Nothing short of amazing.
Wow. What can I say. Ms. Tennen is truly a remarkable addition to the lawyer world. She has a very unique way of getting things done. She was my lawyer for my criminal case and saved me a whole lot of heartache not to mention jail time. She was patient and understanding the whole way through and I cannot thank her enough for this.

Tremendous Results
I hired Gina of LibertyBell Law Group and couldn't have picked a better attorney to represent me. Without going into specifics, I needed legal defense for an alleged crime, and they were my first call. They got me off ahead of trial and had all charges dismissed. Highly recommended!

Amazing civil department
I hired LibertyBell Law Group for a civil case and I coudn't be happier. Annick handled my case and won. After the case was over I was still having trouble collecting from the Defendant and she guided me on the next steps to enforce my Judgment. I will definitely use this law firm again. Highly recommend. Thank you Gina T and your staff.

Very happy with Liberty Bell Law Group
I was rear ended pretty badly with my infant daughter in the car and needed a lawyer to assist in my insurance claim. Nancy at Liberty Bell went above and beyond to assist in the tedious process of dealing with the different insurance companies, physical therapists and mechanic shops. I honestly would have been lost without their help and would have spent a lot of money out of pocket. Everyone at Liberty Bell was so accommodating and took control of the entire process for me. Highly recommend!

Externally grateful
I was accused of rape and I put myself in that situation. I went to a strip club and met a girl. We decided to exchange numbers and meet privately outside the club. Over lunch hour one weekday, after retriving some money from the bank to pay her, we went to a hotel and had sex. Dropped her off after and went back to work. A couple weeks later, while at a business conference with my wife, a very pissed off female detective called me and requested that I come back to town and to the police station. I could hear that I was in trouble and my heart dropped. Instead of doing what the detective requested I turned to the internet and looked for an attorney to represent me. I've seen enough dummies on 48 Hours to know that you don't go into a police station for questioning without an attorney. Anyway, while searching I came across 3 attorneys and called them all. I visited two of them. I loved the name of one of them the Innocence Legal Team or somethjbg like that and Liberty Law Group. I actually liked them both but there was a spirit about Liberty's website and her in person that I couldn't deny. I hired her immediately and Gena stopped the detective from calling me, set up the appointment and brought in another attorney with her to the station to speak with the detective on my behalf. A short time later my case was dropped completely. When she called to tell me this I just cried. Literally. Here I am with a wonderful wife, beautiful children and a career to die for. Being arrested for rape, going to trial for rape, being convicted of rape would have ruined me. And to think, Gena believed that I was innocent the entire time. At the same time, she was honest about the fact that I was wrong for even being in this situation. Let's just say I learned two lessons... 1. Do do things that can ruin your life and 2. When you are stupid enough to do so hire Gena her team at Liberty to help you learn the moral lesson and protect you from people who will take advantage of you and even attempt to ruin your life and the lives of those that you love the most.

Gina Will Get You The Best Possible Result
In my case, I was under investigation and I was sure I would be going to Federal Prison soon. I was so sure that I was reading the prison manual and the commissary list. I was looking at books about prison and trying to prepare for what I thought I was in for. Gina promised to work hard to get me the best possible result and she delivered on that promise! In my case, I was lucky enough that NO CHARGES were filed at all! Gina saved my life! I still have a clean record, I can spend the holidays with my family and I can enjoy all the freedoms that so many of us take for granted every day. I have made a few regrettable decisions in my life but hiring Gina was one of the best decisions I've ever made. If you have been charged or are under investigation, I cannot recommend anyone more highly than Gina! I understand the stress is incredible (almost unbearable) because I've been there and you need experienced, highly competent representation: Gina is the right choice.

A Dark Cloud Lifted
I had never had an encounter with the law until a young white college freshman from South Carolina falsely accused me of assaulting in NY. Barely anybody seemed to listen or believe me. I felt so devastated - until I spoke to Ms Gina Tennen. She recorded the FACTS, then skillfully and professionally presented to the prosecutor. She is very intuitive to your legal needs, calmly communicates a strategic way forward. With time, the grossly exaggerated claims unravelled - just as Gina's proposed plan was in motion. Liberty Law Bell staff built a rapport with me, followed upon my numerous requests and kept me and my family informed throughout the entire process. In recognition of Gina T's preparation, persistence and personality, the false claims were dropped and the case against me was dismissed!! I strongly recommend Gina Tennen and network of legal consultants at Liberty Law!

I highly recommend Gina Tennen
What distinguishes a good lawyer from a great Laywer is not necessarily their understanding of the law but rather their understanding of people. Gina Rochelle Tennen is a unique example of one who deeply understands both. For a year she guided me through my father's federal case. She was always very patient with my mother and I when explaining all matters concerning my father's legal troubles. Even when she was out of state she would make time to address any concern we would have in regards to my father. If she did not know the answer to our questions she would quickly obtain the information for us. She was always honest and upfront with us. My father was facing over 80 years of prison time, and with him being over the age of 60 the thought of him never coming out again became a very scary reality. Gina went against all odds and really fought tooth and nail for my father. Thanks to her Tenacity my father will be able to hold his grandson in his arms and be a free man again. And one can not put a price on freedom. For this main reason I will always be grateful to Gina and her team. And even though my father's case has been wrapped up she continues to be available to my family and I, still addressing concerns that come up with my father's legal troubles. A Laywer that goes beyond their call of duty is very rare these days. Gina's passion makes her a Laywer that does just that. If it were not for her and her team's willingness to fight against the odds I may never have opportunity to give my father a hug again. But thanks to her I will.

Absolutely Amazing!
I am so grateful to Gina and her team of lawyers. She was able to get my case dismissed. She was very responsive and always kept me in the loop of what was going on with my case. I'm sure with any other attorney I would not have received the same results. Gina and her whole staff are great! They all truly cared about my situation and was always there for me. Thank You Liberty Bell Law Group, You guys are the best!!

She got my case dismissed and I am very happy to move on with my life!
I am so grateful to Gina and everyone at her firm for their work. They expressed genuine concern for me and my family and we're always there for us to lead us through the very difficult time. I really felt relieved by their communication as it gave us more confidence in what they were doing. I would recommend her to anyone. I called around before I hired them and they were more expensive but sometimes you get what you pay for and I needed the best attorney cause i had some pretty serious charges. I literally owe my life to them.
