No Worries
This is my second successful case with this firm and when I tell you, I didn't have to worry about anything, Mr. Montesi took care of everything. The accident was bad enough but to have to worry about how i would be compensated for my injuries and pain & suffering was too much to bear. He checked on me & made sure i was ok & to give updates on the progression of my case. If I ever had questions about my case he never hesitated to answer my questions or to call me back in a timely manner if he wasn't available at the time of my call. Everyone from the receptionist on down is AWESOME!!!

When Life happens
When life happens it doesn't matter who you are. Being a mother, wife, and entrepreneur, I had no idea going inside of a store to purchase my 10yr old a muffin for breakfast would leave me with knee pain for months. A slip and fall I will never forget. I'm glad that I chose to call GKBM to help me through it all. I didn't know how the process really worked at first but I'm all about details. That's just what I received while working with Attorney Brad Spicer, Tammy, Michelle, and the entire team. I didn't have to worry about knowing what was happening with my case because these people kept me well informed. I received calls that I would miss daily (smiling), but they were patient with me. I received detailed letters of how my case was being handled. When I didn't know how hard to fight on my case, I had no worries in knowing that I could trust Attorney Spicer to handle it. I would recommend this law firm to anyone who needs the best attorneys to fight their cases. I didn't have to go to court although my attorney said it would be good to. I have a lot of family obligations so I'm happy we did settle. Now I can rest assure knowing that I made the right decision in choosing GKBM to fight on my case. THEY ARE TRULY THE BEST!

Appreciative
GKB&M was not my first choice. I chose a firm that claimed to be heavy hitters. They made me feel like I had to chase them. I felt unimportant. My second call was to GKB&M. My call was answered by a live pleasant voice. And the case went smoothly from there. James Stephens handled my case and kept me informed. He also answered my questions I truly believe to the best of his ability and with my best interest at heart. I am glad I had to make a second call, it was the best decision!!

Pleased customer
A lady ran a stop sign and hit the front passenger side of my vehicle. Mr.Piccirilli got me a decent amount for my older vehicle that was still in great shape and low mileage. I was very pleased with that. Then I had some neck and back issues-I went to the orthopedic doctor myself who ordered some therapy. Mr. Piccirilli set me up with a therapy group who took good care of me and even worked out the payments until I got my settlement. i was very pleased with how fast they handled my case and kept me informed the entire time.

disability claims
I had 38 years of paying ssa taxes & 20+ years of medical records I want to work but I had a heart attack & have bone spurs on my shoulder & hips. they passed my case onto a third party Muse disability. the paralegal almost testified for the SSA at my hearing. now I am 57 high school educated good with tech & unemployed.
Response from Michael Montesi May 8, 2018
Timothy, Thank you for your input. We wish that your medical records had been more supportive of your claim for disability. Your case was properly presented by a fully Accredited Disability Representative (ADR) with EDPNA certification who has represented Social Security clients at more than 1,600 hearings, many if which, including your case, were on behalf of GKBM clients. We hope that that you will consider reapplying at such time that your doctor is willing to provide medical opinion evidence limiting your work related activities. We wish you the best.
