“Gary Jaburg and Kraig Marton of Jaburg Wilk represented us in an employment dispute. The well-established reputations of Gary and Kraig garnered immediate credibility with the opposing lawyers. Throughout the process, they provided us with balanced and objective insights into the strengths and weaknesses of our position. At the same time they presented the strongest possible case to the other party and maximized our potential for success though citations to relevant case law, thoughtful venue selection, and a demonstrated willingness to “go the distance”. Mr. Jaburg in particular has an unmatched gift in high-stakes negotiation which ultimately resulted in a negotiated resolution prior to litigation being filed. The negotiation produced what I view as a best case outcome. I estimate we received a greater than ten-to-one return on the total amount of the legal fees we incurred with the firm. Gary and Kraig delivered both peace of mind and incredible value. Choosing the Jaburg & Wilk team proved to be the best possible decision we could have made.”
"I've been a client of Jaburg Wilk for 4 years. During that time they've helped me with a variety of issues from contracts to representing me in litigation. Gary Jaburg and Roger Cohen did an excellent job navigating the legal waters, but they also have the soft-skills necessary to adapt and work productively with a variety of prickly personalities encountered in the legal profession. My litigation required expertise in several unrelated fields such as 1st amended rights and intellectual property. I'm glad to have a firm with attorneys specializing in each area of my suit, working together as a team to provide the strongest defense possible. Gary and Roger were highly responsive to my questions and available when I needed them. Every phone call and email was answered in a timely manner and they even provided guidance during my non-traditional working hours. I'm glad to have Jaburg Wilk on my team and highly recommend them.

"A few years after we started up Sleep America, we realized that there were many legal business issues we had little or no knowledge of. I was fortunate to meet Gary Jaburg who introduced me to his experienced and talented attorneys, who had the expertise to deal with our legal needs. Each of these attorneys had the same no nonsense, direct approach to finding very smart, logical and cost effective solutions to our legal issues. As we grew, Jaburg Wilk helped us avoid difficult situations before they occurred by being prepared and maintaining very high ethical standards. This led to us to winning the Better Business Bureau's Ethics in Business Award. We are grateful for the partnership we have maintained with this outstanding law firm for many years!"

"In 1993 I had the misfortune of becoming involved in a legal matter. I had the good fortune to be referred to Gary Jaburg. He took the time to explain, in detail, our options and the direction he thought best to follow. We took his legal counsel and the matter resolved without the expense and stress of a long and protracted legal battle, which our previous law firm had told us was inevitable. Jaburg Wilk has continued to provide me with the same type of practical, no-nonsense legal assistance for both my business and personal. From estate planning to every day business matters, I recommend Jaburg Wilk."
