Where clients are not numbers, attorneys at Baron Law Firm, PLLC work to give every case their undivided attention and serve the community with integrity.
“It’s a personal place,” Jeffrey Baron, Esq, owner of the East Northport firm, said. “Clients know that they are acknowledged here and that they are appreciated. The clients that we have, they’re with me because they like me and they trust me.”
Located at 166 Laurel Road, Suite 203, the firm handles personal injury and civil litigation, representing individuals, businesses, and insurers in civil actions.
“We do primarily insurance defense work and personal injury,” Baron, 46, of Commack, said. “We represent insurance companies on the defense side and we represent plaintiffs.”
With five attorneys that amount to more than 85 years of combined experience, the team defends and prosecutes claims and lawsuits involving negligence, recklessness, intentional acts, omissions, products liability, wrongful death, labor law, construction accidents, municipal law, and fire, flood and other property damage.
“If you bring your case here, it’s going to get done by an experienced attorney and it’s going to get a lot of personal attention because we’re like a boutique law firm,” Baron said, adding that the firm serves throughout Long Island, from Riverhead, to the five boroughs of New York City.
He added, “We’re very detail oriented,” and keep the work volume relatively low to ensure the best service to every case.
Baron started the office as a solo practitioner in 2002, and the office slowly began to grow, he said. The firm was formally set up in 2005.
For Baron, he said he wears “two hats,” one as a lawyer, managing cases, and the other as firm operator, which includes supervising, handling finances, promotion and more.
“It’s a challenge. I’m constantly learning,” Baron said. “I’m learning as a lawyer and I’m learning as a businessman.”
Baron grew up in Dix Hills and graduated from Half Hollow Hills High School West in 1988. He then graduated from University of Michigan, Ann Arbor in 1992 with a bachelor’s degree in English literature, and he earned his Juris Doctorate from Benjamin Cardozo School of Law in 1995.
Baron was admitted to the New York and New Jersey State Bars and the U.S. District Courts for the Eastern and Southern districts in 1996.
Baron said when it comes to his cases he will always puts in his best effort and never delivers inadequacy.
“If I take your case, it’s the most important thing in my life,” he said. “I refuse to do less than the best job. Anything I work on gets my full and undivided attention.”
Baron added that he tries to make the office an enjoyable place for both his staff and his clients.
“I take a lot of pride in my firm. It’s a reflection of me,” Baron said about the firm. “We’re like a family here and we grow together. It’s my home away from home.”
