Jared S. Behr


Jared began his legal career at the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office where he gained significant trial experience. While at the District Attorney’s Office, Jared successfully prosecuted several cases, most notably gaining a conviction in an animal cruelty case. Jared never lost a trial at the DA’s office.

Prior to joining SSKB, Jared practiced for several years at a defense firm and also served as a Senior Trial Attorney for one of the largest insurance companies in the country. He successfully tried numerous cases throughout the New York Metro area while also participating in arbitrations and mediations, including wrongful death actions. This experience provided Jared with great insight into how insurance companies defend lawsuits and try to limit compensation to injured parties.

Jared is excited to be a part of the SSKB team and advocate for those who have suffered serious injuries as a result of someone else’s negligence. His trial experience, both in criminal and personal injury cases, makes him a fierce, prepared advocate for his clients. Jared knows what insurance companies consider when evaluating cases and will work tirelessly to secure appropriate compensation for the people he represents.

Outside of the firm, Jared is an active member of the Suffolk County Bar Association, Nassau County Bar Association, and New York State Bar Association. He has also written an article on the biomechanical defense for the Suffolk County Bar Association’s legal publication, The Legal Brief.

Jared graduated with his Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from New York University and obtained his Juris Doctor from Touro College Jacob D. Fuschberg Law Center in 2009, where he was a member of the Moot Court Honor Society and graduated cum laude. He was admitted to the Bar in 2010 and is licensed to practice law in New York. Jared proudly joined the SSKB team in November 2021.

Jared is an avid New York Rangers fan and resides in Plainview, New York with his wife and two young children.
