A lawyer who really cares about his/her clients...
My expectations were completely exceeded and I would recommend Harold Gerr to anyone who needs to hire a lawyer. I can not say enough positive things about my experience with Mr. Gerr and his staff. The herculean effort they put into my case was extraordinary. His hard work grew my settlement from twenty thousand dollars to several hundred thousand dollars when all was said and done. His staff never failed to keep me in the loop through correspondence, so I always felt confident where we were headed during the process. Not only did he work tirelessly for me, but him and his staff cared a great deal and showed it through their warmth and sincerity in every meeting and phone call.

TOP NOTCH ATTY & esp. if you've suffered bad treatment from other attys! He's a rare find: HONEST, GOOD, not a money-grabber.
Harold Gerr is not only a top-notch atty but the one who rescued my case from the hands of a nightmare atty who had lied to me for years & done nothing. Harold answered my initial phone call on a holiday when few other lawyers were even around. He then proceeded to do everything my previous lawyer had not: he took action immediately, and actually rescued my case which had been dismissed for being filed too late by the previous atty. Harold was not only able to successfully get my case reinstated but, unlike the previous atty, Harold followed up each action with a mailed confirmation. Finally, an atty who told the TRUTH and CONFIRMED it in writing!! Finally a REALLY GOOD ATTY, and one who restored my faith in the profession! (It is in fact a profession that is supposed to help people when they're going thru deep trials and as such, an atty has the power to do great good or harm.) Harold furthermore persevered and was finally able to break thru many hindrances to obtaining the evidence necessary. He was brilliant to watch in action during his interrogations with the defense, like a stealthy shark setting up for the attack. I was also impressed that he quickly commanded the respect of other attys present because of his superior experience and demeanor. In conclusion: Harold is honest, even blunt many times. He won't schmooze you. He'll tell u in the beginning whether or not he can handle your case. If he says he can, then know u have a RARE GEM OF AN ATTY, one who is head and shoulders above all the other attys I've used. You have chosen- and been chosen :) - by the finest. Have a blessed day!
