Elmhurst, New York

Christopher M. Falconetti was admitted to the New York State Bar Association in 2002. He began his legal career as a law clerk in a workers' compensation firm while attending law school at Hofstra University School Law. Upon graduation and admittance to the New York State Bar, Christopher M. Falconetti has represented thousands of injured workers before the Workers' Compensation Board and Appellate Division, Third Department.

In 2011 Mr. Falconetti joined the firm of Bangel & Cohen thus creating Bangel, Cohen & Falconetti. From his first year of Law School Mr. Falconetti has dedicated his efforts to representing injured workers. With a family history rooted deeply in the union trades and civil service there is no surprise of the strong bond and mutual respect Mr. Falconetti shares with his clients. While overcoming challenges and obtaining unprecedented results are motivating factors, helping those that are injured and in need are what he finds most rewarding.

Now a partner in Bangel, Cohen & Falconetti, LLP, Mr. Falconetti continues vigorously fighting for the rights of his clients to recover benefits they are entitled to under the Workers' Compensation Law. In the past, Christopher M. Falconetti has been privileged to conduct classes and seminars for various local unions, health care professionals, and many others, providing pre-accident education and information that is absolutely essential to protect and educate workers, medical professionals, and union members. In 2016 he was selected as a Rising Star by Super Lawyers as well as being a member of the New York State Trial Lawyers Association, Queens County Bar Association and Injured Workers' Bar Association.
