    I want to offer my highest personal and professional recommendation of Gary Brooks. I have worked with him in litigation, with clients and in professional associations over a period of twenty years. His qualifications, experience and reputation in the legal community are excellent. I would, and frequently do, recommend him, particularly in complex and catastrophic injury cases in both State and Federal Courts.
