Kristine did a great job handling my case. I was hit by a car while riding my scooter, and suffered various injuries. She was great at guiding me through the whole ordeal, took care of everything and got me a good settlement. She was honest and kind and understanding.
Also has a great fashion sense.

When I was in a car accident a few years ago, it was clear that the other driver was at fault - they ran a red light and smashed into my car, which had the right of way - but we all know how insurance companies are. The defendant tried to claim no fault, that his view was obstructed, a whole variety of things, and my lawyer - who was already awesome - sought Kristine Grelish's support to make sure we would win the case. A brassy tiger of a lawyer, with a giant heart to boot, Ms. Grelish's expertise and willingness to go to bat was immediately obvious. She sought expert witnesses, and attacked the case from every angle, ultimately proving the gravity of my injuries to the defendant's insurance company, who coughed up the policy limit. I was given the fiscal support I need to get proper health care and start working towards recovering from my injuries, and we never set foot in a courtroom. I can't thank Kristine enough.

I had a personal injury claim stemming from an MVA that was not my fault. As an attorney myself, I initially thought I could handle my case against the opposing insurance company on my own. After 2+ years of back and forth and getting nowhere, I was getting extremely frustrated until I was fortunate enough to meet Tini. At our first meeting, Tini patiently explained the process and delineated my options, which was a huge relief in itself. I am so fortunate Tini agreed to take my case despite it being relatively small scale. I felt she gave her 100% the entire time. Tini was very knowledgeable, communicated in a very clear and straightforward way, answered my questions patiently, and was very professional throughout the whole process. A successful settlement was reached, which was amazing given how difficult the opposing insurance company was being the entire time and we had been ready to go to arbitration at that point. I don’t think I could have asked for a better outcome considering the circumstances. One of the other reviewers praised Tini for her capacity for empathy and compassion that fuels her desire to do right for her clients. I also experienced this while working with her and wholeheartedly agree it is one of the many reasons that make her an excellent attorney. I highly recommend Tini and her firm for high quality and professional legal advocacy.

Kristine is polite, professional, and effective. Kristine successfully settled my personal injury claim very quickly, and kept me informed of the status of my case frequently. Since the settlement of my case she has continued to be an invaluable resource to me. She has always been happy to promptly return messages, and provide answers to inquiries. I would not hesitate to recommend her.

They say knowledge is power. If you have ever been around the cutting edge then you can appreciate the dynamic approach of the innovators. I acknowledge the grit and knock-out power needed to get results. I do not understand the law but I can say I know who does. If you have any doubt please research the case history and you will see what a powerful advocate can do. I was completely supported and moved by her arguments. Kristine takes avocation to another level.

Business insurance company refused to cover $25,000 in business losses from a foul odor problem in our suite. Retained Kristine Grelish - after her negotiations with the insurance company, they paid in full. Very professional, yet feisty when she needed to be.

Kristine has all the qualities of a great lawyer - displays thorough knowledge of the law, professional demeanor, ability to maintain objectivity and focus. But what makes her an EXCELLENT lawyer is what also makes her an excellent human being - her capacity for empathy and compassion for her clients that fuels her desire to do what is right for them. Before I contacted Kristine, I was bullied by insurance companies and hospital staff over an auto accident where I was not at fault. What should have been a simple claim turned into a stressful and emotional situation where no one wanted to help and I was unfairly bounced back and forth and treated like a number. I came to Kristine with what seemed an impossible case and she took up my cause and did for me what I could not do for myself - fight back. She started off by doing what the insurance and medical 'professionals' refused to do which was explain the situation and help me understand where I fit in and what to do next. It is very freeing to obtain understanding and know what your options are and after our first meeting I felt a tremendous weight lift off my shoulders. She provided the direction and support to bring resolution to a difficult situation that should have never spiraled out of control the way it did. She has a great understanding of the law and an even greater sense of justice and that makes for an outstanding lawyer. Thank you Tini!

Tini represented me in an automobile accident law suit. When the insurance company would not pay for my medical and out of pocket costs, I contacted Tini's firm and she readily took this case. She is extremely thorough and detailed in gathering information necessary. All "t's" are crossed and "i's" are dotted. An honest person with integrity and kindness making this legal process as painless as possible. All steps through the legal system were explained and outlined clearly so I knew what options were available to me and what possible outcomes may occur.
Tini prepared extensively for this case. Mine was not a big dollar lawsuit, but she still took all time necessary and treated me with respect even though a large dollar settlement might not be forthcoming.
My family and friends were also treated with respect and care when the depositions were processed and when they appeared in court as witnesses. Everyone of them felt comfortable in the courtroom clearly due to the fact of Tini's preparation and her caring personality.
We won this case and the settlement granted was more than I thought possible. This is in total thanks to Tini and the staff at GEE.
I highly recommend Tini. Whenever anyone is in a personal injury accident, call Tini. She will help you through the grueling process of insurance claims and will make sure you get the justice and compensation you deserve. I cannot sing her praises enough.
