A Champion In and Out of the Courtroom
Leonard J. Birbrower, Esq. (“Lenny”) has been practicing personal injury law since he moved to Rockland County in 1963. Lenny represents individuals with all types of injuries resulting from: automobile or premises accidents; medical, dental, hospital or nursing home malpractice; and product liability—in addition to serious death claims. He welcomes consultations with individuals, as well as practicing attorneys (who refer their clients to him), on the basis of finding out what happened to them and the seriousness of their injuries. All consultations, no matter how long they take, are always free. In personal injury cases, past results are not a guarantee of future results. However, Lenny’s meticulous efforts in evaluating and researching each individual matter are consistent with the high quality he brings to the practice of law. He is continually recognized as a lawyer of distinction in the practice of personal injury law, and recently received his 5-Star plaque for 2023.
Throughout his career, Lenny has been the prime trial attorney in each of the law firms where he has been a founding partner. The trials have not only concerned accident and injury matters, but his experience also includes criminal trials, corporate disputes, and real estate litigation. Given his long tenure and varied experience, he is regularly consulted by other attorneys who are not familiar with the courtroom or the litigation process.
In his spare time, Lenny brings his vigorous spirit to the dance floor. You can see him regularly competing in multiple events (smooth and rhythm), at the Fred Astaire Dance Studio located in Bardonia, or on Facebook, YouTube, and TikTok. He is proud of his many first-place performances in the senior division (65+) — most recently a performance that brought him a standing ovation! In addition to earning numerous trophies, Lenny was awarded the John Allen Humanitarian Award at the annual Fred Astaire Dance Studio event.
Lenny has also dedicated many hours volunteering for the people of Rockland County. He is a past Chairman and board member of Jawonio, and the first president of the Jawonio Foundation; participated on the selection committee for “40 Under 40”; is a former board member of the Rockland Business Association (RBA); and currently serves on the board of Congregation Sons of Israel in Nyack.
As Lenny always says, “The lawyer you choose makes a difference.”
