Christopher Dean leads the firm's trial division and is the senior trial attorney for the firm. He also graduated from St. John's University School of Law in 1991, after attending Ithaca College and Friends Academy. He and Joseph Dell have been united in their friendship and in their interest in protecting the rights of injured individuals since they first met almost 30 years ago.

Mr. Dean began his legal career in 1991 working for Langan & Levy in Manhattan, wherein his extensive trial work, early in his career, garnered him an excellent reputation in the courtroom. Since that time he has solidified his status as a formidable adversary in numerous facets of the negligence field, including Medical Malpractice, Labor Law, Premises and Motor Vehicle cases. Time and time again, Mr. Dean has obtained seven-figure verdicts and settlements for his clients.

Mr. Dean is admitted to practice in the State of New York (1992) as well the Eastern and Southern Districts of Federal Court (1994). Mr. Dean is also a member of the Board of Directors of the Nassau-Suffolk Trial Lawyers Association, the Trial Lawyers of America and the New York State Trial Lawyers Association.

Mr. Dean is the senior partner responsible for trying all types of negligence cases as well as heading up the firm's Medical Malpractice division. After almost 25 years of trial experience, Mr. Dean still maintains the utmost drive and zeal in representing each and every client of the firm. That inspiration and dedication comes, in part, from decades of working closely with his father and mentor, David J. Dean, on cases such as the Agent Orange Class Action Litigation and the 1993 World Trade Center case.
