Biography

With decades of experience, Deborah Truhowsky and her team have obtained hundreds of millions of dollars in compensation for injured clients and their families. A compassionate attorney, offering personalized attention, she fights hard to get her clients the compensation they deserve.

Deborah is a staunch and committed advocate of the elderly and all individuals who have been injured as a result of someone else's negligence. She lectures frequently on matters relating to elder neglect and abuse, and has been asked to give testimony on the subject at a government hearing.

She serves as President of the Board of Directors of the Long Term Care Community Coalition, a nonprofit dedicated to improving quality of care, quality of life, and dignity for elderly and disabled people in nursing homes, assisted living, and other residential settings, and is a member of the Orion Resource Group, a community of professionals committed to dealing with the broad needs of the aging community. In addition, Deborah is a recipient of the Circle of Giving Award from the New York Foundation for Senior Citizens Long Term Care Ombudsman Program for her work on behalf of the elderly.
