Our responsibility is to provide security for you and your family.

Commitment to the Hispanic Community

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 inititatives and organizations.

During the first months of the pandemic, Christopher J. Gorayeb provided support to more than 10,000 local Hispanic families.

Christopher 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.

We will gladly review your case and recommend the next step

Too many people choose not to pursue a claim and lawsuit case for various wrong reasons without first consulting an attorney - or they consult the wrong attorney. Our cases are taken on a contingency fee basis, which means that you do not pay attorney's fees unless we obtain a recovery for you, either through a settlement or a judgment. We are here to help you and your family.

If you or someone you know has been injured on a construction site call Gorayeb & Associates at 212-267-9222 for a free consultation.
