Compassionate and responsive
My father was in a 3-car accident (not his fault and received the worst injuries) which put him in the shock-trauma i.c.u. for a month. The first day of the accident I was receiving a numerous amount of phone calls from the person who caused the accidents ins. co. I immediately decided I need help and a friend highly recommended Mr. Katz. After speaking with Mr. Katz, (whom was so compassionate) told me to stay focused on my father and his firm will handle all the ugly phone calls, etc. Mr. Katz's parralegal, Christina,took over from there and she was OUTSTANDING!. Any time I received any phonecalls or any kind of paperwork relating to my father's accident, Christina handled it. I was absolutely amazed at how easy she made this difficult situation for my father and I. I'm am so grateful for all that she's done and recommend this law firm in a heartbeat. If your as lucky as we were to have Christina handling all the hard stuff, you have an angel on your side. Kudos to this firm and especially to Christina!

So Thankful!
My husband was in a car accident back in February (not his fault) and I was so nervous to deal with the insurance companies since I'm so "soft". It was recommended to call Mr. Katz office and I'm glad I did! Our parralegal, Kristen took care of all those calls with the other insurance company and thankfully she is not "soft". When we were getting close to the end, they wanted to offer us a certain amount and I am so thankful for Mr. Krats, Kristen and the team because we got more then we expected. They faught for my husband and definitely impressed me. So thankful for all their time and hard work they put in our case! Highly recommend.

Mr. Katz went above and beyond my expectations. Although I was looking for a different type of representation. Mr Katz gave me legal advice within his scope. Allowing me to make a major decision to advance my case forward. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking for an ATTY. Thank you for taking the time !

A Great Team
Last December I was in a motor vehicle accident where my car was hit by another driver who wasn't paying attention. I retained the Law Firm of Bob Katz to fight for my compensation. Though the pandemic kept us from ever meeting face to face, they stayed in touch with me and handled my case in a prompt and courteous manner. The lady which I corresponded with regularly was extremely kind and caring. My case was settled with great satisfaction and I would recommend their Law Firm to anyone.

Very Professional
I am delighted to recommend Robert Katz and his team. Because of his diligence and perseverance, my wife received a much larger settlement for her accident than we had been expecting. A true professional.

Fabulous Firm!
They made the process of recovering from my accident easy. I was able to focus on getting back to myself while they handled everything. Christina was amazing. She made sure I was informed throughout the claim. She even got the final offer from the insurance company increased. Definitely recommend them!

Smooth process and successful ending
I was in so much pain and wasn't sure what to do. I contacted Mr. Katz office and they began working on my case immediately. I was able to get the best medical care and the support I needed. Marisa helped me through the entire process. I appreciate her patience while I was emotional and in pain. She followed up quickly and never made me feel like I was bothering her with my issues. She made this experience wonderful and I recommend this office to anyone who has been involved in a car accident. I didn't have to worry about anything except getting my body back to where it was before the accident. They made all the calls and gave me any information I needed. I don't ever want to be rear ended again, but if so, I will be contacting them again. I still can't believe how smooth and easy the process was.

Patrick Matovu Road Accident Injured Client.
The fact that there's great Communication via email,telephone, and text. Gordon Feinblatt LLC,earns my 5 ⭐s[5 stars]. When Rebecca S.,(assigned Paralegal to my case),was out of Office,she Immediately communicated,and referred me to Erica Z,(Paralegal),as the interim to goto,personell,incase I had any questions backed by another associate Christina L.,according to the emails. So I always felt a sense of Comfort in this level of responsibility displayed by the LawFirm Associates. Now, as my case progresses; Esq. Young,Meghan has continually given me encouraging news about the progress thereof,and a good closure is Highly Anticipated. Bravo Bob Katz.

Awesome representation
This was by far the easiest attorney experience I've had!!! Literally the only thing I had to do after my auto accident was retain Bob Katz' firm and get better. No back and forth missed communication and a larger than expected settlement!!! It was a win win all the way around.

Successful Personal Injury Case
I feel really confident to recommend lawyer Robert Katz and his legal team to represent your personal injury case. Lawyer Allan Serrano was pretty honest with me about my case from the beginning and did not create fake expectations. My paralegal Erica Ziervogel fought fearlessly and strong to win my case and she succeeded. Edithmari kept me posted about my case progress all the time, and she was always friendly, polite and helpful. I cannot be more happier and satisfied with the outcome.
