September 14, 2018

BROOKLYN – Kostantinos Mallas, Partner, Georgaklis & Mallas PLLC, has been recognized by the New York Metro Super Lawyers list for the sixth year in a row. Acknowledged in the practice areas of Personal Injury — General: Plaintiff and Personal Injury — Medical Malpractice: Plaintiff, Mr. Mallas is among an exclusive elite of no more than 5% of other lawyers in New York State selected by Super Lawyers.
