Andrew J. Barovick, Esq.
Andrew J. Barovick brings over 25 years of legal experience to the SR Law team. Andrew devoted his early career to public service, where he assisted crime victims in achieving justice, and learned the courtroom skills necessary to be a forceful advocate on behalf of his clients.
A graduate of Columbia College and Cardozo School of Law, Andrew began his legal career at the Queens County District Attorney’s Office, where he tried over 20 felonies to verdict, and argued an equal number of appeals before the Appellate Division, Second Department, the New York Court of Appeals and the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.
Upon entering the private sector, he worked for several insurance defense firms, focusing on the defense of medical malpractice cases. He left the defense side to work on behalf of injured plaintiffs, focusing on medical malpractice and personal injury law.
At those big firms, he gained additional, valuable experience. But Andrew also saw that clients were treated as “files” that could be handled by any one of a number of lawyers. The clients felt undervalued, and the attorneys could not devote their efforts to focus on a set group of clients. This led him to envision a different way to practice and eventually to joining SR Law.
Andrew has worked hard to achieve his vision. He has obtained significant recoveries for his medical malpractice and personal injury clients, all while treating them as important individuals.
Andrew has taught trial advocacy at Cardozo School of Law’s annual Intensive Trial Advocacy Program, has written and lectured for NYSTLA’s Decisions Continuing Legal Education (CLE) program, and is the creator and principal author of The New York Medical Malpractice Law Blog. Through the City Bar’s Medical Malpractice Committee, he has been active in the writing and presentation of related CLE programs for several years.
He enjoys CrossFit, being part of a book club and spending time with his family.
