  • Christopher S Hildebrand

    Michael Gerity is a very talented trademark and business law attorney who has significant experience and knowledge of the law. Despite being a great person to work with and who communicates extremely well, he provides practical solutions to his clients. I refer my own clients in need of a trademark or business to Michael because I know they will be in good hands.

  • Joan M Bundy

    I first met Mr. Gerity when I was seeking help in an animal custody dispute case that was in civil court (superior and justice) when my normal domain is family court. He was extremely approachable, knowledgeable on contracts and civil litigation (which is what I needed his help for) and engaging with both me and my clients. He knows his stuff and he isn't afraid to try to come up with creative solutions! He is a consummate legal professional.
