Summary

Michael Barasch graduated from Fordham University School of Law in 1980. For 14 years he worked at two well-known personal injury litigation law firms, trying scores of cases on behalf of seriously injured accident victims of automobile accidents, construction accidents, railroad and plane crashes, and medical malpractice. He experienced the thrill of winning cases and the enormous gratitude that his clients expressed when he recovered millions of dollars on their behalf. In 1994, Michael and his law school classmate Jim McGarry decided to pool their resources and experience as New York accident lawyers. They formed the law firm of Barasch & McGarry, P.C. They have represented thousands of seriously injured New York City firefighters, both for their personal injuries as well as to protect their pension benefits.
