What is a 10.0 Superb Avvo Rating?
Avvo, which is considered one of the most respected lawyer rating services in the United States, bases their ratings on numerous factors, including those listed below:
Because lawyers do not have the ability to change their scores, Avvo ratings are considered one of the most unbiased of all rating systems. Therefore, these ratings provide an assessment of a lawyer’s professional and legal backgrounds that can be considered alongside peer endorsements and client reviews.
Shrager & Sachs was able to settle a case for an emergency room nurse who developed complex regional pain syndrome after incurring a spinal accessory nerve injury during a lymph node biopsy while under receiving diagnostic care at a hospital in central Pennsylvania.
The spinal accessory nerve controls functions related to the muscles in the shoulders and the head, such as shrugging the shoulders or tilting the head back. It can also affect motions of the arms, including extension and other larger arm movements originating in the shoulders.
Immediately after the biopsy, the patient began to experience injury symptoms promptly. The doctor’s defense was that there was no way that the procedure could have injured her in such a manner as she had claimed, as the nerve was too “deep” in the lymph node to be accessible.
Attorney Rob Sachs, Jr. – managing partner of Shrager & Sachs – will be speaking at an upcoming legal education conference next Monday, March 23. The conference – Auto Litigation 3.0 – is being hosted by 360 Advocacy and will be held at the Encore in Las Vegas. Speakers include some of the nation’s top and most accomplished injury lawyers who will be sharing their insight on handling auto accident cases.
Mr. Sachs’s presentation – Maximizing Wrongful Death Damages – is designed to help lawyers who handle cases involving fatal accidents. As is often the case, fatal auto collisions can result in tremendous emotional and financial damages for victims’ families. Mr. Sachs will be focusing on help lawyers improve case preparation, discovery, settlement negotiation, and trial advocacy skills so they can maximize compensation for families.
Shrager & Sachs is pleased to announce that Managing Partner Rob Sachs, Jr. has recently settled a central Pennsylvania medical malpractice case. The case was settled for just under $1 million.
The case involved a surgical injury to our client’s “spinal accessory” nerve during a lymph node biopsy procedure. In addition to suffering from a loss of function of the muscles typically controlled by the spinal accessory nerve, our client also developed a highly disabling “complex regional pain syndrome.”
Coincidentally, our client was a former emergency room nurse at the very hospital where the malpractice occurred. As a result of her injury, she will never work again a
I highly recommend this firm based on their expertise and outcomes. In addition, Rob Sachs genuinely cared about my emotions re: bringing my case (and all of the ancillary tasks surrounding it) to closure. Rob fully understood what was important to me and my family. Well done; thank you!

This firm represented our family in the wrongful death of my father. They greatly exceeded our expectations. Attorney Rob Sachs and his team went the extra mile. On a scale of 1-10, they are an 11! There may be bigger law firms in the Phila./Pa area, but none better!M. Scanlan

I worked with Rob and his team after I sustained a head injury in a car accident which resulted in years of treatment and loss of work. Rob and his staff were incredibly knowledgeable and successful in fighting for me. I felt as though Rob was personally invested in my case and recovery. After my case was won and "closed", Rob continued to be available as a resource. When the nature of my needs evolved to a different area of law, he referred me to another professional yet still remained involved. I would highly recommend Rob Sachs to anyone seeking legal representation.

I referred a rather complicated medical malpractice-wrongful death case to Rob Sachs of Shrager, Spivey & Sachsand am very thankful that I did. Two other prominent law firms in Philadelphia had reviewed the matter and turned the case down. Rob offered to give us another opinion and, after thoroughly examining all of the reports and medical records, he notified us that he would undertake representation. He very aggressively pursued the claim and eventually obtained a seven figure settlement! Remember, this was a case that two other medical malpractice firms had turned down, and the family of the deceased victim had all but given up until we got the case to Mr. Sachs. Can't say enough good things about him, his work ethic, his knowledge and expertise in this complex field of law and the results he obtained for the family!! I would highly recommend Rob to anyone looking for a great lawyer to handle their case!.
