I've used Gary Carlson for several legal matters and was impressed each time. I never felt talked down to or uninformed. Experience is a big factor, I feel in dealing with legal matters -- there's the law, and then there's what happens in the court system, precedents that have been set, and cases that reveal the behavior of jurors, etc. Gary helped our family with a personal injury case which went well, as well as advised us on helping a relative being charged with a crime. He told me also in one instance that he would take the case, but was honest about the outcome and that he wouldn't pursue it, saving me quite a bit of money. I recommend his services without reservation.
