Ranked as one of the top lawyers in New York and the United States

Ranked as one of the top lawyers in New York and the United States, Jordan Merson focuses on cases involving injured children, grappling with issues ranging from birth injuries and medical malpractice to the harrowing aftermath of sexual abuse, showcasing his unwavering commitment to justice for the most vulnerable.

Dubbed the “trial lawyer to the stars,” Merson has also been called the “go-to lawyer nationally in other high-stakes, high-profile cases,” having fearlessly taken on the likes of Jeffrey Epstein, Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby, Larry Nassar and many others.

In recent years, he secured the largest personal injury jury verdict in New York County, not once, but twice. Notably, a $28 million verdict for a former New York Giants player in a medical malpractice case not only underscored Merson’s legal prowess but also garnered widespread media attention, a testament to his ability to command both courtroom and public discourse.  Merson has been referred to as the lawyer “equivalent of Patrick Mahomes in football, Pete Sampras in tennis, or Bill Bradley in basketball and politics.”
