Great result with my Defense Base Act lawyer for injuries in Afghanistan
I had no idea what to expect regarding my Defense Base Act case. I had low expectations of what I would be able to accomplish with a lawyer rather than doing it on my own. After speaking with Rebecca the first time, I was very happy with the advice I was given and happy with the presumed outcome. I was walked through the case step by step continuously throughout the entire process. The final outcome was by far more than I expected. And I would wholeheartedly recommend Rebecca and the whole firm of Gillis, Mermell and Pacheco to anyone who has any questions regarding their rights pertaining to injuries overseas.

Simply PERFECT!
I'm former logcap IV employee from Kosovo, I've got injured and been mistreated at my workplace. Ms. Stillman accepted representing me and achived fair enough compensation to my losses eventhough I've been more than far away!

I live in Wales and I got the best lawyer for my Defense Base Act case for injuries in Aghanitstan
From the very outset, Rebecca was honest, constantly in touch, kept me updated on every last detail, from emails to phone calls. I felt that I was her only client. Nothing was too much trouble. She always answered my questions promptly and honestly. I can honestly say hand on my heart that I feel Rebecca did an absolute superb job for me and my family and I can confidently recommend her and the firm of Gillis, Mermell & Pacheco to any colleague injured in Afghanistan or Iraq who needs a great Defense Base Act lawyer.

Thank you Rebecca for handling my Defense Base Act case
My experience with Rebecca was phenomenal. She was very professional and everything that she advised was up to par and I could not ask more from a lawyer. Best advise ever. She handled my Defense Base Act case for injuries in Afghanistan. I recommend her to others injured in Afghanistan or anywhere overseas.

Another satisfied client for a great Defense Base Act lawyer
Rebecca was great. Every time I had a question, she was quick to answer me. Any problems in my Defense Base Act case she handled on the spot. Over the four years that she represented me, she never discouraged me and always told me the truth. I was able to get a much larger compensation settlement than I expected. That way I can re-train because I cannot do my previous job. She was overall great person to work with. I would recommend her 100% to anyone injured while working overseas.

Great DBA lawyer for injuries overseas

Awesome Longshore attorney for injuries at the Port
Ms. Stillman was an awesome attorney. She helped me with my Longshore claim for injuries that happened at Port of Miami. She was there for us at each step of the way, answered my questions and took great care of me. We are very, very, very happy with the end result. She did an outstanding job for me and I am recommending her to my friends and co workers at the Port of Miami.

For Defense Base Act Lawyers on a scale of 1 to 5, I give this firm a 10
Amazing group of people. They really care about their clients. Always available to answer questions I had via phone or email. Would recommend the firm of Gillis, Mermell & Pacheco to anybody. I don’t know anything about lawyer stuff. They handled everything for my Defense Base Act case and did a great job.

Injured in Kuwait and got a great DBA lawyer
The professionalism at this firm was second to none, My Defense Base Act case was explained to me in great detail and I was kept informed all throughout my case. The settlement I received met all of my expectations. I like the way you guys flew out to my home in Minnesota to handle my mediation. It was nice to meet Ms. Stillman face to face. It made me feel important and that my case was very special and important. I really appreciate that when my court date got moved, another team member of the firm Gillis, Mermell & Pacheco called me to tell me what was going on. I felt like I had a whole team working for me, not just one lawyer.

This firm was over the top for my Defense Base Act case. They get my highest recommendation to all workers injured overseas!
Ms. Stillman was very professional. She answered my calls within an hour most of the times. This was my very first experience with an attorney and it was overall just great. Ms. Stillman and the law firm of Gillis, Mermell & Pacheco handled my Defense Base Act case for my injuries overseas. If it wasn’t for the work of this firm, things would have gone very differently and much worse for me. They handled my case professionally and very well and I am very happy with my result.

