“I was represented by Aaron M. Blank and I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to him for all the care and concern he has shown me. He is a wonderful person and a terrific attorney. A malpractice case is hard and painful, but he gave me solid support and without his deft skill, warm style and experienced perspective, my case could not have been well settled. I appreciate all his help and will definitely recommend him to my friends for legal advice.”
