Proner & Proner has been representing NY motorcycle accident victims for over 50 years. Founded by Mitchell Proner’s father, A. Stanley Proner, our law firm has achieved endless successful verdicts and amazing settlement amounts. A. Stanley Proner’s skill, knowledge, and expertise were passed down to his son, Mitchell Proner, who now runs the law firm and continues to win court battles for his New York motorcycle accident clients.
A. Stanley Proner also passed on his love of motorcycles to his son: Mitchell is an active rider. Mitchell was also himself in an New York City motorcycle accident and broke his wrist, ankle, and several bones in his back in 1990. With the exception of the time it took Mitchell to recover from his injuries, he never stopped riding. He currently owns two Harley Davidson motorcycles: a 2018 road glide and a 1993 Heritage that he has logged over 120,000 miles riding on.
Better yet, Mitchell Proner has extremely impressive credentials that make him incredibly trustworthy. He is the past president of the New York State Academy of Trial Lawyers, elected director and lifetime member of the New York State Trial Association, a lifetime member of a Multimillion Dollar Advocates Forum, rated in the top 100 trial lawyers by the American Trial Lawyers Association, and he has been given the highest ratings in ethics and skill in advocacy by Martindale-Hubbell (an information services company for attorneys that was founded in 1868). Mitchell can also speak three languages fluently (English, Italian, and Spanish) to help a wider variety of clients.

Proner & Proner also offers a wide range of informational blogs and pages via this website to showcase just how much they know as they look to educate clients and visitors. They go into great detail on all subject matter regarding their practice areas, including NYC motorcycle accident claims. For example, did you know that insurance companies determine who is more at fault in a left-turn accident between a motorcycle and another vehicle based on the point of contact, which has been shown to ignore physics laws and to not be very accurate? Some motorcycle accident victims may not even realize that they should hire a motorcycle collision expert to fully diagram and map out the accident for proof of liability.
Mitchell Proner is an avid motorcyclist and participant in the motorcycle community. In 1990, Mitchell was riding his ’88 Sportster when he got hit by a taxi that ran a red light. In the accident, Mitchell broke his back and multiple bones in other parts of his body. After a long recovery time and many surgeries, Mitchell got back to riding. Today, he has ridden his 1993 Harley Davidson Heritage Softail over 120,000 miles and continues to ride and interact with others with the same love for motorcycles as him. You can be assured that Mitchell Proner will connect with you on a personal level and have an even greater desire to fight for your rights.
