Champion of a cause.
Gary is patient, intelligent and ethical. His work is thorough, and he explains everything that will happen in the case. He is reachable, and responds quickly to contacts to him.

Unprofessional
Gar's people reached out to me twice asking for the same information. When I pointed that out, and said it made them look like scammers, he instantly turned around and terminated our relationship. I found him to be very unprofessional. Zero chance I'd ever recommend.
