When you hear “fastest growing law firm in the country,” you probably wouldn’t guess an injury law firm. But up-and-coming attorney David Yerushalmi has managed to emerge in the industry as the fastest growing in the country. Dubbed “insurance companies’ worst nightmare,” Yerushalmi has amassed millions in settlements for his clients, but perhaps what might be most surprising and impressive is the fact that he only established the firm 18 months ago.
Though injury law is often associated with small or trivial cases, Yerushalmi has defied the stereotypes of this particular area of law and turned it into a massively successful business. With a bulldog reputation for fighting for his clients, the majority of the young attorney’s cases have been policy limit settlements, meaning that Yerushalmi has been able to acquire the highest amount possible for his clients’ settlements. With more than 90% of his cases being policy limit cases, he has the work down to a science, resolving most cases in under a year and for some, in less than 45 days. Having attended one of the top law schools in New York City and being chosen as one of only two law students in the country to intern at the renowned Gerry Spence Trial Lawyers College to learn litigation and trial, Yerushalmi comes with the experience of going to whatever distance necessary in order to win his clients cases. With this under his belt, insurance companies are often more motivated to come to a settlement so that they can avoid long litigation and trial.
“The vast majority of our cases have settled for policy limits,” Yerushalmi says. “For example, if someone has a $100K bodily injury insurance policy and they hit our client, more than nine out of ten times we can recover the full $100K. We have been consistent in policy limit after policy limit and that is because we strive on building a bond with our client’s that allows us to really convey their human story instead of just their injuries. We recently did something that most people have never even heard of, which is opening the policy and receiving 2.5x the policy limits on one case.”
With another hundred plus cases on his desk, Yerushalmi’s firm is set to settle millions in settlements in the coming months. From car accidents to brain injuries, catastrophic injuries, amputations, and even influencer injuries, the young and eager lawyer has certainly proven his ability to master injury law, no matter how common or rare the case may be. With just 18 months down, Yerushalmi Law Firm is poised to be one of the most successful law firms in the country.
