When I met Reed I had just about given up hope in finding someone to help me. Reed gave me a voice and I will be forever grateful. From start to finish I had the utmost confidence in his abilities. He along with his staff worked extremely hard on my case to produce a very favorable outcome. He was very accessible and kept me well informed on the progressof my case. I found him to be caring and compassionate as he helped me through the all difficult things that go along with a law suit. He is straight forward, smart, articulate, and a man of character. Through out the process I found him to be well respected by his peers. Reed was a bulldog and fought hard for me . I would highly recommend Reed Schifferman should you need the help of an attorney.

Reed was the only good thing that I or my brothers and sisters took out of our mothers death. He was very compassionate and careing of our moms death. He never left us in the dark, was always in touch with the family, worked endlees hours for us and was always up front with us. When you go to and att. it is usually with a urgent problem. He was very responsable in his behavior and professional approch to the family and his colleagues. You couldn't ask for, or find a better att. or humanitarian to repesent you. I highly recommend this man, and would trust him with my welfare.

Reed Schifferman represented our family in a malpractive suit on our mother's
behalf. I was so very impressed with all that he did for our case and the way
he treated us. He worked so hard for us and I believe that he truly cared as much
as we did for the suffering our mom dealt with. I think he is a wonderful person as
well as a great lawyer.

It is tragic when life's events put one in need of retaining a malpractice attorney, but when it is necessary, a better one than Reed Schifferman would be difficult to come by. In the two years I worked with Reed and his staff I was immediately and continually impressed with their professionalism and sensitivity to my family's unbearable loss. Reed was tireless in his dedication to our case. He was unbelievably thorough in his investigation, and left no aspect of our case to chance. I received regular updates on all of the work being done on the case, and I was confident that I was completely informed 100% of the time. I especially appreciated Reed's honest and straight-forward nature. Reed's experience on the defense side as well as the plaintiff side of malpractice suits gives him valuable perspective. He always made sure I understood the big picture, and that I was clear on what the realities of the case were. I would have preferred to have met Reed under different circumstances; however, I will be forever grateful that I did meet him, and for what he accomplished for my family.

My association with Reed was approx. 3 years.He handled a medical malpractice suit for my siblings and myself.Reed was very good in every aspect of our lawsuit.He always kept in close contact with me and would promply return my phone calls and always kept me up to date on all that was going on.He spent many many hours over the three years that he worked on our suit.He is honest,reliable,compassionate and took a genuine interest in our mother's cituation.Reed's background and knowledge in our type of lawsuit was first class.My family feels that he covered every avenue for us and in the end came up with a very positive conclusion.My experience with Reed left me with a trust in him that makes me feel that I could trust him with all of my affairs if me or my wife were unable to take care of ourselves.He is an all around excellent lawyer as well as an excellent person.

Mr. Schifferman may be good if your case is a slsm dunk or requires a bully at the helm. However, in our case he failed to keep us informed throughout the case and in the end his game plan backfired. When I tried to discuss problems with our case he told me to be quiet or things would not go well between us. He never shared strategy, documents or guidance on a timely basis. We had to go to the Bar Association that were rightfully ours in the first place. He would send us emails consistently that ignored the questions we asked, failed to research holes in the defense's case and then blew us off. Sometimes we would receive impulsive emails from him in the middle of the night that were of no significance to the case snd he also enjoyed scaring us rather than tryijng to reassure or inform us. We were so relieved when we parted ways with him. My wife and I were close to nervous breakdowns from working with Reed.
