I am pleased and honored to announce that I have been selected by Bike Law, a national network of attorneys who represent and advocate for bicyclists, to represent injured N.Y. bicyclists. The network, at www.bikelaw.com, was founded by attorneys like me who help victims of bicycle crashes and advocate for safe bicycling.
I am just one of two New York State lawyers named to represent bicyclists through BikeLaw. I will be available to represent clients from Upstate New York (all counties North of Westchester County).
The other N.Y. lawyer selected by BikeLaw is my good friend and excellent bike crash lawyer Dan Flanzig of New York City. Dan will represent N.Y.C. area (Westchester, Dutchess, N.Y.C. & Long Island) bike crash victims.
The Bike Law network was founded by Peter Wilborn of South Carolina and Ann Groniger of North Carolina. Joining Ann and Peter is Bob Mionske, a former professional cyclist and Olympian, and author of “Road Rights,” Bicycle Magazine’s monthly bike law column.
I am truly flattered to join this collective of the best bike crash lawyers in the country and I know that having access to so many of the most experienced bike accident attorneys in the country will greatly assist me in my own representation of injured cyclists. As the old saying goes “two minds are better than one” and with this brain trust of dedicated bike lawyers we will have MANY minds to put to work! 🙂
Joining BikeLaw, will also enhance my cycling advocacy work. As many of my readers know, I enjoy serving on the board of the New York Bicycling Coalition, and I am also a legal adviser to NYBC.
If you or a loved one ever have the misfortune to be injured while cycling, please do not hesitate to give me a call or shoot me an E-mail as I represent bicyclists and their families from New York and Pennsylvania and have received many awards, including being selected Lawyer of the Year by Best Lawyers in America; a New York SuperLawyer for the last six years; and a member of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum.
Thanks for reading, Jim
