Roger did a terrific job and I was very pleased. He explained things so that I always understood where we were going and what we were doing. I was particularly impressed with his personality - he was always upbeat - and with his straightforward and honest dealings. I like people who deal with me in truth and honesty, and he certainly did. I have recommended him to others over and over and over again.
Mr. Jim Bass
Roger really took the time to listen to us. He was compassionate and caring and truly understood what we were going through as a result of my injury. He made the process as easy as possible for us. We are very grateful that we had the opportunity to be represented by him. We could not have been in better hands.
Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Martinez
Roger demonstrated exceptional professionalism in having the courage to take on my case and go up against a major industry. I had been turned down by several other attorneys. The verdict in the case changed the guidelines for packaging the materials that exploded and injured me. Roger was willing to perform the necessary investigation and the intense amount of work required. He never lost faith and pursued my case to positive outcome. Although I had received countless recommendations for attorneys from friends and acquaintances, when I met Roger, I knew that I had come to the right person.
I would like to thank attorney Mark Edelstein for bringing me out of the forest; I was injured far worse than I imagined. Mark has an uncanny ability to help those who need it most. I had a difficult case, but he hung in there for me. He is an inspiration."
Thanks to attorneys Jennifer Kuklin and Mark Edelstein I am able to pay off my debts and begin to rehabilitate my career as a writer. They enabled me to get back on my feet without having to be on my feet.
I am so grateful that I had Attorney Mark Edelstein and his team represent me in my Workers’ Compensation case. They treated me in a kind and caring manner, and worked very hard to ensure I received quality medical treatment and other benefits. They occupy a warm spot in my heart.

I called my girlfriend who is an attorney, and told her that I needed a referral to an excellent attorney. She immediately referred us to Howard. He completely understood our situation. He was personable, supportive and compassionate the entire time. We were also amazed at his ability to obtain medical information through his network of contact and abundant resources. My whole family thinks he's wonderful and brilliant. Everybody at the firm was easy to deal with. They were all understanding in terms of our needs, and took time to explain each step of the process. I would recommend Howard and the firm to other people in a heartbeat.
Howard Krepack is a superlative lawyer. His integrity, professionalism and strategic acumen are immediately obvious. But, equally important are his down-to-earth manner and ability to make highly realistic analyses. We are privileged to have him as our attorney and highly recommend his services.
Dr. Harvey Karp and Ms. Nina Montee-Karp
The service was great. They are prompt, courteous, and do a tremendous amount of research. By the time our case was finished, Howard knew just as much about legs and ankles as some of the doctors out there. The firm believed in our case, and was in our corner for us the whole way. I have already recommended them to a colleague.
Howard is an extraordinary attorney. He was helpful and supportive, and helped me through the whole case. You could tell he was personally involved. Liz, his assistant, was also very helpful, and helped to answer my questions if Howard wasn't in the office. They both explained things in detail and always let me know what was happening with the case, and what the plans were. I trust Howard. I would highly recommend him.
It was the first time I'd ever been involved in a lawsuit, and I didn't know what to do. Howard explained everything to me -- not like a lawyer, but like a family member. When he was in court for us, he called me everyday to tell me what was happening. He's like a doctor. He knows everything about medicine. I've seen courtrooms in the movies, but this courtroom was reality, and it was very different from what you see on TV. Howard spoke softly and was very polite. In fact, when the trial was over, several people on the jury came up to him and asked him for his card. I tell everyone in my community to call him. He really cares about you. He still calls me to see how I am doing.
It was all handled very professionally, with smooth co-ordination. Howard's rapport and understanding with both my wife and me made us feel like family. His best attributes are that he is very knowledgeable and very caring. People have a negative image of attorneys. Howard was 100% different. I have recommended the firm to others and I always will.
