Mr. McFarlane handled my case with the utmost discretion and managed my expectations with regards to case timing and my eventual award. He was professional, empathetic and caring, but very aggressive towards the insurance company. Thanks Greg!

Top Notch Attorney
The McFarlane Firm, P.A. handled a legal matter for us earlier this year. Greg is the consummate professional, I was confident we were in capable hands because he always has his client's best interests at heart. Greg is knowledgeable, works assiduously to attain successful results, adheres to regulatory processes, is very detailed with relevant information and was ever responsive to our questions and concerns. I highly recommend the McFarlane Firm, you will not be disappointed.

Great Lawyer
Gregory handled a accident case for me wherein he got great results for me from the Insurance Co. who didn't want to offer anything. Following his directions I had a pleasing outcome.

Thank goodness for Mr. McFarlane
After my car accident around May of 2015, I had never considered calling an attorney. Hearing all of the radio advertisements and TV commercials I never took their services seriously. However, after this accident I was left with three herniated disks and decreased movement in my neck. A friend, who had used Gregory's services in the past, recommended that I contact him just to see what he had to say. I did, and was hesitant BUT open to the idea. Working with Gregory I found that he truly had my best interest in mind. I received the therapy and car repairs I needed with no out-of-pocket cost. In fact, after all was said and done I received a check from my insurance company to put in my pocket; something that I had no idea was available to me. There is so much stated in the fine print of our car insurance contracts that without an attorney we could never tap in to all of the resources, and to be frank money, that is available to us. I have and will continue recommending Gregory.

Knows what he is doing!
Professional and Caring - I hired Greg after my daughter had a catastrophic accident. Greg explained everything, resolved my case securing the policy limits and significantly reduced the medical expenses. I would definitely recommend him!

Highly Recommended
I highly recommend The McFarlane firm for their professionalism and their willingness to go above and beyond. Mr. Mcfarlane was attentive, thorough, and helpful throughout a very difficult time. He broke down the complicated litigation process making it extremely easy to understand. His paralegal, Claudia, was with me every step of the way and she responded quickly to every question I had. Big thanks to The McFarlane Firm for turning an unpleasant situation into a positive experience.
