Being involved in an accident can turn your life upside down. It can prevent you from working, paying your bills, or living a normal life. At Feldman, Kleidman, Coffey & Sappe LLP, our goal, simply stated, is to help you achieve the compensation you deserve and to guide you and your family through a difficult time. We don’t get paid unless you win!

Selecting the right personal injury attorney could be the most important financial decision of your life. You need an attorney who is well experienced in personal injury litigation. Someone who is familiar with the courtroom, and someone who other attorneys respect and fear. At Feldman, Kleidman, Coffey & Sappe LLP, we’re experienced negotiators with a proven track record of getting our clients what they deserve for their injuries – and the insurance companies know it.

For over 35 years FKC&S has been successfully trying cases at all levels of state and federal courts throughout the Hudson Valley and the Capital District. Jeff Feldman has been selected by his peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America© 2021 in the area of Medical Malpractice Law – Defendants and Personal Injury Litigation – Defendants, an honor he has received every year since 2008.

Best Lawyers and U.S. News & World Reports ranked nearly 13,000 firms in 122 practice areas and Feldman, Kleidman, Coffey & Sappe LLP was selected as a Best Law Firm for the twelfth year in a row. We were the only litigation firm between Albany and Westchester so honored.

We are proud of the reputation we have established since our founding in 1986, in New York. Although most of our cases are settled without ever going to trial, we prepare each case as if it will be tried. Our thorough preparation and attention to the smallest detail demonstrate to our adversaries that we are ready, willing and able to try our case. As a result, our cases tend to settle, which is why we believe that most personal injury cases are won or lost during the planning stage.

As you will see, it all starts on day one. You will meet with an attorney, not a staff member, who will take the time to dig into every nuance of your case, to consider every potential angle, and to investigate all the possibilities. Hidden deep in the details is the information we will need to secure the best possible outcome for you.

  • I searched and found FKC&S Law Firm on the internet after I was involved in an auto accident. I met with Steven Cohen and he took my case after listening to my incident. I found Steven Cohen assertive, responsive and informative. My hats off to Steven Cohen and his administrative staff for their professionalism and dedication in addressing all the issues and matters in a timely fashion throughout my case . Steven Cohen also made the process look easy and seamless. There is no money that can cure all the trauma, pain and suffering from the accident but Steven Cohen was able to get me a fair settlement. Definitely a lawyer to have on your side. Highly recommended.

    Steve Cohen is a highly experienced and skilled lawyer. He came to our home initially, to discuss the case, after being recommended to me by 2 other lawyers who are no longer in practice. He was with us every step of the way. When we called him at the firm, he responded immediately most of the the time, and if he was unavaliable always called us back promptly. Most unusual when dealing with any lawyer. He knows his business, is very sharp dealing with the opposing counsel, and won't let his client be bullied or tricked. He got us a fair settlement without us even having to go to trial. Highly recommended.

    I suffered an injury that I believed was due to negligence and decided to hire an attorney to help me understand if I had a case. I initially reached out to firm that was no longer taking injury cases. However, they highly recommended Steve Cohen and the firm of Feldman Kleidman Coffey & Sappe LLP. Upon meeting with Steve for the first time, I knew right away that my case was in good hands. Steve is a true professional, he outlined the process in detail, he was also compassionate to my pain and he assured me that my injury was due to negligence and we should move forward with a claim. After our first meeting, I was kept up to date, my phone calls were returned immediately, and I was advised in how to handle each step of the process and not to hesitate to ask any questions along the way. Steve and his staff made me feel that I was important and they did an amazing job. We didn’t have to go to trial and were able to reach a settlement that I believe was fair thanks to Steve’s experience with injury cases. I will always be grateful to Steve for helping me and my family get through a tough experience in my life. If you find yourself in a similar situation, Steve Cohen is your lawyer. I can’t recommend him enough. Thank you, Mr. Cohen!

  • My attorney Steve Cohen, Esq. On my initial contact with him, immediately evaluated my case, saw that I was hurt due to the negligence of the defendant.He very quickly was able to get me a very fair settlement. (Sometimes these cases drag on for years).I can't say enough about the very proactive attention Mr. Cohen provided me with. Plus he was very kind, and kept me informed during the entire process. Which I was very pleased with.This is a five star firm, hopefully I will never need Mr. Cohen's help in the future but I recommend his services very highly.He is a fantastic litigator, one I was pleased to work with. You will be too. Their firm is the best of the best in Dutchess County.You can not go wrong with this firm!Many thanks to Mr. Cohen for his experise in handling my case so well. I am forever grateful.

    Steve Cohen was an outstanding attorney in handling my personal injury case. He always kept me informed on a regular basis; immediately returned my phone calls; and was professional in all his dealings with me and on my behalf. Steve was the perfect combination of a compassionate and dedicated client advocate. He prepared me extremely well for all proceedings and always made sure I knew what to expect. Although Steve cannot take away your pain and suffering, he ensures you are well compensated for it. I highly recommend Steve Cohen.

