New York, NY (PRWEB) September 23, 2012
New York personal injury lawyer, Kenneth A. Wilhelm has been selected to become a member of The National Trial Lawyers: Top 100 Trial Lawyers. The National Trial Lawyers Group in its letter to Mr. Wilhelm identified him as being a "part of an elite group of the top attorneys from the state of New York."
The National Trial Lawyers is a professional organization of the nation's top trial lawyers and is currently in its fifth year as an association. Membership to the organization is by invitation only. According to the group, this invitation is "extended to those individuals who exemplify superior qualifications, trial results and leadership in the respective state." The letter addressed to Mr. Wilhelm further states: "The National Trial Lawyers has evaluated your qualifications and now extends an exclusive invitation to you based on your performance as an exceptional trial lawyer."
"Membership into this exclusive group of professionals is truly an honor. Our law firm has been serving the people of New York for the last 40 years," Wilhelm said. "We believe that we fight the good fight. We never hesitate to take a case to trial, if that is what it takes to help our injured clients get the compensation they rightfully deserve."
The law firm's medical malpractice attorneys obtained an $800,000 jury verdict in the Bronx County Superior Court (Case # 8785/2007) for a child who suffered a permanent scar and injury as the result of improper IV administration at a local hospital. The defendant offered a $250,000 settlement. But the firm fought aggressively and brought in experts to testify regarding the permanent injuries suffered by the young boy. This contributed to the $800,000 award.
"There is no question that it takes a lot to be a successful trial attorney," Wilhelm said. "It requires skill, knowledge, tenacity and the capacity to be creative and resourceful as well. Taking a case to trial and winning is not only exhilarating, but in many of these cases, it is the right thing to do. For our most seriously injured clients, we are their only hope."
