While a Supreme Court Justice, he presided over a multitude of settlements involving personal injury, medical/dental malpractice, nursing home, labor law, business and real estate matters as well as an extensive variety of tort cases.
Prior to his appointment to the bench, Justice Kalish served in various capacities with the New York Law City Corporation Counsel’s office.
