    One of a kind; compassionate, articulate, and exceptionally effective. Represented our family in a Personal Injury case and produced results that far exceeded our expectations. He was personally involved in every facet of the case providing a level of experience second to none. In over 40 years, I have never met a more competent attorney and I wholeheartedly recommend him and his practice for any case requiring litigation. Mr. Plaxen is the best.

    Mr. Adler was an extremely competent attorney. Him and his staff treated me like I was their most important client. From the woman who answered the phone to his legal assistant I always was treated with respect and in a timely manner. He went above and beyond what I have come to expect from other attorneys I have dealt with in the past. I believe his professional work ethic his knowledge of workers compensation law and his attention to detail was the reason I got such a large settlement.

    When I had my car accident it was a very stressful and scary time in my life. I was injured, my car was totaled, and I didn't know how I was going to be able to deal with the insurance companies that kept calling me. The attorneys and staff at Plaxen & Adler took care of everything for me throughout the entire process. They fought hard for me and were able to settle my case, and I was very happy with the result.
