There is a good reason for the success of The Wolk Law Firm. They serve a single purpose for which they have developed an enormous depth of expertise. The firm flies an Eclipse EA 500 jet which brings knowledge of state of the art technology and equipment into the forefront of every accident they investigate.

An airplane crash is an unspeakable tragedy. Every client they have had and those they currently represent will uniformly say they have never seen or imagined the intensity of effort and the expertise that is brought to bear by The Wolk Law Firm to make sure that they are given a fair hearing and maximum recovery.

When an airplane crash occurs, only time can help heal the pain caused by the tragedy. Air crash victims’ families and any survivors can find solace in determining the reason for the plane crash. They look for ways to prevent a similiar air tragedy from happening again. Identifying the truth and determining the responsibility behind air crashes, and raising public awareness about aviation safety issues, has been the driving force behind the aviation law practice of The Wolk Law Firm.

In order to achieve substantial settlements from airlines, aircraft manufacturers, and aviation insurers – all entities with vast corporate resources – a law firm must be willing to commit a comparable investment in time and money. The Wolk Law Firm is willing to make that commitment for its clients.

Over the past 40 years, The Wolk Law Firm has won hundreds of cases successfully for our clients, generating more than a billion dollars in verdicts and settlements in courtrooms all over America.

Here are some of our results:

1970 – 1989 | 1990 – 1999 | 2000 – 2004 | 2005 – 2009 | 2010 – 2011 | 2012 – 2015


The Wolk Law Firm has talented attorneys dedicated to the practice of air crash litigation for plaintiffs. We are experienced in aviation law and win huge verdicts and settlements for our clients while making a difference in the safety of the industry.
