Review Geraldine Ly

    Geraldine knows what to do and how to do it. She gets results and is a pleasure to work with. I would use her again and would highly recommend her to others. She is the work comp. adjuster's worst nightmare.

  • Not a good experience

    Hired Geraldine based on reviews and it was a big mistake. Other than filing some originating court documents, she did nothing. I had 6 or more unreturned phone calls into her office before I decided that she was not working and requested she no longer represent me. Today I get in the mail from her a lien on any future rewards I might obtain. So basically she's trying to get paid for doing nothing, and she's making it hard for me to obtain proper representation (when another atty sees that she will get some of any proceeds, it will make it hard for that attorney to work properly as they may get a reduced pay, or ultimately it will take a bigger bite out of anything I may receive (I'm the one that was injured and has to live with the disability!).
    Shame on you Geraldine - that's a bad way to conduct your business and dirty money when and if you get it.

    Geraldine Gakay Ly’s response: “I am sorry you had a bad experience while you were with my firm for less than six months. We had asked you to forward the emails that you had sent to our office which you claimed were not responded to but you were unable to do so. Each time you called our office and spoke to a live person, you were asked to make an appointment to speak with me since I am often in court and at the workers compensation boards fighting my cases on behalf of all of my clients. No appointment was scheduled. I have not been paid a dime on your case which is what a contingency fee agreement means. I have spent hours filing your application and pages of paperwork with the Workers Compensation Board, dealing with the insurance company, arranging medical treatment, and reviewing copies of records regarding your case. We even filed an appeal for denial of your medical treatment by the insurance company. We have left numerous phone messages with the adjuster regarding your medical treatment denial. The California workers compensation system is a disaster with statutory delays, opportunity for denials, and low compensation while you are unable to work. Your frustration is with the slow process in the system and the delays by the insurance company. If my lien for the amount of time and work that my office and I have spent is what is preventing you from getting a new attorney (which is very curious to me), then I am happy to withdraw my lien. Please have your new attorney contact me so that the proper paperwork can be filed.”

    Finally, I have an attorney in California that I would use for any legal situation I might have. From the very first phone call and meeting with her, I felt very comfortable. I immediately trusted her judgement, explanations and planning. She provided me with opinions based on the law and with her experience in dealing with many other cases.
    Geraldine acquired a very fair settlement for me and her fee structure was extremely reasonable. I might add that I am not the easiest person to deal with but she and her staff are very patient and understanding.
    Her demeanor is reassuring and confident. Geraldine and her staff are very professional, considerate and polite and they regularly kept me informed by mail, faxes, emails and phone calls.
    In my personal and professional life, I sometimes need the services of an attorney and Geraldine has my business.
    Without reservation, I absolutely recommend Geraldine Ly and her exceptional staff to anyone needing legal services.
    Thank You,

    Geraldine is an amazing lawyer. Trustworthy, honest and all things you would expect from a great lawyer! She helped make a very tumultuous time in my life easier. I would definitely go to her again and again and again! One of her Assistants Claudia always seemed to talk down on me but overall the experience with Geraldine was great! And I would highly recommend her to everyone.

    I was refered to Geraldine Ly as I reached my wits end with an unresponsive and iressponsonsible attorney who let my case "slip through the cracks".
    To say the least G Ly is a life saver. She is attentive, knowledgeable, expeditious, and her erudition is evident.
    My case was closed for over a year and I emailed her because I was having trouble using my School Voucher.
    On a Sunday, she emailed the Insurance adjuster and cc's me in the email demanding this be taken care of.
    If I ever need any sort of an Attorney I will be asking her for a referral.
    Thanks G ly!!!

    When I first got injured I had no idea what else was to come. I was referred to Ms. Ly.....I had TONS of questions.....had no idea how workers comp worked.......but sitting with her just set my mind at ease.

    She is sooooooo pleasant, understands your situation, and oh my gosh SOOOOOOOOO knowledgeable, I felt very comfortable with her.

    When I email her with questions and/or concerns, she answers promptly......sometimes she has even answered in the evening.

    She truly cares and shows that she will take the time for her clients. I trust her 100%.

    If you are looking for counsel that is not only thorough, professional, highly calculated and strategic, but also personable and friendly, then be sure to discuss your case with Alison and Geraldine. I faced a daunting task - suing the city for overstepping its bounds and pushing through a measure that impacted many residents without regard to what is legal, fair or just to its citizens. I interviewed several attorneys and the only ones who were willing to roll up their sleeves and get it done in the name of pursuing relief for my neighbors and I was Alison and Geraldine. Within a few short months, their persistence and graceful maneuvering helped us quickly reach a settlement with the city. A full repeal of the measure followed shortly after - never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined that such progress could be made in such a short amount of time. In my case, Alison and Geraldine took on a case that other attorneys wouldn't, went right at the problem hard, never backed down and they fought until they achieved our desired results. I highly recommend them!

    The Workers’ Comp Adjuster ignored the Doctors and denied my case. Most people in this situation will just give up, but that’s why the Adjuster does this.

    So I met with Ms. Ly and got a whole bunch of questions answered that had been bugging me. We determined the most practical path to take and I’m taking it right now. I have no intention of having the Doctors agree with me, just to be denied anyway. Ms. Ly has been there to continuously answer my questions while I now go through this process.

    Yes, this is stressful, that’s what the bad guys are banking on. The stress of a health issue/loss of quality of life, then a separate legal battle at the same time is rough. However, she’s kept the stress limited. I’m happy to have her in my corner.

  • Great Lawyer!
