Representation by Ben Folkman of Folkman Law Offices was among the most dismal experiences we have ever had. His handling of our case was spent engaging in meaningless correspondence with opposing counsel that did nothing to advance our claim or prepare our case for court. It simply drove up his billable hours. Folkman was dismissive of our concerns, exhibited an attitude of superiority, was arrogant, but perhaps most importantly, failed to listen.

Ben Folkman, Esquire is an active member of the legal community. He serves the community well and his clients well. He takes his role as a litigator very seriously; but, he doesn't take himself too seriously. Ben is a great advocate for the downtrodden.

In addition to employment discrimination on behalf of plaintiffs, Ben Folkman specializes in professional malpractice and personal injury matters, also mostly on behalf of plaintiffs. Ben is well deserving of the highest rating of his peers. I refer clients to Ben Folkman without hesitation. Apart from his laudable professional skills in the courtroom, he is a gentlemen.

I have known Ben Folkman to be of the highest caliber in all categories listed above. He is an exemplary trial attorney who has practiced in NJ and PA for about 26 years. He has successfully tried many cases to conclusion and he's obtained jury verdicts in excess of one-million dollars. He is held in the highest esteem by me and by the legal community for his expertise and his unimpeachable ethical standards.
