Sanford S. Nagrotsky


Sanford S. Nagrotsky, Esq. is a Partner at Pegalis Law Group, LLC in Lake Success, New York. He has obtained millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts on behalf of clients for more than 30 years. Mr. Nagrotsky’s desire to obtain justice for victims of preventable medical errors is what fuels his passion and dedication to zealously represent his clients. Mr. Nagrotsky and Firm founder, Steven Pegalis, obtained a settlement of $10 million for a NYC client in a complex spinal surgery case. His dedication and expertise have led the Pegalis Law Group to obtain compensation for many clients, whose cases were previously rejected by other prominent law firms.

Mr. Nagrotsky has instituted and maintains a unique approach to client service, rarely seen today. He speaks directly with prospective clients who call, seeking legal advice to learn if they have a potential medical negligence case.

Mr. Nagrotsky utilizes his extensive knowledge and medical research skills, and immediate access to renowned medical experts to thoroughly analyze critical issues for clients and potential clients.

He has been named to the highly regarded list The Best Lawyers in America© every year since 2014, to which less than 5% of practicing attorneys in the U.S. are recognized. He has been involved in the local political process, managing two successful judicial campaigns resulting in the appointment of Nassau County Supreme Court Justices. He has also been asked to assist in fundraising campaigns for other candidates seeking judicial office. Sanford Nagrotsky was an awardee of the “Kings of Long Island” event by Schneps Community News Group, where he received the “Dynamic Duo” award, alongside Pegalis Law Group Partner, James B. Baydar, Esq. In 2020, Mr. Nagrotsky was named to the New York Metro Super Lawyers® list. No more than five percent of attorneys in New York are recognized.

Mr. Nagrotsky lives on Long Island with his wife, Andrea, a court reporter in the Nassau County Supreme Court. They have two daughters, both who are practicing attorneys.
