Our medical malpractice attorneys in the Bronx believe in holding negligent doctors, nurses, hospitals, and other medical providers, accountable.

Why Wolf & Fuhrman LLP?

Committed to Our Clients & Our Community

Our attorneys are truly committed to their clients and have extensive experience in both medical and legal issues, combined with a track record of success. Eliot Wolf and Marvin Fuhrman are lifelong friends who began their law partnership in 1991. Eliot was a successful foot surgeon when he told his buddy Marvin, a partner in a New York City law firm, that he intended to go to law school at night while running his medical practice during the day. From there, the idea was born for Wolf & Fuhrman LLP. The two friends have successfully practiced law for more than 30 years, the last 15 of which have been out of their storefront offices on Webster Avenue in the Bronx. At Wolf & Fuhrman LLP, we seek justice and compensation for victims of medical errors and personal injury throughout the Bronx and New York.

Wolf & Fuhrman LLP began based on Eliot’s medical background and Marvin’s trial experience as a defense attorney representing doctors and hospitals for the Medical Malpractice Insurance Association. The firm grew to 20 attorneys in 11,000 square feet of office space in Midtown Manhattan. Around 2001, Wolf & Fuhrman LLP chose to become lean and mean, and Marvin and Eliot chose to devote their legal talents solely to seeking compensation for injured victims in the Bronx and throughout New York State. As plaintiffs’ personal injury attorneys, Eliot and Marvin take great satisfaction in obtaining justice and compensation for their clients.

  • Over 65 Years of Combined Experience