Mr. Jeffrey Witherill
A friend referred me to Sherry Grant, a partner in the Workers Comp department. She took the case, and also referred me to Howard because there was a personal injury aspect. I left my first meeting with him with trust and faith that he could get the job done. He was always thinking one step ahead of everyone else, and had his hands around all of the technical details. He treated me with the utmost respect.
There are some types of people who are unique in this world and Howard is one of them.
Ms. Joyce Stewart
Howard was like a dear friend. From the moment we met him, we were totally at ease. His honesty, good-heartedness and genuinely caring demeanor were immediately obvious. He and his staff will always hold a special place in our hearts for the sensitive way in which they took care of our family's needs. Our well-being was as important to them as getting the job done. The entire experience was 100 percent positive and the end result exceeded our expectations.”
Ms. Lorin Taylor
Howard did a fabulous job. He answered all my questions and was always there for me when I needed help. Since I was unable to walk due to my accident, he went out of his way to come to my home. He and his secretary, Liz, were always pleasant and courteous, returned phone calls immediately and followed through without fail to accomplish our objective. I would definitely recommend Howard to anyone.
Ms. Ruth Feld
Howard made the logistics of a long-distance case simple. I live in the Boston area and had a medical malpractice case in Los Angeles. A Massachusetts law firm recommended Howard based on good feedback from previous referrals. I met him while on a business trip to Los Angeles and was immediately impressed with his professionalism. He and his associate Gary Stern thoroughly understood the issues of my case and gave me the confidence to proceed. They maintained regular communication by email and phone so I always knew where I stood. Whenever I called with a question, they responded immediately. When I had to fly out for depositions, they arranged for them to be held in their office and referred me to a hotel virtually across the street. I am very pleased with the outcome of the case. I have already recommended Howard to a friend and would definitely recommend him to others.
Mr. David Karp
This was the first lawsuit I've been involved in, so I wasn't sure what to expect. Howard described the process, and he and the firm kept me apprised every step of the way. If I called to ask questions, someone was always available to help. My case was settled out of court, and I couldn't have asked for a better outcome.
Mrs. Dona Johnson
"Sherry Grant and her staff know well the maze that is Workers' Compensation. Their consistent expertise got me through the long, complicated process to an appropriate final settlement. I would recommend Sherry Grant to anyone seeking knowledgeable, confident representation in a Workers' Compensation claim."
Since I got hurt in 1985 I understand the importance of someone I can trust when it comes to speaking on my behalf. In 1986, after a year of struggling with a lot of pain, I still could not find someone who cared about my pain and my injury. Then I was referred to Sherry Grant. She came to my aid, and went beyond that. Any time a member needs guidance or assistance, I call Sherry, and she speaks for the injured worker. I trust her advice and professionalism because she cares.
I was very blessed to have attorney Sherry Grant and her staff working on my case; they are a very dedicated team. Without their patience, knowledge, friendship, perseverance and time, I wouldn’t have received a settlement and the medical treatment I needed.
Attorney Richard Felton provided me with superb legal representation. I was referred to Mr. Felton at a point when I was very unsure about the outcome of my case. He never raised any false hope in me, but he managed to win a very sizeable settlement for me. For this superb performance, I will remain eternally grateful to Mr. Felton and would very gladly and proudly recommend him and his law firm to anyone in need of legal services.
Shaibu O. Obakhume
Richard Felton is an excellent attorney. He is very thorough and kept me in the know every step of the way during my case. I felt a personal connection with him; he was truly concerned about me and my well-being. I had a couple attorneys before I finally found Richard; they did nothing for me. Richard took over my case and accomplished what the others didn't or couldn't. I have already recommended him to a friend of mine, who is very happy to have Richard on his side.
Twice I have turned to attorney Richard Felton when choosing an advocate, and twice I have been rewarded for making the right choice. Mr. Felton is a true professional, a cogent advisor who has a facile understanding of the law from the worker's point of view and who is then able to interpret even the most complex legal perspectives clearly and patiently for his clients. Confidence engenders trust; based on my experiences, I have complete trust in Gordon, Edelstein, Krepack, Grant, Felton, & Goldstein.”
