On October 10, 2010 I had an accident with my motorcycle. I was taken to Horton Hospital where I remained for a week. There I had emergency surgery to repair my broken femur with a titanium rod. I spent the first 3 days in ICU. Upon being released, I spent the next 5 months going to physical therapy and follow up doctor visits. Was unable to work for 6 months.

When I purchased the motorcycle, I had already taken the motorcycle safety course. Since it was a new purchase, I obtained "full coverage" for insurance purposes. Personally, I had no medical insurance. The mistake I made, was to "assume" the motorcycle policy would provide medical coverage in case of an accident. It does, but only $1,000. I was facing over $100,000 in medical costs. That is when I knew I needed Jim Cupero.

From my initial visit to his office, Mr. Cupero and his staff were honest and frank with me. My case was handled with compassion and professionalism. From their experience with motorcycle accidents, we were able to settle with the other vehicle's insurance company, therefore getting all my medical bills paid. What a relief.

To anyone in this type of predicament, I would highly recommend you schedule an appointment with Mr. Cupero.

Jim, thanks again for all your work regarding my daughter Brianna's car accident back in '04. She really felt at ease working with you and felt you were covering all bases in her defense.
- Thomas Jacaruso


We were extremely pleased with the services rendered us by Attorney Jim Cupero and his excellent staff. After my accident, not knowing where to turn, my wife made several phone calls but after speaking with Mr. Cupero we felt no need to meet with anyone else. We were immediately impressed with his honesty and forthright manner, his knowledge, experience and meticulous attention to detail. It was a relief to us both to place my case in such competent hands so we could focus on my recovery. Mr. Cupero's assistants were extremely knowledgeable and efficient as well as being genuinely kind and considerate people, as was Jim Cupero himself. There was never a question or concern they were unable to resolve for us. My case was favorably settled in a more than timely fashion and we were very happy with the outcome. Thank you Jim Cupero and staff for turning what could have been a long, drawn-out and painful process into such a positive experience for us.
- With sincerest regards, Rick Jung and wife, Lin


After my traumatic accident, I could not believe that I would have found such a caring and thoughtful team as Jim Cupero and his diligent associates. Jim led me clearly and consistently through one of the most painful and trying times of my life. I never experienced chronic pain until after my ordeal but the understanding and guidance that was given to me was awesome. It absolutely made my journey through this period more tolerable.

They were more than patient with my often callings for answers about things I could not understand and shedding light to a complicated event. I have to thank you, Jim Cupero and your staff for outstanding and professional performance in this matter. I will always highly recommend you to all that need legal assistance. Thank you and God bless you.
- Rose Roberts

- Steven Maleike


Dear James Cupero and Staff,

I am very happy to give a commendation of your law practice and your handling of my injury case.

In the horrible and chaotic aftermath of my auto accident, your office helped me handle everything. My husband and I were personally emotionally overwhelmed with doctor appointments of every kind and it was so reassuring to direct all other concerns to you and your office.

Our phone calls were always handled promptly and our questions were always answered clearly. The overwhelming amount of paperwork was happily accepted by your office! We couldn't have asked for a more competent advocate than you.

Your staff was so knowledgeable about every detail that we didn't need to have much contact with you. But when that time did come, towards the final resolution, David and I were immensely impressed with your ability.

We were very satisfied with the final financial settlement (considering the limited resources of our opponent) and we know it's all due to your skill. I would highly recommend you to anyone who needs your services.
- Barbara Holt


Dear Mr. Cupero,

Once again, I sincerely wish to thank you very much for settling my automobile accident of Sept. 3, 2007 in such a professional and efficient manner. Mr. Cupero you acted above and beyond in resolving a difficult case. My husband, Carlos and I will be eternally grateful. We will, without hesitation recommend you very highly to family and friends who might have the need for an excellent lawyer. Thank you!
- Nildalina and Carlos Rivera


We are extremely happy that we chose Mr. James J. Cupero, Esq. as our personal injury lawyer. Mr. Cupero and his office staff have treated us very professionally. My husband felt like a person, not a number like some over-sized lawyers would make you feel. Although our case is still going on, I am extremely confident in Mr. Cupero because of his extensive history of maximizing each client's recovery with his reputation for honest and direct dealings. Mr. Cupero and his office is quick to offer any advice or answer any questions you might have regarding your case. He makes sure you understand exactly what is going on and what to expect. He was extremely open to any questions that we had. We will gladly recommend Mr. Cupero to any of our family or friends should they ever need a personal injury lawyer!!!

Mr. Cupero,

I am writing this letter to thank you for your help in my injury case. Your handling of my case was very professional and thorough and the results were very satisfying. I will be referring friends and family to your firm in the future when the need is warranted. Once again, thank you for your invaluable help.


Dear Jim,

As this year comes to a close, Ellen and I wanted to take the time to thank you for the work you did on Ross 'case. From the outset, we asked that you give us guidance as if this was your own child. We always felt comfortable with the legal advice you dispensed.

Although there are no guarantees in the legal system, you helped us make informed choices that ultimately benefited Ross. While the options and risks were always ours, you presented a fair and balanced appraisal of the initial offerings. We realize you could have advised settling earlier and quickly moved on. We felt that your counseling had Ross's best interest at heart.

Thank you for being professional, respectful and a pleasure to work with. We will continue to recommend you to others without reservation. Have a healthy and happy new year.
- Todd and Ellen Punim

Dear Mr. Cupero:

We wanted to take this time to thank you again for your efforts and hard work on settling our case this past March. Following are our thoughts to you and your staff.

From the day I walked into your office, your staff has treated me with respect, kindness and a willingness to help in any way. Mr. Cupero was honest right from the start and never promised anything he could not deliver. He told it like it was, no flowery phrases, no smoke, just the facts. He truly epitomizes a true and honest attorney. Which in this day and age is very hard to find!
- Richard Stelmach Joan F. Stelmach


I referred an elderly client to Jim Cupero for representation in connection with injuries sustained in a car accident. I found Jim to be conscientious, honest and accessible. He maximized my client's recovery. I am very satisfied with the attention and the representation which he provided in this referral.

Very truly yours,
- Lawrence X. Kennedy, Esq.


I have known James Cupero, in a professional capacity for many years. During that time I referred personal injury actions to him, which I felt had significant monetary value and needed the attention of an attorney who practices solely in the personal injury area.

Each referral that I made to Mr. Cupero was handled in a competent and effective manner. I was always kept apprised of the progress of the case which enabled me to maintain a working relationship with my client. Most importantly my clients and myself were pleased with the result obtained from his representation.

I will continue to refer cases to James Cupero, Esq. in the future.
- Timothy S. McAdam, Esq.


I would like to thank Jim Cupero and his staff. Anytime I called or visited the office I was greeted with courtesy and professionalism. I've never been involved in an injury case before, but Jim and his staff always kept me well informed on the status of the case. Jim's patience in the case provided me with a settlement which my family and I are very satisfied with. In closing once again I would like to thank Jim and his staff and remember to be patient.

Sincerely,
- John R. Meizgaslura Jr.


Courteous, friendly staff. Took the time to help me, as another law office did not listen/ take case. Won the case and now I'd recommend Mr. Cupero to anyone. Large or small case!


Your entire office took care of me calling, checking in, taking care of everything and even more than you should've. You went above and beyond and most importantly you did what you said. You were able to get the maximum settlement without going to court and without putting any stress on me. I appreciate everything you and your staff did for me. Thank you!


Dear Jim.

I found that when my son was injured in a car accident I could not decide who I wanted for a lawyer. I had tried another well known firm but I was just a number. I spoke to an old friend who was also a lawyer in NYC and he recommended Jim Cupero in Goshen. He treated my son's case like we were family. I could call and leave a message and I always received a return call by that evening. Thanks for your prompt and always courteous help.
- Linda C. Sanfilippo


My name is Mr. Odin S. MacDavid and I was involved in a motor vehicle accident. I'm an aircraft crew chief for Northwest Airlines and a happily married man and father of four daughters. My wife works full time as a homemaker and together we raise our children.

Just weeks before the accident we moved back from North Carolina to upstate New York and just four days before the accident we had signed contracts to build our new family home in the Lake George area.

On the evening of the 20th of August I was asked to work additional hours to get a flight out on time to Amsterdam, Holland, having been temporarily assigned to Newark International Airport, which I did. I then drove home on Interstate 87 (the Thruway) and exited by the commons mall outlets in Harriman. At this point, it was now after midnight and I was sitting at a stop light with no one around waiting for the light to change, when suddenly I was struck from behind at an extremely high rate of speed, destroying my car, almost killing me and instantly changing my life.

Through the course of simply picking up a phone book and dialing his law office my journey of putting things back together began. I truly have not encountered a gentleman of his caliber prior to this incident nor have I since this ordeal ended. Let's face it, we have all heard the lawyer jokes and sorry to say, the few bad ones out there ain't the whole profession. I instantly felt an ease with Jim's personality, he truly cares about his clients concerns. Jim was very personable, thoughtful and a helpful advocate for me, guiding me throughout the entire process.

Please keep in mind, not only was I out of work and disabled I had just deposited our life savings to build a new home. Our lives had been turned upside down, now I was being questioned by my lending institution of how I could make house payments. Slowly as months passed, I lost even more, my employer placed me on extended medical leave after having exhausted all family leave time, vacation time and sick time. I now lost all medical and dental coverage, I lost my life insurance coverage, I had to liquidate all retirement savings.

I was near the end of my rope. All this happened because a drunk driver left me for dead and then left the scene of the accident. Once again, Jim and his staff returned every single phone call, answered every question and consoled us every time. Simply put, Jim Cupero personifies the legal profession. I can go on and on...What a Guy...

Who ever reads this letter and feels shy about asking questions, don't. I just hope that you never experience the turmoil I did with the insurance companies, questioning everything that you do and making you feel like it was all your fault. Now that I've had a chance to reflect on this matter, and knowing what I know without any doubts or reservations I would hire Jim again in a New York minute. I hope that day never comes my way again, but it is nice to know that a stand up guy like Jim would be there for my family again.

If by chance you would like to speak to myself or my wife regarding his expertise, please feel free to call us at 518-793-8080
- Mr. Odin S. MacDavid

"Thank you so much for your services. When I had my car accident, the thought of having to get an attorney was really scary. I didn't know where to turn or even who to trust.
