Port Jefferson, Long Island Personal Injury Attorney


Our mission has always been to help rebuild the lives of those harmed by the negligent and wrongful conduct of others.

For the past 22 years, the Law Office of Richard J. Kaufman has been among the leading Suffolk County law firms in the area of personal injury and tort law. Our office located in Port Jefferson, New York, handles each matter thoroughly from the initial investigation through to trial and even through the appeals process if necessary to protect a favorable ruling and to challenge an unfavorable one. Mr. Kaufman’s 34 years of trial experience ranges from having been an assistant district attorney and the Confidential Law Secretary to a New York Supreme Court Justice to having obtained a $2 million recovery for a client upon a favorable verdict after trial. In fact, our office’s reputation for quality and personal legal services in this field has often been the source of matters being referred to us by our own colleagues.

We accept all personal injury and wrongful death cases on a contingency fee basis which mean that if there is NO RECOVERY, NO FEE is charged. Only after your case has been settled or a judgment obtained and satisfied do we deduct legal fees and costs from the amount recovered.  Our goal is to achieve fair and just compensation for our clients through understanding and compassion, while using aggressive representation throughout the legal process. 

Our law firm handles numerous types of personal injury matters and includes having obtained substantial recoveries on behalf of our clients over the past years for:

  • Automobile accidents

  • Motorcycle accidents

  • Premises liability

  • Slip/trip & fall

  • Schoolyard accidents

  • Dog bite accidents

  • Medical & dental malpractice

  • Hospital negligence

  • Food poisoning

  • Products liability

Among the recent successes we have been able to achieve on behalf of our clients are:
