Nancy Gerson, Esq.
Personal Injury Lawyer
I received my undergraduate degree from Rutgers University. I was a Spanish major and graduated with a minor in Communications. At some point during my college career it occurred to me that law would suit my philosophical inclination, that law school might enhance my ability to discriminate between truth and falsehood. I went on to attend St. Johns Law in Queen’s NY and graduated in 1984. Since then I have devoted my more than 20-year career to personal injury cases and Workers’ Compensation claims. I have handled a myriad of types of court conferences, hearings, and depositions while engaging in extensive contact with clients, insurance company adjusters and attorneys representing insurance companies.

I have always had a desire to help people experiencing difficult situations, and by using my lawyerly and interpersonal skills to bring those difficulties to as positive an outcome as I can. It is always a team effort.
I enjoy all the different relationships involved, such as the ones between myself and my clients; myself and the judges; myself and my colleagues; and yes, even the ones between myself and my adversaries.
I am fluent in the Spanish language, I have been able, over the years to put my Latino clients much more at ease, allowing them to describe their accidents, their injuries, their worries and their hopes in their native tongue.
The very first thing I do is assure my new clients that I realize that I am meeting them at a very difficult time in their lives and that I am sorry for their suffering. Then I promise them that during the course of my representation of them, they can count upon my being honest with them; respecting their right to know what is going on with their case; and fighting as hard as I can for a positive outcome.
I became a certified Equine Coach in 2012. Since then I have been bringing people together with my horses, offering them a really interesting and effective form of life-coaching. Horses are amazingly intuitive and healing for humans!
