Gerald I. H. Street Review
Integrity, talent, experience and compassion are the qualities that define Gerald Street. If you want an honest appraisal of your situation or condition, he is the attorney to call. He is well known and respected throughout the industry and his reputation is well earned. I have retained his services on several occasions involving wills, trusts, real estate and elder care among other issues. I have been impressed with the results...every time. Look as hard as you want and you will not find better representation anywhere in the entire State.

Lorrie and Gerald have been terrific. They are patient, detail-oriented and knowledgeable the process. In addition, they are sympathetic to the stress that families are put under. I don’t know if my family could have gone through the process without them.

The prefect combination of experience and compassion
We were so lucky to find Mr. Street - he was referred to us by our accountant and he and his staff have proven to be a God send. He helped me and my family navigate through a very difficult time emotionally and financially - the failing health and placement of 1 parent into long term care while preserving the financial stability for the other to remain in their home of 50 plus years. No matter how many questions we had, he and his staff were always quick to return a phone call, investigate an issue or re-explain an answer. As our situation changed, he and Lorrie (his assistant) were with us every step of the way. We are always made to feel that we are the most important clients they have - never rushed or left waiting for answers. Mr. Street and Lorrie have made an incredibly difficult, and confusing time, much easier. I can't recommend - or thank - them enough.
