Robert Bashner has been in the personal injury field since graduating Brooklyn Law School in 1987. Early in his career, he worked at a volume-oriented firm and gained valuable experience battling with defense lawyers on behalf of his injured clients. The pace was frantic and he enjoyed the challenge.
With much experience under his belt, Robert moved on to a smaller firm where he could practice with a more personal touch. Over time he rose to managing attorney and supervised office staff and junior attorneys. Many lawyers working under Robert have gone onto prosperous careers in the personal injury field. When they see him in court today, they often thank him for patiently training them and teaching them his diligent and aggressive approach to enforcing the rights of victims.
Upon building up a large base of satisfied clients and referrals from them and other attorneys, Robert joined Neal Goldstein to become a partner at Goldstein and Bashner. Since 1999, he has fought side by side with Neal on behalf of victims who sustained personal injuries, specializing in motor vehicle accidents, drunken driving cases, construction accidents and railroad injuries.
Robert and the firm support charitable causes for the environment, fighting for the rights of the disabled and helping Latinos and immigrant workers who become injured at work.
Robert lives on Long Island with his wife and daughter. In his spare time he enjoys boating, skiing, playing volleyball, golfing and swimming.
