Robert Kornfeld provided outstanding legal services for me in response to injuries I incurred as a result of physician and medical staff neglect at a major Washington-based medical center. His drive, professionalism, and experience resulted in a significant financial award for me.

My wife and I were involved in a 4 vehicle accident in late 2011. I was following my wife as we drove separately in our cars. As traffic stopped in front of her, I saw the situation and proceeded to slow almost to a stop when a vehicle following me, obviously not aware of the situation, struck me from behind, forcing me into my wife's car and she into a truck in front of her. All the vehicles besides the truck were totaled. Two "witnesses", who were not at good vantage points to see the accident, wrote incorrect information, which unfortunately the other driver's insurance company grabbed onto in their claim their insured was not totally at fault. Our insurance company was not obtaining witness reports and other information to help us in this situation.
As we had suffered injuries directly related to the accident, as well as lost both cars, we chose to hire an attorney to help navigate through the mess. I searched online reviews and AVVO and identified a couple possible attorneys. After meeting with Rob Kornfeld, we knew we had just hired an advocate and an experienced litigator who wouldn't be deterred by insurance company tactics. I'm so glad we did.
While the long wait to conclude medical procedures and to schedule depositions took much longer than we would have hoped, in the end, at arbitration, the legal expertise of Rob Kornfeld was evident and the smoke and mirrors presented by the opposing insurance company counsel proved futile. The Arbitrator ruled 100% in our favor and we had 0% liability. The Arbitrator award was reasonable and allowed us to recover our costs and reimburse for medical expenses plus some general damages.
Rob's legal staff was good at keeping us updated when we had questions and responded to my requests for copies of documents and information. Rob shared his cell number so we were able to communicate directly when key parts of our case were coming up. Rob was very frank about potential risks he saw in the case, as well as what he felt was needed to prove our points. He always asked if there were questions we wanted answered during depositions and would help explain things me or my wife didn't understand. We felt heard, supported and confident being represented by Rob Kornfeld. We have no reservations in recommending Rob and his team to anyone needing representation against in insurance environment that is all about business and the bottom line.

From the day we walked into Mr. Kornfeld's office until the time our case was resolved, we knew that we were never alone in the journey. We sought justice after facing a terrible ordeal, and with Rob's unwavering support, we were able to bring a semblance of closure to the things we had to go through as a family.
Together with the superb assistance of Dawn, his knowledgeable and very organized paralegal, Rob made sure that all issues we faced were noted, and properly addressed. He listened intently, weighed the pros and cons of our case, and answered our questions diligently. He was always on top of the situation, making sure that the other party would not have the chance to give excuses for misjudgment or trivial conclusions. Not once did Rob make us feel pressured when prompted to make decisions, too. Throughout the process, he was there with and for us every step of the way. Dawn, on the other hand, with her quiet presence and immeasurable compassion, kept us constantly informed and updated.
Rob, given his extensive knowledge and remarkable experience in medical malpractice, is, without doubt, the BEST advocate anyone could hope for.

I feel very lucky to have found Rob after my accident. After being back- ended by a freight truck you can imagine what shape I was in! I felt I was in great hands with Rob & Mariea. They took care of everything from start to finish. I didn't have worry about anything except getting better. I can't recommend them high enough! What a team!

I hired Robert Kornfeld when I was in a desperate emotional state due to extreme difficulties in my work place. These were the kind of difficulties that required professional assistance because my rights were continually violated in my work place. I thank god for his persistence in my case. No matter how long it took and how frustrated I got he made every effort to make sure that I got compensated for the loss of my job due to work place management violations. Mr. Kornfeld helped me and for that I am forever grateful.

I entered into this litigation not knowing what to expect. After the first interview with Mr Kornfeld an Dawn Poley his paralegal I felt totally assured that first I had a case and was equally confidant that Robs firm could take me where I needed to go. At times when I felt down and felt I was treading water Rob always had something new to encourange me with. I dont think I could of picked a better attorney.I would certainly recommend him to family,friends, or anyone.

I had a great experience with Robert and his team. He treated me well and explained to me the whole process as we went through the case which took a long time. Though my english was not good , he was able to communicate very well with me through an interpreter.

I was treated with respect, kept well informed, given wise sensible advice. This is a very stable, honest and experienced lawyer. Robert Kornfield doesn't promise you the world but gives an honest assessment of your case. If you want a lawyer who knows the legal system and deals ethically with you this is your lawyer.

I am very grateful to Rob Kornfeld and his paralegal for the many months they invested in my personal injury/worker's compensation case. Without his knowledge and dedication, the case may not have gone so well..
I was hit head-on , while working as a bus driver. My ex-employer, being self-insured, cancelled my needed second rotator surgery, deliberately removed me from my job, with the admitted intent to fire me when my FMLA expired, and then wanted to keep a lien on my personal injury settlement.
Mr. Kornfeld's knowledge, experience and determination paid off, and I am very grateful to he and his paralegal, Dawn, for being so tolerant of my fears, anxieties, and numerous emails to them, during these harsh economic uncertainties of being injured and un-employed.
I am still un-employed, but many thanks to Mr. Kornfeld, I now have the faith I will survive this horrific experience.
I highly recommend Rob Kornfeld to any and all injured bus drivers who face the same self-injured suffering.
