James R. Langione (Retired)

James R. Langione

Founding Partner, Retired


   If an attorney can only be judged by their "body of work," it is quite rare to find an attorney who has been individually responsible for attaining more than $1 million for 20 different clients throughout Nassau County, Suffolk County, Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Staten Island, Bronx and Westchester County. It's delivering these outstanding results that is often the best evidence of James Langione's skill set as a litigator.

   When a New York attorney needs to make certain that their loved one, friend or client gets the absolute best representation with their medical malpractice case, or personal injury from an automobile accident, slip and fall or work place accident, they will very often say "call Jim Langione."


   Before forming Galasso & Langione with his partner Peter Galasso in 1988, Jim worked as a senior trial attorney at Bower & Gardner defending doctors and hospitals. His skills as a litigator started when he was as an Assistant District Attorney in the Sex Crimes Unit of the Bronx County District Attorney's office after graduating law school.


   James Langione has over 35 years experience as a trial attorney and more than twenty years experience in successfully representing clients in medical malpractice and personal injury matters with 20 million-dollar verdicts/settlements.


   It is a sad reality that people are injured everyday by the negligence of another person or entity.  Those injuries may be physical, emotional, economic, or a combination of all three.  Mr. Langione has a tremendous track record in recovering money for his clients, which may ease the financial burden of dealing with these types of traumatic injuries.

  Here are just a handful of the extraordinary verdicts and settlement Jim has been able to secure for his clients.


  $2.275 Million won on behalf of a Brooklyn woman who suffered brain damage after being negligently treated in a hospital following a lumbar fusion procedure.

  $2.25 Million won on behalf of a Suffolk County man who suffered orthopedic and neurological injuries as the result of a motorcycle accident.


  $1.98 Million won on behalf of a Westchester County man who was injured while working at his job in Queens.

  $1.675 Million won for a Brooklyn woman on behalf of her newborn child who was injured during an untimely performed cesarean section.


  $1.4 Million won on behalf of a family of a Bronx woman who died as a result of her doctor's failure to diagnose colon cancer.

  $1.3 Million won on behalf of the family of a Suffolk County man who was negligently treated in an emergency room resulting in his death from a blood clot.

    $1.2 Million won on behalf of a Nassau County man who sustained neurological injuries during a cardiac bypass surgery.

  $1.05 Million won on behalf of a Westchester County man who was negligently treated by his primary care physician, resulting in a fatal heart attack.

  $800,000 won on behalf of a Bronx man who sustained serious injuries as a result of his doctor's failure to diagnose a long standing and developing medical condition.

$675,000 won on behalf of a Suffolk County woman who sustained serious and ongoing medical procedures after her doctor failed to diagnose breast cancer.

Please keep in mind that prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.
