Today, if you live or work in New York City or the metro area, you hear alot about diversity in the workplace and how it is good for businesses. At Sackstein Sackstein & Lee, LLP, we take pride in our diversity. We offer legal services in a variety of languages, including English, Spanish, Korean, Chinese, Greek, Bengali, Urdu, Bangladeshi and Hindi. As our diverse staff members work side-by-side, you’ll see various ethnic groups and races, including African American, Asian, Hispanic and Caucasian.
The Advantages of Diversity in Business
Companies with diverse staff members are more innovative, productive, better at solving issues and can reach a wider client base. All of these factors are good for businesses.
According to The New York Times, studies showed that when a diverse group of people interacted with each other, their answers to analytical questions were more accurate than homogenous groups. In fact, diverse groups had a 58 percent greater accuracy.
Another study put people of different races in a group and had them solve murder mysteries. Again, the diverse group performed significantly better.
Quotes by Mark Sackstein and Eric Lee
“I believe our firm’s diversity is a great asset for clients who choose us to represent them in personal injury claims. They have a notable advantage when we seek to obtain fair and just case awards on their behalves.” Mark H. Sackstein
“Our firm has helped many people in the Korean community and other ethnic groups to overcome the challenges they face when litigating for deserved compensation. Our abilities to overcome language barriers and work together are invaluable for getting results.” Eric B.
Innovation and Production
Researchers compared banks with and without racial diversity. Studies showed that 177 U.S. banks with diversity had greater financial performance. Bank presidents emphasized innovation when the company was diverse.
In another study, Stanford University researchers had groups discuss social issues, such as child labor and the death penalty. The researchers wrote dissenting opinions and had both African American and Caucasian students deliver the opinion to the groups. Even though students delivered the same dissenting perspective, when an African American presented the perspective to a group of Caucasians, the opinion seemed more novel and led to broader consideration of alternatives.
Various studies concluded that people work harder in diverse environments both socially and cognitively. While they may feel challenged when working through barriers, their hard work leads to better outcomes.
Broader Customer Bases
Because our staff at Sackstein Sackstein & Lee, LLP speaks a variety of languages, we can reach a broader client base than firms where language is limited to English.

You hear about post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) that military service members experience from active duty. However, studies now show that many motor vehicle accident victims also suffer from PTSD.
According to the National Center for PTSD, research shows motor vehicle accidents are a common cause for traumatic stress, including:
- Major Depression
- Anxiety Disorders
What Is Your Emotional State? Are You Experiencing These Symptoms?
While many people experience PTSD symptoms right after the traumatic incident, others may not experience them until months or even years later. Symptoms often include:
- Reliving the event (same fears as during the event)
- Flashbacks (feeling like the event is happening again)
- Triggers (a sight, smell or sound that causes you to relive the event) Read More:
In any given year, approximately 1% of the US population will be injured in motor vehicle accidents — more than 3 million injuries annually.
Here are some facts taken from motor vehicle accident (MVA) studies regarding PTSD:
- 9% of motor vehicle accident (MVA) survivors develop PTSD
- An average of 60% of MIV survivors who seek mental-health treatment have PTSD
- Of those 60% seeking mental treatment, between 3% – 53% have major depression. Read More
Unfortunately, many people continue to experience symptoms for more than six months or a year before seeking mental treatment. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you seek damages to cover PTSD treatment as part of an accident settlement.
This is such a beautiful testimonial that I had to share it!
“Oh my, where do I start. I have had the extreme pleasure of knowing Rudolph F.X. Migliore(Rudy) since 1979. In the past 37 plus years whenever I called for legal advice Rudy has always been there with his unconditional kindness, advice and knowledge. I was, still am, and always will be a client of Rudolph F.X. Migliore. I was there from the beginning of his Law Practice, when it was just Migliore & Infranco. It gives me such pride to see how his Law Firm has grown through the years. Within these years, I’ve seen Rudy become a very caring husband, father, and grow his Law Firm with an extremely knowledgeable staff of Attorneys.
I am so proud of Rudy and how his Law Firm has grown and continues to grow. I feel like a very proud parent watching their child grow through the years.
In fact, every time I see Rudy in his commercial on news 12 no matter where I am; either at home or in a public place I yell with pride “that’s my attorney Rudy Migliore, I know him from way back when he started his Law Firm”. It puts a smile on my face every time I see it.
Rudy has always given my family and myself honesty, truthfulness, and trusting advice when needed. His staff and himself personally has handled many legal issues with positive outcomes for my family and myself. Rudy and his staff are very respectful, helpful, and courteous to everyone. They make you feel like family, and I am very proud to be a part of this “family”.
It is my pleasure to highly, and extremely recommend the Law Firm of Rudolph F.X. Migliore and his staff for any and all legal services and beyond. If you need help or advice for any legal matters at all this is the Law Firm to have on your side. You will not find another Law Firm with this amount of knowledge, wisdom, and integrity anywhere.

An Inside Tip to Resolving Your Personal Injury Case Quicker and Inexpensively
It’s called Alternative Dispute Resolutions (ADR), and we’d like our followers to know more about how “Arbitration” and “Mediation” (the two types of ADRs) can be better options, in particular cases, than bringing personal injury cases to trial.
Arbitration is an ADR to trial. When two parties at dispute cannot come close to an agreeable resolution, arbitration may present a better means of resolution as opposed to trial, and we’ll list exactly why.
“Binding” arbitration is when an unbiased third-party of authority meets with two at-dispute parties to come to a resolution outside of trial. The arbitrator acts somewhat like a judge and jury. They will listen to witness testimony, review evidence such as documents and photographs and make a final resolution. Since this type of arbitration is “binding”, the decision is final and both parties must abide by it. “Non-binding” arbitration does not require either side to abide to the arbitrator’s decision, but is moreover used as a guideline.
Mediation is another form of ADR. Mediation is a “non-binding” discussion wherein a mediator listens to each party’s position and makes recommendations as to how the case should be resolved. “Non-binding”, in other words, means that parties do not have to agree to the mediator’s recommendations. Mediation occurs mostly between two parties who understand that compromise is necessary to bring their case to a close. It’s the mediator’s job to help both parties come to an agreement, whereas in arbitration, the agreement is made by the arbitrator. A mediation is more of a negotiation whereas arbitration is more akin to a trial.
Our firm has deep roots in Long Island and our lawyers maintain close associations with people throughout Suffolk County. Through our two decades of practice here, we’ve developed a strong sense of community. In fact, many of our clients have become friends and acquaintances.
