Gash & Associates, P.C.

Gash & Associates, P.C., is a full service litigation firm, established in 1989, which maintains offices in White Plains, New York, in Edison, New Jersey and in Greenwich, Connecticut. We provide exceptional legal representation in all areas of litigation, including personal injury, matrimonial, family law, civil rights, commercial, employment and criminal matters.

We love what we do. We are passionate about our clients, which gets us up earlier and to bed late, since we are constantly working to add value to our clients’ matters. Some have referred to us as the “lawyer’s lawyer.” Indeed, many of our clients are lawyers and many lawyers refer their clients to us because of their confidence in us. We value such referrals, because it is a reaffirmation from our colleagues of the quality of our work.

In the personal injury field, it is not uncommon for well known and highly regarded physicians to suggest to their patients, who are seeking legal representation, to consider our firm, because those doctors know first hand of our reputation and of how hard we fight for our clients.

This passion manifests itself in the dedication we bring to our clients and to their cases. Gash & Associates is associated with some of the most distinguished attorneys in the tri-state area, whom you will see listed on our “The Firm” page, to which we invite you to navigate. These associations contribute to our verdicts and settlements, with outcomes which well exceed the values for similar cases in the same venue. As one of our colleagues commented: “Gash & Associates have the unique ability of making a good case great-that is their incredible talent.” Some of our verdicts and settlements, which you will find listed on the “Verdicts” page of this site, bear eloquent witness to our accomplishments, and we encourage you to review them.

Our goal is to provide the highest level of legal representation to every one of our clients. Because we work so tirelessly with our clients in designing the best possible outcome for their case, we tend to view our clients as part of our extended family, and care about their matters as we would for someone close and dear to us. The client has chosen us to champion his or her case; we value and treasure that trust. The client is not a file, nor a case number, but a real person or family, who cry out for us to help make him, her or them whole. We treasure that entrustment. That‘s the “Personal” part of our personal injury practice.

What sets us apart from other firms is that we do not simply process a large volume of cases. Those types of firms are more content to settle cases and move them, rather than to consider what is right for the client. We reject that philosophy and this rejection is reflected in our approach to our cases. Instead, we intentionally limit the number of cases so that each of our clients receives the proper attention that he or she deserves. This permits us to aggressively pursue your case from beginning to end. Opposing law firms, insurance companies, and municipalities, including the Cities of New York and Yonkers as well as the United States Government, know us to be hardworking and aggressive adversaries, as we have a well-deserved reputation for zealously fighting for our clients’ rights. This often results in cases settling quickly. However, if a settlement offer is not reasonable, we have no hesitation to take your case to trial.
