Our Firm

How We Work For You

Unfortunately, life is not always fair.  Bad things do happen to good people.  Accidents happen, but in most cases, they were preventable and caused by the negligence of some other party.  An inattentive driver causes an accident and changes a life forever.  A workplace accident caused by the negligence of a third party, hospitalizes the family breadwinner.

When accidents happen, The Law Offices of Gary A Kessler are there for you and your family.

Your first contact with our office will most likely be a phone call.  Gary A Kessler or an office representative is “on call” 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  All calls and consultations are free.  You will be asked to provide basic information about the facts and “what happened.”  The initial informal discussion will typically last between 15-30 minutes.

Next, we will arrange an appointment at your convenience.  Depending on the circumstances and complexity of your case, an in-office appointment may be made or, again at your convenience, an in-home, at work or even hospital visit can be scheduled.

Having completed the initial intake portion of your potential claim, your case will be reviewed and overseen by Mr. Kessler who works exclusively with you and expert witnesses on your case.  Mr. Kessler will work with an investigator, medical correspondent, and additional support staff, immediately beginning work on your case.  Unlike other law firms, you will be able to talk to Mr. Kessler directly from the start of your case to the resolution of your case.

Based on the specifics of your case, Mr. Kessler and his legal team will provide all the necessary legal guidance, representation and information required to meet your needs.

Our goal at the Law Offices of Gary A Kessler is to provide you with special, personal attention and the highest quality legal representation to obtain a successful and prompt resolution of your case.

Do I have A Case?

If you or a loved one have been injured in an accident caused by the negligent or intentional act of another, you may have the right to a monetary recovery for the following:

  • Past Medical Bills
  • Future Medical Bills
  • Past Lost Wages
  • Loss or Impairment of Future Wages or Earning Capacity
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Property Damage
  • Out-of-Pocket Expenses
  • Punitive Damages

However, simply having “the right to recover” for your injuries does not mean that you will be adequately compensated for your injuries.  Insurance companies do not voluntarily pay money on claims.  In fact, insurance companies are large for-profit corporations.  The less they pay in claims the more profit they make.  Simply put, they profit at your expense.

Our experienced team headed by trial lawyer Gary A Kessler, investigators, medical experts, paralegals and support staff will investigate the facts of your accident, evaluate your case or claim and handle all of the details required to obtain the maximum recovery for you, the client.

Experienced attorney Gary A Kessler has a proven track record of success dealing with insurance companies on a daily basis.  We work hard with the goal of obtaining the maximum settlement value for your case.

Do I Need An Attorney?

You deserve to be compensated for your injuries, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other recoverable damages.  But mistakes or delays in the investigation, preparation or handling of your case may be detrimental to your case, decreasing your recovery or, even worse, causing you to lose your case entirely.  Time is of the essence.

In addition, a recent Allstate Insurance Company report stated that settlements paid to individuals who are represented by counsel are generally “three times” that which is paid to individuals not represented by counsel.

This year, even in cases where liability is clear and undisputed, insurance companies are denying claims and individuals are finding it increasingly difficult to resolve even their property damage claims or just getting their medical bills paid by insurance companies.  This “hard line” settlement strategy makes getting an experienced attorney such as Gary A Kessler on your side, early on, even more important.

What Is My Case Worth?

There is no tried or proven formula to determining the value of your case.  Instead, the value is based on careful analysis of the facts, legal liability, nature and extent of injuries, as well as medical expenses, lost income, loss of future earnings, pain and suffering, physical impairment and other damages.

Based on our proven track record and experience, and our history of recovering millions of dollars in settlements, arbitration awards and jury verdicts, we are able to evaluate cases and provide a range of value.

At the Law Offices of Gary A Kessler, the attorney consultation is always free and we will be glad to personally answer any questions you have regarding your case with straightforward, honest answers.

There is no charge to evaluate your case to help you decide if you have a case or whether you need a lawyer.

How Much Will It Cost To Prosecute My Case?

There is no fee unless there is a recovery.  Our legal fees are a percentage of the total amount of money we collect for you, payable only when your case is successfully concluded.  We have a mutual interest with our clients to settle cases for their maximum value.  Greater recovery for you equates to a greater recovery for our firm.

How Long Will It Take To Resolve My Case?

The answer to this question can vary greatly depending on the complexity of your case.  However, generally, the average automobile negligence case is typically resolved within 4 to 8 months.  If a case goes to litigation, 50% of all cases normally go to trial within one year and the other 50% go to trial within two years.

At the Law Offices of Gary A Kessler we have a 98% settlement success rate.
