Over the years, Roy Scaffidi has been repeatedly recognized by his peers as one of the pre-eminent trial attorneys in New York. He has an AV rating from Martindale-Hubbell in both skill and ethics, which is the highest such rating available to any individual lawyer, and he has been named in “The Best Lawyers in America”, “New York Area’s Best Lawyers”, and the nationally recognized “Super Lawyers” publications. He is also a member of the exclusive invitation-only American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA) and the Litigation Counsel of America. Roy’s outstanding credentials and glowing reputation are well-earned. He has obtained more than half a billion dollars for his clients over the course of his career. Because he is one of the top trial attorneys in New York, clients clamor for his services. Roy has litigated cases throughout the tri-state area, securing verdicts and protecting his clients in New York, Connecticut, and New Jersey.

A graduate of both Fordham University and Fordham Law School, Roy Scaffidi began his legal career representing corporations, physicians, hospitals, and their insurance companies. Though he was quite successful, he was not satisfied. He realized that his passion and talents could be better utilized by serving the unfortunate victims of acts of negligence and malpractice who, through no fault of their own, have had their lives made substantially more challenging.

Today, he does just that. He uses an unparalleled knowledge of medicine, thorough investigation and preparation, and the unique insight he has into the strategies and techniques relied upon by the defense bar, to craft strong arguments that advance his clients’ interests in the courtroom and at the negotiating table. While Mr. Scaffidi’s results speak for themselves, he is perhaps most humbled by and proud of the countless referrals he has received from defense attorneys and former clients.
