Client Reviews

“The firm handled the filing and paper work for my wife’s Social Security Disability Benefits. The process was very easy and communication during the entire process was great. The attorney handling our case was thorough and kept us updated frequently during the process. They were able to get us SSDI back pay, that we never even anticipated.”

I just wanted to say that I was very moved by the culture that you and your predecessors have developed at Galfand Berger.  We all try to do the best work that we can every day and, in so doing, strive to provide the highest level of service to our clients.  For many of us, this is just a given.  If we are going to be successful in business, we need to do our best work every day.  We need to reward our clients for their trust.  That being said, what defines you and your colleagues as terrific people is that you do work for others who can never really repay you.  For me, this is the mark of a successful person.

I just want to share a heartfelt than you to you and your partners at Galfand Berger for the way that you support our local community.

This firm was efficient, helpful, handled details in a very timely manner, and respected the fact that I am disabled and could not always get to their office. . . . They are a great law firm. I was in the insurance claim industry for 25 years, so I have dealt with quite a few attorneys. This firm is top-rate.

Arthur L. Bugay, Esq.

I wish to thank you, as well as your Partners, for the attention you have given my case.  Without your help I would not have been able to retain my pension benefits.  Your intervention was not only efficacious but I was very sensitive to the way you calmed my fears and reassured me.  You treated me with kindness and fairness…Without your intercession; I could not obtain a resolution.

– Client

I would recommend Mr. Bugay to any person suffering an injury from a power tool accident, He worked very hard for me and my wife to get the best results possible. …[A]gainst one of the biggest tools makers in the U.S., he was able to find the best people in the field to help us, I rate Mr. Bugay a 10 on the scale for top lawyers.

My dear friend.  Sorry it has been so long since we have spoken. I took some time to reflect and move a bit forward. My mother let me know you had called so I wanted to return the honor. I am been busy with work and finishing my education for my Athletic Science degree. I have purchased a home and defining my career. This is all thanks to you and Marc. I will be sending a very personal thank you to you, Marc and Galfand Berger to thank everyone that made this possible . If you are ever in this area please stop by have a coffee and relax.  You will always be welcome in our home and family.

-Client

I just wanted to send a quick letter to say how happy and impressed I was with Mr. Bugay’s handling of 2 of my cases.

Mr. Arthur Bugay impressed me immediately with his knowledge, compassion toward my particular situation, his professionalism, and his handling of my cases from start to finish.

I could not have found a better attorney to represent me if I tried, and you should be happy to have an attorney of Mr. Bugay’s caliber at your firm.

Once again, thank you for your wonderful assistance in this matter. Without your help this never would have been resolved.

-Client

Dear Arthur,

I wanted to thank you for your efforts on my behalf. Your interest and information certainly went above and beyond what one would expect and I am most appreciative. If karma holds true, good things will come your way. Thanks again!

-Client

Dear Arthur,

You are my hero. Everyone I tell of this case wants to know your name. You are the best. You won my promotion. You are now the hero of the Fire Department. The calls are coming in, “How did you beat the city?” My lawyer beat the city.

I tell them about you. The firemen are so proud of you. My family is so proud of you. You saw that justice was done. I am so proud of you. I will never forget what you have done for me.

-Client

Arthur,

Thanks for everything you did for me. Your work with other hopeful firemen shows what kind of person you are. Also thanks for not killing my wallet. It shows how honest you are. If I need any legal help in the future, you are my first call. Not to mention I’ll highly recommend you to anyone who needs legal help. Have lunch or dinner on me. You deserve it.

-Client

Mr. Bugay was a very professional gentleman to have handled my case. He was efficient, cognitive of the status of my case at all times, and had documentation prepared and sent to me in a timely manner. I would recommend him to anyone searching for a bankruptcy attorney.

Debra Jensen

After the sudden lost of my father, I was recommended to this law firm. I didn’t know what to expect . I couldn’t even think clear. Deb. Jensen, was the most caring, knowledgeable, personable attorney I have ever met..and most of all she listened to me! She told me to focus on getting better and to go ahead and grieve my fathers death. I was always kept informed about the status of the case. The office staff including Elaine Sachs were the best!! Most of all great results! View Avvo Rating

Richard M. Jurewicz

Honest, helpful and very professional. View Avvo Rating

-Client

I was very pleased with the settlement of my case, which was a result of the hard work of attorney Rick Jurewicz with the assistance of attorney Henry Yampolsky. Expert advice was also given to me by attorney Marc Jacobs concerning Workers’ Compensation.