I have been a client of Richard Felton for over nine years. As a physician with a work-related injury, I have high standards. The firm handles my complex case with excellence, professionalism and understanding. Richard is exceptional in addressing my concerns, advocating care, assuring reimbursement and managing the intricacies of my case. Without his help and expertise I would not be feeling as well as I do, nor would I receive the medical care necessary.
My very stressful and painful situation has been made much better by Richard and his wonderful staff. I would strongly recommend anyone seek his advice and counsel for legal issues.
Dr. Carol Otis
Attorney Richard Felton stood by me and fought hard on by behalf for 10 years until my case was finally decided…very successfully. Through it all, Richard always had time for me. He is a very caring, bright, articulate, professional person. I would recommend Richard and his firm to anyone in my position.
Brian R. Sebastian
Larry Goldstein cared so much about my case and worked so hard to get me everything I needed. I have recommended him to two people already. He’s a wonderful person, both as a man and as an attorney. If there were more attorneys like him, the world would be a better place.
I want to express my appreciation to Larry Goldstein and his staff for the wonderful way they handled my case. Their expertise and diligence were outstanding. After my injury, I did not know what to do or which way to turn. Larry and his staff put me at ease, answered all of my questions and addressed any concerns I had. The outcome of my case was more than I imagined.
I'd like to recommend Attorney Irwin Goldstein to anyone who's in need of a Workers’ Compensation attorney. My case was complicated, ultimately resulting in three surgeries, one of which was a 3 level lumbar fusion. That surgery was being denied by the insurance company, but with M.r Goldstein's help, I got the surgery and got my case settled. I couldn't be happier. He's a bulldog of an attorney, the kind you want on your side. He'll be there for you all along the way.
Eloy D. Rivera.
As the former president of the Newport Beach Police Association and an officer who retired honorably due to an on-duty motorcycle collision, I am qualified to discuss Attorney David Goldstein and his abilities to assist police officers that find themselves caught in the Workers’ Compensation system.
David explains forms and procedures to officers so that they understand them, responds to their questions in a timely fashion, and refers them to qualified doctors. Unfortunately, too many times I saw officers follow the advice of their supervisors or work comp personnel, resulting in substandard medical treatment or legal settlements that do not properly compensate them for their injuries.
The sooner you retain David Goldstein, the sooner he can protect your rights and help you get the treatment you deserve.
I was referred to attorney David Goldstein by another lawyer who said Gordon-Edelstein was the only firm I should contact about my on-the-job injury. I initially spoke with Mr. Goldstein on the phone and explained my injuries. During that conversation, he explained the Workers’ Compensation process to me thoroughly, and patiently answered all of my questions. When we met in person, Mr. Goldstein explained what he could do for me and told me what type of medical treatment I could receive and the possible financial compensation I could expect. Mr. Goldstein is a man of his word. Everything he told me came to fruition. One of the many things that impressed me about Mr. Goldstein and his staff was their quick response to my phone calls and e-mails.
School Police Officer
David Goldstein has represented me and several faculty and staff members at my school site with our cases involving chemical exposures in our community. He has proven his professionalism and follow-through with each individual case. Mr. Goldstein and his office staff have been responsive to our concerns while educating members of their rights. He has met with us during various stages of our cases and has extended support throughout the process. It has been a positive experience dealing with David Goldstein.
Ms. Karen Lutz
Educator and Chapter Chair, United Teachers Los Angeles
The Union would like to commend David Goldstein and his firm for their noteworthy work on behalf of those in the janitorial industry. It is reassuring to observe Mr. Goldstein’s level of commitment to the working people. He provides high-quality representation for our members, and educates them so they can enjoy secure and healthy jobs. On behalf of the 42,000 members of SEIU Local 1877, I thank Mr. Goldstein. We look forward to continuing to work together.
