The shock of dealing with an unexpected health crisis left me shaken and uncertain about my future, to say the least. After surviving some unfortunate circumstances and trying to re-enter the workforce, my health continued to decline. The denial of my extended sick leave prompted me to secure the services of Gaylord Popp.While coping with personal devastation and the stress of potential termination from my 18-year career, Sam provided the expert legal advice and calming guidance, which I sorely needed. I was able to focus on my rehabilitation while Sam handled the legal issues with my employer. After almost eight months of holding my breath, Sam was able to secure a positive result for me with my case.When your life hangs in the balance, do not settle for anything less than the best. Hire someone who will fight for your rights, someone who is dedicated to your best interests and someone who’s experience will give you a chance for the best possible outcome.For me, that person is Samuel Gaylord. Now that the process has been completed, I can begin to start rebuilding my life. My sincerest appreciation to Sam of Gaylord Popp, I have recommended you since my case has ended and will continue to recommend your services without reservation.

I just wanted to thank you and your Law Firm for the excellent job you did on my work related injury case.

This career ending injury along with the denial of my Sick Leave Injury, Social Security and Accidental Pension benefits was devastating to me.

I was relieved after meeting with you because you were very professional and took the time to give me the legal advice I needed. You explained the process for each separate legal issue I had to address.  All me questions were answered thoroughly and each concern was addressed as it arose with your timely responses to my calls and e-mail.

As I was already dealing with post-surgical issues, doctors and financial concerns I was relieved you were there to deal with the legal issues.

Now that the litigation is complete, as we both know with positive results, I wanted to express my appreciation and make you aware I have already recommended you to several of my former co-workers and I will continue to recommend Gaylord Popp, LLC.

Robbin C. Mercerville, New Jersey

Throughout my case Mr. Gaylord kept me extremely well informed of all the decisions that where made concerning my case.  He was ready to help with advice, suggestions, always gave me quick replies and was always courteous.  I would not recommend any other lawyer to handle compensation and pension cases.

I want to thank you again for representation, professionalism and demeanor. Your winning my suite not only helped me but my family and I want you to know that you are appreciated and that we will recommend you everyone / anyone who needs legal help in with a workman's comp. complaint.

Jim Vincent Springstead

Sam is a class act and someone I would absolutely recommend.  Sam explained to me the process and would respond to my questions.  He gave me advice on what to do and provided realistic expectations for my work injury.  Sam is a class act and someone I would absolutely recommend should any of my friends or family need an attorney.

Maureen, Hamilton, NJ

Judy Singer

I would recommend Gaylord Popp and Sam Gaylord to help anyone with a work related injury.  I was injured and not only did Sam help me through my claim the first time but he  was able to re-open my case and I received additional medical care and an additional award and I still have the right to come back in the future.  I can’t say enough good things about the way my matter was handled.

Kurt, Hamilton NJ

I wanted to say thank you for everything you accomplished with my cases. When I reached out to you I thought it was a shot in the dark at best for being able to seek legal action for my ankle fracture, considering I signed a separation agreement with them to not seek any recourse at all. I thought I made a huge mistake in signing anything! The feeling that I allowed myself to be taken advantage of was overwhelming.

Your prompt return phone call surprised me and after speaking with you and getting assurances that you could help me, it certainly lifted my spirits and gave me hope that all was not lost.

When we met and I told you about the situation, I knew I was in the right place with an attorney who cares. You were so confident in your words and easy to talk to, I wound up talking about my past case. Armed with that information and to my surprise, you explained that my back injury case should be reopened and that a case for the shoulder should be started as well. Not knowing what outcome might come to pass, you reached agreements that I could have never imagined from our initial meeting. It was an incredible outcome to say the least! Thank you so much!

Lastly, I cannot leave out Janis Eisl, he was fantastic! I felt like I was in great hands when we met at the Courthouse. Janis was very personable and made me feel at ease from the moment we met, his professionalism and knowledge were outstanding. He took the settlement very seriously while opposing council appeared to be on another planet and could care less about the job he was there to do. It is my belief that no matter if an outcome is already predisposed of, you should put all your effort into the work you do. Janis certainly personified that!

Thank you to you Sam, Janis, and your entire staff for all your efforts on my behalf!

I want to thank you for taking the time to summarize the past proceeding and memorializing the time frame of the statute of limitations for my case. Moreover, thank you for your council and guidance prior to getting started, as well as the highly professional manner in which you handled the proceeding.

Much success to you and the entire firm! I certainly came to the right law firm to represent me!

Mark Ortutay, Trenton, NJ
I had made a great effort within the county where I was injured to avoid the need for an attorney, but when it was clear I could go no further without one, I was very fortunate to have Gaylord Popp recommended to me. Had I known earlier about them, I would have saved myself from so much of the neglect/abuse I had endured after the injury and avoided unnecessary losses afterwards. This work takes some time, but they guided me well and successfully resolved my case. I would highly recommend them to anyone who has been injured at work and been unable to get the care they require. They are very knowledgeable and understanding of how things are done and what to expect. Don't hesitate to get in touch with them. Thank you!

I was injured at my job and didn't know how the system worked. Sam Gaylord and his staff stepped in and helped me. I received the medical care I needed and the financial assistance I needed. I would never want to get hurt at work but thanks to the team at Gaylord and Popp I understand what it like to have help. Thank you Gaylord and Popp I couldn't have done it without you.


