Review James Gaston

About Me

We are a selective boutique personal injury law firm. We reperesnt the most seriously injured persons as a result of automobile, products liability, medical malpractice, dangerous premises, and dog bite liability incidents.  We believe "There is no Second Place in Representing Real People, in Real Cases, with Real Injuries." Providing full money compensation for Life Altering Injuries is all that we do...and we do it well. Attorney Gaston has done it for 30 years. His trial success record is better than 90% (though no guaranty is permitted by our Rules of Professional Conduct).