SEIU Local 1877
"Workers' Compensation is a daunting matter. As a firefighter/paramedic for more than 20 years, I, like all firefighters, suffered minor injuries throughout my career. The first time I heard my human resources department bragging about how much they saved by confusing their employees and giving them the runaround through a complicated Workers' Compensation process, I began a search for the best Workers' Compensation attorney I could find. After consulting with a few civil attorneys that represented our union local, I called Adam Dombchik.
"I have never seen anyone do as much work as efficiently as Mr. Dombchik. Adam is clearly in tune with the numerous complexities of Workers' Compensation law. Throughout the entire process I felt confident that I was in good hands. Every step of the way, Adam was always willing to answer my calls, texts or emails, and provide me with solid advice. A consultation with Adam will get you an honest assessment of your case with no sales pitch.
"Don't let your public employer get away with cheating you out of what you deserve. Make sure that they follow the law and take care of you, like you have taken care of those you are sworn to protect. I proudly recommend Adam Dombchik to everyone that I speak to who has a work-related injury or illness. Thank you Adam, for your passion and dedication to injured workers in California."
San Gabriel Fire Department (retired)
"I was recommended to Attorney Adam Dombchik by other lawyers who described him as an expert in the field of Workers' Compensation. They were right. He handled my case in a very efficient, professional way. He did a great job, and I'm very happy with the outcome. I would recommend Adam to anyone who wants the best."
Workers' compensation claims can often leave a hardworking employee neglected by his employer, which has a variety of consequences. Having recently been subjected to this, I would like to thank attorney Adam Dombchik and his team for all their hard work. I truly benefitted from Adam's seasoned practice and hard stance on justice for his clients. I am humbled by his unrelenting desire for such a noble cause, and am very thankful that Adam was recommended to help me in this regard.
John Anthony Dolan
Feeling frustrated and defeated by the workers' compensation system, I was ready to give up until a doctor highly recommended I contact Adam Dombchik to review my case. It was one of the best decisions I've ever made.
Adam's team promptly returned my e-mail and conferred with me shortly thereafter. His representation immediately made a profound effect in the way the insurance company and my employer treated me and the case. Adam took all of the pressure and allowed me to focus on my recovery. The workers' comp system is confusing, and Adam patiently explained to me what to expect. Step-by-step, he expertly navigated the case, and provided me peace of mind, a totally unexpected financial settlement, and, most importantly, lifetime medical benefits.
I hope you never need a workers' compensation attorney, but if you do, Adam Dombchik should be your first call.
As a California Police Officer who was shot on duty, I can attest to the fact that having to deal with a workers' comp claim is the last thing any cop wants to deal with. I feel lucky to have been referred to GEKLAW for this matter. Adam Dombchik has made this unfavorable experience one of the easiest to deal with in terms of his knowledge, experience and professionalism! I would recommend GEKLAW and Adam Dombchik to anyone having to deal with such a claim.
Police Officer Joe Lopez
I was very disappointed, frustrated and disgusted with how I was being treated before I met with Attorney Adam Dombchik. Mr. Dombchik was professional and compassionate from the very beginning of my case. He paid attention to every detail, and went above and beyond the call of duty. He always treated me with respect and made sure that I was receiving the care that I needed. Throughout my case, he remained efficient, effective, and truly fought for me until my case was over. I commend him for courtesy and dedication.
As a fireman, I sustained on-the-job injuries, and was not receiving proper medical treatment through the Workers' Compensation system. With Adam Dombchik's knowledge, expertise and guidance throughout the process, I was able to obtain the proper medical treatment and receive my permanent disability retirement. I would highly recommend Adam to anyone who has been hurt at work.
After being rejected by other attorneys who thought that my case wasn't worth fighting for, Adam Dombchik accepted my case. I'm very grateful for his services and the results—he went to trial on my case, won it and then did a post-trial settlement that was even better than the Judge’s award. He made sure that I had medical protection in the future. I highly recommend Adam Dombchik to anyone.
