Sometimes life hits you square in the face and you need someone to help pick you up off the floor. Last summer, I was 40 years old and I was facing charges that carried the possibility of 40 years imprisonment. Thanks to Attorney William Gerace and his team, I will not spend a single day behind bars.
Attorney Gerace did more than handle my legal case; he was a voice of caring wisdom during the moments I most needed advice and simple human concern. He used the expertise and respect within the system that he has built up over 35 years and was able to influence the prosecutor and the judge to see me as a person and not as a crime-- this was the pivotal factor in my sentencing.
And... he did it all at a fair price. Attorney William Gerace, his legal associate Rebecca Paolino, and his lovely office staff are - well, they're kinda my heroes nowadays.
If you find your life has gone sideways on you and you need this kind of help, hire Gerace and Associates and let them help you, too.
I dont know how this attorney does it but he is a wizard!!! He has saved my butt on numerous occassions. Well worth the money.
I hired William Gerace for a criminal offense. After going to court for months, he never remembered my name. I was really surprised when we stood outside of the courthouse and he said that he could get me AR (plead guilty to a felony), but I had to remind him that I had a prior; then he suggested Alford Docket that I didn't have to admit guilt (again, plead to a felony); and finally I had to remind him of our first conversation that I was innocent of this offense and was not going to plead to a crime in which I did not commit. He finally said,â€ Would you plead a misdemeanorâ€? This conversation lasted about 3 to 4 minutes. It was like I was negotiating with a prosecutor himself. He knew (before the conversation started) that I could plead only to the misdemeanor, then why did he start with wanting me to plead to a felony twice if he knew the prosecutor was accepting the misdemeanor??? I was very disappointed.
I hired Attorney Gerace to represent me in a criminal matter. Gerace handed my case over to his associate, Jeremy Donnelly, who was inexperienced at best, and did a poor job of representation. He waited too long in filing my appeal and therefore the appeal was denied. Another of my claims was denied by the appellate court because Attorney Donnelly failed to bring up the matter at my original hearing. Attorney Gerace also refused to provide me with transcripts of my hearings for which I had paid, until I filed a complaint with the grievance committee. Attorney Gerace greatly overcharged me for his services, lied on several occasions, and failed to keep me informed of developments.. Do yourselves a favor and hire another attorney.
