Jerry Mead has offered me legal advice on a number of fronts ranging from employment law, real estate law and commercial law. I've found working with him to be not only a very honest experience where I got what I asked for, was told how I would get it and any risks, but also one filled with calm and patience. Jerry is excellent at explaining different parts of process and legal issues in a way that is understandable. He also is very patient answering questions, so that I, as a client, felt empowered that I understood what was happening and could participate in making decisions- important decisions.
I feel that his approach to practicing law is truly one that is inclusive of keeping clients in the know and actively involved in their case or situation. Unlike other lawyers I have worked with, who have always believed they knew it all, Jerry has been open to hearing my thoughts or what I have read, and then discussing that with me in an open and constructive manner. After working with him for several years, I not only feel that I have gotten outstanding legal services, but that I have learned a great deal and am better for it.
I have had extensive experiences with attorneys on many matters including personal, family, business, contracts, intellectual property, negotiations and much more. In all I have had interactions with at least 20 lawyers and legal firms ranging from one-man operations to firms with multi-national offices world-wide. Based upon my experience with lawyers, I am uniquely positioned to compare and evaluate Mr. Mead's (Jerry's) aptitude, skills and most importantly the results for his efforts.
I have known and worked with Mr. Mead for over 10 years. My interaction with him has ranged from personal interests to intricate corporate matters including Contracts, Intellectual Property, Negotiations and many other matters. While I am not, by any means, a fan of lawyers, I have found Jerry to perform far above the call of normal duty. Unlike other lawyers that are obviously there for the billable hours, Jerry takes a personal interest in the matters that you will bring to him.
Based on my experience with various lawyers and legal firms, if you are in need for experienced and competent legal matters at reasonable rates, I HIGHLY recommend Gerald Warren Mead.
Jerry came to the rescue when I was unexpectedly laid off from my job. I was lucky enough to receive a severance package offer from my employer, but before I signed anything, I wanted to get the opinion of a legal representative. Jerry discussed the situation and the components of the agreement with me. His background in such matters was invaluable. I wanted to make sure there weren't any clauses in the agreement that were out of the ordinary, or were not in the best interests of my family. He walked me through the various aspects to consider and helped relieve any anxieties I may have had about signing the agreement. Jerry is focused on understanding the goals of his clients and is quick to respond!
Gerry gave me free advice when it was abundantly clear that my lawyers did not have my interests at heart. I was going through a divorce/custody battle and he explained options to me and what my lawyers should have been considering during the pre trial phase. It was clear to me by the end of the process that I should have hired Gerry and if I go through any more legal situations , I will.
Gerald makes the uncomfortable legal process a lot more tolerable. Naturally no one likes having to deal with the legal system however when working with Gerald you feel a bit safer knowing you have an intelligent attorney working with you every step of the way. His knowlege and experience in navigating the tricky laberenth of court rooms and appeals shows in the end result! Gerald kept me informed and in the loop through out the entire process! If i am ever in need of an attorney he will be my number one choice.
