The Monier Law Firm was founded by Philip as a boutique law firm dedicated to provide personalized, individualized and aggressive representation to those seriously injured through the fault of another’s carelessness or negligence with five basic principles that have guided him throughout his legal career:

  • The Clients’ needs come first
  • The Client has one case, so treat it as your most important case
  • Work tirelessly and aggressively with dedication and perseverance
  • Keep the client informed of the process every step of the way
  • Be sincere in your desire to truly make an improvement

It is these five principles that have led to the results he has obtained for hundreds of clients in New York and New Jersey over the years.

Philip graduated from St. John’s University, School of Law, cum laude, in 1991 where he served on The St. John’s Law Review and was a recipient of the St. Thomas Moore Scholarship.  He’s had the honor of interning with United States federal judges sitting in the Souther District of New York, the United States Court of International Trade, and, by designation, the Circuit Courts of Appeals.  He is a member of the New York Trial Lawyers Association, New Jersey Association for Justice and the American Bar Association.  He has appeared on local and national news programs on ABC, NBC and CBS, and has been quoted and covered in major New York newspapers, as well as legal verdict result publications.   In addition to the  success he has enjoyed at the jury trial level, he has helped shaped decisional law  for almost twenty-five years, successfully arguing cases before appellate courts in state and federal courts in New York and New Jersey, which have resulted in decisions which lower courts have since been required to follow.  In addition to handling cases in New York and New Jersey, he has handled matters for clients internationally, as far away as the Dominican Republic, and has been specially admitted to represent clients in cases in jurisdictions such as Delaware, Vermont, and Connecticut.

If you or a member of your family has been injured as the result of an accident, then you are going through a situation that is difficult, painful and at times uncertain.  More often than not, pain, disability, lost income, and other life altering consequences follow as a result of being seriously injured in an accident.  Each person we speak with is provided our experience, dedication, compassion, and personalized service .
