    I worked as a law clerk for Gil and found him to be an excellent attorney. He is very knowledgeable, personable, and thorough. Moreover, he is a great litigator, with a proven track record. I definitely would recommend him without hesitation.

    Gil is the 'go to' guy on all personal injury matters. In Gainesville or Ocala, Gil would be my first call for motor vehicle accidents, slip and falls, or anything negligence related (especially wrongful death). I have seen him in action and he's who I'd hire. Go get 'em Gil!
