On May 27, 2020, the New York Legislature voted to extend the lookback window of the Child Victims Act (CVA) for an additional year until August 14, 2021.

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy protection on February 17, 2020 amidst several expensive sex-abuse lawsuits.

On August 5th, a former Boy Scout filed a lawsuit against the Boy Scouts of America (BSA), alleging that the organization failed to protect them against sexual abuse at the hands of troop leaders and others in positions of power.

I contacted GL&K regarding an incident that happened to me to see if this was something that they covered. I spoke with Hannah from the intake department and she was kind, professional and thoroughly explained their process. She listened to my story with care and patience and was true to her word and got back to me within the timeframe that she said. And even though my particular case was not one that they handled, Hannah and the partners went the extra step to refer me to another attorney that specializes in my cases area. I put a call in to the recommended attorney and am awaiting his call. I will not hesitate to contact Gersowitz Libo and Korek again in the future should the need arise! Hannah is a superstar and represents herself and the company quite well.
Jeff Korek personally called me to tell me that my phone call fell through the cracks. He is sincere and willing to help anyway possible.
Avinu and Ed did a fantastic job on my case. They were there to guide me along the way, answer any questions I had carefully, and ultimately got me a beyond satisfactory settlement for my case.
GLK provided excellent services for my lawsuit. I would work with them again and recommend them highly for anyone looking for a law firm that is attentive and responsive to clients' needs. And they provided great results!

I can't possibly say enough good things about my experience with this law firm. It's difficult to imagine going through this trial without Gersowitz, Libo, & Korek and in particular, Jeff Korek. Articulate, intelligent, kind, and direct were my first impressions of him and until I saw him in the courtroom, I had no idea that these qualities would make him unstoppable at trial. In a lawsuit that spanned almost 7 years, I put myself in his hands and wouldn't hesitate to do it again. Difficult at times but Jeff and his team were sensitive to those difficulties and made me understand that they would help and protect me during the process. I came to trust them implicitly. Jeff and his team not only secured my ability to pay for future medical treatments and chemotherapy, but he made sure that my children's future was secure. At Gersowitz, Libo, & Korek, they fight for you like you're family and treat you as such. Thank you, Jeff, for fighting for my future and helping me stay in the fight with you! I hope this day never comes but I wouldn't hesitate to ask for your help again.
So many times I wanted to quick and Jeff guided me on the right path. Answered all my questions, always there when I had a concerned regarding the case. Very smart and knowledgeable. I would recommend his services. I appreciate all your help. My financial future is secure for my family and I thanks to you guys.
Words alone cannot express our utmost gratitude at the comprehensive handling of my family’s case. This was a long, drawn out case that took quite some time to come to judgment. Jeff and his team were very thorough and relentless in their pursuit of justice for our family. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a lawyer.

For a personal injury lawyer I would recommend Jeff Korek without any doubt's
