Civil Rights

We philosophically believe that the Constitution knows no boundaries when it comes to matters of race, religion, sexual orientation, status and wealth. It was our firm’s commitment to social justice that led to one of the highest jury awards in New York State history: An historic $43 million jury verdict against Bernard Hugo Goetz, the notorious subway gunman who gunned down four young Black men in 1984. We represented Darryl Cabey, who Goetz shot after uttering the now famous words, “You look all right. Here’s another.” The bullet severed Darryl’s spine, rendering him a paraplegic and resulting in brain damage.
