Gil is Nassau County Team Leader responsible for overseeing the firm’s cases in that county. A skilled trial attorney, he has successfully tried a wide range of negligence cases including automobile negligence, premises, labor law, toxic torts and insurance coverage. He has also handled real estate, Surrogate’s Court, and contract dispute litigation.
Defending claims is in his blood. He was raised by a well-known defense attorney, and has had that mindset all of his life. He enjoys digging into his files and unearthing the truth behind the allegations, thereby exposing those who would attempt to take advantage of the justice system. Gil also relishes trying cases against seasoned litigators. He is successful because he spends more time preparing his files for trial than many of his adversaries. His knowledge of medicine and close contacts with his expert witnesses are also an advantage.
On his personal time, Gil enjoys sailing and fishing in the waters off Long Island, as well as spending time in his workshop making furniture.
