I hired Jack (Lawrence) Gibney to handle my social security case.
In court he said little to nothing because he was threatened by the judge. The judge took it upon himself to take practically a year of my benefits. What I have researched and found, once you win your social security case, the social security administration will withhold 5 to 6 months of your benefits. This was placed into law to make certain that if you are claiming that you are disabled you are indeed that. That if your income is withheld it would force you to work. The judge took it upon himself to do this. So the judge and social security withheld my funds. Jack Gibney reassured me that he would handle this situation, he never did no matter how many times I have spoken with him. I, along with my children have lost all of the benefits that were withheld. Jack appears to be nice but he is not thorough and does not follow through. He received all of his fees. I am disappointed and would not recommend him to.handle your social security case.

This was a workman's comp injury case. At the start, I felt confident that Mr. Gibney was a good choice. He assured me that he would be with me every step of the case. After constant delays, I was told this is just the way these cases are. Mr. Gibney would ask repeatedly ask if I had any shooting pains down my leg. I always answered the same. No. After a year of no income and constant pain, he made the offer to settle for $4000 without discussing it with me. He assured me that he would see to it that I get a second opinion with a spine/pain specialist. I then received a letter from Mr. Gibney that the insurance company wanted to settle for $4000. When I refused he dropped me. He stated it was a disagreement of what my case was worth. The fact is... I wanted and still want help with my ongoing pain from my injury.
If you want recovery and help with physical damage from an injury, I would not recommend this attorney.

Jack and his team made our adoption process so easy. Their compassion, knowledge, and honesty was so comforting for both us and our son's birth parents. Jack and his team fully explained and held our hands through the entire adoption process and ensured all parties were comfortable with decisions we were making. Thank you Jack!
