Gabe is the BEST!
Our family was referred to Miller Kory Rowe after the sudden loss of our mom at an assisted living facility. Gabe Kory and his team were true professionals in every sense of the word. The MKR team treated our family and our mother’s memory with respect and dignity. Gabe’s passion for his work and protecting the elderly was apparent after our first conversation. Gabe’s knowledge of the law was evident in the manner which he pursued our case, ultimately resulting in a settlement we were extremely satisfied with. Gabe and his team were incredibly patient as we navigated this process, while at the same time, mourning our mother and the unacceptable manner in which she passed. No settlement will ever bring back our beloved mom/grandma, but with MKR’s assistance, we sent the defendants a very strong message and obtained justice for our mom. Our family cannot express how much we appreciate Gabe, Michele, and the whole MKR team. We are so grateful. We highly recommend Gabe Kory and the MKR Law Firm.

Gabe is now honorary family. The best.
My mother died unexpectedly due to nursing home neglect. We turned to local authorities, whose investigation of the facility unearthed some information, but we still didn't have all of the answers our family needed as we grieved my Mom's death. We did a Google search for attorneys who.work with elder neglect/abuse and wrongful death cases. We had never worked with an attorney before, so we didn't know what to expect. From the first time I called, to the resolution of our case a few years later, the staff at MWK were amazing. I can't speak highly enough of their compassion, professionalism, and support for my family. Gabe was a champion for us. He was as compassionate as he was relentless on our behalf. He explained complex issues in a way we could understand, and we never doubted for a moment that he had our family's best interests at heart. Whether he was speaking with me or with my 88 year old father about the case, he was kind, available, respectful, and transparent. This is clearly not just a job for Gabe. He deeply cares about the well being of his clients (and vulnerable older adults), and takes each case personally. He is brilliant, strategic, knowledgeable, and committed to his clients. He is a skilled attorney and a wonderful human being. I can't speak highly enough about Gabe, or the partners and staff working with him. I don't have adequate words to describe how grateful we are that we found - and enlisted the help of - Gabriel Kory. I will always be grateful for how he fought on behalf of my family as we grieved the loss of my Mom. We will always consider him an honorary family member. He is one of a kind, and I recommend him wholeheartedly.

Best attorney ever
Gave is a wonderful attorney as well as a person. He was very honest and up front with me from the beginning. This was our first time ever dealing with an attorney as well as starting a law suit. Gabe walked us through everything step by step. He kept us informed all along the way. He and his staff were very professional as well as friendly. They never forgot that we were people as well as their clients. I strongly encourage any one who has a problem with nursing homes or assisted living facilities or any abuse of the elderly to contact him. Even if no other attorney will talk with u, call Gabe as he will listen and let u know if he can help u. As he did with me. Other attorneys would not hear my concerns, gave did and he got us a settlement that I never would of dreamed of. Wonderland attorney as well as person. I would recommend Gabe whole heartedly.

Highly Recommend Gabriel Kory as a Attorney in Phoenix
Gabriel was extremely helpful in our attorney needs and really broke down the stigma of lawyers. He helped in making the right decisions not just the emotional decisions. His diligence through the process was very appreciated and his advice was always on point.

Sensitive to your needs
In what could be described as painful since it was an elder abuse situation involving a family member, I couldn't have asked for a better advocate than Gabe Kory. He was able to build a relationship with our family that fostered trust, providing a safe environment which allowed us to speak candidly. Gabe was knowledgeable, sharing his expertise and carefully advising us throughout the process. I would highly recommend Gabe Kory and seek his assistance again.

Repectful, responsible, ethical attorney
Mr. Kory was exactly the man to handle our abuse case. He treated us with the utmost respect and concern through the whole process. He was willing to take it all the way to the judge, but was able to negotiate a very reasonable settlement on our behalf. His dedication to protecting the elderly was obvious from the moment we met him. I wouldn't use another lawyer in Arizona now that I know the level of professionalism displayed from the entire staff.

Gabe Kory
Gabe Kory handled a wrongful death case for us. We live in Colorado and only spoke to Gabe and his staff over the phone. At once he made us feel comfortable. He was the best. He was very knowledgeable,trustworthy,friendly,helpful, confident. He was there for us to answer questions and walk us through every part of the case. I completely trusted him and knew he was making the right choices for us. I would hire him a again in a heartbeat! Too bad he lives in. Arizona and we live in Colorado. I did get to meet him in person and we still stay in contact even though the case is over. He won by the way! Thanks Gabe for all your dedication and commitment!

"Gabe is one of the best attorneys and I feel fortunate to have the pleasure of working with him on nursing home abuse and neglect cases. Gabe is a brilliant attorney, but even more importantly, he cares about his clients on a personal level. He fights for his clients and he cares for them. If I ever had a close friend of family member need a nursing home abuse and neglect attorney, I would give Gabe a call. Endorsements do not come stronger than that."

Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I think Gabe Kory is the best lawyer in Arizona handling nursing home abuse and neglect matters. I've heard many judges and lawyers comment that he is the best-prepared advocate they've seen. He does a remarkable job for his clients."
Nursing home abuse and neglect Attorney | Apr 22
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Nursing home abuse cases are usually factually complex, document intensive cases. Not every personal injury attorney is equipped to litigate these cases, however, Gabe does an excellent job. If a potential client comes into my office and I cannot accept the case due to a conflict or my current active case load, I highly recommend to that individual that he or she contact Gabe."
