Martin Letowsky, Medical Malpractice Attorney – Of Counsel
Martin Letowsky is one of the pre-eminent medical malpractice attorneys in the New York metropolitan area. For over 30 years, he has handled some of the most important and largest medical malpractice cases in the area. Martin and Carol L. Schlitt work together on all medical malpractice cases handled by the Schlitt Law Firm.
Mr. Letowsky has particular strength in understanding the complex medical issues and his questioning of the defendant doctors has provided the findings that have led to significant medical malpractice victories.
In one case, Martin flew to Taiwan to question a doctor and got the doctor to admit that a critical lab test result was missing from the medical record compelling the conclusion that it had been removed from the medical record.
His work on that case led the defendant to settle the case for $3 million. In another case, his dogged determination to pursue the truth proved that the medical record had been altered and led to a $23 million structured settlement for a brain injured infant.
Martin has been a partner at four successful firms that focused on medical malpractice cases: Katz & Letowsky, Edelman & Edelman, Roura Melamed & Letowsky, and Maloney & Letowsky. For many years, some of New York’s leading medical malpractice firms have retained Martin’s services on their most difficult and important medical malpractice cases.
Mr. Letowsky is a graduate of Queens College and Hofstra Law School. He is admitted in the State of New York, the Eastern and Southern Districts of Federal District Court and the U.S. Supreme Court.
