Choosing the right attorney in New York City after getting injured in an accident can be difficult. Having the right attorney representing you can be the difference in winning and losing and obtaining the full money damages that you deserve. There are many factors that you should consider when looking to hire an attorney to handle your personal injury claim. Some common factors that you should take into consideration during the selection process include:
Experience:-You can gauge how an attorney will handle your claim by looking at how much experience he has in having handled similar cases. The more experience he has, the more likely he will be in successfully handling your case.
Focus of legal practice:-The focus of an attorney’s legal practice can make a big difference in the success rate of your case. It takes unique skills to properly handle a personal injury claim and obtain the full compensation that you deserve. Approximately 90% of personal injury claims are settled prior to trial. As such, it is important that you hire an attorney who knows how to negotiate a fair and reasonable settlement.
Reputation:- An attorney’s reputation is important both with regard to their clients and to other attorneys and judges in the legal field. For example, if an attorney does not have a good reputation with the adjusters, he may have a difficult time negotiating the compensation that you deserve.
Personality:- One of the most overlooked factors in choosing the right personal injury attorney is personality. Although you may not be discussing your case over dinner with your attorney, the last thing you need when injured is a lawyer who will not give you the attention that you need and deserve. Personal injury claims may take months or even years to come to resolution. As such, it is important to hire an attorney that you like and feel comfortable with.
Objectivity:- An objective attorney is more likely to help you make the right decisions when it comes to taking offers from the defense. You do not want an attorney who is looking to settle your case quickly so he can get his own fees or move on to the next client.
As you go through the attorney selection process, it is important that you are not rushed and that you take your time to choose the right attorney. The legal team at Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. offers free consultations to help you make the right decision in choosing the right attorney. We will answer any questions that you may have regarding your accident.

Gersowitz and Korek are Past Presidents of the New York State Trial Lawyers Association. The firm has received many professional accolades including being ranked by Best Lawyers® as one of the best law firms in the United States.
In 1984, Andrew L. Libo and Edward H. Gersowitz founded Gersowitz & Libo, P.C. after successful careers working with the legendary F. Lee Bailey and Aaron J. Broder. Jeff S. Korek left a Wall Street defense firm to join the firm as a named partner in 1992.
We founded the firm over 35 years ago based upon the goal of offering the best legal services to people suffering from the negligence of others Libo said of founding the firm with Gersowitz: “I am so proud that after all of these years our values have not changed as we continue to represent those who need it most”
Our success stems from the excellent, passionate lawyers that make up the GLK family. Michael Fruhling joined our team in 1991, and became a partner in 1999.
As our reputation grew over the years, so did our need for space. The firm’s first office location was at 333 Seventh Avenue in New York. In 1989, GLK moved to 56 Thomas Street until 1991 when we relocated to 299 Broadway, suite 702. Finally, in 1995, we settled in our current home in Downtown Manhattan at the Trinity Building location at 111 Broadway, 12th floor. We eventually took over the annex on the other side of the 12th floor to accommodate our growth.
“Our expansion at 111 Broadway is actually rather important as it highlights an important decision we made as a firm to stay downtown after September 11th,” remembers Michael Fruhling. “We expanded a few years later, growing as a firm and in solidarity with the downtown business community that went on to thrive despite the tragedy.”
Although GLK has recorded many successes in the courtroom, our proudest achievements have come from our work within our local communities. Among the many community organizations that we actively support is The Gardiner Foundation, an organization in the Bronx dedicated to offering financial, spiritual and emotional support to families and youth members most in need. We have been the title sponsor of the 2009 and 2010 Annual Gardiner Memorial Basketball Classic Tournament, a two-day street ball basketball tournament that provides food and beverages for thousands of people, college scholarships for selected graduating high school seniors, laptops and other electronics, along with backpacks full of school supplies, to the youth of the community, plaques and spiritual support to community members who have lost loved ones, and fun and entertainment for all in attendance. In 2010, we also sponsored the First Annual Gardiner Foundation Turkey Giveaway, which provided 130 families in the Bronx community with full Thanksgiving meals.