I feel very lucky to have been represented by Adam Dombchik. He is easy to talk to and was very responsive. He returned my calls, emails and texts immediately. He kept on top of things, and kept me informed all along the way. Not only is Adam very professional, but his staff is as well. I would recommend Adam to my friends 100 times over.
Adam Dombchik successfully represented me in a Workers’ Compensation case that my employer kept denying, even though the doctors concluded that my injury was work related. As I was becoming frustrated with the system, Adam was building my case, and we won! I highly recommend Adam to anyone who needs assistance in getting medical treatment from a giant company that refuses to help a long-time employee.
As a side note—while waiting for my hearing, more than one attorney approached me to say how lucky I was to have Adam represent me. They said he was the most honest, smart, hardworking lawyer around.
After nearly 20 years in the law enforcement profession, and having never filed an Injured on Duty claim, I began to have medical issues that caused me to go out on medical leave. The city did not believe my claims and I was forced to use my own accrued sick, holiday, and vacation time. I sought referrals from my peers and was told that Adam Dombchik had an excellent reputation for resolving these types of issues. I met with Adam and knew immediately that he was experienced, knowledgeable, and that he genuinely cared about my situation. Adam was successful in negotiating a substantial permanent disability award as well as financial reimbursement for the leave I had used, and obtained medical evidence that assisted me in obtaining medical retirement. Adam kept me informed throughout this very stressful process and has continued to help even though the case is closed. I highly recommend Adam Dombchik to anyone who may find themselves in a similar situation.
Throughout the two and a half years of my case, attorney Adam Dombchik kept me informed as to the status of the case, returned phone calls and e-mails promptly, and helped me through a very thorough deposition. I have recommended Adam, without hesitation, to several co-workers and others in the Law Enforcement community. Adam was able to resolve my case due to his skill, knowledge and positive working relationships and for that I thank him.

My journey with attorney Adam Dombchik began in 2008; reviewing where I started from and where I’m at today, I can’t thank Adam enough for fighting for me. He has secured me a compensation for everything I’ve had to suffer through all these years. Adam is an honest and realistic person who understands his clients. I have referred Adam to others and I will continue to send potential clients his way because he’s the real McCoy.
My husband spent his career advocating for injured workers. When he died unexpectedly, I wanted to find a firm that would carry on his legacy and fight for his clients. Adam Dombchik and his firm, Gordon Edelstein, did just that. They stepped in and provided helpful assistance to his many clients. I highly recommend Adam and his firm if you need assistance with a workers’ compensation case.
Before contacting Adam Dombchik, the entire process of dealing with Worker's Comp insurance had been aggravating and exhausting. I felt like I was stuck between a rock and a hard place. I was at my wit's end, and I decided to make one last attempt at getting a fair and proper resolution. It was the best decision I could have made. I created a statistical model to determine who was the most talented, genuine and benevolent attorney I could find. Adam was the decisive winner, and I promptly contacted him. For the first time, because of Adam and the GEK law firm, I had a friend in the process. My case is over now, and because of my friend, an equitable conclusion was reached. Thank you Adam.
Patrick W. Edwards
I came to Adam Dombchik with a pretty serious case. I can write an entire page of nothing but positive statements about how Adam treated my case but, more importantly, me as a person. He always supported me, kept me informed, and treated me with honesty and respect. I'm very pleased with the outcome of my case.
Winfred Van Lingen
Adam Dombchik’s professional guidance and counseling made the healing process of putting my life back together much easier for me and my family. We would have given up if it wasn’t for the way Adam helped us with all the barriers and denials from the insurance company. Adam and his staff treated me more as a friend than a client. He effectively negotiated on my behalf to resolve all the legal issues concerning my catastrophic injury. I went through a very painful time, but now it’s finally over and I am me again. Adam and his firm truly are advocates for the injured worker.
