Help in difficult times
I was involved in a car accident that left me in a wheelchair, unable to work and worried how I was going to deal with everything that was happening. A friend recommended Mrs. Kravitz and said she would handle my case and help me figure out the myriad of worries I had. I met Jovita and was immediately impressed with her professionalism. Equally important to me I was simply impressed with her as a person. I suppose any attorney is capable of doing the legal side; I was worried about being treated as another number by an attorney. With Jovita that was nor ever has been the case. She was empathetic as well as knowledgeable which personally was important to me. My case settled in what I felt was a timely fashion all things considered. Additionally, I was happy with the settlement Jovita was able to obtain for me. Further, even though I'm no longer her client she took the time to follow up and ask how I was doing after recovering from my injuries. That gesture was greatly appreciated. I hope I never again need the services of an attorney but if I do I would hire Jovita again without hesitation.

Detailed, thorough and caring
Jovita Kravitz handled our case with personal care and attention. When my husband was hit by a car while riding his motorcycle, not only did we have to deal with and worry about his recovery and the intensity of his injuries but to top it all off the driver of the car was irate, unreasonable and just downright rude. Jovita was professional, prompt and courteous. But beyond that she was sensitive to the emotional turmoil my husband and I were both in and handle her case with care as well as speed. We highly recommend Jovita and have since referred her to numerous friends and family members who ever all had excellent experiences using her legal services.

Personal, Strong, and Knowledgeable Representation
I retained the services of the Kravitz Law Firm as the Personal Representative for a family member. From the first visit with Jovita, I was impressed with the amount of time she spent with us, knowledge of the numerous legal issues at hand, and the level of compassion she showed to and for our loved one. At a time in which we were dealing with great sadness, grief, numerous medical situations, and of course raw emotions, Jovita was patient, walked us through the process every step of the way, and answered our numerous questions and concerns. Jovita and the Kravitz Law Firm communicated with us in a timely manner and provided a level of personal care and legal background that was much appreciated. Our case was well represented with powerful expert witness testimony and effective research. Jovita was extremely knowledgeable in the many facets of our case and defended our loved one in truth. She was determined in defending our case and her defense of our loved one commanded attention due to her effective delivery. Justice prevailed for our loved one and I am grateful to Jovita and the Kravitz Law Firm for their patience, diligent work, and their personal support of our case.
