Our growth

Michael Barasch and Jim McGarry graduated from Fordham University School of Law in 1980. For 14 years they worked at separate law firms. Michael worked for two top personal injury firms and tried dozens of cases on behalf of seriously injured victims of automobile accidents, construction accidents, railroad and plane crashes, and medical malpractice. He recovered millions of dollars on behalf of his clients. Jim became a specialist in the New York City Employees' Retirement System. He represented dozens of seriously injured New York City firefighters, both for their personal injuries as well as to protect their pension benefits.

In 1994, we decided to pool our resources and experience as New York accident lawyers. We formed the law firm of Barasch & McGarry, PC. From the beginning, our firm has concentrated our practice on helping permanently injured accident victims. The firm prides itself on helping its clients deal with a great deal of problems that are commonly encountered following a life-changing accident. These areas include dealing with medical bills, mortgage or rent payments, finding competent medical help, and investigating the accident to determine who was responsible. Witnesses must be identified and interviewed so as to preserve their testimony for later use.

As our firm grew, so did our realization of the importance of our two most valuable assets. In 2000, the firm was proud to announce that personal injury attorneys Barry Salzman and Dom Penson had become partners. Barry, who came to us from one of New York City's most prestigious personal injury firms, has managed some of our most important cases. Recently, he has spearheaded the firm's bunker gear case against the City of New York on behalf of hundreds of firefighters. Dom came to us after assisting one of the country's best trial lawyers obtain a $56 million verdict. Dom has tried many major cases to verdict and has argued important cases on behalf of firefighters at both the Appellate Division and the Court of Appeals.

Our NY personal injury law firm has changed its name to reflect the status of our new partners. We are now known as Barasch McGarry Salzman & Penson, PC.

About Client Rating
About Peer Rating

Welcome to Martindale-Hubbell® Client Review, a new ratings service that allows you to view and provide feedback on a lawyer or law firm on service and relationship qualities such as Communication Ability, Responsiveness, Quality of Service, and Value for Money.

Determining a Rating

The Client Review Rating is determined through aggregation of validated responses. This compilation of Client Reviews translates to a numerical rating and associate descriptive term on a scale of 1 -5. 1 being lowest as "Rated" and 5 being highest as "Preeminent".

  • 4.5-5.0 Preeminent
  • 3.0-4.4 Distinguished
  • 1-2.9 Rated

Martindale-Hubbell uses a third-party resource to validate that the respondent is a living person, but cannot confirm the lawyer/client relationship, which in many cases is confidential. Clients must affirm that they are a client of the lawyer or firm identified for review at the time of the completed Client Review.

The Reviewers

Those who complete Client Reviews are clients of law firms who hired a lawyer within the last year, whose matter is not pending, and want to share their experience of that lawyer or law firm with other potential clients. Reviewers can be of any type from in-house counsel, corporate executives, small business owners to private individuals, and even sometimes another lawyer in a different jurisdiction.

Anonymity

Client Reviews are anonymous and reviewers' identities are not published; however a summary of basic demographics will be part of the display of responses.

Why do we collect demographics as part of the review?

Those who are researching a lawyer or law firm like to see that there are other clients who might be "like them". This is valuable information contributing to the decision-making process of hiring a lawyer.

Martindale-Hubbell's role

Martindale-Hubbell facilitates the process of Client Review by gathering responses, validating them and aggregating results for display online. The content of the responses are entirely from reviewers, the clients of the firm or lawyer.

It is important to note that Martindale-Hubbell does not undertake to develop Client Reviews for all firms and lawyers. Therefore, the fact that a firm or lawyer has not been reviewed should not be construed unfavorably. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome and Martindale-Hubbell accepts no responsibility for the content or accuracy of any review over which Martindale-Hubbell exercises no editorial review or control.
