Outstanding services!
During my time working with Mr. McGrath, the service I received was phenomenal. I wouldn't trust anyone else with my cases after working with McGrath and his team. His firm is honest, attentive and hardworking and I'm so grateful for his assistance.

Strong Advocate
I retained Mr. McGrath to represent me when I was involved in a car accident this past year. Mr. McGrath took the time to explain the entire claims process to me in laymen's terms. I felt like he genuinely cared about the impact the accident had on our family. I was very pleased with the professional and compassionate way my case was handled. The settlement on my case exceeded my expectations and I know it was because Mr. McGrath was a strong advocate for me. I would highly recommend him.

Great Help with Property Damage and Injury Claim
A great experience from start to finish for my auto accident case. I had a tough time getting the insurance carrier to pay for all of the damage to my car. After getting the run around from my adjuster, I called McGrath Gibson for help. The staff was very friendly and helpful, they took care of all the problems getting my car fixed. Attorney Michael McGrath helped me find a doctor that was close to my job so I could get therapy for my injuries without missing too much time from work. I was very pleased with the settlement of my case and have recommended several friends in Jacksonville to this law firm.

Thank you so much for the review Robert!

Very Professional and Knowlegable
Mr. McGrath represented me in a slip and fall case against a department store and some store suppliers. Despite being provided limited information from the store at the time of my accident, Mr. McGrath was able to take the information I had and file my case against 3 Defendants. We were able to settle my case prior to trial. I am very happy with my result.

When everyone else told me no.
My case was originally denied by the insurance carrier for the other driver and my first attorney dropped my case. Mr. McGrath met with me personally at my home and was able to quickly understand what I was going through. My claim settled less than a year later for the full policy amount. I can't thank him and his staff enough!

Poor quality, Poor communication, Do not recommend for family law
Staff has a high turnover rate, making things difficult to get done. They take on more cases than they can handle. DO NOT recommend for Family Law, attorney admittedly stated that's not where their money comes from. This attorney went MIA resulting in my divorce being filed without my knowledge, with glaring errors.
