My grandfather, Nathaniel Fensterstock (1916-1988), a former Assistant Attorney General for the State of New York, once told my father, “simplicity in litigation is good, brevity is rewarded, but lack of thoroughness is usually punished.”
My father, Blair C. Fensterstock (1950-2017), a Columbia Law School graduate, Harlan Fiske Stone Scholar, and a Top 100 Business Litigator, passed this mantra down to me, Evan S. Fensterstock, a New York Super Lawyers Rising Star litigator by blood and trade for the last five consecutive years.
When my father fell ill to pancreatic cancer in 2015, I left my prestigious position at a notable big law firm in New York City to help him service his clients and, ultimately, close his law firm’s doors with dignity. When he passed away at the end of 2017, I endeavored to evolve our family’s legacy of excellent service and attention to detail, and formed Fensterstock, P.C., a new law firm that bridges the tried and true seeds of wisdom that can only come from a legacy of legal excellence with new and inventive ways to staff our cases, engage with our clients, and successfully litigate cases.
At Fensterstock, P.C. our expertise runs deep. We combine brevity with contentiousness. We are thorough, and we play to win.
