| Hired Attorney
Professional, Competent and Compassionate Estate Attorney
I was involved in a first cousin's estate, and it was a highly emotional situation; it involved my siblings. I hired Gary after my siblings (unbeknownst to me) fired the estate attorney we all initially agreed to hire. At some point during the long, drawn-out process, I lost the family I had always known. It was an extremely painful time of my life. Not only did Gary provide legal services, he also provided compassionate support to me as a person. Gary has an excellent grasp of how best to handle complicated, highly-charged estate matters. He listened to me regarding what I was and was not willing to do, and he took my personal values into account throughout the negotiations. In the end, I compromised instead of going to court because of the emotional trauma I believed seeing my siblings in a courtroom setting would surely cause me. However, there is no doubt in my mind that Gary was the lawyer I wanted to fight for me in court if it had come to that. I cannot say enough good things about Gary. He was always prepared for our calls and meetings; he kept me in the loop every step of the way; and he was extremely responsive. Gary (supported by his friendly and helpful paralegal Christina) is a great attorney to have on your side. Gary knows the real value is not always in dollars and cents but in helping his clients overall. Gary not only handled the estate matter with a high level of expertise utilizing his in-depth knowledge of the law, but he also helped me survive the whole ordeal on a personal level. I feel very blessed to have Gary as my lawyer.
