G&M in the Press

We are frequently contacted by news organizations regarding disability-pension-related stories, or about a particular client’s case for comment.  While we are always mindful that some of our clients would rather not receive publicity, many still believe in sunlight as the best disinfectant, and give us permission to speak with reporters on their behalf to shed more light on their difficulties in dealing with various city and state agencies.  Decisions in cases we've handled are also occasionally reprinted in full by other news organizations.  Below are a few of the news articles in which Jeffrey Goldberg and Timothy McEnaney have been quoted or mentioned, or have had decisions of note published, in relation to their work as disability pension attorneys:​
