Client Reviews
"Absolutely love me Katz and the team! They are truest amazing! Barbara was truly my life saver throughout the entire process! Once again thank you! You won’t be disappointed!” Alexandra B.
"We had an accident in MD in Aug of 2018. No one would even return our call at other Firms. Barbara M. at Mr. Katz’s office responded right away and got the ball rolling on my case. Very helpful and she stayed in constant contact until our case was resolved. I absolutely would recommend them to anyone who needs representation.” Will P.
"Mr Katz has handled my husband’s and my accident claims. We were both in serious motorcycle accidents and sustained multiple injuries. Mr Katz has worked hard to make sure that we get what we need. His team has made me feel like we are important and that they are here to take care of us. I would definitely recommend Mr Katz and his team for any legal needs.” Charlene J.
