During his more than 30 years as a personal injury lawyer, New York WTC Victim Attorney Robert Grochow has served as co-counsel in over a thousand cases, many resulting in New York's largest settlements and verdicts.
His depth of knowledge is reflected as a former Managing Editor of the New York State Trial Lawyers Quarterly and as co-author of the first edition of the New York No-Fault Handbook, still the leading text on automobile No-Fault Laws in New York. Mr. Grochow has represented victims of mass disasters including the unfortunate tragedy of airplane crashes and the World Trade Center attack.
He proudly serves at the forefront of the September 11 litigation, as Counsel, Plaintiffs Liaison, leading the fight for the interests of the first responders and laborers who sustained serious injuries as a result of working at or near the site of the World Trade Center. Mr. Grochow will assume an active role in representing seriously injured individuals from the thousands of people who may now be able to participate in the September 11 Victim Compensation Fund.
Mr. Grochow attended the University of Tennessee Law School and was admitted to practice in the State and Federal Courts in New York in 1975. He started his career and spent many years in association with Schneider, Kleinick & Weitz, long considered the preeminent personal injury firm in New York. After serving as the firm’s Managing Attorney, and then Counsel, he created Robert A. Grochow, PC, where he became a senior partner. Mr. Grochow prides himself on the personal attention he gives to each case and client. He gives back to other lawyers as well, lecturing on the finer points of practicing law.
