Marc S. Albert
Marc S. Albert is recognized by his peers for his track record of success, his handling of the “important” cases and his staunch, personal representation of his clients. He has cemented his position amongst his peers as a pre-eminent personal injury and medical malpractice attorney. Since his graduation from law school more than 18 years ago, Mr. Albert has dedicated his practice exclusively to the representation of individuals who have suffered catastrophic injuries as a result of accidents and medical malpractice.
Over the course of his career, Mr. Albert has had diverse experience in both the small firm and big firm atmospheres. He spent the first 7 years of his career litigating personal injury cases from inception through trial for a small Manhattan firm. During this time, through the successful results obtained for his clients, Mr. Albert established himself as an attorney on the rise in New York’s personal injury landscape. By 2003, Mr. Albert had become so well known in the personal injury field that he was asked to join national powerhouse, Seeger Weiss LLP, to run their personal injury and malpractice division.
Mr. Albert spent the following 8 ½ years at Seeger Weiss, where he was named a Partner and played an integral role in building a nationally recognized personal injury practice to match the firm’s already existing reputation as one of the nation’s most important mass tort and class action firms. During his tenure at Seeger Weiss, Mr. Albert not only put together an impressive list of seven figure recoveries for his clients, but also has been recognized on countless occasions for his work on groundbreaking cases involving important issues of personal injury law. He became a “go to” attorney for the press, often being asked to comment by the media on cases of note and having many of his cases covered extensively by print, television and radio media sources. Marc Albert has been featured on such outlets as The Today Show, CNN, MSNBC, Inside Edition, Telemundo, CBS TV News, ABC TV News, WWOR TV News, The New York Post, The New York Times, The New York Daily News and countless others.
Mr. Albert has been involved in some of the more noteworthy cases in the last decade. He received widespread praise for his representation of a 21-year-old female client, Maria B., who was viciously assaulted and raped inside the New York City Transit Authority’s 21st Street/Van Alst Subway Station while at least two Transit employees stood by without rendering assistance. The case triggered an outpouring of emotion from citizens who were outraged at the inaction of the Transit personnel. The case also had the significant impact of raising the level of awareness for all New York women riding the subway.
Mr. Albert also received considerable acclaim for his representation of 11 victims and their families in the tragic Windsor Wildcats Bus Accident case. The accident, which occurred when a Coach Canada bus carrying an under 21 year old female hockey team struck a parked tractor trailer, resulted in four deaths and countless serious injuries. In the first trial relating to the accident in March, 2010, Mr. Albert, together with one of his Partners, Moshe Horn, obtained a $2.25 million verdict on behalf of three of his clients who were passengers on the bus. Mr. Albert was later instrumental in mediating the case with the Court and bringing to resolution a global $36 Million settlement on behalf of the plaintiffs.
Mr. Albert is actively involved in a number of legal organizations, including:
- New York State Trial Lawyers
- American Bar Association
- Trial Lawyers for Public Justice
Mr. Albert is also an active board member of the New York City Chapter of Easter Seals, a charity that helps disabled children.
Mr. Albert approaches each and every case with compassion and dedication to his client. He firmly believes it is critically important for an attorney to get emotionally invested in each client’s case and not merely go through the motions or treat the case solely “as a job”. The attorney needs to take each case personally, feel the hardship that his client is going through, get to know his client and their family, understand their expectations, and fight tooth and nail for that client.