  • Working with Feldman, Kleidman, Coffey and Sappe was a great experience. Steve Cohen worked with Bob Sappe to get us the settlement we deserved. My husband and I were kept informed on a regular basis as to what was going on and what next steps would be. The entire process was well organized. Questions were answered within 24 hours of being asked. Office staff is a pleasure to work with also.

    Steve Cohen is without a doubt the most responsive and professional lawyer I have ever had the pleasure to work with. From the very moment he took my case Steve has always been straight to the point, responsive and extremely efficient. I can honestly say that in my past experiences dealing with other law firms and certain attorneys it can get a bit uneasy and frustrating. I can honestly say that all of my interactions with Steve were nothing but positive and reassuring. The results speak for themselves. I am completely satisfied beyond my expectations. I will recommend this Law firm to all my friends and family. Thanks again Steve.

    Having experienced an unexpected, unnecessary and painful injury I reached out for a recommendation when Feldman, Kleidman, Coffey & Sappe LLP was suggested. They readily responded and Steve Cohen came to our home to meet me, hear my concerns and explain the legal procedures. He was compassionate, reassuring and forthright. Steve was there from the start informing me while respecting my concerns and wishes. It was a long haul from surgery, through PT, through depositions and a doctor's visit for their side. My best interests were paramount as he worked to reach a realistic settlement. Steve was available every step of the way with the law firm behind him. It was a fortunate and wise decision to select Feldman, Kleidman, Coffey & Sappe LLP. Surely you will feel equally secure with them as your representation.

  • I was extremely impressed with my experience with this law firm and particularly our lawyer, Steve Cohen. Throughout the entire process he maintained clear communication, was extremely client centered and well prepared to work with my minor daughter. Mr. Cohen always put my mind at ease, providing the much needed support and guidance during one of the most challenging events of our life. I would highly recommend this law firm to anyone who is seeking counsel.

    My lawyer was Steven Cohen and he was just heaven sent! He helped me understand everything as this was my first time in a lawsuit. He did everything for me and made sure I had nothing to worry about. Mr. Cohen checked up after all my appointments as well and made himself available to me at whatever time. I appreciate him and everyone else at this firm.

    I made a consultation appointment regarding a motorcycle accident. The office staff were pleasant and polite, the appointment started on time, no waiting. Steven Cohen demonstrated a high level expertise in the area of my lawsuit. He explained the process and what I could expect, citing similar outcomes from other lawsuits. I appreciated the upfront transparency he provided as I was able to have reasonable expectations from the beginning. He was able to answer all questions I had without delay. I retained the firm’s services. After I provided the required paperwork and concluded my Medical treatment, Steven reviewed the case with me again. He was able to settle with the insurance company within a day or two, for more than I expected without having to go to court! Throughout the process Steven was always responsive to emails and calls, usually getting back to me within a few hours. I never felt like my case wasn’t a priority or was left with questions I couldn’t get answered promptly. I appreciate his professionalism and I will not hesitate to recommend his services to anyone.

  • I have worked with this law firm in the past and when I was injured in an MVA in September, I knew immediately who I was going to call. Steve's services were top notch, professional and expedient. He worked hard to get me the settlement he felt I deserved. He walked me through the whole process so I had a complete understanding of What to expect. Steve was able to recover more than I had anticipated so, this made me very happy. I hope not to ever need their services again, but if I did, FKC&S would be the first firm I would call.

    I was researching law firms in NY and ended up with a lawyer in NYC, but something didn’t feel right. Then I heard an ad for FKC&S on the radio and called. The rest is history. Steven Cohen was incredibly informative, assertive, and determined when it came to helping me. I truly don’t believe anyone else could have gotten me what he did or helped me the way he has. Steven made this process easy as could be for me and worked hard to get me what I deserve. I’d give 10 stars if I could.

Most of all, he was an effective advocate and negotiator, getting me a great outcome. My case was complex (my injuries weren't typical). I am very glad that I retained him to represent me. -Michelle

    I am a proud parent of a twelve year old non verbal autistic boy. In October 2017 my son sustained a horrific broken arm injury at the hands of his one to one aide at The Center for Spectrum Services in Kingston Ny a special needs school for Autism he was attending. I retained Feldman, Kleidman, Coffey & Sappe to protect his rights and get him compensation for his injury and for what he has endured. Steve Cohen obtained a six figure pre trial settlement for my son . I cannot speak highly enough for the level of legal services and representation he has received from Steve Cohen. Throughout the entire case we were in constant communication at times seven days a week and all hours of the day and night. Steve and Mr. Sappe both had empathy and compassion for what my son has endured because of his injury and how that injury has effected him,while offering a very very angry parent reassurance. The Law firm is excellent in every way from the attorneys I have worked with including the office staff. If you need an attorney I highly recommend them. A heartfelt thank you.
