Our History

Our story began in August 1992, the first day of class for first year students at New York Law School. As fate would have it, two random strangers sat next to each other in an auditorium of 160 law students. The torts professor was the legendary Joseph Koffler, who had taught at New York Law School for more than 50 years using the Socratic method. Professor Koffler looked at the student roster and looked up and asked “will the law firm of Steiner and Fish give me the facts, reasoning, and holding of Brown v. Kendall?” As Norman and David stood and nervously delivered the answer as a team, the rest of the class was just happy it was not them on the hot seat. The bond was forged. Norman and David became friends and study partners, and remained a team from that day forward.


Throughout their careers they continued to collaborate on cases, problem solve, and develop trial tactics together. Each contributed to the other's victories and success, which only reinforced what Professor Koffler randomly stumbled upon 26 years earlier. When it comes to selecting a law firm, Steiner & Fish is the right choice.

The Glory of a Good Lawyer

Is to Win a Bad Trial.
