I cant even give this guy a single star....first of all, he was almost an hour late to the consultation....then after 12 minutes of going over some basics, i am confronted by a request to surrender $150 for his 12 minutes of service......Before i forget, let me add that to retain his services for my court date next week would run me $3500......this guy actually brags about his low costing services......Showing up to his consultation puts you in the hole for $150.00 just for you to find out that hes way too expensive for regular citizens to afford......thanks for nothing Mr Gilmer!.....thanks a lot

My husband and I fell on some hard financial times and decided to file for bankruptcy. We found George Gilmer of The Gilmer Law Firm in Brooklyn, NY online and decided to use his services after sitting for a free consultation. We paid him a flat fee of $699 for the service.
Once Gilmer had the money we never heard from him again. We tried calling him and left numerous messages on his voicemail which he eventually returned a couple of weeks later. He let us know he has been very busy and advised us that we would have to pay him more money if we wanted our case moved to the top his priorities. We were shocked and dismayed.
We asked him for a refund as he eventually never provided the service and kept our money. We decided to dispute the fraud with our bank. He lied numerous times to us and our bank that he ever received the money at all. He then sent my husband several text messages stating he would refund the money and until this day he never has.
We sued him civilly, he didn't show up for the court date so we are waiting for the new one to roll around so we can expose him for the deceptive practice. We would not recommend this attorney to our worst enemy. Stay clear of George Mark Gilmer of The Gilmer Law Firm, PLLC

I hired Mr. George Gilmer as my attorney in 2015. He was very attentive and responsive to my needs. His quality of service was done in a timely manner and very professional. As far as pay rate is concern he was very reasonable. So I hired him again in another case, this year 2016. Once again he did it again. You can't go wrong with George Gilmer as your attorney.

George was a breath of fresh air! My family is going thru a ACS case. George was not interested in taking my cash like some other lawyers were during a very stressful time. He was very informative and put me at ease. Thank you for restoring my faith in people. Beware of these other lawyers who care nothing but lining there pockets. Thank you!

Please read this review and allow this review to stand firm in your mind.
I am a person who respects and treasures integrity, in fact It's my motto and I can be often heard saying, "everyone is treated with dignity and respect"
I believe that it's not the fall that matters it's the come back. If you can expose any wrong you should also go to extreme measures to expose the right.
In May of 2016 I wrote a review sharing my experience with Mr. George Gilmer it was not favorable and Today I want to update those who read.
A few weeks ago all that I believed the world to be was gone and I had begun feeling as if this world was dark and without notice Mr Gilmer reached out to me and it was this moment that God showed me that's not true People with integrity and respect still exist despite all that's dark in this world.
Mr. Gilmer and I had a opportunity to talk and apologies where given from him and myself, things like this is totally unheard of and because of it I will forever be grateful. What integrity, respect and professionalism it takes to ensure by any means necessary your client is left happy and Mr Gilmer has done not just that but beyond. Mr. Gilmer's actions and goodwill surpasses my wildest imagination and shows that Integrity, honesty and kindness does still exist.
New developments has resulted in my guardian case and Mr.Gilmer has taken the particulars of the new case development and has been the attorney on the case pro bono. I immediately teared as he offered to do this, no one made him, he certainly did not have to it simply was in his heart to do. This is the kind of person I trust with anything that's important to me. Not only do I respect Mr Gilmer I applaud his courage. I am going to rehire Mr Gilmer on a new development. I am with Mr Gilmer and sincerely endorse him. I believe and recommend any person with the level of integrity that Mr Gilmer has shown. I also wish to openly thank you Mr. Gilmer for all of your efforts but most importantly for giving my hope back because of you I believe again thank you sir
Respectfully and Whole heartedly submitted

I had a ACS case followed by a child custody case and George delivered inside and outside of the court room. Very professional and his character speaks volumes. Thanks for the service.

