Nancy is a compassionate and extremely knowledgeable attorney. I would highly recommend her to anyone who suffered a preventable medical injury or families who lost a loved one in an accident or a hospital.
When a loved one is catastrophically injured, your first concern is to get the best medical care. But you should also get the best legal team as soon as possible. After my daughter was paralyzed in a van accident, I was referred to Eisenberg Rothweiler....the next morning, Fred Eisenberg and Dan Sherry flew up to the hospital. Al Piro
It was a difficult time for my wife and me, but you always assured us that you would do your best to make life more comfortable for us in the future - and YOU CAME THROUGH....We really appreciate the time and research you put into our case...You are more than lawyers - you are our friends.
