Benjamin Pinczewski graduated Summa Cum Laude from SUNY Stonybrook, after which he attended St. John’s School of Law, where he quickly became the youngest Civil Trial competition winner in the school’s history. After graduating in 1985, he worked for Snitow & Pauley in New York City, focusing on complex civil litigation, white collar criminal defense work and real estate transactions.
Mr. Pinczewski opened his own law firm in 1990. Initially, he primarily represented insurance carriers, providing expert defense work in negligence cases, personal injury lawsuits and no fault collection matters. He continued to develop his skills and expertise in representing individuals and entities in complex civil business litigations. He further developed and enhanced his courtroom skills, trying numerous cases to verdict. Most importantly, he gained invaluable insight into insurance carriers’ perspectives on cases, what methods they use to analyze and assess the case value, and the tricks they use to defend a claim.
In 1997, Mr. Pinczewski decided to forgo defense work, instead focusing on Plaintiffs who were injured in motor-vehicle accidents, slip and falls, and workplace accidents. With his vast inside knowledge of how insurance carriers defend and assess claims, as well as his trial experience, he is able to routinely recover excellent awards, verdicts and settlements on behalf of accident victims. He also began representing doctors in regulatory matters while drafting agreements to properly structure their practices and to best protect their interests. Mr. Pinczewski is a zealous advocate on behalf of his clients, as well as the entire community. His passion - as well as his commitment to doing the right thing - resulted in him being featured on an episode of ABC hit show, “What would you do?“. Unscripted and unaware he was being recorded, Mr. Pinczewski fiercely protected and stood up for a couple being discriminated against.
Mr. Pinczewski is married and has a teenage son. He serves on the Board of Ethics in his community and previously served on the Zoning Board. He is a member of the New Jersey Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Advisory Counsel. He is very active in Brooklyn charities, judges the NYC Mock Trial High School competition, and serves as a Judge for Generation Citizen’s Civics Day events. He is licensed to practice law in both New York and New Jersey.
