Founded in 1987, on Roosevelt Avenue in the vibrant heart of Jackson Heights and then expanding into the Bronx, the law firm of Peña & Kahn has grown to be one of the most respected law firms in New York City. Pena & Kahn fights for the rights of everyday citizens like you who have been unjustly injured due to the negligence of others.
Strengthened by our reputation in the community among our clients, our colleagues, and in the courthouse, Pena & Kahn has become one of the most successful and well known law firms in the region. With 17 attorneys on our staff as well as 40 other staff members we have the necessary combination of experience, tenacity and compassion needed to fight for your rights. The firm is one of New York's leading personal injury litigation groups today, with three offices to serve clients across the region.
Our firm was founded by Jesus J. Peña who has earned a reputation as being a relentless advocate for those in need of a voice in our legal system. His skill and knowledge of the law have been demonstrated over the years from his countless appearances on television, radio and in newspaper as a legal expert, and from some of the famous cases he has handled over his career.
Jesus Peña brought Steven Kahn on to his team in 1998 because of his success and deep understanding of the area of personal injury litigation. Beyond Steven Kahn's skills in the courtroom, Jesus Pena saw that they shared a common vision: to build a law firm dedicated to the legal needs of the community with a legal team that could speak the language of its clientele.
Our mission at Peña & Kahn, PLLC, is to obtain compensation for people who have been seriously harmed through the negligence of others.
Peña & Kahn takes almost every kind of case in which people are injured:
We stand up for people of every age and in every situation, from a baby harmed during a birth trauma to a grandfather suffering daily abuse in a nursing facility. In the case of wrongful death suits, we represent the families of those who perish from their injuries.
Personal injury might be called The People's Law, because it is one of the few ways in which everyday people can stand face to face with large insurance carriers and demand — and receive — compensation for wrongs done to them.
Under the law, if you are injured as a result of someone's negligence, you are entitled to be compensated for your pain and suffering, medical expenses and lost earnings.
It is important to know that Peña & Kahn, PLLC, works for you on a contingency basis. This means you pay us nothing until we produce a positive result for you.
Our Immigration department has helped reunite thousands of families and has helped thousands of clients who immigrated to the United States achieve the American dream.
