Biography:

Ms. Flanzig has been an active litigator in New York for the past 28 years. Her results continue to be high lighted in the New York Law Journal's annual report of "Top 25 Verdicts and Settlements". Cathy has been named one of " New York's Super Lawyer", a list limited to only 5% of the attorneys in the New York Metropolitan area. In 2016, Ms. Flanzig was included in the list of "The Top Woman Attorneys in the New York Metropolitan Area" for obtaining a record setting result of $3 million dollars for the victim of a motorcycle crash.

She heads up the firm's Mass Tort and Class Action practice including such high profile matters as the Avandia Class Action litigation, the well known Dow Corning Breast Implant Litigation and the infamous 1993 World Trade Center Bombing Litigation. She also headed the plaintiff's steering committee involving the notorious 1993 Colin Ferguson shooting aboard the Long Island Railroad.

Her practice includes many issues that are uniquely significant to women, including failure to diagnose breast cancer as well as the failure to provide adequate security or protection that results in sexual assaults or attacks on women. In addition to practicing general negligence, Cathy concentrates on insurance coverage issues, including Uninsured Motorist and No-Fault Coverage disputes and resolving Medicare, Workers Compensation and Private Health Care Carrier's Medical Liens.

She heads the firm's Appellate Practice and has successfully argued cases in the Appellate Divisions of the State. Ms. Flanzig serves as an official Court Mediator in the Supreme Court, Nassau County.
