Our Firm

Kramer, Dunleavy & Ratchik, PLLC is one of the premier personal injury in the state of New York. Throughout its existence, the firm has been driven by a single purpose: to help people who have been injured due to the wrongdoing of others. How do we do this? By speaking with our clients, listening to their stories and understanding how their injury impacted their lives and loved ones.

The firm had its beginnings more than fifteen years ago when Lenore Kramer and Denise Dunleavy, already seasoned litigators, combined their skill and experience to create the first law firm in New York to focus on women’s health and safety issues. Kramer, Dunleavy & Ratchik, PLLC continues their tradition of excellence, striving to protect the rights of injured New Yorkers and be their voice for justice.

What sets us apart from the countless other personal injury law firms in New York State:



The attorneys at Kramer, Dunleavy & Ratchik, PLLC have devoted their entire legal careers to personal injury litigation and to pursuing justice on behalf of those who have been seriously injured due to the negligence of others. Our attorneys are well-respected by both the Bench and the Bar and have been recognized nationally and throughout New York State for their leadership, legal knowledge and trial advocacy.

This allows us to focus on our clients and their cases and to dedicate our resources to achieving the best possible outcome on their behalf. Clients are involved throughout the litigation process to make sure their questions are answered and ensure that their rights are protected.



Kramer, Dunleavy & Ratchik, PLLC is not afraid to go head-to-head with the biggest insurance companies and their defense firms.
