Betsy N. Abraham, Esq.
Personal Injury Lawyer
I graduated from the University of Albany in Albany, NY and then began my pursuit of a career in law at Albany Law School. I now devote most of my practice to assisting plaintiffs in bringing claims and lawsuits for personal injury or property damage resulting in automobile accidents, injuries suffered on property, and other accidents. I am involved in all phases of litigation, from discovery to arbitration, mediation and trial. I also have an active appellate practice. I currently live in the Town of Wallkill.

I attended SUNY Albany and graduated, cum laude, with my Bachelors of Arts in Political Science. ,, I obtained my Juris Doctorate from Albany Law School.
I grew up in Queens, New York and at an early age was encouraged to volunteer in my community. I spent much of my middle school and high school years volunteering in assisted living facilities, nursing homes, and hospitals. I eventually became a community liaison with my local Assemblyman’s office, aiding constituents with various problems and issues. The experience of helping others has always been rewarding and gratifying.
I love meeting different people, hearing their stories and, most importantly, using my knowledge and expertise for the good of helping others.
I became a lawyer to continue my childhood passion of helping others. As an attorney, I get the benefit of knowing that I am helping and advocating for people who are victims of accidents and negligent conduct. I take great pride in knowing that I can help someone in, what may be, one of the worst situations of their life.
I have had the privilege of practicing law in the Hudson Valley for almost fifteen years. Through the course of that time, I have exclusively handled personal injury cases.
I take pride in my belief that I don’t work on a case, I work for an individual. Each client is important to me and I do my best to build an understanding of who they are and who they were before tragedy struck. I work zealously for each of these clients. I understand the nuances of their individual cases and work in a way that is specific to their case. I don’t believe in a “one size fits all” approach to life or representation of the clients that I have the privilege of assisting.
I am a first generation American - the daughter of immigrants who came to America and worked to build better lives for themselves and their family. Their hard work and diligence showed me that excellence is always something to work towards. The work ethic that they instilled in me and showed me through my formative years has been invaluable. I am not only encouraged to do my best for each of my clients I work hard for it. I do the research, I put in the time, I stay late, I rise early – this is the only practice I know when striving for excellence.
