I would use Gil Alba and his firm again. You can trust this law firm to be honest. His staff always returned my calls and the outcome of my case was favorable.

Gil Alba is so awesome. He is the perfect representation of what a good attorney should be. I am glad he chose to represent me as his client. Before coming to Mr. Alba, I went to someone else and…they told me…[there was] nothing they could do…and that I had no case. But I went to Mr. Alba…and he got something done.

I worked as a law clerk for Gil and found him to be an excellent attorney. He is very knowledgeable, personable, and thorough. Moreover, he is a great litigator, with a proven track record. I definitely would recommend him without hesitation.

Gil is the 'go to' guy on all personal injury matters. In Gainesville or Ocala, Gil would be my first call for motor vehicle accidents, slip and falls, or anything negligence related (especially wrongful death). I have seen him in action and he's who I'd hire. Go get 'em Gil!