Thank you for winning my case, and I was glad to have your team of super lawyers represent me. When anyone I know needs representation, your law firm would be the only one I would recommend.”

-Client

If you are injured Rick is the lawyer you should call. I was turned down by other lawyers, but Mr. Jurewicz picked up my case and pursued it vigorously for 6 years to a successful conclusion. There was little hope but he stuck with me and I was satisfied with the outcome. Outstanding. View Avvo Rating

-Client

I was actually referred to Richard Jurewicz from another law firm who thought he was better suited for me and my case. It is much better to get a lawyer referred from one of his peers than to call one of those who use an actor to do their advertising on TV. He was honest and upfront with me from beginning to end, and I always thought he kept me and my family’s best interest in mind. He made it easy for me to be a client and kept me informed on what to expect and what was next. He treated me as an equal who deserved the best lawyer to be on my side. I felt he could not have done a better job for me and I am very happy and pleased to have had him represent me. I would call him again if I ever needed him and would highly recommend him to anyone who believes they are in need of a lawyer. View Avvo Rating

-Client

Rick came into our lives at a most crucial time. I did not know if my husband would ever survive the accident. Rick was supportive, advised us without telling us what to do and was there whenever I needed him, even just to vent. Thankfully, we settled out of court, but I would have liked to watch him in a courtroom.

We don’t consider Rick just our lawyer, but also a friend. We would recommend his services to anyone who would need it. I consider Rick an important part of my husband’s recovery, along with the hospital, doctors, surgeons and rehab team. Our lives can go on because of his honesty and attention to detail of the case. Before we were contacted by Rick, another lawyer told me that we didn’t have a case. Now we can live the rest of our lives without worry. View Avvo Rating

-Client

Richard is the best lawyer for a personal injury case. He is caring, lets you know what’s going on and where you stand. He is very educated and savvy in his field. View Avvo Rating

Rick was just fantastic. We are still friendly with him. He kept in touch with us about everything all the time. We could contact him at any time, and if he was not available, he returned the call promptly. We found Rick to be very knowledgeable about work-related injuries. He pulled no punches when it came to helping us get to the bottom of what happened. We would recommend Rick to anyone who has been injured on the job and needs someone to fight hard for them. We feel like we have made a life long friend. If you need someone to fight hard for you and get you the best that anyone can, Rick is your guy. Thank you. View Avvo Rating

I endorse this lawyer’s work. Rick was a presenter for me in a Medicine for Lawyers seminar. His presentation was articulate, precise, and informative. Rick is a zealous advocate for his clients. He does his homework. He is always prepared. He has a very affable personality which, I believe contributes to his success in the courtroom.

Every opportunity I have to refer a product’s liability case, I refer them to the best: Richard Jurewicz.

-Colleague, Workers’ Compensation Lawyer in Harrisburg, PA

I was an opponent of this individual in a complicated litigation matter involving very serious injuries. I was more than impressed with his case preparation, theories of liability and their development and grasp of difficult medical matters. As the result of that experience, I have referred plaintiff’s cases to him and have done joint CLE presentations. Needless to say, I have no hesitation in giving Mr. Jurewicz a 5 star recommendation.

-Colleague, attorney in Southampton, PA

I endorse this lawyer’s work. I have handled a number of cases with Rick and he has always represented his clients aggressively. At the same time, he maintains a realistic outlook and a professional relationship with opposing counsel that fosters honest communication. As a result, the cases we have handled together have always resolved in a fashion that is fair to everyone involved.

-Colleague, Defective and Dangerous Products Attorney in Philadelphia, PA

I endorse this lawyer’s work. Richard is an extremely competent trial attorney with a particular expertise in product liability litigation. He is a zealous advocate on his client’s behalf and a hard worker.

-Colleague, attorney in Woodbury, NJ

Rick is an exceedingly capable personal injury trial attorney which is why I refer such cases to him. Rick has been obtaining very favorable results for his clients in difficult personal injury and Workers’ Compensation cases for years and has an excellent reputation.

-Colleague, attorney in Exton, PA

I would recommend Mr. Jurewicz without reservation. In all of the matters that I have had the opportunity to refer to Mr. Jurewicz, he has demonstrated, in every instance, that he is an exceptionally skilled, competent, and thorough professional. Because of his excellent representation, he has obtained, what I would consider, exceptional settlements on behalf of my clients and I know that they have been extremely pleased with the outcome of their cases.

