    • I recommend Gary Gerson.
    • I hired Gary more than 3 years ago.
    • Gary handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 6-10 lawyers.

    Without getting into the details of my case, let's just say I was looking at spending a long time in jail for a crime I was only indirectly involved with. Other attorneys I spoke to gave me the run around, but Gary was very understanding and walked me through the process step by step. I'm finally back home and now I have a second chance at raising my children, being a husband, and taking care of my family. I can't thank you enough Mr. Gerson.

    • I recommend Gary Gerson.
    • I hired Gary 1-6 months ago.
    • Gary handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Several months ago, I was pulled over for a DUI, and having never had any encounters with the criminal justice system before, I was so entirely grateful for Attorney Gerson. It was such a scary, stressful time, but he came through for me.

    From the moment I called Gary, I knew I had made the right choice. I cannot begin to explain the amount of shame I felt surrounding my arrest and the fear of not knowing how I would get through it, but I eventually did and it was all thanks to Gary's empathy and sound advice.

    He really came through for me and I ended up getting a reckless driving charge with a minimal fine. It was short of a miracle what Mr. Gerson accomplished! Through the entire process, Gary was there for me. He is not only a quality attorney, but just a really great person in general. He cared and I could tell that he cared.

    Thank you, Gary, for helping me get through one of the hardest times in my life! I highly recommend Attorney Gary Gerson and would send anyone who has had a run-in with the law to speak to him first.

    My husband hired Gary after getting a DUI and he was extremely helpful. He answered all of our questions in a timely manner and got him exactly what he needed.

    • I do not recommend Gary Gerson.
    • I hired Gary 1-3 years ago.
    • Gary handled my Speeding / Traffic Ticket matter.

    Hired Mr. Gerson to handle a driver's license issue. Paid 1500 dollars up front for his services. From that point on I only received one form letter that I signed and returned to Mr. Gerson's office. He does not answer phone calls, never completed what he promised, and I am out 1500 dollars. Poor service and I would not recommend him to anyone.

    I highly recommend that if you or a loved one are charged with a crime that you contact Gary Gerson. Gary was absolutely the most communicative lawyer I have ever encountered, we were always able to reach him or Rick one way or another. His professionalism, courtesy and understanding was beyond what I could ever hope for. Impressive skills & wonderful down to earth person to speak to as well as being tough enough to get things done.

  6. Excellent result.
