Andrew Laskin

Andy Laskin began his 30-year legal career as a prosecutor in Brooklyn Family Court where he tried felony and misdemeanor cases, sometimes two a day, in one of the most congested and chaotic courthouses in the country. There, he honed his trial skills and became a master of the laws of evidence and courtroom procedure. Andy then defended the NYPD in false arrest and excessive force cases in Federal Court. From there, Andy practiced general liability defense, working for insurance companies, and as trial counsel at a large national defense firm. He learned valuable lessons about how cases are valued and how to pinpoint and exploit weakness in an adversary’s argument.

For the past 20 years, Andy has devoted his time to litigating and trying cases on behalf of those injured due to the negligence of others. He is an active member of the New York State Trial Lawyers Association, and a frequent guest commentator on Court TV. Andy teaches trial advocacy at Hofstra Law School during its trial advocacy training program, and he coaches his local high school’s We the People teams. Andy has a longstanding history of trying and settling cases with results well over a million dollars. Some of his past results are below.
