Henry Belsky has been a fierce advocate for his clients for over 50 years. Throughout his years building his career, he has had the opportunity to practice within various areas of the law including criminal litigation and business transactions. Now, as the chair of our litigation team, he focuses on complex litigation matters involving medical malpractice, personal injury and products liability. According to Mr. Belsky, “when it comes to litigation, if you believe the adage that necessity is the mother of invention, you must also believe, as I do, that tenacity is the mother of success.

 


To Mr. Belsky, being a lawyer is not about accepting the first settlement that is offered but rather about working with the client to help them achieve their best possible outcome. Mr. Belsky once represented a high school aged client who was significantly injured when his vehicle went under the trailer end of an eighteen wheeler. The insurance company quickly saw that the truck driver was at fault because he failed to yield the right of way and offered a settlement to make the case go away. However, Mr. Belsky knew that his client’s injuries were so catastrophic that it would necessitate around the clock care for the rest of his life and this settlement offer would not begin to cover those costs. Instead of accepting the offer, Mr. Belsky investigated the company that hired the driver and held them culpable for hiring a driver that they should have known would be a danger on the road. Finding a way to hold the company liable for its negligence allowed Mr. Belsky to achieve a reward of adequate funds for the mother of his client to leave her job and devote herself to the care of her son. In practice, Mr. Belsky’s strategy is to make the best of a bad situation, and his goal is to restore his clients to the same or as similar a situation as they were in before they were involved in an accident caused by the negligence of others.
