I was referred to Resnick Law Group by my family attorney who recently retired, I was told he was the best. My legal issues were resolved in my favor, in a timely manner. Gerry and his staff were very responsive to all of my communications, answered all of my questions and treated me with dignity and respect. I highly recommend Gerry Resnick.

After 25 years of employment my position was eliminated as part of a corporate restructuring initiative. Mr. Gerry Resnick listened as I described my work situation and presented several options on how I could proceed. It is worth noting that my former employer retained the services of a large international labor law firm. After three months of negotiations Gerry was able to finalize a separation package which I am very pleased with. My time was well spent with Gerry and I highly recommend his firm.
