We understand how an accident can turn your life upside down. We know how difficult it is when you are left disabled, injured or unable to work. We know you need someone who understands what you are going through and who is able to provide the legal advice you need. From the very first meeting, we will take every necessary action we can to protect your rights and this will be the foundation upon which we build the rest of your case. Our approach allows us to prepare your case as if it will ultimately be heard by a jury in a courtroom, even though most cases settle before the trial phase commences.

My name is Lana and I have several years of experience working in boutique law firms in Queens and Nassau County, New York. I specialize in No-Fault Insurance, as well as conducting client intakes upon first meeting. My job is to gather all the information so the clients’ cases meet important insurance deadlines in order to file a claim, process the no-fault application, communicate daily with insurance adjustors for insurance policy information and liability decisions, get bodily injury policy limits from at fault parties, and submit property damage claims for our clients’ vehicles. When our clients have financial struggles resulting from their personal injury accidents, I will be the person to explain and help with their loan application, and I always try my best to get the client approved, in a timely manner. I work to provide relief and steadfast support for our clients with their insurance and financial struggles which are a result of their car accident and other personal injury accidents. My goal is to make the insurance claim process smooth and stress-free for our clients so they can focus on their treatment and getting better.
My name is Aly and I have over 15 years of experience working as a legal assistant and litigation paralegal. Here at Yakov Mushiyev & Associates, P.C., I am both the litigation and trial paralegal who puts our clients’ cases into suit, after negotiations to settle with the insurance adjustors have been exhausted and the amount that our client deserves has not been reached. I investigate which parties are involved in the action, draft and e-file the Summons and Complaint and I do follow-up to make sure all defendants are served. Once this is done, we are then in the litigation phase of the legal process and our office can begin the discovery exchange for our clients in the hopes of obtaining a more favorable settlement. If settlement offers are not satisfactory, I then work in tandem with the trial attorneys to fully prepare each case for trial, with the goal of being rewarded a favorable compensation by the judge and jury. Working diligently every day, with focus and care, we have a chance to make a positive difference to our clients’ lives during their time of injury and need. Our law firm is dedicated to giving top quality representation to anyone who has suffered from an injury due to someone else’s negligence, and we fight for our clients every step of the way.
