DO NOT LET YOURSELF BE CHEATED AND BE TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF... FIGHT BACK WITH AN EXPERIENCED AND AGGRESSIVE ATTORNEY!!!

I limit my practice to personal injury cases and consumer law based cases such as lemon law, breach of warranty, fraud, sales fraud & misrepresentation, products liability or improper debt collection/harassement, where I protect the rights of private individuals and small business against powerful corporations. I believe in practicing in a few niche areas that are all related to one another instead of being a jack of all trades and master of none. I operate a small firm by choice and only agree to represent a limited number of clients so that I can effectively pursue my cases and remain personally involved in each case. I believe that this approach produces a better outcome for my clients as opposed to the very large law firms who routinely advertise on television and have dozens of support staff working for each attorney. Those attorneys simply do not have the time to personally handle their many cases and are forced to rely on their support staff for directing the outcome of the case. At my firm, my clients speak with me and perhaps one assistant dedicated to their case and receive the individual attention that only an attorney can provide.

 

I am a service connected disabled veteran. My background in the medical field is useful to me in communicating with medical professionals while I purse my injury cases. The military has taught me to be resourceful, disciplined and tenacious and what it means to serve others. I enjoy fighting for the rights of others that are not equipped to pursue large corporations that rely on bully tactics. I am also an avid biker, a boater and scuba diver and possess mechanical experience. I use this broad background and experience to my clients' advantange.

Excellent Lawyer that gets the job done!
Could not have gotten a better lawyer or experience than Atty. Bolliger. Having experienced a terrible situation with an unethical used car dealership that stole my deposit Atty. Bolliger took on my case and assured me I would be victorious and worked generously with me knowing I just lost thousands of dollars and had no vehicle. He handled everything in a most professional, timely and efficient manner and got my money back! I couldn't thank him enough and I couldn't recommend him enough. In a world of crooks and unethical people/businesses he is a Diamond! Thank you Atty. Bolliger!

Best Lawyer for Defective Vehicles!
I never had an opportunity to show my gratitute and appreciation here in this website. Mr. Bolliger took my case in 2017 against BMW not wanting to honor the warranty and finding every little excuse to avoid having to replace my engine. They were asking me to pay over $30,000 to replace the engine. We contacted Mr. Bolliger and WOW!! the experience from start to finish was amazing!!! He definitely exceeded our expectations and we will always be grateful for his service and professionalism. He fought for us in mediation until we won! Thank you Mr. Bolliger!!

A humble experience with Mr. Ballinger
To make a long story short a family member was in an accident opposite attorneys did everything to throw us under the bus. S Ballinger did what he does best law. I have never in my life of dealing with attorneys and Co Council attorneys. Mr. Bullinger always made my family feel like a part of his, And yes he Won the case. But after four years I found out he was not about money it’s about principle of law and right. There’s no amount of money that can make you feel as good as we felt knowing he was there. I think him, We think him from the bottom of our hearts. We were blessed to have Aldo as our attorney the Bowman’s

Satisfied Fort Myers Client
Great services, professional, swift, straight forward, and painless. Thank you John and Ricardo!!! I do not live in the Tampa Bay area, I live in Fort Myers and could not find a Lemon Law lawyer locally. I'm glad I searched outward to a larger city and found Bolliger Law Group. This is their forte. The reviews on AVVO.com were what sold me on using them, they more than met my expectations. I didn't have to drive to Tampa, all communication was handled promptly via email and phone. My claim was simple and straight forward, transmission issues with my 2016 Jeep Charokee under 2 years old. I had all the initial documentation to them by late June, we had a little bit of a negotiation battle with the manufacturer and received an acceptable settlement offer by late August, I expect a check in September. Very informative, they follow up, they get things done. They tell you upfront what the process will most likely be like. They tell you the potential timelines for each action that may be taken. They tell you what is expected of you. They give you a list of documentation that you need and how to obtain any missing pieces. They give you your options, and you decide how you want to proceed. A side note: Documentation is absolutely key, make sure everything is noted on the service tickets, and don't hold off on going to the dealership and get your continued issues documented, read the notes on the service tickets that day, take photos of error codes on the dash, take video of your issues if possible, take a screenshot of mileage when you drop the vehicle off for service and when you pick it up to verify how many miles they test drove it. Keep your expectations reasonable, while this is personal to you and emotional at the end of the day this is business for everyone else. While we all feel like we should not only get a full replacement vehicle with all the bells and whistles for our frustration; that is not going to happen. Know what you feel comfortable with settling for and let them know, and at the end of the day remember this process is to help you MOVE ON from your current situation.

