David Pollack has been practicing law in New York for more than 35 years. A native of New York City, he was born in the Bronx and grew up in Queens. He began working almost exclusively on medical malpractice litigation at a major law firm while he was still in law school and has continued to concentrate on medical malpractice litigation ever since.
Throughout his career, Mr. Pollack has been known as a sharp and tenacious litigator. He has an impeccable reputation for the quality of his work and his commitment to obtaining the best possible outcome for every client he serves, and has served as trial counsel to many of the New York area’s top firms.
During that time, Mr. Pollack has secured numerous verdicts and settlements, including several in the seven- and eight-figure range. Two of those verdicts were included in the New York Jury Reporter’s Top 100 Verdicts of the Year in the medical malpractice category in 2011 and 2012 respectively.
Since becoming of Counsel to Edelman & Edelman, P.C., Mr. Pollack has been involved in complex birth injury cases. In one recent case, he secured $7 million in damages for a child with cerebral palsy that arose from the mismanagement of a complicated pregnancy, before the child had reached four years of age.
