flight injury
I was burnt by scalding coffee served by a flight attendant on a flight to Frankfurt in 2017. This happened at the end of the flight before landing. I sustained second degree burns to my stomach. Although the flight attendants were very apologetic they did not help me in getting my bags or handing me over to ground staff to get medical attention at the airport. I had only forty five minutes to walk to a different terminal, take a shuttle and board another flight to Italy. I was reeking of coffee, my clothes wet, in mind numbing pain, holding my t-shirt so it will not stick to the wound, I was rushing through the airport shivering and sobbing with pain. I will never forget the humiliation and the utter loneliness I felt at that time. I called few law firms and they told me that this had to be handled by a lawyer specializing in flight injuries. I did not know such a concept existed before. I googled and Abe came up. He answered my e mail and called me immediately. He showed knowledge and expertise in handling these kind of injuries and I trusted him. He understood me and was sympathetic and gave me the pros and cons of each settlement situation as they arose and never pushed me in any direction. In the end I was able to secure a fair settlement with his help. I would recommend Abe to anyone who seeks help in a similar situation.

Staunch ally in a difficult time
I retained Mr. Bohrer after I was injured by falling luggage on an international flight. He was very helpful throughout the settlement process and contacted me frequently to see how I was doing and keep me updated on the case. He ultimately obtained a fair settlement for my injuries and I was very happy with his services. He was very professional and I would highly recommend him to all!

His knowledge and industry contacts enabled him to thoroughly analyze my case and obtain the evidence that established the liability.

Outstanding Aviation Legal Representation
Abe explained in detail the process of moving forward with my case. He helped to manage my expectations of the outcome. With Abe in my corner looking out for my best interest, I was able to put closure on a life changing event.

Outstanding attorney
We hired Bohrer & Lukeman following an unfortunate international airport accident affecting my mother. During a difficult time in our family, Abram (“Abe”) Bohrer was our ally. Sensitive to the fact that my mother was gravely ill and time was running short for her to testify, he pursued a complicated international case vigorously, swiftly, and ultimately to a good conclusion. Abe brought not only top-rate legal expertise to the case, but was accessible, personable, and caring from start to finish. I remain grateful that we hired him; he represented my mother both professionally and compassionately, with integrity as well as determination. My family had full trust in him and we recommend this firm without hesitation.

Best Attorney
My case was related to a foot injury in an airline. I immediately contacted Mr Bohrer and he personally talked to me. He was always easy to access, he would respond to my e-mails immediately and kept me up to date on the advances of my case. I really liked the fact that there was no assistant or secretary in the way, he personally followed up my case. He was clear on explaining each step of the process and was very precise on what he needed from me in order for the case to go forward. Mr Bohrer gave me an extremely professional treatment. We were able to settle with the airline, which avoided me from having to go to trial. I am completely satisfied with the results of my case and the efficient job Mr Bohrer did.

The best..
My step-mother died on an international flight due (at least partially) to the negligence of the airline. The lawyers declined the case because the causation would be too difficult to prove and the airline's resources too great to overcome. Abe took the case and doggedly pursued the airline for two years in multiple countries. The multi-million dollar settlement that Abe negotiated allowed my father some peace, and gave him the opportunity to establish a foundation in his late wife's name. My only regret is that we wasted any time speaking to other lawyers and did not engage Abe immediately.

Excellent Lawyer
Abe did an excellent job for me and my family. He doesn't over promise but he delivers. I found his office staff understanding and patient during a very difficult time in my life. If you need someone you can trust, I would highly recommend Abe.

catered his service to me and my quirky requests
I wanted to forget about my hip replacement fiasco, just close the chapter. So I asked Abe to NOT keep me posted, to only contact me when he needed information. He agreed -- long as I promised I'd never hesitate to call with questions. In the three years we worked together , he and his staff did not unnecessarily pester me once. But they did respond immediately to even the most inane questions. And when the settlement finally came through, they did not -- I repeat, NOT - nickle and dime me with fees for copying and postage and such. Abe and his colleagues are brilliant and competent, and also honest and respectful -- unfortunately, not a combination I have often found in lawyers. Bravo!

I'd recommend Abram Bohrer in a heartbeat
I'm positive I got the very best resolution to my case by going with Abram Bohrer as my legal representation. The settlement we ultimately won was more than I could have hoped for when my burn injury occurred. I'm confident Mr. Bohrer's reputation among the airlines as an effective litigator for his clients played a big role in that. All along the process, he kept me informed every step of the way, even about smaller procedural issues. When it came time to decisions, I felt like he objectively (and patiently) presented all the pros and cons of each option and never pushed me in a certain direction. I'd recommend him in a heartbeat!

Perfect Lawyer
Abe is the perfect lawyer for many reasons. He is incredibly bright and articulate and is able to think fast on his feet. He is also good for people like me who hesitate to stand up for their rights even when they know they have been wronged.

No lawyer wanted take my "small"case, but Abe did and he did a great job
I strongly recommend Mr. Abram Bohrer, Esq. He took my case when no other lawyer gave importance to my "small"case, as it was labeled by other four lawyers before I contacted him. Even when I did not hear from Abe I was confident he was doing his job. The conclusion of the case encourage me to write this review for anyone who needs an aviation lawyer. My burn injury during a flight was not just a matter of compensation, the damage caused was far more damaging to me and my family. It is also my hope that the airline solves the issues that cause my accident. My aviation accident happened when traveling home to bury my little brother. After a few minutes from the take off I was served scalding coffee that seconds after landed on my lap and foot. I was denied pain medicine and suffered from a second degree burn. I lost my connecting flight and I arrived home to my family on a wheelchair. They were never informed about the accident when they requested information when I did not arrive at the scheduled time. The look on my mother's face when I arrived, the pain I went through the 6 hour flight and my fear this could happen to anyone again motivated me to find an aviation lawyer and suit the airline. Abe did a good job and he resolved the case with a fair agreement and compensation. I cannot be any happier with his work. Once again, I strongly recommend his legal services. Max B.