“Michael helped me with a separation agreement with my former employer. He went over the agreement and helped me better understand the agreement and what some of my choices were. He also put in touch with his colleague Henry, who handles employment cases. They were very helpful, and I’m truly grateful for all their hard work. They both made a difficult situation a lot easier for me.”

I wanted to let you know how glad I am I went with you and your firm.  Of all the guys that called me back after I fell, it was your demeanor and professionalism that stood out, and they were the biggest reasons I went with Galfand Berger.  So really, I guess I wanted to say thanks…

– Client

Thanks Mike, and it has been a pleasure working with you, thank you for all of your work and help with my case.  Without your assistance I would have probably settled for next to nothing.

– Client

Thank you for everything you did for me.  I am happy and forever grateful.  I will certainly refer family and friends as well as myself if I ever find myself in need of an attorney.

– Client

Thank you for all you have done for us.  God Bless you always!

Just want to thank you for a job well done.  I really appreciate all your effort.

Peter Patton

This lawyer took a case after many turned me down stating “No there is nothing that can be done, no money to be won”. Peter met with me in my own area, driving to me, to do a consultation. He took my case immediately and stayed in contact with me throughout the entire process. (Injury Case). He was very good about his timing and waited until after the job I had let me to go to really kick the case into high gear so that he didn’t make any more problems for me than I already had at my old job. He made sure I understood everything through the process and at no point in time did I feel taken advantage of or ignorant of the payouts, money being spent, or time allotted for the case. Throughout the entire legal process (Which is lengthy) Peter was diligent, calm, and intimidating towards my previous employer. He worked with intelligence and followed due process to achieve our goals and hit the number we agreed on. He never forced anything and would of backed me up if I picked to take the case in a different path or go for different things. The one thing that Peter went above and beyond with was helping me understand the legal process. This was my first time doing anything legal. I did not understand how lengthy a case was and how many components it was comprised of. Never did I feel like I was being a bother to Peter nor that he was rushing me through. Because of Peter’s thoroughness I have a better future for me and my family. I consider him more than a lawyer. He is a family friend.

Gabriela Raful

“When I was uncertain of what to do in my situation, I was given a recommendation to go and find guidance, so I did I visited the office of Galfand Berger LLP and Gabriela Raful took me under her wing. When talking about experience the quest at hand should be plain and simple: Trustworthy, Transparent, Dependable, And full of knowledge. The ability that this attorney has to get her client what they may need is incredible. Gabriela Raful was able to get me the settlement that I deserved and that I became more than grateful for.”

Gabriela was very professional in the handling of my workers compensation claim. I was very impressed with her knowledge of Pennsylvania Workers Comp. Laws. I was very satisfied with the outcome of my case and I highly recommend her.

— Client

“Gabby helped my dad settle his auto accident in less than a year. She got the full policy of the striking car and the entire coverage of my dad’s underinsured coverage. In a year she got everything done! She cares. She called on weekends and evenings and texted all the time. She kept us informed.”

“Gabby Raful represented me in a pallet jack accident. She is a good human being, compassionate and hard working. I highly recommend her.”

— Client

Gabby was absolutely wonderful and I would highly recommend her again. As a matter of fact I did recommend her and my friend was extremely pleased with her services. I was and have been dealing with cancer. I had every intention to return to work but that was not to be the case. Gabby basically took care of all matters concerning social security.At the time I was receiving chemo and was so sick I could not even attempt to take care of all the paperwork involved. She was kind,patient and walked me through any questions and concerns. What I was so appreciative of was how she was able to get me my rightful benefits that were due to us. That money helped us out tremendously as I had to leave a job that paid quite well. I would highly recommend Gabby again and I truly believe she is an asset to your firm. Thank You.

– Client

Gabby was and is very professional and caring with me as her client and my family when they came with me. I did recommend Gabby to a friend and will continue to do so. She is also handling my disability claim. I absolutely love Gabby she is just such a people person and VERY VERY good at her job and went above and beyond to make sure she did and does everything she can for me. Gabby is definitely the lawyer you want, you will not be disappointed!

– Client

Gabby helped my dad in his work injury case and secured a settlement quickly. She wasted no time and knew what she was doing. She went beyond the injury case and helped him filed for disability and got it in just 3 months. She cares about her clients!

– Client

Last week, I was involved in an accident & thought it wise to contact someone I trust in these matters. I remember your specialty is Workers’ Compensation but your referral to Gabby [Raful] was one of the best legal representation experiences I’ve had…
