I had the same experience as the other reviewer. Gefsky took our money - $1000.00 , to file a simple bankruptcy. He never followed through to file a court date. His office person, Kathryn, said to call at a particular time to talk to them, then she left the office saying it was too noisy and then she hung up on me.
I could never get any results nor speak to anyone who I felt cared at all about my distress. This went on for three years until my brother-in law who I was helping file, died.
Gefsky still wouldn't return the money. His office person said he had done some work on the case. I called the courthouse to find that he had never filed.
He should never practice law again. I never got my money.

This lawyer has failed not just once but TWICE to file the proper paperwork to finalize my bankruptcy. Communication is non existent; his office person, Cathy, has no professionalism whatsoever. And neither does Gefsky. When he filed my bankruptcy case the second time, it made it as far as meeting with the trustee. Gefsky arrived late, wearing khakis, a jeans shirt and deck shoes. Having never seen him (I had originally dealt with one of his associates in what appeared to be a more or less abandoned office), I never would have recognized him as a lawyer. A week after the meeting, I took the second part of my bankruptcy education and sent a copy to him at his main office. The bankruptcy education company did the same. When I spoke with Cathy a week later to make sure she had gotten it and that it was or would be filed, her comment was, “I don't know, I’ve got a bunch of them. If you don't hear from me, it means I've got it." I didn’t hear from her and so, believed that she was following through with the final part of my bankruptcy. I trusted her and Gefsky to get this done, seeing they had failed me once already (failed to file within the time allotted after taking the first half of the education). Last Friday, I received a letter from the Bankruptcy court that said that I had failed to take the final part of my education and so, my case was closed. So, here I go again after wasting $1300 and a year and a half of my time.
