Of Counsel

Phone +1-516-744-1880


Charles Martin Arnold has been a practicing personal injury attorney in New York City for over 23 years. He has successfully handled thousands of cases involving all types of injury issues. Persistent and respected, he has served numerous clients who each sustained life-altering injuries and losses. He uses his litigation experience to guide them through the challenging process of obtaining the just compensation they are entitled to.

Through his caring approach, Charles (known as “Marty” among friends and some colleagues) instills in his clients a feeling of satisfaction and well-being. He ensures every client is heard, understood, respected and effectively represented. His drive and compassion for injury victims comes from first-hand experience of severe injury trauma and recovery after suffering serious injuries in an automobile accident as a teenager.

Charles’ advocacy and success speak quite loudly. He has achieved multiple multi-million dollar settlements and verdicts on behalf of his clients throughout his career.  In addition, Charles was actively involved in successfully resolving two separate multi-million dollar claims stemming from the 51st Street crane collapse catastrophe in 2008, the worst construction accident in New York City’s recent history.
