Injuries can be an incredible challenge to tackle, but finding the right lawyer to handle the case that follows can make all the difference. Joseph P. Awad has built a strong reputation for himself that has led to his being named as Leading Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice Law Firm of the Year, New York in Acquisition International’s Leading Advisor awards.

In such a challenging area of law, where the stakes are incredibly high for the client, the best help that someone can give themselves is a lawyer who knows what they’re talking about.
Working for the prestigious Silberstein, Awad & Miklos law firm, Mr. Awad has found the ideal place from which to practise his particular set of unique skills. He gained his Juris Doctorate from the Albany Law School of Union University in 1981, but had already begun working at the firm which would become the career of a lifetime in 1980. The firm has gone onto extraordinary success, gaining the title of Nationally Certified Preeminent Law Firm in 1996. It retains this title to this day.

This means that in challenging cases, which many issues of personal injury and medical malpractice are, clients know that they can be certain that their legal matters will be handled with compassion and efficiency.
The record of achievement that Mr. Awad has cultivated over the years is truly exceptional, and he is now able to draw on a health of different cases when a matter goes to trial. He has advocated on behalf of clients who have suffered under matters of medical malpractice, construction site injury, premise security, automobile accidents, municipal liability and unsafe products. These are not small cases. For the client, they can be lifechanging. This is only matched by the rewards that Mr. Awad has been able to gleam from the competition.
Some of the cases that Mr. Awad has fought have resulted in milliondollar recoveries for some lucky clients. This number now reaches to over forty clients over as many cases. It’s an impressive track record for anyone, and reflects well not only on Mr. Awad, but the rest of the firm too. This achievement has secured the highest jury and appellate award in a single year.
When considered the length of Mr. Awad’s career, it might seem obvious that he has been able to find places where he can achieve impressive results for his clients. What cannot be understated is his position as a record breaker in the field of medical malpractice and personal injury, however. He has achieved the largest verdict in history for failure to timely diagnose cervical cancer as well as the largest verdict in history in the field of medical malpractice when it came to cause of action recovery for blindness. These successes are not just impressive for New York, where he achieved the largest medical malpractice verdict in New York State, but it’s a success that is within the top ten of results across the whole of the United States. Mr. Awad’s achievements are not just state-wide, they’re nationwide in their reach.
When people think of Mr. Awad, they might not consider the impact he has. His inspiring presence at the heart of Silberstein, Awad & Miklos, P.C. has led to the firm’s other personal injury attorney’s success. The team never stops thinking of new and exciting ways to develop their persuasion methods, effectively holding big business, corporations, and CEOs accountable to their clients.

His long and varied history of cases has allowed him a unique insight that has long since been regarded as invaluable by those who have utilized his services.
Such a long history of experience and success has obviously created a demand for his services as a teacher and lecturer. Mr. Awad has plenty of skill to pass down to the next generation of lawyers and attorneys, which is why he has spoken at the New York State Trial Lawyers Association, the National Crime Victim Bar Association and the New York State Bar Association and various local bar associations. He previously held a position at the New York State Judicial Institute between 2002 and 2006 as a Faculty Lecturer to the Judiciary.
For many, the work of an attorney is one where the lawyer is looking at their own profit margin, but the success of Mr. Awad and the team at Silberstein, Awad & Miklos P.C. shows how people can find attorneys who are working with their best interests at heart. We hope and expect to see the names of the team from Silberstein, Awad & Miklos P.C. amongst our leading advisors for years to come.
