Bronx Supreme Court is a bedrock institution in the New York legal community.  Generations of lawyers have walked the halls of this historic courthouse.  Sought after by plaintiff's personal injury attorneys, the Bronx has a unique place in the hearts and minds of both plaintiff and defense attorneys.  Here are 5 ways you can tell you are in Bronx Supreme Court. 
  1. Yankee Stadium - Walking up the steps to the courthouse, you see Yankee Stadium in the near distance. Depending on which courtroom you are in, you also see the historic stadium as you conference a matter or argue a motion. Yankee Stadium equals Bronx Supreme. 
  2. Feeling Lost - No matter how long you have been practicing and appearing in the Bronx, when you step out of the elevator, you have no clue where you are - if you need to turn left or right. Many of us have gone around in circles looking for courtrooms and still do!
  3. Judge Victor - Judge Victor is a long standing fixture in the Bronx. As a Judge sitting in the City Part and currently as a JHO in the Pre-Trial Conference Part. He is synonymous with Bronx Supreme. 
  4. Judge Greene - Like Judge Victor, Judge Greene is well known to all attorneys walking the halls of 851 Grand Concourse. He has sat on the bench for years and currently presides in the Med-Mal Part.
  5. Court Deli - Situated on Walton and West 161st Street, Court Deli is the traditional lunch "spot" for attorneys and Judges. On any given day, you can see attorneys commiserating with their colleagues or sitting with adversaries in an attempt to settle a matter.
