Client satisfaction, from the knowledge that their attorneys are well-versed in medicine and the law, is best conveyed in their own words....

"I would like to express my sincere gratitude for ensuring that I had the best representation in court with attorney Tom Gerspach. …He provided me with the mental fortitude and preparedness necessary for us to ultimately succeed in court. He was very meticulous, thoughtful, insightful, and set aside the right amount of time to meet with me and prepare for trial beforehand. During the trial, his judgement was excellent, conduct professional, and he was sharp to respond to plaintiff's stratagems. Tom valued my opinions and included me to participate in my own defense…It was truly a pleasure to work with him and a blessing to have him in my corner. I highly recommend Tom for any future claims and individuals in need of superb representation."

"Mr. Gerspach's exemplary performance at trial in outlining the details of the case and creating a framework so that the jury can understand the features of the case was remarkable. I truly feel that Tom is the epitome of a master litigator. He was facile and quick on his feet, able to wax eloquent on the fly. I hope I never get sued again, but if I did I would want Tom to lead my case."
New York State Board Certified General Surgeon - November, 2019

"Faced with what was completely unknown and new to me, I was understandably frightened, concerned, and wary… From the very beginning, when I met Mr. Sikoscow prior to preparing for deposition, he made me feel more comfortable about the entire process. Not only did he walk me through each step, from deposition, trial preparation, and trial, he did so in a way that was sensitive to me...His knowledge, poise, and expertise in developing questions that he felt would come up during the trial were second to none, and as a result, I felt very prepared to take the witness stand...His questioning of me, the plaintiff, and the expert witnesses was extremely well thought out, enlightening, and centered around our main defense arguments...While watching him at work each day, I could not help but feel that I was in the best hands possible and that he was doing everything he possibly could to get me the best outcome. I am proud to call Mr. Sikoscow a friend. He took my hand through one of the most difficult periods of my life and brought me through to the other side unscathed."
New York State Board Certified Emergency Medicine Physician - October, 2017

"Gerspach and Sikoscow…were nothing but superb in every way. They were always accessible and professional…they were the best teachers one could ask for. Their preparation, dedication and experience, combined with their profound and deep knowledge of the law…led to a defense verdict in a very sympathetic case brought by one of the most successful plaintiff attorneys in the United States. The attorneys from the other firms involved said Tom was amazing throughout this trial. There seems to be some sort of aura surrounding him that enables him to just glow during trial. Thank you for providing us with such stellar representation."
