Welcome to the lawyer-doctors of Gershon, Willoughby and Getz. If you are visiting because of a birth injury or birth related disability affecting your child please click here. Medical Malpractice involves the complex science of medicine, therefore successful advocacy requires a deep passion for what we do and a comprehensive knowledge of both law and medicine to be effective. At Gershon Willoughby and Getz, LLC we believe the best way to effectively advocate for seriously injured victims of medical malpractice is to attend medical school and to fight relentlessly to protect and enforce our client’s rights. I am Dr. Zev Gershon, Esq., founding partner of Gershon Willoughby and Getz, LLC. Over our nearly 70 cumulative years of helping victims and their families recover for medical injuries, we have found our medical training to be criticalin the recovery of fair and appropriate compensation for our seriously injured clients. As a result, the majority of our firm’s partners have graduated from medical school. This combined with our successful track record and the fact that medical malpractice is all we do, distinguishes our law firm from other malpractice lawyers nationwide. If we do not successfully recover, there is no fee or expense.
Birth injuries such as Cerebral Palsy result in life long disability and tremendous financial expense. Obtaining fair and appropriate compensation to pay life long expenses is absolutely critical. In birth injury malpractice, the doctors, medical providers and their hired gun medical experts go to great lengths to hide and cover up the truth. Our record setting verdicts and settlements* reflects our successful philosophy that lawyers advocating for injured clients must know the medicine in order to stop the defense cover up. As a malpractice litigation firm, our philosophy has always been that there is no better way to maximize recovery for the harms and losses suffered by our seriously injured clients than to have actual medical training. That is why the majority of our partners graduated medical school. Our successful record of handling medical negligence cases from Maryland to Oregon and throughout the country*, including the highest medical malpractice verdict ever in Washington DC, has shown us that our philosophy is effective at obtaining the best possible results on behalf of our clients.

I can't say enough about Gershon, Willoughby and Getz! Let alone the complexities of my case I can tell you that when it comes to medical malpractice, if you can hire a lawyer that is actually a doctor, there is no other way to go! -V.H.
Following the unexpected loss of my spouse I spoke to many lawyers. I was surprised how many "malpractice lawyers" had no idea what I was talking about. I soon as I spoke to Dr. Gershon, he knew exactly what I was talking about and my search was over.
After the birth of my child, and the devastating news that there was a problem, that my son would never be normal, I was lost. I had no idea where to turn. After speaking with the lawyers at the Gershon firm it became clear they were familiar with my situation and that they were the right firm for us. Because of their knowledge and ability, I was able to recover the money my son will need. - J.S.
