This law firm was recommended to me by a friend to help me with a slip and fall I endured. I found the entire Held, Held & Held staff to be extremely knowledgeable, responsive, and were very up front with me about the strengths and weaknesses of my case.

I went to Held, Held and Held after another law frim dropped me. They were recommended to me by my brother Michael. I was injured in a slip and fall accident. Frist thing you learn about this law firm is that they CARE. From Edward Held to his daughter Jennifer they make you feel like family..


I am a former New York State Judge. My wife was severely injured in an automobile accident. The Held firm took the case when others said, “There’s nothing here.” We settled for a sizeable amount due to the care, hard-work and diligence of all members of this firm.

This office was awesome. The lawyers and staff were so helpful with all my questions and getting me a great settlement. They always got back to me and they actually cared about me and my case. I never usually write a review, but I felt like these guys deserved a positive review for all of their efforts.

Walked in for a consultation regarding a car accident several months ago. I was injured and was unsure what my rights were and what I could do about it. My first impressions were nothing short of amazing! After only a few minutes I met with a lawyer.

What are punitive damages?

Punitive damages are a type of monetary compensation awarded to a plaintiff in addition to actual damages, which are intended to compensate for the plaintiff’s losses.

Unlike compensatory damages, which are meant to make the plaintiff “whole” again, punitive damages are meant to punish the defendant for their behavior and deter others from engaging in similar conduct.
