Ms. Zefi was selected to the 2021, 2022, and 2023 Super Lawyers New York City Metro Area Rising Stars list.  Each year, no more than 2.5% of lawyers in the state are selected to receive this honor.  


  • Kaffash v. Village of Great Neck Estates- Plaintiff claimed to have been struck by a snow plow operator employed by the municipal defendant who allegedly reversed into her.  Summary judgment was denied by the lower court.  Ms. Zefi appeared before the Appellate Division to successfully argue on appeal that the operator exercised proper caution and did not act with reckless disregard for the safety of others.  Consequently, the lower court decision was reversed and summary judgment was granted on appeal.
