Mitchell J. Birzon is the founding partner of The Birzon Law Group. Mr. Birzon is a graduate of Georgetown University and the New England School of Law. After serving as an attorney in the United States House of Representatives and as senior federal legal Counsel to Governor Mario M. Cuomo (New York) in Washington, D.C., he returned to his native New York for the purposes of creating a private practice. Mr. Birzon specializes in corporate, commercial, healthcare and transactional law including mergers and acquisitions and private equity financing opportunities for upstart and existing business enterprises and healthcare practices and facilities. Historically, Mr. Birzon has served as a Board of Director of the Gurwin Geriatric Center, Long Island Adolescent and Family League Services, Syosset Senior Daycare Center, and is on the Board of Directors for Parent’s for Megan’s Law, a not-for-profit corporation located in Suffolk County.

Lawyer.com Member Questionnaire

Please describe a case(s) in the last year or two where you made a big difference.
Recently our client was badly injured in a car accident. The other driver who caused the accident was only insured for minimal coverage. Our investigation resulted in learning that he had substantial assets and income. We obtained a court order prohibiting the destruction of his vehicle-a BMW with 400hp since we knew that there was a speed recording device in the vehicle that recorded his speed at impact(which we believed to be approximately 55 in a 25 mph zone!). We demanded payment from him in excess of his insurance coverage. Thankfully for our client, a genuinely decent guy, we were able to get substantial money from his personal assets.

How did you build a successful practice?
The secret to building a successful law practice begins with listening g to the needs of your clients. Hard work, passion, honesty, and genuinely caring about your client's welfare are our guiding lights. We want to really get to know our clients- to understand the dynamics of building a lasting and positive long term relationship.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?
Clients should look for a proven record of success in a lawyer. Attorneys who receive recognition from "Superlawyers", Martindale Hubbell, and AVVO provide a good basis to gauge success. Client testimonials are also a valued measure of an attorney's skills and track record.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?
Telephone consultations can be invaluable. In vehicle accident cases we instruct a potential client what to do to make certain that their "No Fault" insurance coverage is properly preserved, we can arrange for a field investigator to interview witnesses, photograph the accident scene and the vehicles involved ( before they are destroyed). We also work with our clients to advise them what to do/ what not to do after an accident. Most don't know that it is legal for the other guy's insurance company to call you and record your conversation without telling you! Another great advantage of a phone call is to advise a potential client about crucial time limitations to commence their claim.

What differentiates you from other lawyers in your community?
Our attorneys are heavily involved in our communities. We serve on boards of Long Island corporations, work with union members( ie. CSEA),volunteer with organizations such as Multiple Sclerosis, "One in Nine", give lectures, coach sports, write articles for local publication, and provide Pro Bono services to our neighbors in need. In addition to offering a free phone consultation( which most lawyers do), I am glad to send any potential client a free copy if my book"Our Best Guide to Handling Your Personal Injury or Medical Malpractice Case", which I wrote in 2013. It's available for purchase on Amazon, but it's free if you just ask me for a copy.
