Natalie Magdeburger is probably the best trial attorney I have ever seen – and I have been involved in litigation for over 30 years! We definitely will continue to use the firm. We use a number of other excellent firms, but I think the Pessin Katz medical malpractice team is one of the best.”  – Benchmark Litigation Profile
