“At the suggestion of another lawyer I contacted Deborah Truhowsky immediately following the death of my mother, whose passing had been caused by negligence at her nursing home.
Deborah provided invaluable guidance from day one and her skilled and always responsive professional approach to our case resulted in a successful outcome.
Along our 2.5 year journey Deborah was always quick to respond, polite and highly professional in her dealings with us. We feel that we were very fortunate to have someone of Deborah’s caliber as our legal representative in this case. We would not hesitate to seek her assistance again in a similar situation and feel very comfortable in recommending her services.”-Don S., Westchester
We filed a lawsuit against a Suffolk County nursing home on behalf of the family of a woman in her 90s who fell and fractured her hip after 2 similar incidents at the same facility. She died approximately one month later as a result of complications from the fracture.
“A family member was placed in a nursing home, where she suffered from a lack of prompt medical attention and neglect, and subsequently passed away. I spoke to a few attorneys about concerns I had regarding what had transpired during my relative’s stay at the nursing home, but no one would get involved.
I was fortunate to meet Deborah Truhowsky at a time when I really needed assistance to address the inequities of the nursing home’s practices. She and her team reviewed the information we presented, found that we indeed had reason for concern, and took on our case.
Ms. Truhowsky was the consummate professional.
She advocated on our behalf by engaging experts to research my relative’s medical history during her stay at the facility, and held the nursing home accountable for discrepancies in their reporting of events and other negligent actions. Ms. Truhowsky took me through the different phases of the process, step-by-step, allaying any anxiety I might have had. I always felt that I was in good hands because when Ms. Truhowsky said she would do something, she always followed through.
In a situation where you can feel you are fighting an uphill battle for justice, it is comforting to be assured that someone with extraordinary expertise, professionalism, and compassion will be in your corner. I cannot thank Ms. Truhowsky enough for the diligence and integrity she brought to the case and extended to our family.” – Ellen J., Brooklyn
We filed an elder neglect case against a Brooklyn nursing home on behalf of the family of a woman in her 70s who developed such severe bed sores that she had to have her leg amputated above the knee. This case was successfully resolved before going to trial.
“We engaged Deborah Truhowsky as our attorney to sue a prestigious New York City hospital after a loved one in his late 80s developed four Stage-4 bedsores while at the hospital. (Stage-4 bedsores are the most serious.)
Through painstaking diligence, Ms. Truhowsky discovered that nursing notes had been altered and the New York State Department of Health was notified. Her investigation and New York State’s follow-up investigation concluded that four Stage-4 bedsores had developed under the hospital’s care, arising from their negligence, and that no follow-up treatment had been provided once the wounds were discovered.
New York State immediately ordered the hospital to provide a written detailed improvement plan to document the bedsores and to provide all necessary treatment.
Ultimately, we prevailed without going to trial and received a substantial settlement.
Ms. Truhowsky pursued the lawsuit with passion and persistence.
It is due to her outstanding sense of justice and protective instincts towards her clients that she gave the case her personal tireless attention. We are forever grateful.” – Courtney B., Manhattan
We took on a neglect and medical malpractice case against a well-regarded Manhattan hospital for a gentleman in his 80s who developed severe bed sores while hospitalized for an unrelated condition. The case was successfully resolved prior to a lawsuit being filed.
“My mother was placed in a nursing home, where, unfortunately, she suffered from neglect and abuse. I tried everything in my power to get help to her, including New York State, Ombudsman, and a few other aging agencies.
Ms. Truhowsky was on top of the situation from the start.
She knew exactly how to go in and handle this case, and kept me updated throughout. I was very happy with the overall case and outcome. Sadly, I wish my mother had experienced the same. I have and will recommend Ms. Truhowsky in the future.” – Karyn M., Long Island
We filed an elder neglect case for the daughter of a woman in her 80s who had multiple bed sores and suffered over 15 falls with serious fractures while a resident at a Long Island nursing home. The case was successfully resolved after depositions.

Deborah is not only a great lawyer, she was a great friend. Thank you so much and I know God sent me the right lady. Thank you so much for everything and tell Randi the same.” – Frank L.
“So glad we found Debra.“
“Debra and her staff have been over the top fantastic in handling the case related to my deceased mother. They showed so much empathy , compassion and understanding about where I was mentally after losing my mother. That was greatly appreciated. Throughout the whole process, Debra and her staff kept us informed about what was taking place, why it was taking place and preparing us for what came next. Debra and her entire staff were there anytime I had a question and were quick to provide me the answer. I feel like her associates Anita and Stacey are like family at this point. So glad that we chose the right attorney!”- Joanne
“Great Lawyer and Team”
“My lawyer and her team worked hard to resolve my case. They informed me and my brother as to how the case was developing. Their experts collected and examined documents, their lawyers prepared us for the deposition. The paralegal was always available for me and my brother the whole time. There wasn’t a time that they didn’t ask how me and my family and brother were doing, especially during this COVID 19 crisis. I could not be happier with the outcome of my case, but more importantly the concern for me, my brother and family. I would highly recommend the Law Firm of Deborah N F Truhowsky and her awesome team.” – Anonymous
“More than just great service”
“I have been dealing with the Law Firm or D.F. Truhowsky for quite some time now. I acquired their services after my parents passed away. I had more than a few legal issues that I needed help with in regards to their estate, medical etc. Deborah and her legal team have been by my side every step of the way. They have always made sure that I was up to date with the process, explained things thoroughly so I could understand and worked closely with me to get the best possible outcome for my case. I could not have picked a better team, they are very professional and thorough, yet they add a personal touch that makes them feel like family. I’m very pleased with this firm, this was a very sensitive time for myself and my family and Deborah handled it with grace, professionalism, and sensitivity. I couldn’t have made a better choice in representation.” – Wanda
