A complicated case with a simple outcome
I had a very complicated commercial traffic case involving an unusually aggressive NHP officer. Joe took the case on and worked thru the officers BS and got me a fair and just result. He has a great office staff that is very helpful also. I would definitely look to him again if needed.

Great Attorney
We found Mr. Gersten through a friend and asked him to review a contract for us. Joe was extremely responsive and pointed out quite a few areas that were not in our best interests. Thankfully Joe was able to assist in getting our contract modified. It was beneficial to have the experience that Mr. Gersten has on your side. I would highly recommend Mr. Gersten for your legal needs.

Joe has helped me out with several business-related issues. (Contracts, business formation, etc.) He's knowledgeable and a hard worker, but still very personable, unlike most lawyers.
