The hallmark of our legal system is that everyone- regardless of wealth, race, or ethnicity - is equal under the law, has the same opportunity to come to Court and have their case decided upon the facts, the evidence and the law. I am proud to stand up in Court as a Trial Lawyer and my record demonstrates this commitment to my clients.
About Robert Bellinson
Rob was a former Democratic candidate in New York City’s Silk Stocking District on the Upper East Side in two campaigns for the New York State Senate. He almost unseated long time Senator Roy Goodman, despite being vastly outspent by the Republican incumbent, in the closest challenge Goodman faced in decades. Rob then entered private practice where he has tried numerous cases to verdict and has successfully recovered in excess of $10 million for his clients.
Rob is currently admitted to practice in all Courts in New York State and in the United States District Court for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York. He is a member of the New York State Trial Lawyers Association, the New York County Lawyers Association and the American Trial Lawyers Association. Rob has also been selected as a Super Lawyer, an honor which represents true recognition of accomplishment in the field by one’s peers. He has also previously served on his local Community Board, and as a Judicial Delegate in Manhattan.
Rob was an honors student at Ithaca College, where he graduated in 1986. After graduating from Brooklyn Law School in 1989, he was admitted to practice in 1990.
Away from the courthouse, Rob was a member of the gold medal winning U.S. Men’s softball team during the 1999 Pan American Maccabi Games.
Rob is married to Robyn, a psychotherapist in private practice. They have three daughters and reside in Westchester.
