My life has been dedicated to the representation and recovery of compensation for those who need it the most—this includes (1) rape victims for their injuries; (2) widows and orphans who have had their inheritance stolen; (3) long-term disabled and social security benefits for the disabled when their benefits have been wrongfully denied; (4) those wrongfully injured by the negligence of others. Everyone has a purpose in life and this is mine: I represent those who can’t help themselves, and I do justice one case at a time. This is my purpose, this is my life. I do justice one case at a time.

"I am sitting here still trying to take it in that the Judge has given me an award...and that it was even on the day of my hearing! Every time I think about it, a wave of relief comes over me and I can hardly believe it is true. I remember how dejected I felt after getting my initial unfavorable decision. I felt like giving up, but when I was frightened, you reassured me. Knowing that you were not going to give up on my case gave me hope that was like a life-line for me in the difficult year that followed. I know that you had to have written an excellent appeal on my behalf for the case to be remanded back to a new Administrative Law Judge. I hoped and prayed that this new judge would see the reality of my situation and award me the benefits that I so badly needed. I know that hope and prayer both helped, but that this result would not have been possible without your caring dedication and expertise. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have had your legal representation at such a bleak time in my life. Thank you so much." -Christine B., Social Security Disability Client
Mike Gertner did better than I would have thought possible. He has changed my view on lawyers in general (for the better, of course). He is very communicative, and extremely hardworking. His attention to detail can be astounding at times. -Michael R., Probate Dispute Client
"Mr. Gertner is an excellent lawyer. He is attentive to every detail of your case and is very good at explaining every step of the legal process so that there are no procedural surprises when you are before the judge. When discussing your case in private he tells it like it is, he does not sugar coat anything, or promise something that he knows he cannot deliver. I felt totally confident putting my disability case in his hands, and I would happily recommend the services of Mr.Gertner to anyone."
"Attorney Gertner was conscientious in his efforts to explain various aspects of the Social Security Disability appeal process with particular respect to my situation. He listened to my concerns and answered all my questions about the appeal process. I believe he represented me very well."
"Mr. Gertner provided not only exceptional services, but he and his staff are a very compassionate and professional group of people. I would highly recommend him for a job done thoroughly and well."