When you are looking and need the best representation go straight to Gaylord Poop. Sam is the best in the business. So happy I found him when I was in need. Professional, Compassionate, and a Winner. And what really meant a lot to me a great human being to others. Someone I am proud to call my Lawyer. Thanx Sam! 5+ Stars!

I hired Mr Gaylord after trying to obtain Social Security Disability benefits on my own for over 18 months. Within a few months of my first contact with him, he won my case and I received my lump sum settlement on Friday. I consulted with him today to make sure all is as it should be and of course it was properly processed. Sam was kind compassionate and professional in all of our dealings. Thank you doesn't seem like it goes far enough to say how appreciative I am for all that he and staff have done for me.


Tanya always kept me informed and made it very simple the day we went in front of the judge.. Tanya is very polite and is a really nice person, always professional also..I recommended Tanya and Gaylord Popp.

Joe D

Always kept me in the loop as the case progressed, made me feel as a priority.


Tanya thank you for your time! You were awesome in the courtroom, I will use you again if something should happen to me! May God continue to bless you! You are awesome!!


Sam worked hard from the beginning to the end. I would recommend him to family or friends if they ever need a lawyer. Thank you for everything you done for me.


Tanya was AWESOME, and very informative. She took her time and explained well in details the expectation.


Tanya was very nice and prompt with communication. Explained everything in detail without any discrepancies and very warming. Totally recommended to other private and public cases!!

Was extremely satisfied with Tanya! She did well and got me more than I expected.

Ms. Phillips' is very meticulous when on your case. She made sure every thing was in it's place even when the other side asked for more information she made sure I got what I needed to give them. Even after every thing was done and over I had a question and she took time out to call me to answer my question. She is truly great at what she does.


I broke my ankle at work. I hired Tanya based on referrals. I basically didn't have to do anything. I kept all my appointments and she did the rest. I was very happy with the results. I would highly recommend her!


Mr. Sam Gaylord and his firm are great! Always advised me of what was currently happening. Also would inquire about my health and any concerns I had during the process. All questions I had were answered. Will always be grateful to him both personally & professionally.

Robin S. Trenton NJ

Tanya was very helpful to me with my compensation case. She kept me informed step by step with my case. I would recommend her to anyone who needed help with a compensation case. Thank you Tanya


Sam did an amazing job got the results that we were looking for. Took a little bit but he got it done. Thanks again!


I needed advice for a permanent state disability claim after calling several lawyers who specialize in this field who wanted either highly exorbitant retainers or wouldn’t touch it. I contacted The Gaylord Popp Law firm I had a consultation with Sam Gaylord who helped me tremendously by advising what would be more beneficial in my case. He was extremely professional courteous and happy to help he is a true Champion of working men and women.

Mr. Robert Leto

I have had the pleasure of working with Mr.Gaylord and his team since 2009. I couldn't be more pleased with this firm. Sam and his colleagues were always there to answer questions I may have had. They worked to get me the compensation I deserved. I highly recommend this team.


Tanya has gone above and beyond to help me with every detail and aspect of my case. She treats me with compassion kindness and patience of a saint. She makes me feel like I matter as an individual instead of just a client. She has been more than successful in fighting for my rights and im truly grateful for all her professionalism and diligent efforts.


Just wanted to say thank you again. If it wasn't for you and your firm for helping me I clearly would not have been approved. Your blunt honesty and clear explanations of procedure showed how clueless I was. Simply put there's a right way and a wrong way to go about this process and I definitely was doing it the wrong way. Again thank you!

Euclides Zoto

Mrs. Tanya is a great lawyer. Anytime I had questions or needed information, she was there for me, even with her busy schedule. She is a hard working lawyer and very professional. I appreciate her and will definitely recommend her. I also look forward to working with her in the future. God bless her.


Very grateful for all that Tanya has done for me. Will definitely use them again, and I highly recommend to others!


Ms. Phillips did an excellent job for me. After applying first on my own to no avail, then handling my appeal, to then finally getting me a review in front of the judge she was great. A true professional in every way. She took the time every time to listen to ALL my questions and concerns and then addressed them one by one and explained each one in detail to me.

I received a favorable outcome with my disability case because of her attention to detail and hard work for me, the client!

I would recommend her to anyone needing help with Social Security cases.


Tanya was very knowledgeable about my case. She made me very comfortable to work with. She explained everything well, on what she expected me to do. Tanya kept in good contact when I called to asked a question. The day of the case she made me feel comfortable in front of the judge. I would mention her name to people who need a lawyer. She has a nice person and made me comfortable dealing with her.


I had a serious issue that overlapped both the Departmet of Treasury and CMS. Trying to navigate these agencies was a nightmare of incorrect or inconsistent inefficiency. A friend recommended Tanya Phillips at Gaylord Popp. She was my savior! She is efficient, professional, knowledgeable and pleasant, a hard to come by combination. My issue has was satisfactorily resolved.


I went to Gaylord Popp as an recommendation from my coworker who had used him and was really happy with the outcome of her case. I went thinking my case was small and that nothing would come out if it. Well to my surprise, Ms. Tanya Phillips was my representation from this office, and they all were persistent, thorough, and consistent which allowed me to get a deserved settlement for my case, and I appreciate them and they did!


Miss Phillips is phenomenal, she was very professional she was informative and she kept me up-to-date on what was going on with my case. I am very pleased; I would recommend her and this Law Firm at any given time, they are the first ones I think of when I'm asked about attorney.


Tanya is the smartest woman I’ve ever met, I even said that to her the first day I met her. I said Tanya you are so smart. Just amazed me I’m sure her family is so proud of her.
