Great Attorney
Mr. Graifman restored my faith in attorneys ..after meeting with several dishonest attorneys, Mr Graifman took my case, handled it professionally and solved my problem...He continually contacted me with updates prior to the final resolution. I could not have been more happy with an attorney and would always return to his office first . In addition, Mr Graifman was knowledgeable, polite, and just an all around nice guy ...would highly recommend

Gary Graifman
Gary Graifman from KGG, represented our pharmaceutical company in a complicated corporate matter. His time and dedication to the matter provided us with a sense of confidence, security and loyalty which I am certain most companies cannot express about their attorneys. He is an attorney who stands out among his colleagues and “raises the bar” for which we were truly appreciative.

"I endorse this lawyer."
Class action Attorney | Jul 03
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer. Gary is an experienced and well prepared class action litigator. I have reached out to him in the past for his advice in this area. I have discussed with Mr. Graifman matters that he has handled both in and out of State. Recently, I congratulated him on the successful conclusion of a case which received very favorable press coverage involving a lawsuit that received a verdict in favor of his clients in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. One represented by Mr. Graifman has not only a knowlegable attorney but one who prepares a case for trial and if not resolved in settlement then is committed to having a jury resolve the matter. His intregrity matches Gary's expertise. One is fortunate to have him as the worthy and formitable advocate who has earned the respect of his colleagues"
Litigation Attorney | Jul 03
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"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."

"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."
