I would highly recommend the law firm of Gersowitz, Libo and Korek if you are looking for legal help and representation that is thorough, honest and personal. My family and I were faced with a horrible situation and both Jeff Korek and Ed Gersowitz were there from the beginning, keeping us well informed throughout the process and were always available at a moment's notice whenever we needed them. Their support staff was just as attentive and conscientious. They definitely made an awful situation easier to handle, and I am very grateful to all of them for that!
Working with Mr. Fruhling and associates has been an amazing experience, mainly because of the transparency in regards to every aspect. He was very patient with me. When I didn’t understand certain things him & his team explained step by step without any problems. Michael and his team constantly gave it their all to make sure they were always on top of everything. Cannot thank him and the rest of the office enough for all they have accomplished for me. Thank you!

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.
