Physicians, insurance carriers and claims representatives alike depend on Dominique Chin to expertly produce detailed suit evaluations, conduct skilled depositions and compile comprehensive medical and legal research, resulting in continued successes for each of her clients.
Diligent and thorough, she has spent years working her cases from inception to completion, allowing her to seamlessly and confidently guide medical specialists, medical facilities and the nursing homes she represents through each step of the litigation process.
Through Dominique’s prior work interning for Nassau County Supreme Court Justice, the Honorable R. Bruce Cozzens, Jr., and former work in plaintiff’s employment law, she developed a deep understanding of the practice of civil litigation. She then began her career at Shaub, Ahmuty, Citrin & Spratt in 2016 as an intern, where she developed extensive experience in the medical malpractice field allowing her to provide detailed and effective legal representation for every medical professional she represents.
Dominique prides herself on her strong ability to manage and work up her cases to create clear, effective defense strategies. She also meticulously prepares for each aspect of the legal process, whether it be court appearances, depositions, motions or oral arguments.
Dominique was successful in orally arguing the dismissal of a case, and contributed to the motion papers that resulted dismissal in a high-exposure federal §1983 action. In furtherance of developing her legal skills, Dominique has participated as a judge in a medical malpractice moot court competition in conjunction with Hofstra University and Northwell Health, and has taught law students about conducting depositions as part of a course taught at Hofstra University Law School by Nassau County, Supreme Court Justice R. Bruce Cozzens. Dominique’s strong work ethic and intense determination has led to victorious outcomes for her clients including achieving a number of discontinuances.
