personal thanks
I had the pleasure of meeting with Gary and his son Carl for a consultation with the full intent of engaging them for representation. They not only provided excellent informative advise professionally but shared a caring, comforting demeanor in making some difficult questions seem much easier. I would highly recommend their firm to any and all. You will not be disappointed. Patrick

With Gary K Norgaard I really don't know where to begin. He handled my 3rd Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. I was told by other Lawyers this was going to be a tough one. I owed $100,000 Dollars & applied for all my credit cards without being in the " workplace ". That can be called " Fraud ". Meeting MR. Norgaard for the first time was like meeting an old friend. I felt like I had known him for years. His brain is so quick he had the entire case configured in a few minutes. He put me immediately at ease & made me so comfortable. He told me having my Bankruptcy " Discharged " was a done deal. And that's exactly what happened on February 23 , 2018 , my case was " Discharged ". My Attorney I sat in front of the " Trustee " for 60 seconds. Then I was on my way home , a massive burden off my shoulders. Personally , Gary Norgaard is the " warmest , easygoing , likable , funny man you can meet. Meetings with him were figuratively us sitting at his desk with both our feet on his desk. His entire staff , other Lawyers , Paralegals , etc , well one was friendly than the other. What a place to work! What a family friendly atmosphere. Gary Norgaard is my Attorney the rest of my life , my mothers Attorney & my brothers Attorney. Norgaard O'Boyle is our family Law Firm. Before going anywhere else , pop into the Norgaard O'Boyle Law Firm , that will be your last Legal stop. As a matter of fact I can't wait for my next dealing with Gary , its fun to just shoot the breeze with him!
