I was in two separate car accidents in 2012 and was just trying to navigate my way through the unknown process of trying to get treatment for my pain. It wasn't until one of my physical therapist recommended I get in touch with the Law office of Adler and Giersch. Melissa Carter took my case and that was life changing. I had never worked with a lawyer before and didn't know what to expect. Melissa exceeded all of my expectations and words can not express my gratitude! It was because of her that I was able to receive treatment from the best medical professionals in the Seattle area. If it wasn't for her I don't know where I would be on my road to recovery. Melissa was great to work with, every time we spoke she listened to everything that I had to say and she answered all of my questions. She held my hand through the entire process until the end. After meeting Melissa I felt like FINALLY someone was looking out for me!
I am a Licensed Medical Massage Practitioner. I contacted Adler-Giersch Law Firm after having a motor vehicle accident in 2009. Melissa Carter inherited my case and fought a great fight for me...we ultimately settled out of court in 2014. Yes this is a long time to have a case pending but Melissa kept on until she got what she thought was a fair offer. Her prompt response to each and every one of my emails was tremendous! I never felt out of the loop or that my case was unworthy. Melissa will be my go to in the future and I will refer to her as often as I get a chance.
Melissa is not just a great lawyer but a wonderful person. She is a very passionate and caring person who is incredibly knowledgable on what she does. She always kept us informed as to where the case stood and what we were going to do next. Being this was the first time that we have gone through a law suit, we had no idea how the process worked. Melissa took her time to answer all our questions and made sure that we were well informed on our options. We were very happy with the outcome of the case and are grateful that she represented us. We would not hesitate to recommend her.
I was referred to Melissa and Richard by a friend, and I will always remember my first conversation with them. They were so friendly and comfortable to talk to, and they immediately guided me on the steps it would take to clean up the mess that had been created after my accident. I have never been in an accident before, nor have I never had to hire an attorney before so this whole process was foreign to me. I was so overwhelmed dealing with the insurance company, and I felt I was at a loss with my treatment from the accident I was in. Melissa kindly took me under her wing and supported and fought for me for 4 years. She was there through some of the toughest moments in my life, and I cannot thank her enough. If I had any concerns or questions she was easy to contact, and I felt I could be completely honest with her. I will forever be grateful for the amazing work she did for me.
Bright, compassionate, rigorously knowledge seeking, and makes you feel as though your case is her only case due to the attention she provides. I had a very difficult case to represent in that my primary injury was rare and not well understood even by most physicians. Melissa found the top doctors not only for me to see, but to help educate herself and the defense about the nature of my injury and its long term impact to my life. She deserves to earn an honorary M.D.. My settlement was both financially substantial and is aiding me in my emotional healing from the pain and suffering I have endured. I would not hesitate to recommend her.
Melissa, from day 1, was on my case like you'd expect an attorney to do. Very thorough, energetic, and professional. I could not be happier with the outcome of my case. I think both of us were surprised that our outcome exceeded all of our expectations. That is who she is, she did not disappoint and hit em where it hurts. I would definitely use Melissa again and refer her to other friends.
Melissa was a great lawyer. She was encouraging, responsive and willing to fight for me and give it her all. I also felt she had a lot of integrity, professionally and personally. She was also positive and non-judgmental..very honest, and definately a pleasure to work with. I also think her legal skills were top rate and she knows her stuff and entirely capable of doing what's best for her client. Highly recommended.
Melissa rocks! She and the Adler - Giersch staff are all so professional. What impressed me most about Melissa is, she takes her time - is very patient and I never felt like she's trying to rush me out. I had been in several previous car accidents, so Melissa had to go to each of my doctors to get statements. this was very time consuming and the Insurance Companies wanted to play the blame game. She was able to settle my case in a fair and equitable way. I also appreciated her letting me know when she was out of town, in case I had questions. I would recommend Melissa to anyone I know in need of a good attorney.
Melissa provided exceptional advacocy for me and my husband after being run over by a semi truck on our motorcycle out of state. Dealing with trauma to near death extent was more than we could handle. We were blessed to find comfort and confidence In exceptional advocacy ! We would highly recomend Melissa Carter for your complex case. Thank you Melissa "You Rock"
Melissa negotiated my case in record time. Her efficient, knowledgeable and kind ways made my settlement a breeze. She took care of me and I was very please with the out come. I would recommend her to anyone.
