Field, Gary P, JD
After five years of litigation, four attorneys, two rounds of being pro se, and nineteen adjournments; I had lost faith in the justice system and hope of getting child support from my abusive ex-husband. In a moment of desperation, I appealed to my employer and found Gary P. Field through the Employee Assistance Program.In just a matter of weeks, Mr. Field was able to dismiss frivolous motions, make headway where I had long lost my ability to navigate the courts. He is well known and respected in Suffolk's Supreme and Family Court and the Child Support Enforcement Bureau. Mr. Field got my case under control. There are no words to convey my respect, appreciation, and admiration for Mr. Field's compassion, stealth ability to establish the facts and knowledge of the law. Matrimonial law, child support, and custody cases are a nightmare at best. Mr. Field gained control of my case and it is moving steadily towards a fair and just resolution. It is with full confidence and without hesitation that I endorse and recommend Gary P. Field, attorney at law.

Silverstein & Kahn P.C.
I found this office on the internet after my car accident. Ira Kahn helped me with every part of my case. Helped me get my lost salary paid in full while I was out of work and took care of everything for me. All my medical bills were paid without any hassles. Ira responded to all my calls and questions, he even called me to get updates about my medical condition and my treatment. When all was said and done I got a great settlement. I had a great experience dealing with this office. If you need an injury lawyer call this office, you'll be treated like a family freind.

Silverstein & Kahn P.C.
Afterr fallin on ice in a store parking lot and being injured my case was turned down by two other law firms. They said i had no case. A friend recommended Silverstein and Kahn and they took my case. They fought hard for me and pushed my case along. After going through the court process they obtained a fantastic settlement for me. These are great guys who stuck with me through my entire case. I feel extremely lucky to have found this firm. I probably wouldn't have bothered perusing my case if it wasn't for this firm. Thanks for everything guys.
Tips & Advices
When it comes time to choose a lawyer, you should start by searching close to home. If you do have attorneys you are familiar with, ask who they believe would be best for you. After going through personal references - especially from individuals who had similar needs - you should broaden your search through public information resources. You can call your area's attorney referral service or check legal organizations like Martindale-Hubbell. There are other resources available online, such as yellowpages.com. You can check websites for client reviews and other third-party forms of approval.
If you sign documents and you come across a word you don't recognize, or you need help to navigate important employment or real estate paperwork. Also, during times when personal matters intersect with legal proceedings, you might need to have an advocate to prevent your emotions from getting in the way. If you've been accused of a crime or are in a terrible financial situation, you can find an attorney who will work with what you have available.
When you hire a lawyer, you're agreeing to work with someone over a certain period of time. The more forthcoming the lawyer appears to be with individual needs, the better.
  • You need to ask questions about how the attorney will communicate with you and what responsibilities you hold in the relationship.
  • The attorney should let you know the best channel for quick communication and you need to inform him or her when you want updates.
  • You should also ask questions to get to know the attorney as an individual in order to ensure this is a person you can trust. Ask about their legal philosophy and how he or she views the lawyer/client relationship. Ask as how to keep fees down or what daily disruptions you should expect from a long legal battle.
You need to ask about every possible fee that will come up when working with an attorney. You should request a list of all costs in advance so you won't be surprised by additional expenses like overhead. Also determine exactly when you will start being billed. You want to inspect paperwork carefully. If the attorney charges you for his or her experience, you need to make sure he or she will perform tasks personally and not hand it off to an assistant. Find out if the attorney has a flat fee or charges by the hour. Many civil lawyers work on contingency. Make inquiries about how the lawyer plans to provide service for your money and what you can do if you start to feel unsatisfied with his or her performance.
You can ask how many similar cases they have handled and if they have special skills or training that applies specifically to your needs. Lawyers can't mention clients by name, but you should ask for basic details about identical past cases. You should check their office for the appropriate certifications and diplomas. You can also ask how long he or she has practiced law and request information that demonstrates the practice's success. Look for precise details such as percentage of cases settled out of court.
