Mehmet has been practicing civil litigation, either on the defense side or the plaintiff's side of personal injury law, for nearly fifteen years. After leaving the Nassau County District Attorney's Office where he prosecuted the County's major gun and gang crimes for approximately four years, Mehmet transititioned into civil practice. Over the course of his career in civil litigation, he has worked as a defense attorney representing the insurance companies as well as a plaintiff's attorney representing injured individuals. Having experienced both sides of the personal injury world, he has a unique insight on how to efficiently and effectively litigate the firm's personal injury cases. Mehmet has taken cases to favorable verdicts in some of the toughest jurisdictions in the boroughs of New York City. He has succesfully written and argued for summary judgment relief for clients throughout his career. He joins Chopra and Nocerino with a long history of fighting for his clients and will continue to do the same for the firm's clients in the areas of construction accidents/New York State labor law, premises liability, car accident, dog bite cases, and general negligence cases - all of which he has extensive experience litigating.
