Immaculate Lawyer
Mr Gatner represented me in a automobile accident. When I first met him I was very comfortable. I was very nice made me feel very comfortable also. He speaks to you slowly and explains everything he’s speaking to you about. He’s very intelligent and gets the job done. He’s very pleasant and keeps a smile on his face. Mr Gatner is a wonderful attorney and person. If I could give more then a 5 I would. Wonderful lawyer all around.

Great Experience!
Hired Rich to represent my wife and I in a personal injury case. Working with Rich was great. His knowledge and experience enabled us to build trust quickly with him. He communicated very well. Was always available and responsive to our questions and was proactive in reaching out to keep us informed on our case. We appreciated his ability to explain everything in a very understandable way. Best of all, we were very happy with the outcome of our case. Would definitely hire Rich again.

Professional & Persistent
Richard GANTNER represented our family for a auto accident that my wife was involved in. She was hit by a car as she was a pedestrian. He battled representing my wife with the insurance company to get a settlement. If it wasn’t for his hard , persistent work I highly doubt our insurance company would have settled the claim. He’s the guy if you need a tremendous lawyer!

DO NOT look elsewhere! He IS the best.
Like the average American, I have had my share of experiences with lawyers that certainly live up to the many stereotypes that exist in society today about lawyers and what you get for your hard-earned money. I retained Rich over 5 years ago for a medical malpractice case, and this review won't even do a FRACTION of the justice it should to express my satisfaction, appreciation and gratitude for the services I received. From the first consultation, I knew that he took my case because he believed in me and wanted the best for me from the start. He is thorough, on of THE most hard-working individuals I know, and he left no stone unturned. When working with my family and friends, and in choosing experts for testimony, he settled for nothing less than the best match to achieve the desired result and empathized with my situation on a human level. The final resolution to my case was BEYOND my expectations, and I truly do believe that I would NOT have had this outcome if I hadn't chosen Rich. He has been compassionate, tough when I needed it, and completely transparent every step of the way. When we reached the finish line, I truly couldn't take credit for what had been done, he earned the win with every late night, weekend away from HIS family, and sleepless night that he poured into this case. I implore you, if you are on the fence, to make the call and reach out to his office. His secretary Maureen will do everything she can to accommodate you, as the service they provide is not contained to Rich and his mahogany desk. If you want to win, hire him. I GUARANTEE you will not regret it.

Highly Recommend
I retained Mr. Gantner to represent me regarding a personal injury that I suffered. At our initial meeting I was impressed not only by his professionalism and impressive resume but his concern for my current health. He has an honest work ethic that stood up to his clear and precise understanding of the law. An expertise that was evident as we proceeded through the legal process ethically. Mr. Gantner was reliable and kept me informed of each development while he worked toward my positive settlement negotiation. I highly recommend Mr. Gantner to be your attorney.

Employment law matter
Mr. Gantner is representing the municipality in an employment law matter. He has exhibited extensive skill in this area of law. He has kept us informed regarding the litigation process and the legal alternatives available to us.

Dedicated and Compassionate
Mr Gantner represented both my wife and I in two separate automobile accident cases. Her case was difficult for many reasons including the coverage we had at the time of the accident. The case took what seemed to us to go on forever but Mr. Gantner kept us informed, calmed, and was able to overcome those obstacles helping us get a fair settlement. I would recommend him.
