Before becoming a lawyer, Michael Fitzpatrick was a uniformed New York State Court Officer, serving in Manhattan Family Court for six years. During that time he undertook the study of law at night in an expedited program. In 1998 he graduated with honors and began practice in one of the New York City Law Department's busiest offices, the Brooklyn Tort Division. There, he was responsible for personal injury trials in both the Civil and Supreme Courts. In 2002 he entered the private sector, concentrating on personal injury litigation. Since then, Michael has gained extensive experience in arbitration and mediation, earning millions of dollars for his clients.

Wingate, Russotti, Shapiro & Halperin, LLP, understand the great need to limit the spread of COVID-19 through social distancing and safe health practices in order to protect our clients, our staff, and our fellow New Yorkers. Our team has complied with New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s request to remain indoors during this difficult time and to minimize close contact with at-risk individuals.

However, while the state of New York is on PAUSE, the hardworking legal team at Wingate, Russotti, Shapiro & Halperin, LLP, is still devoted to serving our clients’ needs. We have set up our employees to work remotely and to handle all ongoing cases from home. We are available to respond to any emails or calls about your case and are still actively pursuing compensation from at-fault parties.

In addition, we are always accepting new clients over the phone, by email, or through our contact form, and we are available to schedule a free consultation by video call. If you have a personal injury case and need compassionate and experienced representation, do not let Covid-19 stop you from pursuing compensation. Our attorneys are readily available to discuss all your legal options with you and will ensure all deadlines are met.

Despite the struggles of the past month, we have not forgotten about our duty to defend the rights of our fellow New Yorkers and are ready to face any challenges as they come. Come rain or shine, we are here to represent your interests when you need us most.
