Howard G. Frederick is a partner of Silbowitz, Garafola, Silbowitz, Schatz & Frederick, L.L.P. and is a seasoned trial attorney who has achieved multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements on cases severely undervalued by insurance carriers and defense attorneys. Howard holds the distinction of being awarded the 2012 New York Law Journal’s recognition for having the #1 Medical Malpractice Verdict and the #1 Motor Vehicle Passenger Verdict in the State of New York. Howard’s cases and verdicts also routinely appear in VerdictSearch’s Top 100 Verdict’s of the Year. He is the consummate Plaintiff’s trial attorney who is committed to his client’s causes and is tireless in seeking awards that truly represent the kinds of significant recoveries to which they are entitled.
Howard routinely works with art directors and certified medical illustrators to develop compelling visual aids and exhibits for presentation at trial. He has found that these presentations greatly assist the jury in understanding the nature and impact of an injury. He has also found that these medical illustrations assist the jury in better understanding complex medical conditions and the visual presentations often captivate, educate and explain the anatomy and nature of the traumatic injuries in a simplistic manner allowing jurors to better understand and evaluate an injury. Howard has also pioneered the use of 3D technology in the courtroom that has been used to supplement the testimony of his expert neurosurgeon.
Howard’s outstanding record of winning multi-million dollar jury verdicts has attracted plenty of media coverage, and he has been cited by numerous legal writers. His signature cases and results have been featured in the New York Law Journal, the New York Daily News, the New York Post, the Wall Street Journal, the Stanford Advocate, the New Jersey Herald, MSNBC, Newsday, the Poughkeepsie Journal, the Washington Post, New York Magazine Top Verdicts, Super Lawyer’s Inductee for Excellence in Practice and his achievements and cases have been broadcasted on NBC News New York, Eyewitness News New York, WABC News New York, New York 1, Fox News New York and have been the subject of a legal documentary produced by the Insider Exclusive television show.
