He tells you that you he will get you a whole lot of money but never give you any figuresl, until the case is so far gone. It is almost impossible to get another lawyer to take over the case. I felt that I was force into settle my case, because if I had not settle the Money that was offered to me was used up in depositions,ect'.All the time I thought the deposition was part of this lawsuit itself. I still regret settling my case to this day, Because of the medical problems that I have to live with the rest of my life the little money that was offered to me do not justify what I have to go through for the rest of my life. Total Depresses!!

he did not wait for all the medical facts and injuries to come out before an evaluation hearing. was told to accept the settlement, or risk losing the case and go bankrupt if it goes to trial. 4 months later i had cervical surgery, i need lumbar surgery next and shoulder surgery all from the car accident. i have nerve damage for the rest of my life and cannot return to work ever. i will loose hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost wages alone not to mention the pain and suffering i will have for the rest of my life. i don't feel he's up to par for handling complex injuries sustained from auto accidents or there was a personality problem, i don't know what the problem was but i know this he's a terrible listener and communicator. he didn't even know if i was of work or not. that's very important info that a lawyer should know. we kept his office up to date on every thing that was going on with me yet it seemed like they where lost when it came time for the hearing. 2 weeks before the hearing i was diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy as a result from traumatic spondylopathy of the cervical region as a result from the car accident and also the lumbar region same diagnoses. why wasn't the hearing put on hold until further medical evidence came out. because of what i feel was a very unprofessional manner in the way my case was handled i fell into depression, we have suffered financially and emotionally. i was never out to get rich i just wanted what i had lost. i hope this helps.

Mr. Gittleman is a no nonsense guy that had a lot of good settlements. He got me a lot of money for my dental injury, way more than I thought. I was sent to him by a different lawyer and learned he is the lawyer for dental cases. He was short with me but very busy. The best thing was he knows what he is talking about with dentist injurys and got my settlement quickly.
