Brian Mittman, the Managing Partner and Owner at Markhoff & Mittman, P.C., embodies the spirit of "An Unexpected Legal Experience" in both his personal and professional life. With unwavering dedication, Brian tirelessly advocates for the rights of injured and disabled individuals in New York. Since 1995, he has provided exceptional representation before the New York State Workers' Compensation Board, the Social Security Administration, and New York's Supreme Court.
Under Brian's astute leadership, Markhoff & Mittman | The Disability Guys has flourished, serving thousands of injured and disabled workers, and expanding its reach across the state with offices in White Plains, Long Island, New York City, Brooklyn, Yonkers, Goshen, and Newburgh. Over the years, Brian has earned numerous accolades and distinctions. Notably, he was recently honored as one of the nation's "Top Injured Workers' Attorneys" by the Workers' Injury Law & Advocacy Group, a respected non-profit organization devoted to advocating for injured workers and their families. In 2006, Brian was recognized as the "Attorney of the Year" by the Institute for Jewish Humanities.
As an active contributor to the legal community, Brian currently serves on the Board of Directors for the New York Workers' Compensation Alliance and the Nationwide Workers Injury Law & Advocacy Group (WILG). He is a valued member of multiple esteemed Bar Associations, including the Westchester County Bar Association, New York County Lawyers' Association, Bronx County Bar Association, Brooklyn Bar Association, Nassau County Bar Association, and the National Organization of Social Security Claimants' Representatives.
Brian's dedication to giving back is evident through his active involvement in various charitable endeavors. He proudly serves as the President of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire Scholarship Memorial, which provides scholarships to children who have lost parents or whose parents have suffered permanent injuries on the job. Brian also sits on the Board of Directors for the NY Hudson Valley Tourette Association, Pediatric Cancer Foundation, and Lifting Up Westchester, where he annually closes the office for a summer workday to organize a children's carnival for less fortunate and homeless neighbors.
Brian's bond with New York runs deep, having chosen the state as his home after completing his studies at The University of Rochester (Political Science - Cum Laude) and Brooklyn Law School. He married his college sweetheart, Stefanie, and takes immense pride in being the loving father of four wonderful children—Noah, Zoe, Sophie, and Josh—and the caretaker of two joyful dogs, Stella and Sadie. When he is not advocating for injured and disabled workers, Brian enjoys staying active through workouts, reading, taking leisurely walks with his dogs, and indulging his passion for ice hockey.
