My mom was struck by yellow taxi back in 2016, she was severely injured. I had the good fortune of being referred to Evan Ross by an acquaintance who had been represented by him in an auto accident. I am happy to say that my mom's case settled recently for much more than we expected and she did not even have to appear in court. We are very grateful to the staff and to Mr. Ross for his unwavering support during this very troubling period. I highly recommend this firm.

As a defense attorney I have had the privilege of opposing Evan many times in the past 20 years. I can say with certainty he has the rare ability to be a formidable adversary and a zealot advocate for his injured clients while still practicing law like a gentleman. That combination has allowed him to obtain the highest verdicts and settlements possible for his clients.

My family has used Evan for as long as I can remember. He is one of the best personal injury attorneys we have came across. I cannot recommend Evan more. He is kind, caring, and compassionate with me every time; his attention to detail and response times with updates on my cases always left me feeling impressed. Thank you Evan!
