Exceeded Expectations
My malpractice case was complicated and against a major highly rated hospital. When meeting with Mr. Gilreath I was treated with respect and given the time to review my concerns, discuss my care and negative outcomes. He researched and found experts in the field of my injury who reviewed my case and ordered further testing to prove my case. Mr. Gilreath is not only a great attorney but a compassionate person. I would recommend his services to anyone!

| Hired Attorney
I had a malpractice case against a large specialty practice and consulted with Mr. Gilreath. He was willing to review and take my case. He was very honest and up front about where we stood at all times. Mr. Gilreath and his staff worked diligently on my behalf throughout the process. I would highly recommend Mr. Gilreath to anyone and would certainly hire him again.

wrongful death case
I hired Mr. Gilreath to handle a wrongful death case against a drunk driver and the bar serving the driver alcohol. I found him and his staff to be thorough and professional throughout the case. I recommend him without reservation. His investigation was the key to resolution of the case.
