Joseph Farella is a litigator and Co-Founding Partner at Farella Mascolo PLLC. He has been recognized by his peers by being selected to “Super Lawyers” and “Rising Stars” for each of the past five years.

With over 14 years of experience, his practice is devoted to representing victims of serious accidents in all five boroughs of New York City and surrounding areas. Mr. Farella has experience handling various types of personal injury cases ranging from construction accident cases, motor vehicle and trucking accident cases and premises liability cases.

Prior to founding Farella Mascolo, Mr. Farella was a sole practitioner where he gained valuable experience handling a wide variety of cases by representing both plaintiffs and defendants. Mr. Farella’s experience as a sole practitioner provides him with a special understanding as to how all aspects of litigation are handled, which in turn helps facilitate favorable results for the firm’s clients.

Born the son of immigrants, Mr. Farella comes from a blue-collar upbringing. From the time he was old enough to swing a hammer, he worked with his father and grandfather performing physical and exhausting construction work, which is where he learned the value of hard work, dedication and most importantly sacrifice. It is this upbringing that keeps Mr. Farella deeply rooted in his community and dedicated to serving its members.

Mr. Farella is proud to consider himself a strong supporter of building trade construction unions across the City. He has a special attachment to Local 79, the Laborer’s Union, where his father serves as a Shop Steward and Master Organizer.
