The effectiveness of my partnership with my client allows me to prepare each case in accordance with its own unique set of facts and circumstances. It is only through this partnership that the injured people whom I represent are able to be compensated fairly and adequately for the pain and suffering that they have endured.

About Kenneth Halperin

Ken is in charge of the firm's complex litigation and construction case units. He also handles a wide variety of cases in the areas of general negligence, automobile liability and premise liability. He is responsible not only for the litigation aspects of the case, but also the day to day management of the cases in which he and other attorneys in his group are involved. His primary goal, and that of the firm, is to work closely with all of our clients on their cases from inception through settlement or trial. Ken’s goal is to maximize every client’s recovery by focusing on each aspect of their claim that leads to large settlements and verdicts. This includes ensuring that all of his client’s pain and suffering claims are documented not only for treatment that they have had, but as important, treatment that they will need in the future; maximizing recovery of lost wages and other collateral sources, like pension and annuities; and finally focusing on the calculation of future medical expenses that his client’s may endure and thus need to be compensated for.

Along with several other attorneys at WRSH Ken also regularly lectures on construction site workplace safety at several NYC local union halls during the union members local meetings and mandatory trade instruction classes.

Ken also takes an active role in the community and in organizations that are important to our practice. He is a member of the New York State Bar Association and The New York State Trial Lawyers Institute, where he is a member of the Labor Law Committee. He is also the incoming President (2017) of the Jewish Lawyers Guild. Ken is a former member of the Kings County Judicial Screening Committee where he was charged with the responsibility of screening Judicial candidates who are running for election.

Ken takes great pride in performing pro bono legal work on behalf of the community as well. In the past he has volunteered to help sick children at the Ronald McDonald House in New York City and also provided pro bono legal services for an organization that assists indigent women in need of free legal representation. Currently, he provides pro bono legal services as part of the City Bar Association Cancer Advocacy Program, which provides free legal services to cancer patients involved in disputes with their insurance companies.

Ken is also on the Board of Directors of the Precious Dreams Foundation. This foundation raises money to provide comfort items such as blankets, pillows and stuffed animals to inner city children before they are moved into foster homes.