I was extremely fortunate to have been represented by Adam Dombchik. He has a strong grasp of law and always talked straight and simply with me and advised me of what I might expect. He and his staff always were prepared and answered all phone calls and e-mails immediately and to my satisfaction. They are entirely devoted to their clients. My trust of Adam was and is 100 percent. He took all of the stress out of my case and made sure that I was compensated properly and treated with dignity.
Matthew H. Berger
After hearing Adam Dombchik speak at an association-sponsored event, I sought his legal assistance regarding an injury case that was nearing resolution. Even though he was not being paid, he assisted me by guiding me through the process to a positive result. Whenever I asked for his assistance, Adam was prompt in his response, thorough and courteous. I really appreciate his guidance and professionalism.
Ventura Police Officer
There are no words I can say that would fully express my appreciation to Adam Dombchik and his team for all their hard work on my case. Their effort resulted in not only a great outcome, but also a very positive effect on my life, and I am so grateful. I appreciated the physical therapy and diagnostic tests that I received. I felt very confident with Adam’s expertise in workers’ compensation law, so I put my life in his hands. He didn’t let me down. I told him early on that I was so glad my case was assigned to him. He is my hero!
I could not have asked for a better workers’ compensation attorney to represent me than Adam Dombchik. He is very knowledgeable and was always willing to explain things to me throughout the entire process. I am also very grateful to his Spanish-speaking staff members for their support and patience.
It makes me proud that my attorney has spoken to legislators concerning injured workers and the benefits we receive. My personal experience with my adjuster was a relationship of intimidation; I received very little information until it was close to too late. I had no knowledge of my rights until I spoke with Adam Dombchik and hired him to oversee and handle my case.
Thank you, Mr. Dombchik
After almost two years of pain and suffering, I was left alone, begging the insurance company to authorize my treatments. I have no regrets in choosing GEK and, most especially, having Adam Dombchik as my legal counsel. I felt very fortunate to have someone with his expertise and knowledge of the law represent me. He really took care of me. He had the insurance company adjust my temporary disability rate to almost double per week and made sure my surgeries were done. If not for Adam, the insurance company would have gotten away with doing practically nothing. The results of Adam's efforts were much more than I expected.
My family and I would like to express our sincerest gratitude to Adam and his staff for helping me and for his professional legal representation.
If I were to describe attorney Adam Dombchik I would say he is loyal, professional and sincere. He understood what I was going through, was concerned about my health and well-being and communicated the facts of my case to me in a way I could understand. I felt very comfortable with him and truly appreciated his battle readiness. He speaks his mind, and people listen. He’s like the Clint Eastwood of attorneys.
I would like to sincerely thank Adam Dombchik and his team for their relentless commitment to settling my case. I initially hired another attorney to handle my case; he accomplished nothing! When Adam took control, I was sent to "reputable" doctors and was able to receive the proper medical testing I needed. Adam’s knowledge of Workers’ Compensation Law is impeccable. When it came time to settle the case Adam took charge and produced a great outcome.
Adam Dombchik put countless hours of hard work and dedication into my case and he kept me informed every step of the way. I appreciate everything he did for me; he really looked out for my best interests. Adam is an experienced and knowledgeable attorney and a true gentleman.
Lillie J. Wilson
Attorney Adam Dombchik’s perseverance, knowledge and experience prevailed in my workers’ comp case. The defense fought till the end, but Adam was more than a match for them every step of the way. I appreciate Adam's dedication and commitment, and would highly recommend him.
I am very pleased by the outcome of my Workers’ Compensation case. Adam Dombchik’s work and the time he spent on my case allowed me to relax, knowing that I was in very capable hands. Adam and his team are very knowledgeable about this area of law, and anyone who uses his services can rest assured that he will use every resource to achieve the best results. I would highly recommend Adam and his firm to anyone wanting the best and most professional legal representation.
Adam Dombchik became my only hope in a denied and disputed Workers’ Compensation claim in which he prevailed. He not only kept me well informed every step of the way, but also made sure that my settlement was in order, including the interest on the money that was owed me. I would be more than happy and proud to refer any of my friends and family members to Adam.