THE GREATEST ATTORNEY!!!!!!!!!!!!
What can I say about Attorney Stillman, she is absolutely brilliant!!! At times I would get down because I thought that things weren’t looking great with my case but Attorney Stillman was always so cool and calm which always made me feel reassured. The way she said the case would play out is exactly how it happened. I am so happy with the results and the service that I received from Attorney Stillman, if you are thinking about getting an attorney for your defense base act case please do not make the mistake and not hire Attorney Stillman. She is the absolute best!!!!!!!

Great Defense Base Act lawyer turned my case around and helped me win...I am very grateful
Ms. Stillman was very attentive taking care of the details and handling everything on time with regard to my Defense Base Act DBA case. The advices she gave me were perfect. I wish I had known her before I contacted other lawyers who affected my case in a negative way. I would recommend her and the firm of Gillis, Mermell & Pacheco to anybody who got injured overseas and got treated badly by the employer and insurance company.

Gillis, Mermell & Pacheco is the firm to go to for injuries sustained in Afghanistan
I hired the firm of Gillis, Mermell & Pacheco to handle my Defense Base Act case for injuries I sustained while working in Afghanistan. Ms. Stillman handled my case. She was always around no matter morning evening or day and always replied before close of business. Very knowledgeable and professional. And never hesitated to answer a question. She knew the answers and was confident in giving them. I would recommend her to overseas workers just as I was sent to her from another client of the firm of Gillis, Mermell & Pacheco. She did a great job for me and I will pay it forward by sending more cases to the firm for anyone that needs a great Defense Base Act lawyer.

Caring Defense Base Act lawyer helped me for my injuries in Afghanistan
Ms. Peake listened to my original issues on my Defense Base Act case. When she read it back to me, I was amazed at the detail to which she took an interest in me and my case. She was consistent all the way through. If she said she was going to call, she always did. She prepared me for each scenario with the good and the bad. I appreciated being prepared for every aspect of the case. My result exceeded my expectation well beyond what I expected. When I refer her to other clients, it is only because she has proven to me her competence in dealing with these difficult and complicated cases called Defense Base Act cases, helping injured contractors for overseas injuries in Iraq and Afghanistan.

High marks for my Defense Base Act lawyer
Rebecca did more in the six months that she had my case than my previeous lawyer did in six years. I was amazed at how she took over my case and her diligence in getting the job done. She was very quick in responding to emails and phone calls and I am completely happy with my result and I wish I had contacted her sooner. I highly recommend using Rebecca and the law firm of Gillis, Mermell & Pacheco for any injuries sustained in Afghanistan involving Defense Base Act cases. You will not be sorry that you contacted them.

Defense Base Act attorney that helped me receive a settlement
The insurance company kept trying to screw me over and I hired a DBA attorney and right away I didn't feel good about him. I searched online for the best DBA attorneys and I kept reading great things about the firm of Gillis, Mermell & Pacheco. I talked to them and knew they had been doing this awhile and I felt good about them. The insurance company fought me on everything and I would call upset and Rebecca was there for me and would walk me through what she was doing and calm me down. In the end Rebecca flew to Louisiana and we met with Insurance companies lawyers and were able to settle for a good amount. If you are hurt and need a DBA attorney Rebecca and the firm of Gillis, Mermell & Pacheco will fight for you.

Contact my Florida Defense Base Act lawyer if you are injured overseas
Well experienced and well knowledged. Very good attorney. Ms. Peake and the firm of Gillis, Mermell & Pacheco handled my Defense Base Act case. I was injured in Afghanistan while doing security work. Ms. Peake helped me settle my case for the most benefits from opposing counsel. I am very happy with the way it went and the result I got.

Triumphant result in my Defense Base Act case!
In meeting Ms. Rebecca Peake we were engaged in my case from the very beginning. She took the time to inform me of my options, give recommendations, and left the choices up to me, her client. In the end, when we were faced with mediation, she came through on top. There was no backing down or giving up when it comes to the defense of her client. When strength is needed, when the pressure is on, she is as tough as they come. On a personal note, I love the strength that she exudes. That is probably why she was a Lacrosse goalie. For this, me and my family are grateful that this law firm of Gillis, Mermell & Pacheco was a class act in Defense Base Act cases.
