A sampling of the appeals in which Mr. Asch argued successfully on behalf of our clients follows:
Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, Scott attended Binghamton University and received his juris doctorate from the Benjamin Cardozo School of Law. He brings an unparalleled intensity to the courtroom hidden behind a calm and relaxed demeanor. He has a strong background in motion and trial practice with a track record of continued successes. He is a firm believer that someone that has been injured through the negligence of someone else deserves compensation for those injuries, and he relentlessly pursues justice on behalf of his clients, whether through discovery, settlements or verdicts. Recently, he successfully wrote and argued the motion and appeal papers in Espinal v NYCHHC, where the Appellate Division affirmed the lower court decision which struck the answer of the defendant.
His verdicts include some of the largest reported in New York State in their respective years and are recognized as such.
**It should be noted that the Espinal verdict in 2016 was listed in the New York Law Journal as the 13th highest premises liability verdict from the years 2011-2016 of all the verdicts obtained in New York State during that 5 year period. The article is here.
