Hire Garfinkel Schwartz

If you’re injured, or if you have been cut off financially by an insurer, you should call Garfinkel Schwartz to begin the process of talking about your Defense Base Act case or your Longshore Act case. Garfinkel Schwartz will do everything possible to give all our clients superior legal service.

We start by providing you with the communication that we would want if we were the client or if we were the patient. There are different ways to contact us, no matter where you are. We have made it easy.


You can call our 24-hour line at (+1) 800-393-2999 or use one of the forms on our website https://www.defensebaseactlaw.com to write us. One of our representatives will get back to you as soon as possible.

During business hours 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST, you’ll be able to speak with paralegal Rory Tufts or lead counsel Defense Base Act attorney Brian Wiklendt. Brian will ask you questions and listen carefully to your answers. He knows the laws, the procedures, the ins and outs of cases and he wants to know what happened to you. Brian wants to know what you’ve been through and how he might help you.

Giselle Garcia is our Defense Base Act attorney. She will compassionately listen to you and guide you through the process.

If you decide that you want to be our client, we’re going to check in with you regularly to ask what we could do better to provide the legal support that you and your family need and that you expect from us.

If you choose another law firm, then it should be one with experience in these very specific practice areas. We just ask that you talk to someone to begin getting the help that you need.
