Miracle Worker‼️‼️
Looking for an amazing lawyer…. Look no further! This is the review you’ve been looking for! I was visiting my family in Allentown, Pa for July 4th 2022 and a driver ran a red light and hit me. I contacted Knafo Law offices when I returned home to South Carolina and they immediately started working on my case. Throughout the entire time I was kept in the loop about everything. The paralegal that worked on my case (Mrs. Melissa) was absolutely phenomenal. My preferred contact method was by email and she was prompt and responded to every single question I had. She sent updates frequently. Attorney Knafo is a miracle worker! He’s so personable and funny. He worked hard on my case and got me wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy more than I even expected! I was in complete shock. He’s absolutely amazing. If you need a lawyer I would recommend this law office over and over and over again! They care about you and they will work to get you the compensation you deserve! Thank you Attorney Knafo!!!

Exceptional Experience
No one wants to call a personal injury attorney, but after being hit by a pickup truck, I knew I needed a good one and I chose the best-Jerry Knafo. Jerry returned my call promptly, and was honest, direct and professional. He was also funny, human, and compassionate. He told me how he operated and then followed through, and I never doubted that he would produce. After four months, I’ve recovered from my injuries and the settlement he reached has truly compensated me for my pain and suffering. Great law firm, outstanding guy. Thank you Jerry!

HIGHLY Recommend Knafo Law Offices, Not only did I receive far more then I ever could of imagined, But also in such a short timeframe. On top of how quickly and professionally everything was handled. They truly put you first and I'm beyond ecstatic with the results, Jerry Knafo and his team are phenomenal. The First and Last place you should ever look for anything Injury or Accident related.

Merci beaucoup l’avocat Jerry !
Jerry and his Team were very professional, helpful and kind. What impressed me from the customer point of view is that Jerry listened closely to our questions and concerns. Which made it very comfortable for us for the decisions we made concerning the case. Jerry went above and beyond to help; he reached out by himself to us whenever there is a progress on the case. He was very friendly, and I am afraid I took so much time from his busy schedule chatting about other thing!. It was a pleasure working with him and his team. I certainly will do business with him again. And a special shout-out to Dawn who was always there for us helping.

Above and Beyond!
We had a positive experience working with Atty. Knafo and JoNean. They worked with my husband and I over the last year and a half and truly listened and cared about how we were impacted by his accident. Thank you for working hard to negotiate a fair settlement! Your team goes above and beyond.

Top Notch
I highly recommend Knafo Law Offices for any injury or accident litigation. Attorney Jerry Knafo is honest with you right from the start. He shares his down to earth attitude and approach, his fees, and his expectations. After your first meeting, you know that he is on your side and is willing to fight for your settlement. Your case will be handled in a caring and professional manner by everyone in the office. Christine Moser is a gem. She is thorough and dedicated, prompt and friendly, always there to answer any questions and guide you through the process. Jerry and his team negotiated an incredible settlement for us, beyond our expectations. I know it was Jerry’s knowledge, experience and skills which secured such a successful outcome.

Look nowhere else!
Jerry Knafo and his staff are fantastic. Out of all of the lawyers I reached out to - he was not only the most personable, but also was the only attorney to believe in my case ( and did he perform well? he 100% exceeded my expectations). Easy, simple, direct and completed quickly! Ps. His paralegal Melissa, is utterly the best!

Dog bite
Jerry has helped my family in the past and when I received a phone call at work that my daughter had been in a near fatal accident the only thing on my mind was my little girl and the last thing I was thinking about was getting a lawyer but I knew that I needed one that I could trust and that would do right by my family and the only logical choice at that point in time was knafo law

Best in the Business
Attorney Knafo and his team are the best in the business. He treats you like family, takes the time to listen to your concerns, and does his due diligence to make sure you leave satisfied. Even if Jerry is not able to help you himself, he will point you in the right direction of someone that can. Jerry is not only a phenomenal attorney, but he is a great friend and someone you want on your side! Best believe that you are in the right hands with Jerry.

Personal Injury
Had a great experience with this attorney. He is very easy and pleasant to talk to and takes his time to listen. He offered me free consultation and fought for my case without backing out. I hope I won't have to deal with any person injuries in the future, but he is definitely the attorney I will go to if needed and refer family/friends. Thank you for helping me out Knafo Law Offices.

Attorney Jerry Knafo represented me well, in fact, exceeded my expectations. His stellar legal expertise and integrity coupled with his ability to communicate and listen, provided me with much comfort during these past two years; essentially, I was stress-free.

FANTASTIC ATTORNEY
I originally worked with Attorney Jerry Knafo about 9 years ago. He and his team, especially Christine Moser, have been so helpful to both me and my family during some of our most difficult times throughout the years. I admire Attorney Knafo and his hard work and impeccable ability to empathize with his clients in order to maximize their deserved and desired results. He gives great advice and is a great man in general. Both Christine Moser and Jerry Knafo were both patient with me, and understanding of my needs and I couldn't have asked for better service. If you need an attorney. I highly recommend Knafo from personal experience 10/10. He does what the other guys can't for us hard working citizens of PA. Thank you again !!