Warrenty Issue, Magnuson Moss
Dealt with John Gerding, one of the Clerks with the practice. Communication was good and at the end of the day the case was settled with a new engine being put in the car. Was not a quick process but I guess these things have a life of their own. They helped in a bad situation and got most of what we were asking for. Would absolutely recommend them and John.

Assistance dealing with big car company
The law firm was very clear about the process from start to finish. I was not sure if I would get positive results considering what I had already been thru, but they renewed my faith for justice against the big car companies.

Knocked it out of the park!
I was in bad shape. I was getting royally screwed with a warranty issue with manufacturer and dealership. I was referred to Mr. Bolliger. He was nothing short of spectacular. He delivered. He educated me. He made the experience stress free. Most importantly, he won! I feel vindicated. I am out of the mess that the dealer and manufacturer put me in and I cannot have done it with out Mr. Bolliger. I highly highly recommend he and his firm of also talented people. Thank you guys! Seriously!! Well done!

Great Firm
I purchased a 2012 Ford Focus used and Attorney Bolliger was able to help me receive compensation for the ongoing issues with ford focuses transmission. The attorney and paralegals always got back with me in a timely matter to answer my questions, and Attorney Bolliger himself contact me regarding any concerns that I had. Highly Recommend!

Highly recommend
I called Bolliger Law Group for a free consultation. The young lady I spoke to was very nice and she listened to me. She asked me questions and then sent me an email. Once I received the email I called to confirm they received my documents. Another young lady answered and she set me up with a phone conference with the Attorney. When I spoke to the Attorney I felt very comfortable and he explained everything so well to me I had no doubt. I knew I wanted to hire him. He is very sweet and knowledgeable and his staff that I spoke to when I first called were great to me as well.

Highly Reccomended Law Group
I worked with Bolliger Law Group for a problem with my lemon law case. After going through BBB, Bolliger Law Group gave me options after this. John Gerding was extremely knowledgeable, professional, and helpful throughtout the entire process. They made the experience very pleasent and it was completed in around 3 months.

Awesome Attorney & great service!
I hired Aldo Bolliger for breach of contract on a leased lemon automobile. I received prompt and fair service. The entire team were so friendly and professional. I would like to thank John Gering for getting me all setup and ready with my case, he is going to be a great attorney. I especially would like to thank Aldo for taking my case, he is a no nonsense but fair and just lawyer. I recommend anyone who need legal services to hire the Bolliger Law Group.

SIMPLY THE BEST!!!
I recently hired Bolliger Law Group for a mechanical problem with my brand new Nissan Maxima Platinum. I took it to the dealership to have fixed over 6 times. The problem persisted. I did not know I had options until I called Bolliger Law Group. What a relief !!! I initially spoke to John Gerding, who was VERY knowledgeable, and helpful with details about the process to have my car repurchased by the manufacturer. The whole experience was very professional and was completed in around 2-3 months. (based upon my case - others may vary). I got the new car loan paid off, and a substantial portion of my down payment back! I just bought another new vehicle few days before turning in my Maxima to the dealership. Very pleased! :-). These folks at the law office are very nice, professional and knowledgeable!

Lemon Law Specialist
Whether you have a question or a genuine problem - Mr. Bolliger has a wealth of information concerning state lemon laws. Additionally, he is very well versed on the Federal Law that covers lemon vehicles. In some case, the Federal route offers more protection and resolutions than state laws.

I email Mr.Bolliger and he quickly replied that he didn't handle such my case . But he did refer me to a great Attorney that did. Definitely one I'd keep in mind in future if needed.