My experience with this attorney started well the initial consult we reviewed the case details and he explained my options We chose the direction and I paid my retainer. 1st day of court he was there the case ended up being adjourned for a few months and this is where it went to hell. I tried calling my attorney to share updates on the case for weeks I called left messages with his live answering service, I emailed I did everything I knew to reach him no success this went on for months! Now the court date is here I am not certain if he was showing up I became frantic finally he called said he was on medical leave and thought the person whom he left in charge was actually doing so!! Huh?? Okay I am a human so I accepted his apology and some lady showed to the court who seemed clueless. That case was adjourned also. Few more months of the same so I took matters into my on hands I contacted the other attorneys I negotiated the contracts they drew them up I sent one contract to my attorney he answers!!! I said how's the contract? He says great sign it! I said are you nuts!!! This contract is not in my best interest I was shocked he said sign it but then again he was out in a restaurant enjoying a meal at the time! So I sent in the revisions of the contract along with the revisions for the other attorney as it was a family court matter 5 different attorneys representing 5 different sides of the case! In order to close the case a few things needed to have happened so I scheduled and checked to ensure all things needed was checked off btw my attorney was paid everyone else had the luxury of a free attorney. The days leading into what I was determined to be the last court date my attorney REQUEST MORE MONEY!!!!huh? Explained that emails are billable and phone calls! But he did not answer my emails or phone calls for weeks at a time ! Last day of court HE FAILED TO SHOW STATED HE THOUGHT IT WAS CHANGED TO ANOTHER DAY! My options was to adjourn again or waive the attorney all of the present attorneys said " it's up to you but personally you are a far better attorney anyway". Mind you I am a homemaker with a love of law! So I waived the attorney reviewed, revised contracts on site and CLOSED MY OWN CASE!!!! I AM SHOCKEC AND HURT BY THE LACK OF CARE WORSE LEGAL EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE. But ended well BY THE GRACE OF GOD AND MY LOVE OFLAW!

I recently hired the Gilmer Law Firm to handle a child support case for me. He was very knowledgeable in dealing with this of type situation and had given me a very fair price compared to several other attorneys I spoke with. From our first discussion he made me feel very comfortable and confident about my case and he was quick to respond to all my calls and questions. I live in another state so he set it up for me to testify electronically from my state instead of having to incur the expense of a hotel and traveling into NY for court. Everything went the way he had explained and he got my case dismissed. I HIGHLY recommend Mr.George Gilmer and the Gilmer Law Firm

Mr.Gilmer was very honest and up front. My divorce proceedings went better then expected. We went in expecting the worse and came out with both parties reaching a out of court settlement which was extremely better than what we expected. Thanks again Mr. Gilmer.

My husband and I where falsely accused by disgruntled neighbor to cps .We weren't taken to court or anything but we wanted to make sure and have legal guidance.Starting with the initial appointment which was scheduled for 1pm I called at 12:30 to to see if we could push it up an hour because my husband had a last minute meeting or that I would keep my 1pm and go by myself.He didnt return calls or contact me UNTIL 2:30PM!I should have realized it then.Ok so we ended up meeting with him which im pretty sure it was a free consultation.He seemed Excellent. That night my husband said what if they retaliate*meaning Child services(we read alot on the Internet and where scared confused etc) Anyhow we called him and asked what if they come to take our kids?!He responded well "thats up to you". Right away that was a Red flag..I mean isn't security ,reassurance what he was supposed to provide?I went on and researched hours and came across One of if not THE BEST attorney in nyc .We called her and made an appt My God was she heaven sent!! We had a meeting with cps which was set for that friday *She prepared us guided us and gave us that peace of mind which is what we had paid "George Gilmer "for n he failldd to provide..speaking of..We had asked him if we should go to the meeting and he had said to "let him think"about it:/ after that he didn't return our calls until the morning of the meeting!! After that he went on vacation..when he returned I spoke to him and "he said he was tired" ??I guess from his vacation..ok ill fast forward..He ended up doing absolutely nothing. We ended up with the other attorney paying her as well *BUT She TRULLY EARNS HER $$ and is Honerable .. He on the other hand kept our $
