My name is Anthony Ferrante – I am a New York car accident attorney. I wrote this post to be a resource for folks who need to hire an accident attorney but don’t know anyone personally who can make a referral. Toward that end, below you will find a list of 6 auto accident lawyers (yours truly excluded) who I personally endorse.

Car accident injuries can drastically alter your life. In this situation, few decisions are more consequential than choosing an attorney to help you secure the financial recovery you need to cover your medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and pain and suffering.

Most people would agree that the best way to find a lawyer is to get a personal referral from someone they know and trust. If that person has first-hand experience working with the attorney, all the better.

But in reality, not everyone who needs to hire a car accident lawyer knows someone who can make such a referral. Consider the list below a personal referral from me. If you’ve been injured in a car accident you will be in extremely capable hands with any of the New York City car accident attorneys listed below. I consider them to be some of the best car accident lawyers in NYC.
