I moved to Harlem!

70 Comments

I recently moved my office from downtown to Harlem. Haicken Law PLLC is now located at 1867-1871 Amsterdam Avenue, Suite #1, New York, NY 10031, between 152nd and 153rd.

My new office is in a complex called “The Harlem Collective.” It houses many different business including established law firms, web designers, and all sorts of tech start-ups.

I am thrilled with the new location. I chose it because I have several clients from that neighborhood, it is close to my apartment on the Upper West Side, and it is a vibrant, growing, multicultural community. If you go into any shop or restaurant, you will hear most people speaking Spanish. This is perfect for me as I speak Spanish fluently and about half of my clients are native Spanish speakers.

Through my involvement with some of the local churches, I have already met two new personal injury clients – Harlem residents who were injured in accidents, and a Harlem bodega owner who was asked me to help him obtain a license to sell beer.

I look forward to spending more time in my new neighborhood, and getting to know my new neighbors. I even bought myself a new domain name – harlemabogado.com.

If you are ever up in the area, and would like to drop by, give me a call and I’ll take you to get the best Dominican food outside of Santo Domingo.

About Matthew Haicken

I have been practicing personal injury and insurance law since my graduation from law school in 2007. In addition to years as a practicing lawyer, I also spent three years working at a large insurance company where I worked with excellent lawyers from around the country. This experience has proven invaluable. I gained insight into how insurance companies evaluate claims, and I learned the tactics they employ to fight personal injury lawsuits. I enjoy helping people through difficult situations and making a positive impact on the lives of my clients. When not practicing law, I am actively involved in NYSTLA, the New York State Trial Lawyers Association. We are a group that lobbies on behalf of injury victims. I believe the courthouse doors should be open to everyone, regardless of his or her immigration status, or financial situation. I am committed to fighting for a strong civil justice system that enables people who have been harmed to hold wrongdoers accountable.
