I am a personal injury and accident trial lawyer of more than 18 years, which has enabled to assist the injured recover millions against big, powerful corporations, like insurance companies while making our community safer. I believe that the driving force behind a successful case resolution is through thorough and early trial preparation, with the utilization of a team of experts in an effort to prove and demonstrate liability, injuries and damages, overcome defenses, address unsafe conditions, add value to the case and maximize recovery for the injured. I know from vast experience that companies do not just write checks to pay injured people out of the goodness of their heart. I understand the great lengths that businesses will go to in order to protect their bottom line, including lying and cover-ups.  My favorite lesson from the Bible remains David and Goliath. The way David unexpectedly and unconventionally rose up to protect his community, inspires me to do the same. While attending Thomas Goode Jones Law School, I worked as a law clerk and legal intern and graduated with honors in the top percentile of my class. I then scored in the top percentile in the nation on the Multi-State Bar Exam.

They were always so kind & honest about everything every step of the way. They made it all so easy for me to understand while allowing me to make the final decisions. I was so blessed when I found this firm. I have not only came out on top but I am coming out with a new found friend ship. This amazing team of people actually care for you & your well being.

She assured me from the beginning that it would all be ok & she didn’t let me down. I will recommend this Law Firm over & over again!!

Responsive & Professional
Recently I spent some time with Aaron Gartlan regarding a personal legal matter which arose from a vehicle accident involving my wife. My time with Mr. Gartlan was without a doubt one of the very best legal advice experiences that I have ever encountered. Not only was Mr. Gartlan quick to respond, but he was very friendly, professional, and he provided my wife and I with the necessary information that we needed to proceed with our claim. Do yourself a favor, if you need personal injury legal representation, reach out to Gartlan Injury Law Firm! You will not be disappointed! Thank you all for the invaluable information and professional interaction.

Amazing, patient, understanding
I can’t thank The Garlin Injury Law team enough for everything they’ve done for my family and I. We were in the worse car accident and having to involve a lawyer was the scariest thing the least to say because we did not have any idea what was going to be thrown at us but with their support, patience and kindness I can honestly saw it was the best decision we’ve ever made. I made such an amazing friend from this team and her name is Mrs.Candice! I never knew I needed a friend like her till we met!!!

Took the weight off our shoulders!
Working with the Gartlan Injury Law team took the weight off our shoulders from the first phone call. Having never navigated a personal injury before, we were at a loss of how to even begin the process after my husband's accident. Every time the subject of the accident came up, immediate stress and strain on both of us followed. When Aaron & Candice stepped in to help, we felt like we could take a backseat and allow them to move the process forward for us. They were available for any question we had, responded quickly, and helped us feel seen and taken care of. There is no way we would have made it through this process without them on our team. We're thankful!

Excellent knowledge and consideration
They were very polite about helping eveb though I did not require their services. They provide full detailed coverage involving possible scenarios and outcomes. Candice Hemmnes did a great job with following up, checking for the next available conference and provided a sense of care and concern pertaining to my injuries. She is a awesome woman and I highly recommend them to anyone in need of a personal attorney for their case.

Processional and friendly.
I was in a car accident and was injured, luckily not severely, despite the severity of the accident. They’ve communicated well the entire time. Was very forthcoming on what to expect. Very responsive to questions and concerns. Very professional, empathetic and kind. Candice has been an amazing person through this.
