Jeff Kimmel has positioned himself as a fierce business leader in the legal industry.

In his role as partner and CEO, he has navigated the firm’s rapid growth and elevated its status to one of the leading and most progressive personal injury and medical malpractice law firms in New York.

The New York Law Journal’s inaugural list of attorneys recognized Jeff as a “Trailblazer,” identifying him as a business leader and true agent of change in the legal field.

As a graduate of Wharton Business School and Brooklyn Law School, Jeff has meticulously combined his entrepreneurial business background with his keen analytical legal sense to cultivate not just a dynamic law firm but an effective, client-oriented business that supports and promotes lawyer development, firm efficiency processes, case value maximization protocols, staffing diversity, and community outreach programs.

“I’m extremely fortunate to be a part of the continuous growth and success of our firm,” Jeff said. “The lawyers and staff all work hard to achieve meaningful results for our clients, and restore for them some security and normalcy in their lives after a traumatic event. There’s a lot of satisfaction in that.”

Jeff prides himself in developing a trusted firm, widely respected by the industry and clients.

To Jeff, the firm’s reputation is paramount to the success of the ever-growing list of satisfied clients. This has led to consistent referrals, not just from those in need of legal representation but also from referring attorneys who appreciate the wealth of experience and extraordinary efforts put forth to ensure that the value of each case is maximized.

As an accomplished trial attorney, Jeff makes certain that the firm spares no expense in prosecuting any case.

While the insurance companies battling the firm are armed with unlimited resources, SSKB’s history of financial achievements has enabled our trial attorneys to prepare and try cases unencumbered by costs.

Jeff’s extraordinary efforts have been recognized in and out of the courtroom. He is widely known in the industry for his various professional publications, some of which include articles published in the New York Law Journal and a chapter on trial preparation and strategy contributed to the popular “Inside the Minds” series by Thomson Reuter.

Additionally, Jeff was invited as an inaugural contributor to the New York Law Journal’s “Smart Litigator” and has provided commentary and expertise as a legal analyst on News 12, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox News stations.

Jeff is also seen as a new thought leader within the legal community as he constantly reciprocates his passion and knowledge of the law as a sought-after lecturer and mentor. He frequently lectures attorneys on trial-related topics for the National Business Institute, NYS Academy of Trial Lawyers, New York County Lawyers’ Association, and Brooklyn Law School.

Additionally, he participates in CLE webinars for Lawline, Clear Law Institute, National Academy of Continuing Education, and myLawCLE. Jeff also regularly participates as a judge in Yale University’s annual Mock Trial competition.

A proud and active participant in a number of professional organizations, Jeff served as chair of the Advisory Committee at Nassau-Suffolk Law Services and as a member of the We Care Committee at Nassau County Bar Association.

He was highly active in the New York County Lawyers’ Association, serving as a former member of the Board of Directors, chair of the Committee on Committees, and chair of the Young Lawyers section, where he established a successful Mentoring Program.

What advice would you give other business leaders?

“Understand that every single member of your team brings a unique, special, individual skill set to your business.

“You should utilize that skill set to create their job description. Everyone is great at something. Nobody is great at everything. Finding people’s natural talents, what comes easy to them, and allowing them to work within that space makes for happy employees and a successful business.”
