  • Christine G. DeBernardis

    I endorse this attorney. I recently found Attorney Graifman here on Avvo and suggested that a friend contact him relative to a matter in NJ. Though it was a minor issue, Attorney Graifman took the time to listen and assisted him with practical advice. Obviously a scholar in his field, Attorney Graifman has a personal touch with his clients and is a credit to his profession.

  • Michael Scott Green

    I have worked with Gary Graifman on many complex litigation cases over the course of many years and he has always been the consumate professional in his dealings with clients, adversaries and the Courts. He is extremely knowledgeable as to the current case law and excellent on his feet arguing cases in front of Judges at every level, including appeals in State and Federal Courts. He is truly a lawyer's lawyer and any potential client would be well represented if they retained him.
