If I could give more starts I would. This was my second go around with finally a great attorney. They are awesome. Nancy was amazing, always caring and on point. Jill did an amazing job! Win or loose they made this experience livable. Before it just seemed like I was doing everything myself, and then I called and got a great staff, excellent lawyers, everyone was so great. They put my fears and stress behind me, Thank you so much just for being there, being a great team, and knowledgeable staff. Thank you Thank you
DO NOT HIRE THIS FIRM IF YOU WANT TO WIN AN SSI CASE. Two years ago I attained the services of this firm on a no-win no-charge basis. I submitted all info required (by my agent cause he sure didnt act like an attorney) months prior to my hearing and during the hearing mr. BENJAMIN P. FELD(my agent) had the audacity to tell the court that his client (me) had just submitted evidence a couple days ago which was the same paper-work I personally turned-in months prior to my hearing. The judge did not allow my evidence into court and in my evidence I have reports from USC deeming me disabled permanently. I think mr. Benzy knew what he was doing and chose not to help me. His female assistant, whom had done nothing for me was again of no use. After the news that my decision was unfavorable, mr. Benja had the audacity to ask me for money to continue to the federal level yet I think that was his plan all along: to get money out of me and collect when he wins. If you're looking for an attorney who is going to help, listen, and advocate your case for you: well gitterman and gittermansss is not it... go anywhere else but here. Iam still on my case currently working with another firm no thank to this firm, very, very, yes very very wack & disappointed in all ways of your representation!!!!!...
They tell you you dont pay unless you win ...waste your time with consultation then give you a contract that has smuggled in making you agree to agree to pay all the fees even if you loose this is in cost and expenses paragragh in contract...i agree to pay wether i win or loose ....UPDATE! Benjamin and i spoke and this was a miscommunication . The contract i was sent was an old contract and this was resolved so fast my post hadnt sat a day. Im glad to say im now a client of this firm.
I called Ben Feld for legal advice. He answered the phone, immediately put me at east and was able to offer practical, smart advice. Very appreciative.
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.
