I hired Gary to represent me in a workers comp case in which I was severely concussed. I didn't even know I was eligible for a settlement, I was looking for a lawyer because I'd had been out of work on workers comp for 3 months and figured it was time to see a pro to see what my options were in case I didn't get better. Gary explained the entire process to me and what was going to change and lo and behold the attitude of every one of my Doctors suddenly changed from trying to push me back to work to trying to make sure I was getting actually getting better.
As to some of the complaints here, Gary is a in a family operation and not a big law firm. We did most of our correspondence over e-mail and I know I annoyed him with questions but I'm guessing so does every client he has. And if he is in court he can't exactly answer his phone. When I had valid concerns and questions he answered them immediately...but yeah sometimes I'd ask a bunch of random what-if questions and I wouldn't hear back from him. Because he's a lawyer and he's got important things to do.
But when my workers comp insurance company intentionally tried to screw me he was on it. My disability checks were turned off and I was given 4 different reasons why...Gary got the checks turned back on and the missing amount added to my settlement.
At one point we were talking about a particular settlement amount that had been offered and I said I just wanted my company to treat me like they said they treated their employees. I said I was pissed and in my upcoming deposition I might not be able to contain my anger. He talked me down and said that just because the other side is being corrupt doesn't mean we have to be. We can win by being the better people and being right. My first thought was "actually I could use a little more teeth in my shark there Mr. Jackson" but he was not only right, he delivered. He called the insurance company on their actions and threatened to take them to EC court and that's when my checks came back and my settlement offer jumped another $12000.
The legal system takes time, lawyers are busy people and you are not their only client. Gary always managed to get back to me about the important stuff and came through on everything he said he would. I would definitely recommend him.

Don't believe what you see on the internet. Mr Jackson, at first sounded like a great attorney. He would work with me, because he understood how a layman would feel. Since he had been in the same position many years ago, before becoming an attorney. He makes false statements, to lore you in. He was NOT there for me. He never returned my emails or phone calls. His office staff was consistently losing my documents. In which, I had to fax back over to the office on several occasions at my expense. I would NOT recommend him!!!

his office is very small and 1 and only staff is horrible!! You can never reach him, very unresponsive. I was the one fighting the insurance not him. My doctor was waiting for some papers for about 2 month and he never sent it so I fired his ass!

I found Gary Jackson after I fired 2 other attorneys that failed to handle my Workman's Comp case competently. Not only did Gary address my case quickly, with dedication and expertise, but I also received a surprisingly large settlement. I never thought that I would say this about an attorney...but Gary is a very real and compassionate person; that actually cares about his client's health and well being. That is a rare statement these days and I am so grateful that I went with my instincts and let Gary and his staff take my case. Gary continually communicated with me personally; was always pleasant to talk to and he never made me feel like a case number on some file. Thank you Gary, for all of your hard work and for never letting me down.

I would not recommend Gary because he was very unresponsive. It was difficult being his client because he rarely if ever returned any of my calls.
