Without any hesitation I highly recommend this firm. The staff at David DeToffol and Gittleman always know me by name and worked hard to get me a settlement that I deserved, and more than I anticipated receiving. They are definitely professional too, and always got back to me on any concerns or questions I had throughout the process. You will be in good hands.
My car accident that wasn’t my fault and then got to spend $60,000 on medical bills and car replacement. The lawyers at DeToffol and Gittleman helped me to secure the recovery I was entitled, 100 times more than the other driver’s insurance company offered to me. I recommend him to all of my friends and family.
I don’t deal with lawyers often, but feel right to say these lawyers are the most kind, courteous and knowledgeable about the law that I ever hoped for. Their entire office is amazing and always kept me updated on the status of my case. I recommend them anywhere — they seem to know what is going on in the court throughout all the boroughs — Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island and the Bronx!
These guys pulled me out of a tail spin after losing my job for my complaining about a workplace harassment — that was not even happening to me — but other workers! I did my research and glad I did. I found David DeToffol — he was my first contact the firm. Truly an asset and friendly. I am not used to firm questions — but the way he speaks had me trusting him instantly. And it remained that way. I warmly recommend him, especially if you have a disturbing situation to needs fixing!
My young daughter was involved in an playground accident and they worked feverishly into a trial to get her the settlement that will last her lifetime. They were always available when I had questions. They got the job done, and I’m very happy with the outcome. I highly recommend DeToffol and Gittleman law firm.
I am glad to express my gratitude to these lawyers who recently finalized a settlement for me after a long lengthy process of a job gone bad from sexual harassment. They did a great job, kept me in the loop the whole time, had explained our position to me over and over and tried to keep me calm when I would become over emotional. They comforted by restoring my confidence. Many thanks to them for their show of experience — they did everything they promised and more.
The staff at DeToffol & Gittleman did everything they promised and more. A high recommendation here. Terrific people, prompt and personal like you want from a larger firm, but never get, yet all the experience both in settlement talks and moreover in the courtroom.
