Mr. Schreier is able to obtain excellent results for the firm=s clients because of the preparation, diligence and unique strategies Schreier & Wachsman, LLP implements from the moment a case is accepted by the firm.

Mr. Schreier has litigated and tried medical malpractice, personal injury, aviation, and commercial matters in the Federal Court and State Courts in several states, including New York, California, Michigan, Connecticut and North Carolina, as well as matters in the Surrogate=s Courts of the State of New York, including all five boroughs of New York, Nassau County, Suffolk County and Westchester County.

Wachsman to form the partnership of Schreier & Wachsman, LLP.  After a medical malpractice or personal injury case is accepted by the firm, Mr. Schreier attends all the hearings, examinations before trial, most court appearances and, if the case can not be resolved before trial, he is the lawyer who will try the case.
