Nobody ever pencils in a car accident into their day, or the time it takes to heal from the injuries. In July, I was t-boned on Airline Drive with my two boys in the car. By the grace of God my boys were uninjured, but I was not so lucky. My first phone call was to my husband. And by the time he got to the accident, he told me to “Get Gordon”. I was blessed to get attorney Arlen Garfunkel. Throughout the 7month road to recovery, he called every other week. Touching base with how I was feeling and also asking about my boys. He also kept on top of all my medical bills. Thanks Arlen for all your hard work!!! I am blessed to have had the chance to work with you, altho I hope our paths don’t cross again under such circumstances

My experience with the Gordon McKernan firm has been completely seamless. From our first call, during a time of pain & crisis, to ultimate ending I can say that it has been so valuable. I felt safe, informed all along the way, and they always promptly communicated with me. I don’t hardly know how to convey my deep gratitude to my personal attorney, Arlen Garfunkel. He and his staff in Shreveport are professional, prompt, and extremely considerate. Working with a team that is knowledgeable as well as caring is absolutely a great feeling! Thank You & God bless you all who contributed to my litigation success. But more importantly restoring my faith in the system. Your Happy & Grateful Client, Marcella Smith
