PROFICIENT AND HONEST ATTORNEY
After speaking to three random attorneys about my bank account being compromised and the issue being quite old, I simply gave up the idea of obtaining an attorney for help. I now was dealing with a judgment against me and bank garnishments that wouldn’t quit. I called Atty. Gary Schafkopf and after speaking to him, I felt empowered to start the process to get this issue resolved. He was quickly understanding of my issues and explained my options. Immediately, I knew he was the right lawyer for me. He got the judgment lifted, cleared my name and had my funds returned to me. He won my case in record time. He remained reachable and was without delay. I will certainly, without hesitation, strongly recommend Attorney Gary Schafkopf to anyone seeking a proficient and honest attorney. I am finally and permanently free of bank garnishments and this injustice thanks to my new attorney. Job well done.

Made big positive impact for my NJ business
My business distributes imported fashion products and one of my long-term suppliers unexpectedly cut me off. They would not even talk to me anymore, but they did listen to Gary. The relation was re-established and merchandise is finally in stock again. Big thank you to Gary Schafkopf!

Strong Advocate, Compassionate and Caring.
When I first spoke with Gary about my case, I was extremely unsure of myself. Gary and his partner were extremely kind and committed to obtaining justice for me. Gary was unwavering in his support and diligent efforts to obtain the best results possible for me, encouraging me when I was ready to give up, and fighting for me up to the very last minute. I would HIGHLY recommend Gary. Because of his help, now I can heal.

Commercial Lease review
Attorney Gary Schafkopf conducted a commercial lease review and helped with a new business entity. Mr. Schafkopf reviewed and gave helpful and professional advice in a complex lease negotiation. Every little attention to detail was covered. I wasn’t transferred to a paralegal. He is sincere and extremely knowledgeable.

Responsive, Reliable, Reasonable, and Practical
Gary is an excellent lawyer who helps keep difficult issues in perspective. He has accomplished excellent results in several difficult situations. I can count on him to find a practical solution and negotiate a fair and equitable deal. I appreciate that he tries to solve problems rather than prolong problems. I always feel like he is on my side and not trying to increase the fees. I highly recommend Gary Schafkopf.

PROBABLY THE MOST HONEST, STRAIGHTEST AND FORTHRIGHT ATTORNEY IN PHILA METRO
I've given Gary multiple jobs/cases to take care of over the past couple of years, along with referrals of close friends and associates. He is extremely knowledgeable, reasonable on his prices, easy to get along with, and ALWAYS goes the extra mile to make the deal the best he can for the client. I would easily recommend him for all facets of business/corporate law, real estate, collections, contract law, and more.

| Consulted Attorney
Irresponsible
The attorney was contacted for a free consultation. He called after 8 PM, was briefly explained the employment related issue and asked to send him the documents. A week later he called again. It was obvious h did not red the documents sent. He asked to explain his what the case was about and stated that he would call in another week if he is interested. With all that, he was explained at the start that the time frame to filing the suit was limited. The way he handled the matter was irresponsible. No consultation was given as promised, and his communication style was inappropriate.

Warning: just save yourself the migraine
We had the unfortunate experience of dealing with this firm after our small business was affected by the pandemic. We own multiple restaurants that were shut down during COVID and simply ran out of money. We thought it was a blessing at first dealing with Gary and Matt Weisberg but soon realized the nightmare we got ourselves into. Out of desperation for our claims we signed a 50 percent contingency agreement. Not a problem. We understood the risk and situation. But when you are promised an experienced attorney and a well-staffed firm to handle your various complex litigations, you feel a bit scammed when all you get is led in circles. Hiring Gary and Weisberg Law has been almost as stressful as losing our businesses. They are rude, understaffed, and simply out for quick easy settlements so they can cash in. They want to expend the least amount of energy on your case to easily cash in on your misfortune. They act as though once they are hired, they are beyond reproach. They switch to being responsive and attentive during the engagement signing phase and then you don’t hear from them for weeks. You might get a random frantic email or call once a deadline is minutes away to recap you already told some other attorney who apparently was just a salesman to land your case. What a racket and something you’d expect from an ambulance chasing - loud arrogant injury attorney from a late-night commercial. Run far away from Weisberg's racket.

Mishandled Case
I engaged this attorney to handle a small-claims case for me where I was the plaintiff. The day before the court date, he informed me that he was handing the case off to his associate for trial. The associate appeared in court totally unfamiliar with the facts of my case and unprepared for trial, and allowed the defendant to propagate false claims against me without objection. The merits of my case were never properly presented and we lost the case.
