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!
