Since our formation in 1991, ICRH has been one of the leading litigation firms in New York State, with more than 150 years of combined courtroom experience.

Insurance fraud costs Americans an estimated $150 billion annually, an average of nearly $1,000 per family in higher insurance premiums and higher prices for consumer goods.
