the courtroom are commendable, they are eclipsed by his remarkable track record within the courtroom, where he has never experienced a loss in a jury trial. Notably, he served as lead counsel in a case before the New York Supreme Court that resulted in one of the largest verdicts in the state’s history in a property damage case. Additionally, he provided legal representation to victims of both the “Monrovia Fires” and the “Hellgate” catastrophes.
