About Gerald Dorfman

I have been in practice since 1983. I am responsible for all matters handled by my office. Paralegals, law clerks and associates may be utilized in appropriate situations, but the buck stops with me. Intentionally remaining small has enabled me to continue to provide unparallelled personal attention and confidentiality. My clients are the reason I am here, and I work hard for the best result possible. I am honored by the trust placed in me, and strive to maintain it at the highest level. I am also grateful to the highly qualified consultants and experts who have repeatedly proved invaluable in obtaining realistic assessments and optimal results for my clients. As a client, you are entitled to understand the law applicable to your matter and the options available, as well as my best advice. I have served hundreds of satisfied clients over the years and look forward to continuing to serve with determination, skill and integrity.
