Associate Vice President for Risk Management

Major New York University Medical Center

For 17 years, I have worked with other attorneys but none have come close to Mr. Mobilia’s high caliber. When meeting, he always accommodated my busy surgeon schedule and I have his undivided time and attention. He always takes the time to explain the law and its complexities. The reassurance and confidence he provides to me is invaluable. The quality of service and dedication he provides is priceless. He is a gleaming example of an individual truly dedicated to his craft and the clients he serves. Recommended 5.0/5.0

Client Review in Medical Malpractice.

“I have known Peter Crean professionally for over 20 years. What immediately stands out about Peter is his meticulous attention to detail in defending each case. His attentiveness is likened to that of a surgeon performing surgery – nothing is overlooked. Peter’s passion for defending his clients fuels him to wholeheartedly dig into the case to understand the medicine and to cover all the bases in representing his clients.”
