Highly recommended as Auto accidents lawyer
Tanya Gendelman got back to me very quickly and took time to fully understand my situation. She answered my questions with important detail, and I felt very confident. Her staff is very professional too. My case is still pending but I am confident she will get me the best deal, given her 20 years of experience. Forgot to mention: her Russian is awesome too (if you prefer)!

Lawyer Review
Great law office, did everything they had to do in a timely fashion. They got the whole case settled as fast as they possibly could and for that I am thankful. I would recommend Tanya for any case.

Great Attorney !!!!
Ms. Gendelman is one of the attorneys who broke my stereotype of this profession. Passion and trustworthiness are two most precise words that spring to my mind when it comes to the most accurate description of this person. Her ability not only to recognize business opportunity but sincerely help people to recover from damages simply by patiently listening to their story is the real key to success.

Amazing Fast Results
Amazing lawyer that does not quit until she gets results. No wonder she's running for Lt Governor. THANK YOU Tanya!

Amazing Lawyer
Tanya Gendelman and her staff were so professional caring and sincere that it blew me away. I didn’t think there were such passionate lawyers who provided such great attention and dedication. She established such a great relationship with me and my wife that I referred her to all my colleagues and friends. She won my car accident case swiftly. It was very smooth and she provided a lot of moral support. If you want a lawyer who cares about you, the individual, who will call you and ask how you are feeling, Tanya Gendelman is your attorney.

Reliable and mature
I was referred to attorney Tanya Gendelman by a friend, whom she is representing in medical malpractice case in New York. Since I live in California, Ms. Gendelman was not directly involved with my medical malpractice lawsuit, however, she was so caring, helpful and compassionate and so quickly responsive at any time of the day or night to my inquiries, giving me excellent and very helpful advices, that I want to tell the world how wonderful she is. She is not just a smart and knowledgeable lawyer, but she is really an amazing person with strong understanding of other people's pain and suffering and personal kindness, compassion and eagerness to help. There are no boundaries for her to spend her time to help the people. Her assistance and caring is very touching, she has a huge heart where there is a special spot for everyone, who is suffering and needs lawyer’s representation. I would highly recommend her, you can find Tanya Gendelman's information on her website at:

I had been in a bad car crash
My wife and I had been in a bad car crash. I knew that I needed help when the insurance company for the responsible party was not responding to our phone calls. I contacted Tanya Gendelman, Esq. on the advice of a friend who had many great things to say about her. Tanya settled our case for far more than we had ever expected!

Highly Recommended Personal Injury Lawyer
Chris Epp and his staff expertly handled my accident related injury case from start to finish. All referrals to trusted Physical Therapy and diagnostic imaging clinics, as well as a specialist (orthopedic pain management, in my case) are taken care of for you. Once all medical rehabilitation was completed, they easily settled my case within a few short weeks. Highly recommended.

2 years with no contract from their side.
Wow! Such a waste! I had an accident back in 2018, I didn't have anyone who was in the same situation before so I checked online and choose them. At the beginning everything was okay I guess but when I went to doctor office they have recommended I started feel something is weird happening. The doctor was 'suggesting' that I have pain in other parts of my body which I did not! After a few visits for treatment I started feel worse. I have contacted the lawyer and that was pretty much the last time I heard back from them. They said we will see what's wrong and give you another doctor. Long story short - I had to find a doctor myself and use my insurance for physical therapy (I did felt difference after first visit) and a couple days ago I recieved a letter from the lawyer's office that they close my case.... I will never ever hire a lawyer from former USSR countries - it's all a big scam.

They are a VERY tiny office, but I was desperate. I was promised that I could verify proof of all attorney expenses that I would have to pay, but I didn't get this promise in writing. Do not take their word for it. Get it in writing! The attorney fees they charged me was taken out from my settlement and then after that the remaining was sent to me via a check and I have no idea what all the attorney fees they took out of my settlement was for other than their vague explanation of "postage, phone calls, etc." Make sure you get it in writing that you will get an "itemized" breakdown explaining every dollar they charged you and if they refuse then hold off on signing the settlement release until they send you an itemized breakdown of attorney fees. DO NOT TAKE THEIR WORD FOR IT. I've also noticed they kept pressuring me to go to a specific doctor for my treatments and when I tried going to another doctor of my own choosing then the receptionist, Olga, actually told me that I could NOT. This surprised me and made me wonder why are they so insistent that I go to this specific doctor for my case? Do they have some kind of special beneficial arrangement with them? I mean, they REALLY pushed to convince me to go to their doctor, enough for me to take notice.
