The service that I received from this law firm was beyond reproach! Their professionalism and genuine concern for the rights of their client was beyond what I could have hoped for. God forbid anyone ever have to go through what I did, but if you do, I would highly recommend Jackie Garcell and Jason Margulies to represent your case. They fought tirelessly to get me the justice and compensation that would help me move on with my life. I cannot thank them enough!

Mr. Charles Lipcon was a wonderful and empathetic attorney to me. He took my case on a contingency bases when no other Law Firm would. I was very skeptical of attorneys because in a related lawsuit I was overcharged by thousands of dollars, but Mr. Lipcon treated me with respect and honesty. Thank you again Mr. Lipcon!
