Maggy Mazlin Nationally Recognized for Trial Success
It is with great pleasure that we announce the addition of our newest partner, Margaret "Maggy" Mazlin, to the New York office of WSHB. Endorsed by her peers as highly skilled in all aspects of litigation, including trial and appellate practice, Maggy has defended a myriad of clients throughout all five boroughs of New York City as well as Nassau and Suffolk Counties.
“Maggy is broadly recognized for her accomplished trial work, litigating with ease and success, a wide variety of cases to verdict throughout New York,” said Stewart Reid, firmwide managing partner. “She is a trial powerhouse, strategic and thoughtful in her trial work.”
Over the course of her career, Maggy has amassed a stellar record of verdicts in many high profile, complex, high-exposure cases which have drawn praise from jurors, clients and even opposing counsel. “I truly enjoy being on trial, look forward to customizing the perfect strategy for my client, engaging the jury with my presentation of the case and traversing every aspect of trial work,” said Maggy. “I’m very fortunate that WSHB values lawyers who share my love of the courtroom and is providing a platform to showcase my affinity for trying cases.”
Maggy’s addition further cements WSHB's national ranking, repeatedly being lauded nationally for having a strong team of female attorneys, a designation that the firm has been awarded for several years. “I’m so proud that our trial bench includes powerful women like my partner Maggy, who are able to weave complicated facts and legal theories and tell a story to the jury that makes sense with success time and again,” said Tracy Abatemarco, co-managing partner of the firm's New York office. “Having yet another accomplished female join our trial team is thrilling.”
From handling a wide array of matters involving catastrophic injuries to her extensive work on cases arising out of incidents on construction sites, Maggy is well-versed in the formula for superbly defending our clients. She is a seasoned trial attorney who has skillfully traversed all aspects of the litigation process from initial case evaluation through discovery, settlement via negotiation as well as private dispute resolution, trial and appeal. Her extensive experience handling cases involving construction/work site injuries, premises liability, municipal liability, recreational activities, construction defect and insurance coverage will prove to be a great asset here at WSHB. Maggy also brings wide-ranging knowledge representing clients with unique exposure and defenses, such as several, major, public utilities, municipalities and a public housing corporation.
"I welcome the opportunity to be a zealous courtroom advocate for each of my clients. Trial work is really an art and, through the years, I have curated a blueprint for vigorously defending clients by putting the best foot forward on their behalf during every single, critical milestone of trial," said Maggy.
Maggy comes to us as a partner from Russo and Gould in New York City where she defended her clients through trial, arbitration, mediation and the appellate phase of litigation, briefing and arguing appeals before the First and Second Departments of the Appellate Division. She obtained her law degree from Brooklyn Law School and her Bachelor of Science degree from Hofstra University. Maggy is licensed to practice law in New York State as well as the United States District Court for both the Eastern and Southern Districts. She speaks Russian and enjoys scuba diving.
