The Absolute Best
Yigal Bander represented me in a personal injury case about a year ago. I could not have been more happy with his work, he was always open to communication, worked around my complicated schedule, excelled in providing realistic timelines, and was extremely well prepared. He also excelled in making me feel secure and prepared in every step of the process. I could not be more thankful to him and the team over at Manasseh and Gill.

You will NOT be disappointed in Mr. Bander!
I contacted Mr. Bander concerning a civil matter where a contractor had taken over 13,000.00 from me and refused to complete my work or refund any of my money. From the initial consultation all the way to the end of the trial, Mr. Yigal paid utmost attention to every detail I told him (and boy, I can ramble) concerning my case. He is VERY PATIENT, kind, understanding and thorough. He was extremely confident and made me feel very comfortable. I never felt rushed when I spoke to him and he was very punctual in returning calls and/or emails. I knew from day one that I hired him, that I had made the right decision in an attorney. He is very laid back and down to earth and makes you feel that your case is #1 !! I love that!! He even opened his office on a football weekend to accommodate my schedule which is almost unheard of! You will definitely not be disappointed in hiring him!! BTW, HE WON OUR CASE!!

Bander is the Best!
I have been blessed to have Yigal Bander as my defense attorney. He defended me on a licensing board complaint regarding a serious but false allegation. This complaint had resulted in a 3-month suspension of my professional license, with possible full revocation of my license had he not aggressively and expertly defended my innocence. Upon engaging his legal services, Mr. Bander immediately jumped to my defense with strategic action, and he worked tirelessly until the matter was dismissed, and my license was fully restored. Throughout this highly stressful ordeal, he compassionately counseled me to keep strong and hopeful. It is noteworthy that prior to becoming an attorney, Mr. Bander had been a licensed social worker. He genuinely cares. We developed a close working relationship, more like a good friendship than the typical attorney-client relationship. Yigal was always accessible and responsive to my calls, texts and/or emails, and very attentive to my concerns. Without his awesome defense, I know that I would likely no longer be in practice, which would have been personally devastating to me. I highly recommend Yigal and without any reservation. 5-stars just aren’t enough to convey the quality and effectiveness of his services. Bander is simply the Best!

Excellent Legal Representation
I was very impressed with the legal representation for my consumer rights case. Initially I was skeptical due to the Criminal, Personal Injury and Educational Rights background of Mr. Yigal Bander. However, his consultation showed a very astute, confident and quality lawyer with extensive legal knowledge, so I chose his representation. There are no regrets after communicating with Mr Bander, as he walked me thru my case and answered all questions without a hitch. I was never out of the loop with my case, nor did I have to chase him for response. Which made him humanistic, and not just a legal dictionary. What I appreciate the most about Mr. Bander is his responsive nature to return my calls, and his dedication to my case from beginning to end. I never felt like just a number. "I was a real client." At times the stress level of case took a toll on me, but after talking with Mr. Yigal Bander, I became relieved. He showed outstanding intellect and explained legalities about my case from both, a win or lose perspective. Although, I never had to show in court, I decided to sit in on a hearing to watch Mr Bander in action. I left even more confident, and saw a man who gave all he had to my case. Never did I attend another hearing, and after a lengthy litigation process, I am proud to announce that my case was dismissed. Kudos to Mr. Bander, I highly recommend his legal expertise. If you want a well qualified and experienced attorney, "Yigal Bander is one of the BEST!"

Very Compassionate and Understanding
Mr. Bander was recommended to me through another law firm and he did not disappoint. He was very informative and always kept me abreast of the progress of my case. I will and have recommended him to others and if the need arises, I will use him again.

Professional and Thorough
Mr. Bander assisted in my medical recovery following every step to ensure that my medical issues were properly addressed. His compassion for my recovery outweighed the monetary compensation. He is a true fighter and a friend!

A Fighter For You
Yigal Bander is a knowledgeable, intelligent, compassionate, and passionate fighter for his clients. He truly "feels" them. I felt quite secure knowing he was representing me during a tumultuous and emotional legal battle. Again, this man is a fighter.

Peace of Mind
Mr. Yigal Bander was a pleasure to work with and instantly made us feel we could trust him to look out for our best interest. He made a very unpleasant situation more bearable with his knowledge of how the insurance system works. He quickly responded any time we had questions. There was never a time that we wondered if he was on the job; always on top of things and kept us informed, updated. Mr. Bander obviously knows how to get the job done quickly, efficiently and to the benefit of his client.
