What Real Clients Say About Powers & Santola

My experiences with Powers & Santola were always positive.

Dan Santola helped guide my family through a difficult time and process with the highest sense of compassion and knowledge. Dan’s reputation in his field was evident. When I told other lawyers (both friends and business contacts) that we were working with Powers & Santola, we always hear in response – ‘Oh, they are by far the best in the state.

It was not a long drawn out affair!  I highly recommend this firm

As an injured client, the team at Powers & Santola explained the legal process in a friendly manner that I could understand.  In court, they were very professional.  After, they helped in obtaining health insurance and information on handling my settlement. They had a very friendly and caring team, even after case was done.  Oh yeah, they are fast.

Changing Lives for the Better

When someone injures you, your life gets turned upside down. Suddenly, you may face a ton of medical bills. You may be unable to work or help out around the home. Others may need to care for you around the clock. Nothing is the same.

When we take on your personal injury case, our goal will be to fundamentally change your life for the better – and we have what it takes to pursue that goal.

Our attorneys thoroughly investigate cases and explore all sources of compensation available to our clients. We know how to aggressively negotiate with insurance companies and successfully prepare cases for trial. In every case, we focus on even the smallest details. We realize that those details can make a major difference in the outcome of our clients’ cases.


For more than three decades, Powers & Santola, LLP, has fought for compensation for personal injury victims and their families in New York. Through the years, we have achieved numerous multi-million-dollar settlements and verdicts on behalf of our clients in a wide range of cases, including those involving medical malpractice, construction accidents, car accidents and defective products. In fact, one of our founding attorneys, Daniel R. Santola, authored New York’s leading treatise on construction accident claims.


Our law firm features seven veteran attorneys and a legal staff that is hard-working and wholly committed to providing our clients with the service and support they need during challenging times. We accept only a limited number of cases. There’s a reason for that: We want to make sure that each client receives the full benefit of our resources and gets the personal attention they deserve.


Based on factors such as professional achievement and peer review, five of our attorneys have been recognized as “Super Lawyers” and “Best Lawyers in America.” In fact, U.S. News & World Report/Best Lawyers rated Powers & Santola, LLP, as one of the “Best Law Firms” in the country. Insurance companies know that every case we handle has merit. They also know that we meticulously prepare cases for trial. That reputation can give us leverage when we deal with insurance companies and pursue full and fair compensation for our clients.
