  • Gary Hale Gerstenfield

    Mr. Shurberg is an amazingly effective and truly gifted litigator and advocate. There is no problem too great or dilemma too difficult that Jon cannot solve. Among journeymen lawyers, Jon is universally recognized as a master. But, what really distinguishes Harry as among the elite of trial lawyers is the warmth and compassion he brings in resolving the seemingly unsolvable legal issues that many his clients face.
