Amit Sondhi is dedicated to making a difference in people's lives by helping them seek recovery from personal injuries sustained from construction accidents (ladder / scaffold fall), work-related accidents, premises accidents (slip / trip and fall), motor vehicle accidents and mass transits accidents.

Mr. Sondhi gained his experience working with large New York City law firms handling personal injury and commercial litigation claims involving municipalities, government agencies, private corporations, and individuals. His experience includes extensively litigating hundreds of cases that resulted in beneficial settlements for his clients.

Unlike many attorneys, Mr. Sondhi's unique training and experience defending personal injury claims has given him additional insight into the strategic approach and tactics employed by insurance companies. He is able to utilize this knowledge to more aggressively and efficiently handle personal injury cases for his clients.

Mr. Sondhi earned his J.D. from the Touro Law School,where he graduated in the top of his class with special honors. While in law school he had the privilege of serving as a summer law clerk to the Honorable Arlene R. Lindsay, a Federal Magistrate Judge in the Eastern District of New York, and as an intern with the United States Attorney's Office in the Eastern District of New York. He is admitted to practice in New York, and is a member of the New York State Trial Lawyers Association and South Asian Bar Association.

Mr. Sondhi manages all aspects of civil cases from inception to trial, including conducting investigations, appearing in court, conducting and defending depositions, drafting motions, engaging in oral argument, negotiating settlement, and preparing for trial. His cases involved construction workers falling from ladders and scaffolds, falling into excavations and openings, being struck by falling objects, and tripping and slipping on workplace hazards.

He has obtained several verdicts at trial, including a large verdict in Westchester County for a client that was injured in a rear-end automobile collision. He has also appeared before the Appellate Division, First Department, and successfully prevailed on an appeal involving an unconsious bicyclist who was struck by a vehicle.

Mr. Sondhi grew up in Hicksville, New York, obtained his undergraduate degree from Stony Brook University in Management Information Systems. Prior to becoming an attorney, Mr. Sondhi was a software developer.
