Client Testimonials

  • I am a life you have touched. May God bless you richly.

    “After suffering with constant pain for nearly seven months, losing the job I loved and then being denied my long term disability, I was extremely discouraged when I began looking for help. With a few phone calls from Mr. Kantor to my insurance company, my long term disability was reinstated . The financial burden was lifted and I have hope again. I am a life you have touched. May God bless you richly.”

  • Your compassion for me and my situation is very much appreciated.

    “My thanks to you for pursuing my case with vigor. I don't know much about how these legal things are handled, but I could tell by your communications with me, making sure I was always informed, that you were on top of it all. Also, you were ALWAYS available to me to answer questions, and your compassion for me and my situation is very much appreciated. I have had limited exposure to the legal system and attorneys, but I have never been able to just call and talk to them, as I could with you. I always had to speak with someone in the office that couldn't really answer my questions.”

  • Thank you for all of your hard work, support and belief in our case.

    “Hi Elizabeth - You have been such an important part of my and Jennifer's past year, and I want to send you a note to wish you a wonderful holiday. Thank you for all of your hard work, support and belief in our case. Thank you seems like two small words and not enough, but they are heartfelt and mean so much.”

  • I've already mentioned your firm to my family and friends and how wonderful you have been treating me.

    “I've already mentioned your firm to my family and friends and how wonderful you have been treating me. Hopefully I will not ever have the need to refer someone to you because that would mean they would be in a similar situation as myself. But, if that were to ever happen, I would absolutely refer them to your company.”
