Very Impressed!
I was represented by Jeffrey Lapin and his staff at Lapin Law Offices. What a team!! Any time I had a question, it was answered immediately. If I was sent a form to fill out, all I had to do was mail it in, or drop it off and it was filled out for me. I was constantly informed about what was going on with my case and we were able to settle out of court in a very timely manner. I highly recommend Lapin Law Offices if you ever need anyone to represent you after you have been injured!

"Jeffrey Lapin is a very experienced and skilled attorney who is passionate about his work. He aggressively fights to ensure that his clients get everything to which they're entitled. Many attorneys refuse to go to trial, but this talented trial attorney is not afraid of taking on large insurance companies, hospitals, or any other corporation. Of course, the decision on how to proceed is up to the client, but Jeffrey and his team make it clear that they are always ready to fight in court. They are available 24/7 for their clients, and Jeffrey stays in close contact with the people he's representing, regularly contacting them to see if they need anything and to give them detailed updates on the status of the case. Jeffrey takes the time to answer questions thoroughly and explain all issues pertaining to the case. He is extremely intelligent and compassionate, and he is a strong advocate for people who have been injured, who have had benefits denied, or who have been treated unfairly."
