Joel's Testimonial

I will never forget that night....

My girlfriend and I had been having an argument about my returning her car late. At one point, she slapped me in the face, and when I tried to hold my hands up in defense, I accidentally pushed her back, causing her to trip and fall. Everything happened so fast after that. Suddenly, I was lifted up by two men from behind and thrown on the ground. Someone handcuffed my hands behind my back. While I was still lying faced down, one of the two guys got down in front of me and started wailing on me, slamming his fists into my face, again and again. My girlfriend was screaming, and I could feel blood running down my face. It was dark, so I couldn't see much, but I could make out one thing: a shinny NYPD badge staring down at me from my attacker's shirt. He was a cop.

That was the worst night of my life. My face disfigured with a broken nose that felt like it was on the other side of my face, I didn't even look like the same person. Worse off, I didn't feel like the same person. I felt scared and abused. And to think, the police actually issued me Desk Appearances for harassment and resisting arrest! I knew what had happened to me wasn't right and that I didn't deserve it, so I decided to seek legal help.

I looked into a lot of lawyers, but I ultimately went with Michael Gunzburg, P.C. because he put everything out on the table. He explained everything to me, clearly and patiently, and provided me with all the information I needed to consider my options and make the best possible choices for my future. More than that, Michael Gunzburg, P.C. was outstanding in his personal support. Unlike all the negative experiences between clients and their lawyers that I've heard about and seen on TV, everything with Michael Gunzburg, P.C. went very smoothly. He worked around my schedule, and while I was mentally and physically recuperating, he took care of all of the details of my case. Michael Gunzburg, P.C. even lifted my spirits when I got down on myself and my future. At the end of the day, Michael Gunzburg, P.C. was much more than a skilled Police Brutality Lawyer, he was more like my friend.

My case was eventually settled before trial, and I received a generous damages package which covered my past and future medical costs, my out of pocket expenses for having to hire a criminal defense lawyer, and compensation for my past and future pain and suffering. The best reward of all, however, was that I felt I got justice out of my case, a peace of mind which will continue to give me the courage and strength to heal.

Michael Gunzburg, P.C. was top-notch and used his legal experience to make everything run smoothly. So all I'd like to say is this: Thank you, Michael Gunzburg, for giving me my life back. You are best!
