About Roger K Gelb

I have been handling personal injury cases, including automobile accident cases, slip and fall cases, and medical malpractice claims, for over 20 years. I have personally handled in excess of 5,000 cases, and I have been selected numerous times by Washingtonian Magazine, as one of the best personal injury attorneys in the Washington, DC area. Additionally, I have never had less than an AV (the highest rating attainable) by the Martindale-Hubbell Legal Directory. Recently, my firm ranked among the top three law firms in the DC area (category: Best Malpractice Representation), by The National Law Journal & Legal Times (2011 Reader's Survey). I was also selected for inclusion on the 2012 Superlawyers list (Plaintiff's Personal Injury), which is based on "a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement" (www.superlawyers.com). I have also been selected as one of the top 10 personal injury lawyers in the Washington, DC area, by the editors of TenLeaders.com, which is a reference tool designed to help professionals find other highly qualified professionals in other fields. Personal injury lawyers are selected based on “Reputation among peer group, based on multiple interviews with professionals who practice apart from the professional in question.” Weight is also given to the “Volume of client work in a given practice area.” TenLeaders.com is not compensated in any way for their endorsements. I am a member of the District of Columbia Bar, the Maryland Bar, the Pennsylvania Bar and I am admitted to practice in all area federal courts, including The United States Supreme Court. Gelb & Gelb, P.C. was founded in 1954 by my father Joseph D. Gelb, The firm is listed on the Bar Register of Preeminent firms.
