Mike is smart, clever & resourceful. He kept me informed of facts, updates & gave me options. I never could have won my lawsuit without him & his team of lawyers. He is well-connected & on top of things. I cannot say enough about how much I appreciate his strength, knowledge & positive attitude. He is tenacious. He knows the law backwards & forwards. Thanks to Mike for winning my case & helping me get through a tough time in my life. After going through a long, legal battle I think of Mike as a friend as well as my attorney.

A few years ago I was at the lowest point in my life. I could barely function. Despite medical evidence of my disability, I was denied benefits. That is when I went to Mr. Gertner for help. He gave me words of encouragement, and told me to continue to document ongoing medical treatment. He told me not to give up, and that he would continue to fight for me for as long as it took. I was impressed by the amount of experience that Mr. Gertner had.
The first disability judge to hear my case was very unfair. He discarded information from my doctor, and Mr. Gertner discovered other errors in this judge's decision. Mr. Gertner wrote a careful and convincing argument to the appeals council, and got me another hearing before a different judge! When Mr. Gertner presented all the information (he had spent months of work on my case), the new judge made a bench decision right then and there that she was making a favorable decision on my claim! Mr. Gertner never gave up on me or on my case. He was reassuring and told me that he would keep working for me, and he did. He was my lifeline throughout this difficult ordeal. His legal assistant Sheri was wonderful too. She was friendly, competent, and kind and never seemed to tire of my frequent questions and calls. As a result of Mr. Gertner's efforts I feel like I can finally breathe again. It really is like you are holding your breath while you wait for help that you desperately need to live. I would highly recommend this experienced, caring, and hardworking attorney.

Michael is a smart and experienced attorney who does not back down easily from a challenge. He taught me so much about effective law practice and building strong professional relationships. He also cares deeply about his clients and his colleagues; few lawyers make themselves available to their clients to the extent that Michael does. His combination of sophisticated legal prowess and unrelenting dedication to his clients is what makes him stand out in the legal community. I highly recommend him.
