Firm History

McAloon & Friedman was established in 1946. Stanley Friedman, a founding partner, was a trailblazer in the field of medical malpractice defense, known for his keen ability to analyze the strengths and weaknesses of the most complex cases.

As the practice grew larger, the firm’s presence in the medical malpractice defense field grew stronger. In 1979, Ted Rosenzweig came to the firm from the Kings County District Attorney’s office and was made a partner in 1983. Gary Greenfield, who came from the New York County District Attorneys' Office, became an associate with the firm in 1981 and a partner in 1985.

Lawrence Mumm came to McAloon & Friedman from the Kings County District Attorney's office in 1986 and became a partner in 1990. Laura Shapiro, who was Co-Chief of the Medical Malpractice Unit of the Law Department of the City of New York, joined the firm in 1987 and became a partner in 1990.

The firm has continued to grow, and several well known lawyers in the field have joined and became partners, including Steve York.

The firm’s values remain constant: dedication to providing good advice and reliable service.

McAloon & Friedman continues to represent physicians and hospitals insured by all of the major carriers in New York, and serves as counsel to the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation.
