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.