Before I had a consultation with attorney Vincent Bennett about my wrongful daughter’s death, I had consulted with other law firms, and no one seemed to care. Vince listened, was very honest and advised me what I was up against. He kept me posted every step of the way. I would highly recommend him to anyone. He’s not a quitter; he goes all the way for his clients.
Vincent Vallin Bennett is very dedicated to fighting for people who are injured. He did everything he could for me, and he achieved the impossible. He really cared about me and my family. He responded to my phone calls promptly, and thoroughly answered all my questions in a way I could understand. And because he speaks Spanish, I felt particularly comfortable talking to him; we connected very well.”
Attorney Joanna Sacavitch was very responsive to my needs, which put me at ease. My life became better the day I walked into her office.
Police Officer Tim Magdaleno
I would like to express my sincere appreciation for all that attorneys Mark Edelstein and Joanna Sacavitch have done for me. When I first got injured I had no idea that I had rights and that people really do care. I will never forget the great service and the care Mark and Joanna showed to me—priceless.
Steve Scardino’s professionalism, knowledge and concern for my well-being were extraordinary. I feel confident that Steve has my back and has proven to be more than an attorney; I consider him a friend.
Steve Scardino is responsive, attentive, reachable and down-to-earth. He truly cares about the outcome of his clients” cases. He is honest and straight-forward with me and has done everything I have asked and more. I appreciate his devotion and his strong work ethic, and I feel truly lucky to have him in my corner.
I am so fortunate that Amy Leung was my Workers’ Compensation attorney. She was professional, kind and knowledgeable, and was on top of my case every step of the way, which was particularly important when it came to my medical treatment. She listened to and answered all of my concerns. It was refreshing to receive prompt and professional service, and I am very happy with the settlement. I would wholeheartedly recommend Amy to family and friends.
I am very grateful to Amy Leung for all of her work on behalf of my case. It has been a long, difficult struggle; Amy’s support and expertise have helped me so much. I don’t think I would have made it without Amy and her team.
Dr. Carol Otis
Sherry Grant and Erika Vargas
Many thanks go to attorneys Sherry Grant and Erika Vargas, two amazing professionals, who addressed all my legal issues in a straight-forward manner with understanding and sensitivity throughout the entire process. Sherry and Erika are extremely knowledgeable, and shared all information in a sensible and direct style. Both women have a great deal of grace and class and made the arduous process of worker's compensation bearable.
Howard Krepack and Gary Stern
Howard and Gary are truly kind people. They understood what I was going through and felt deeply for me. Their professionalism and experience in handling these types of cases allowed us to achieve a successful outcome without going to court. It was a tough battle, but they did their homework, conducted interviews with people who could speak on my behalf, collected sworn testimony and put the puzzle together. I was very happy with Howard and Gary's representation and would definitely recommend them.
Mr. Charles Buckingham
Roger Gordon and Sherry Grant
Roger did a great job. He is very, very knowledgeable and explained things thoroughly. He was always there for my wife and me when we needed him. If I were to meet someone who needs a personal injury lawyer, I would definitely recommend Roger. I also worked with his partner, Sherry Grant. She was my workman's compensation attorney and I admire her a lot.
Mr. Weston Miller
Jill Singer is a compassionate, caring and confident attorney. The Social Security Disability Insurance appeals process is a long, painful and exhausting one, but Jill made it much easier with her advice and knowledge. I was ready to give up, but she supported me throughout the long process. She listens, answers all questions and really cares. Her paralegal, Yolondra Greenwood, is wonderful, too--supportive, responsive and very helpful. They make a great team.
All of us know how serious getting approved for Social Security Disability Benefits is, and how stressful it can be leading up to the hearing. I literally cried as I didn't know what the future held for me. How would I provide for myself? How would I provide for my fiancée? It was an extremely emotional roller coaster.
