Stuart L. Finz is the senior trial attorney and CEO of Finz & Finz, P.C. He has earned success with his unique negotiation and courtroom skills, scoring record multi-million-dollar verdicts and complicated multi-million-dollar case settlements for his clients.

Mr. Finz oversees all aspects of the firm’s litigation practice, including General Tort Liability, Medical Malpractice, Products Liability, Defective Drugs, Toxic Exposure, and Appellate Law.

“Maximizing the financial outcome for our clients, and the attorneys who place their trust in our firm is our fundamental creed, which has continued to flourish as we surpass three decades of our founding. It is a creed that, as in the past, will continue to be followed in the years to come. We can do no more for our clients, and certainly, we owe them no less.” ─ Stuart L. Finz

Mr. Finz has been named by New York Super Lawyers as a top personal injury trial attorney for the years 2007-2020. He has been selected as a lifetime member of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, is listed in the New York Law Journal report of Largest Verdicts, and was nominated by the leaders of the Democratic Party to run for the United States Congress in the 3rd Congressional District.

In addition, Mr. Finz was appointed to the New York State Plaintiffs DES Liaison Committee, where he fought for women against the manufacturers of DES, a drug that caused cancer in the offspring of women who were exposed in-utero. He co-authored Problems of a DES-Exposed Woman in Her Childbearing Years ─ Legal Implications and has been actively involved in legal issues that affect the health and safety of the public, always seeking to advance the rights of individuals.

Mr. Finz was born in Queens, New York, and is admitted to practice law in New York State and its federal courts, including the Northern District, Southern District, and Eastern District. He is a member of the New York State Trial Lawyers Association, the Association of Trial Lawyers of America, the American Bar Association, and the Queens County and Nassau County Bar Associations. He is Vice-Chair of the Queens County Medical Malpractice Committee and has lectured for the New York County Lawyers Association.

Mr. Finz attended Long Island University, where he graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts. He obtained a Juris Doctor from Thomas Jefferson School of Law, where he was elected President of the law school student body and listed in “Who’s Who in American Colleges and Universities.”

With the ideology of “protecting victims’ rights,” Mr. Finz has fought hard and achieved record results for personal injury victims for over 30 years. As a staunch advocate for the seriously injured, he is dedicated to promoting public health and safety through the courts. To accomplish that continuing objective, Mr. Finz is proud to have assembled at Finz & Finz, P.C., a high-level team of extraordinarily bright, passionate, and aggressive attorneys, paralegals, nurses, and support staff.

When Mr. Finz is not litigating on behalf of his clients, he enjoys boating, jet skiing, motorcycles, and exotic sportscars. His fondest moments, however, are derived from spending time with his wife, children, and granddaughter.
What should clients look for in a lawyer?

Clients should look for a lawyer who can provide skilled and strategic advocacy, a commitment to building trust, and a reputation you can rely on. A good lawyer will aggressively represent his clients to the fullest extent of the law in their pursuit of justice and maximum compensation.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?

I will gather information from you and provide an initial roadmap for your case. However, every case will require in-depth investigation, which is required in order to develop a case-specific legal strategy that will give you the best opportunity to maximize the final outcome.

What information do you need in a free phone consultation?

The initial phone conversation will consist primarily of information gathering. It will be important for you to provide the names of those who have been injured, when the incident occurred, and an overview of what happened. Additional information that will be helpful when conducting a preliminary investigation of your case include photographs, medical records, incident or police reports, witness contact information, and other documentation.

What differentiates you from other lawyers in your community?

I have been practicing exclusively personal injury, medical malpractice and defective products litigation for more than 35 years. During that time, I have obtained some of the highest recorded verdicts and settlements in the history of New York State, including a $24.5 million settlement on behalf of a child who suffered a spinal cord injury in a truck accident, a $20.5 million verdict against Philip Morris and American Tobacco, a $14.7 million verdict in favor of a New York City building porter who suffered an arm injury at work, and more.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?

I have dedicated my career to helping innocent victims obtain the fullest measure of justice. There is nothing more satisfying than delivering a settlement check to my clients. In many cases, the settlement check is life-changing and often helps my clients get their life back on track following a devastating injury.

What are your other interests in addition to law?

When I am not litigating on behalf of my clients, I enjoy boating, jet skiing, motorcycles and exotic sportscars. My fondest moments, however, are derived from spending time with my wife, children and granddaughter.

Are you involved in your community?

Yes. I was born and raised in Queens, New York, and I have dedicated my career to giving back to the local community. I have been recognized by the New York State Assembly for "Exemplary Service to the Community" and by the New York City Council for "Outstanding Service and Contributions" to the community. In addition, I have been a member of the New York State Trial Lawyers Association, Association of Trial Lawyers of America, American Bar Association, Queens County Bar Association, Nassau County Bar Association, Vice Chair of the Queens County Medical Malpractice Committee, and the New York County Lawyers Association.
