Brooklyn law practice

February 18, 2020 – Brooklyn, NY – Leading New York law firm Abrams Fensterman has significantly expanded its Insurance Defense practice with the addition of a team of attorneys – two partners, five associates and support staff members – that specialize in insurance, including fraud and Special Investigation Unit (SIU) matters for major property and casualty carriers. Based in the firm’s Brooklyn office, they’ll serve the needs of clients based in New York State and across the country

The team is led by Randy Faust, Esq., who brings 20 years of significant experience in complex insurance and contract matters. He has represented many of the largest construction companies in the Northeast and has defended hundreds of cases involving construction-related excavation work which resulted in property damage. A former Assistant District Attorney at the New York County District Attorney’s office, Mr. Faust was responsible for the investigation and prosecution of the largest property damage insurance fraud case ever brought in the United States. Beyond insurance, he is an accomplished trial lawyer and a fellow of the Litigation Counsel of America, a distinction offered to less than one percent of American Lawyers for superior ethical representation, effectiveness and accomplishments in litigation at both the trial and appellate levels.

“Randy has a remarkable depth and breadth of experience that adds tremendous capabilities to our expanding Insurance Defense practice as well as our Brooklyn office, which remains the sole powerhouse law firm in the borough,” said Managing Partner Howard Fensterman.

Abrams Fensterman’s Brooklyn office has grown exponentially as the firm bucks the trend of law practices reducing their brick and mortar spaces. In 2016, it established a new home at 1 MetroTech, Brooklyn’s premier business address, with ample room for growing ranks of legal talent. Since then, the firm’s number of attorneys have grown by 20 percent.

“Abrams Fensterman’s success in Brooklyn reflects our early recognition of the borough’s upward trajectory,” said Executive Partner Frank Carone, who has led the Brooklyn office since 2012. “This same foresight prompted us to bring in Randy and his team – a group expertly equipped to meet the need of our insurance industry clients.”

Along with Mr. Faust, Kristina Milone joins Abrams Fensterman’s Brooklyn office as a partner. She brings extensive insurance and courtroom experience, frequently traveling the country to assist at trial in many large, complex exposure cases. She previously served as Deputy County Attorney in the General Litigation Bureau of the Nassau County Attorney’s office and clerked for the Honorable Jerold S. Carter in Nassau County Criminal Court.

Associates joining Abrams Fensterman as part of the team include Tracey Mapou, Faizan Habeeb, Daniel Galan, Jay Min and Conrad Horowitz.
