This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Great Naples Personal Injury Lawyer
He promptly handled my case and got me triple the amount of money offered with my previous Lawyer in Naples. I was amazed at the results. I was a little skeptical about hiring this Law firm since the previous Law firm handling my case was a large firm in Naples. Nonetheless, I did, and I can't say how happy I am that I made the change. Eric and Gerta are a fantastic team, and they will always have your best interest at heart. Do yourself a favor and hire these guys right away. My case was with the other law firm for almost two years before Eric and Gerta taking it over.
