No matter how complex the lawsuit, we pride ourselves in being able to navigate the often-confusing world of New York laws, regulations, and governmental agencies. However, no matter how busy with the litigation process we are, we always have time to answer questions, and address concerns of our clients with the respect that they deserve.


Since Christopher J. Gorayeb joined Gorayeb & Associates as Managing Partner in 1986, he has shown an unrivaled level of dedication and commitment to the rights of the Hispanic working community, which is reflected in the firm often being referred to as “Los Abogados del Pueblo” (The Lawyers of the People).  When Christopher Gorayeb is not hard at work for his clients, he is doing outreach supporting numerous local Hispanic initiatives and organizations.

Chris Gorayeb’s sensibility has attracted numerous bilingual Latinos to work for the firm. In fact the entire staff is bilingual.  These committed staffers have demonstrated a level of professionalism which has in turn inspired clients to recommend Gorayeb & Associates as the “go to” firm for the Hispanic community’s legal needs.


Too many individuals elect not to pursue an injury claim case for a multitude of wrong reasons without consulting a lawyer — or after consulting the wrong lawyer. We encourage you to allow us to review the facts of your case in a free consultation and provide a straightforward assessment.

Our cases are taken on a contingency fee basis, which means you do not pay attorney fees unless we obtain a recovery for you, either through a settlement or a judgment.