I was referred to attorney Jill Singer by Caitlin Sullivan, a fantastic paralegal for attorney Sherry Grant from the same firm—Gordon Edelstein. Jill explained to me fully how the system works, and gave me materials to review. I am most grateful for the opportunity to have had Jill represent me. I am not aware of a single instance when a call was not returned expeditiously in a professional manner. My hearing took about 15 minutes and a Bench decision was in my favor.
If you have Jill on your side, you will be very well represented and she will make sure you know how to prepare yourself for such an important life-changing event.
After many months of waiting for Social Security Disability, I was awarded my favorable decision thanks to attorney Jill Singer and her team. Although waiting was the worst part, the process was fairly painless. Jill's assistants were very accessible and promptly answered my questions and dealt with my concerns. Upon meeting Jill prior to my hearing, I could see that she had all of the information neatly organized. She prepared me properly for the hearing, and made sure I knew how to present myself. I would highly recommend Jill.”
After speaking with attorney Jill Singer, I had a clear understanding of the Social Security Disability appeals process and what I could expect. She left no stone un-turned from beginning to end. I felt totally at ease with Jill handling my case, and for good reason—she is a true professional. I can't fully explain the joy I felt when the judge gave his ruling in our favor. I would highly recommend Jill Singer to anyone in need of legal representation in a Social Security Disability appeals case.
If you are looking for an attorney because Social Security has denied your application, Jill Singer is the lawyer for you. In and out of your hearing, Jill will work very hard for you. She'll go over everything you need to know about your case. If it weren’t for her, I wouldn’t have received a decision in my favor.
I retained Attorney Jill Singer to represent me in a Social Security Disability case. I was extremely pleased with the attention she and her staff gave me. She was very professional and always found the time to speak with me and answer any questions. She won the appeal in a few months. Jill has all of the attributes expected in a good lawyer: professionalism, integrity, strategic thinking and responsiveness.
Jill Singer is very kind and personable. She responded expeditiously to my every question and made sure I understood the process.
Attorney Jill Singer was very professional and thorough throughout my entire Workers’ Compensation case. She clearly explained to me the details of my claim and was available for questions throughout the process. She always followed up with me to help ease my concerns and stress. I would confidently recommend Jill’s services to anyone needing a Workers’ Compensation attorney.
“Attorney Jill Singer represented me in my federal Social Security Disability appeal before an SSD Administrative Judge. Our victory is a real testament to Jill’s legal ability. A key to our success was Jill’s overriding advice throughout the process and during the hearing. And, she took an extremely reasonable fee for what was an outstanding result, one that has assured my financial well-being. She is an impressive lawyer that I would highly recommend!”
I would recommend Workers’ Compensation attorney Jill Singer to any of my friends. She was very easy to talk to and always explained the details of my case so I could understand what was happening. Jill was very attentive, and always made me feel important.
“The Social Security Disability Appeals process is not easy to go through, but attorney Jill Singer made it stress-free for me with her skillful, compassionate support. She is a true professional, and I’m grateful for all her help.
From the moment I spoke with Attorney Erika Vargas, and after a deep breath and a huge sigh, a feeling of confidence and calm came over me regarding my legal representation. She has a unique style and personality that make me feel like I have known her for years and that I have found an attorney that considered me first as a human being and second as a client. She clearly understands my Workers’ Compensation injuries and explains my options in a way that makes me confident that I am being represented by one of the best. While I have been abandoned by my employer and without any responses by my previous attorney's office, Erika has stepped up to the plate and I look forward to finally getting my life back in control. I will recommend Erika Vargas and GEK Law without exception to all who ask for legal representation.
Gordon, Edelstein is one of the most professional firms that I have dealt with. They have done a lot to educate our members about the laws pertaining to both workplace and personal injuries. When one of our members has been injured, the firm's professionals have clearly explained the options. In all of their dealings with us, they have been responsive, courteous and honest.
