  • Natalie Berkowitz

    Dec 21 2019 Although my case was arduous and at times grueling, after 8 years with attorneys, it came to an end. The outcome was far different from what it would have been had I dealt with the insurance company directly the first time I went to a hearing. Workman's Compensation is tedious, hideous and not meant for an average person to navigate. Insurance companies will slowly rape you without legal representation. I recommend Ghitterman, Ghitterman & Feld as they did accomplish what they set out to do in spite of the length of time it took to reach the end game. For each client, I suggest they find out the potential steps, time lines and follow up/advocate for themselves as some of the legal navigation(s) are mind bending. The legal system for Workman's Comp is set to benefit the insured business, not the injured employee. With this in mind, make sure you are in it for the long haul. Workman's Comp will never make you whole and the psychology of the 'game' is to get the past employee to bow out. I am not sure if any attorney can make this experience pleasant so my advice would be to simply not ever get hurt/injured at work.

  • Kathy Geniesse

    Aug 11 2019 Benjamin Feld was amazing! I should have retained him for my OWCP case also. I had been out of work and money for almost a year. Mr. Feld got me my SSDI in 2 month on contingency, which was greatly appreciated! That was 2 years faster than the nightmares that every hears about. I was crying! It was a miracle! I am so thankful and grateful!!! Thank You so much Benjamin Feld!!! Sincerely, Kathy L Geniesse

    Apr 30 2019 I have to a big high 5 to Nancy in reception and Liz who was my caseworker before Rose. Liz would rarely miss my calls and by chance she did i always received a call back within a day and usually the same day. I will say Rose is getting a little better. Still waiting for list of items discussed and any progress report.

    Apr 29 2019 Armando Di Filippo has been proactive and kept me informed every step of the way. He has made a very stressful situation easier to navigate due to his expertise.

    • Kaylen Steele

  • Russ Singer R.N

    Apr 05 2019 I work at another firm, doing other kinds of law. I get calls all the time from people who want me to get them connected to specific Ghitterman, Ghitterman & Feld Attorney's. The most common reason given is the "human connection" people feel with these attorneys. As a registered nurse for over 30 years I understand why. Injured workers are a vulnerable and growing segment of our population, who are dealing with a dehumanizing system. They are in chronic pain, frustrated, scared. They can't think straight. They have spent their whole lives "honest Joes" working, paying taxes, caring for their families. Now they are treated as a "financial liability," and they don't know where to turn. In a difficult environment Ghitterman and company gets it. Showing people you care when they feel powerless gives them hope, and that is the first step to ending their crisis and helping them to move on with their lives.
    • Kaylen Steele

      Apr 08 2019Russ, thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review. And we are so encouraged to hear that our colleagues and clients know and feel cared for!

We hope that each and every client feels that and has the help they need during such a challenging time.
  • CR

    Mar 25 2019 I can't say enough about Ben Feld. His knowledge, expertise and willingness to help all contributed to resolving a lawsuit quickly and smoothly. As his client, I couldn't be happier with the level of service I received from Ben and his staff.
    • Kaylen Steele

      Mar 25 2019Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review, CR! We are pleased to hear you have had a good experience with Ben and our team.

  • JD

    Feb 18 2019 I have worked with 3 of the attorneys here and they fight for your rights and for human dignity. I wouldn't recommend anyone else for this area of law. They know the law backwards and forwards and are very professional. They are very kind but also will not back down and will be as aggressive as they need to to get the job done. Five stars all the way.
    • Kaylen Steele

      Feb 18 2019JD, thank you so much for taking the time to provide feedback. We are so glad to hear that you have had a positive experience with our firm.
  • Ghassan El-Andari

    Feb 14 2019 The best attorneys. Very knowledgeable And Highly recommend. Elizabeth Sugmad (My caseworker) kept me updated during every step of my case. She calmed my nerves and made me feel that only my best interests were on her agenda. She's the best. My only concern is that I don't have enough thumbs to give more thumbs up for their services.
    • Kaylen Steele

      Feb 17 2019Thank you for your kind words, Ghassan! So glad to hear Liz is taking good care of you.
  • LL

    Feb 05 2019 Trying to understand the facts and ongoing developments in my legal case were beyond my scope of everyday knowledge. I am thankful that I found the wonderful attorneys at Ghitterman, Ghitterman and Feld. Their expertise in all areas was immediately apparent, they treated me with kindness and compassion, and case and court details were explained to me along the way. The staff at this firm is patient, knowledgable as well, and returns phone calls and email quickly. Without hesitation, contact this firm immediately for great communication, honest evaluations, and wonderful results. Ghitterman, Ghitterman and Feld are the very best you can hire.

  • Tristan Oliver

    Jan 26 2019 My case took 8 years to resolve due to a broken worker's compensation system. While my settlement was worth a lot to me it cost Ghitterman Ghitterman & Feld more to represent me than my case was worth. Because of this I will always be grateful for thier support and commitment to helping someone like me to finally get a resolution that was fair. Thank you!
    • Kaylen Steele

    Jul 02 2018 As my attorney I believe that they are very knowledgeable in worker's compensation law and make every effort to help you and process you through you're case. They've just moved their Bakersfield Office into a house on 20th Street and the room size is extremely better with a great atmosphere. Thanks to all of you at Ghitterman, Ghitterman & Feld for your advice and hard work on my case.
