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.
Jeff Korek has been outstanding in accomplishing a settlement of my lawsuit. He has done everything that a client would ask of his lawyer. He and his staff have always been honest, informative,and trust worthy . His reputation as a lawyer who gets the job done has truly been earned. For a personal injury lawyer I would recommend Jeff Korek without any doubt's
