“Mr. Gerson,

Three years ago when Emily got injury from the Norwegian Cruise Line, we had been busy with the surgery and therapy treatment of her arm in Taiwan. After we came back to the United States, we had never received any email from NCL about concerning her injury, and they knew it did happen on their ship.

Since then I had been trying to find a lawyer to receive help even though I didn't know how to start. I finally find the information about your office from the internet. For these three years we are very thankful for your efforts and we finally received the compensation that Emily deserves.

Thank you very much to your office.”

"We, Paul R. Larkin, Jr. (father, husband and attorney) and Caryn Newborn (daughter) as co-personal representatives of the Estate of Carole A. Larkin, deceased retained the law firm of Gerson & Schwartz to prosecute a civil action against R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company for personal injury damages, both compensatory and punitive, sustained by Carole A. Larkin as a result of her smoking Winston cigarettes, manufactured by R.J. Reynolds. Reynolds was not only represented by local counsel, but in addition by a national law firm. Nevertheless, Gerson & Schwartz was more than a match for the lawyers representing this corporate giant through one 10 day jury trial that ended in a mistrial (2011) and a second 12 day jury trial (2015) that resulted in a substantial jury verdict (2015) which Reynolds unsuccessfully appealed and ultimately paid in 2018. My daughter and I to this day are still amazed at the determination and skill exhibited by Phil Gerson and his partner Ed Schwartz in representing us in this protracted litigation. As a trial lawyer myself, I believe this gives added weight to my respect for their work as trial lawyers."

"I am a lawyer in Massachusetts. I had a case to refer against a cruise line in Florida and did my homework on which firm to represent the client. Let me take the guessing out of it for you. Call this law firm and sign up."

"Nick Gerson and his staff were the best! They quickly resolved my case involving a fall during a cruise on a major cruise line. It is especially noteworthy that Nick was very accessible and more than willing to answer and follow-up on all of my questions.....even on weekends! Nick and his paralegal, Carla, were very dedicated to insuring the most equitable and expeditious resolution of my case and always took that extra step to keep me updated of their progress. Without hesitation, I recommend Nick and his staff above all others."

"I had a great experience with this law firm I live in New York, so basically I had to google lawyers in Florida Because I could not use any other state lawyer. I contacted various different attorneys to decide who I was going to use because as I said it's not like I could just get in a car and meet them face to face. This was the only law firm that had the attorney himself contact me and speak to me before deciding to use them. Other law firms had their paralegal call or just sent a generic email. I chose this firm because he made it personal when he called me himself way after 5 pm, he did not rush me off the phone or push me in to using his firm. He made sure I knew what to ask other firms just in case I did not use him. I would use them again and recommend this firm if anyone is looking for a personal injury lawyer for an accident on a cruise ship! Thanks again for everything you did for me!"

"I was injured in a fall aboard a cruise ship a while back. I contacted Gerson & Schwartz, having no idea what to expect. But they helped turn a horrible experience into a positive outcome. Nick Gerson took charge of my case and worked tirelessly to get the best possible settlement for me, and I really appreciate his efforts. I would highly recommend Nick and Gerson & Schwartz to anyone who needs a personal injury lawyer!"

“Closed on a Cruise Accident yesterday and I couldn't be happier with how Gerson and Schwartz represented my case. They were professional to the highest degree and was able to settle at a very satisfactory amount. I would highly recommend their services. I hope I never encounter an accident such as this one, but IF I or anyone I know do, Gerson and Schwartz will be the first I'll call or recommend.

Thanks to the Gerson and Schwartz team for an EXCELLENT and SATISFACTORY outcome.”

Mr Nick Gerson has been extremely attentive (even on weekends!) and has been more than willing to take time to answer all my questions. His receptionist (Suzanne) and paralegal (Carla) are courteous, friendly and highly efficient in all matters. Mr Gerson's diligence lead to a very quick resolution of my case. I am more than pleased to recommend you seek him as your attorney. You will not regret you did!!

- G.I.B.

Mr. Gerson and all his team gave to my case the careful and professional attention it needed from the beginning to end. Unfortunately, a year ago I was involved in a car accident on the victim side. I have appreciation for the good service that was given to me and my situation. Thanks.

Phil is the best attorney! The staff is very helpful and were always kind and understanding. Especially during a PIP claim which can be very frustrating. I am so lucky that I found Gerson & Schwartz to resolve my case, I truly believe there could have been no better outcome.

I hired Gerson & Schwartz, PA for a personal injury/slip and fall case. Phil Gerson, Nick Gerson, and Ed Schwartz were awesome! They were very professional, supportive, and informative through the whole process. I was amazed at how much time and effort they put into presenting my case. They fought hard for me and I am very happy with the outcome. I love these guys and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for an attorney who will look out for your best interest and fight hard for what you deserve.
