"In 1993 when we started our firm, we knew that if we wanted to be successful, we had to put our clients first," said Lake.
SAYVILLE, NY, April 18, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Gacovino, Lake & Associates, P.C. opened its doors on April 15, 1993. On its 25th anniversary, the firm is reflecting on all the people they've helped in their Long Island community, throughout the state of New York, and across the country.
"When somebody contacts us, it's at a difficult time in their life," said Steven Gacovino, one of the firm's founding partners. "We help people injured in an accident or hurt by a consumer product or medication. Our clients are in pain, face an unsure future, and are feeling the pressures of financial stress. Our staff recognizes the fear and uncertainty our clients face and use it as motivation to take that one extra step, no matter how small, to relieve the client's burden."
Helping people who are in pain, dealing with financial stress, and suffering emotionally is what motivated Gacovino and his partner, Edward Lake, to open the law firm 25 years ago. "In 1993 when we started our firm, we knew that if we wanted to be successful, we had to put our clients first," said Lake. "That's why we make three guarantees to clients: to use our experience to guide each case; to represent clients with integrity and to make client service our firm's primary objective."
In its 25-year history, Gacovino, Lake & Associates, P.C. and its associated trial firms have litigated tens of thousands of cases and recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for their clients. But the firm considers the effects of its service for each individual client as its most inspiring success. In just the last three years, they have recovered $1.3 million for a victim of a motorcycle wreck, $750,000 for a slip and fall victim, and $450,000 for a victim of an automobile accident, among many other successful recoveries.
"The compensation we recover is more than just money to our clients," said Gacovino. "It's a way to pay bills when they can't work, to keep getting medical treatment now and into the future, and to once again achieve peace of mind after months or years of financial stress and physical pain."
Gacovino, Lake & Associates, P.C. will celebrate 25 years of helping people by offering $1,000 college scholarships to two deserving students who demonstrate a passion for helping others through community service. The firm will formally announce the scholarship later this spring. It will be open to students across the nation.
