My husband and I where falsely accused by disgruntled neighbor to cps .We weren't taken to court or anything but we wanted to make sure and have legal guidance.Starting with the initial appointment which was scheduled for 1pm I called at 12:30 to to see if we could push it up an hour because my husband had a last minute meeting or that I would keep my 1pm and go by myself.He didnt return calls or contact me UNTIL 2:30PM!I should have realized it then.Ok so we ended up meeting with him which im pretty sure it was a free consultation.He seemed Excellent. That night my husband said what if they retaliate*meaning Child services(we read alot on the Internet and where scared confused etc) Anyhow we called him and asked what if they come to take our kids?!He responded well "thats up to you". Right away that was a Red flag..I mean isn't security ,reassurance what he was supposed to provide?I went on and researched hours and came across One of if not THE BEST attorney in nyc .We called her and made an appt My God was she heaven sent!! We had a meeting with cps which was set for that friday *She prepared us guided us and gave us that peace of mind which is what we had paid "George Gilmer "for n he failldd to provide..speaking of..We had asked him if we should go to the meeting and he had said to "let him think"about it:/ after that he didn't return our calls until the morning of the meeting!! After that he went on vacation..when he returned I spoke to him and "he said he was tired" ??I guess from his vacation..ok ill fast forward..He ended up doing absolutely nothing. We ended up with the other attorney paying her as well *BUT She TRULLY EARNS HER $$ and is Honerable .. He on the other hand kept our $
I have known George for over 5 years. His work is exceptional, and he really cares about his clients. I had a very difficult divorce, and George was able to assist me with having this process completed in a timely matter. I highly recommend George to assist with any legal related issues.
My case was a custody case. Mr. Gilmer was knowledgeable in this area. He was prompt on court days and reassuring that this case would be in my favor. He provided professional advice throughout the case and was available via phone each time I had concerns. Even after the case I was able to reach out to him to seek professional guidance on a completely different matter.
I first retained Mr. Gilmer's services when I was getting divorced from my husband. He did not only represented me in court but he was very supportive throughout my ordeal, he kept me informed and made the process clear and easy to understand. A few years later, after my divorce I needed him for another case and once again Mr. Gilmer was available to provide his professional advise and dedicated services. I am more than happy to recommend George Gilmer as your lawyer.
Mr. George Gilmer has been a great asset to me in handling a bankruptcy case. His staff and himself were very knowledgeable in dealing with this of type situation. They sat down with me and my family and made us feel comfortable about the case. I recommend George for upfront honest legal representation that will work diligently in getting results in your favor.
Mr. Gilmer handled complex civil litigation matters for me, including for a case against the City of New York. It involved the litigation of my Chapter 11 bankruptcy and a number of other ancillary issues related to my case. Mr. Gilmer was excellent in court and was aggressive when he needed to be. He was also very tactful in general.
Mr. Gilmer also represented me in the Second Circuit Court of Appeals and impressively made oral argument in front of now Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.
My company has benefitted greatly from Mr. Gilmer's representation. Mr. Gilmer was available to speak to me when I had concerns and was not aloof like some attorneys can be. He was always upfront about his billing and never made money the centerpiece of our relationship. I highly recommend Mr. Gilmer and I am currently using him for other legal matters. Thank you Mr. Gilmer for your kindness, compassion and dedication.
My experience with George came as a result of a litigation I wanted to initiate against a business partner who was defrauding a business we started together. George was recommended by a friend of mine who had used him in the past on another legal matter and who said their experience with him was wonderful. After having met with George during my initial consult, I immediately realized he was an extremely knowledgeable lawyer with great interpersonal skills. After my meeting with him, I hired him to represent me on my case and it was the best decision I've ever made. George was amazing in court and his ability to negotiate and litigate were instrumental in helping me save my business. I highly recommend him to anyone needing a tenacious lawyer who is honest and has his client's back.
Mr. Gilmer handled my uncontested divorce matter which ended last month. I shopped around for quite some time for a lawyer that would not charge me an arm and a leg for a simple divorce. I was going to do the divorce myself but the first time I submitted the papers the clerk rejected them because I omitted information concerning my custody arrangement with my soon to be ex husband. I called Mr. Gilmer and he was very helpful. He gave me a free consultation on the phone and assured me that he could fix the mistakes on my divorce papers quickly and get my divorce processed.Prior to speaking with him I was very skeptical about the low fee that he charged and thought this was just a tactic to get me in the door. He told me straight up that he would not charge me anymore than what he quoted initially. He lived up to his promise, corrected the papers within two days and got me my divorce. I am very happy with the services he provided to me. I highly recommend him to handle any legal matter.
This law firm is very knowledgeable, trustworthy, responsive, and has always kept me informed of my case. The also consider the clients to the utmost respect. I highly recommend this law firm.
George has proven himself to be an outstanding litigation attorney. I would highly recommend his services as he is prompt, knowledgable and professional.
In my time of need he was always there for me, providing all the answers to all my questions and helping me to get a great result. Thanks George.
