Very Satisfied Client
Jerry Gaggini was very patient and professional in helping me to navigate the legal system and guiding me through the probate process. I had never done this before and most likely won’t need to do it again. Without Jerry’s assistance, the entire process would have been very intimidating especially during a time when I was so vulnerable. I would recommend Jerry in a heartbeat!

This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.
| Consulted Attorney
I felt so much better after consulting with Mr. Gaggini. His knowledge concerning my specific legal matter was exceptional. During our consultation, Attorney Gaggini was direct, specific and thorough. His tone and manner was kind, thoughtful, and very detailed and specific for my individual questions. During our consultation, he gave me the opportunity to ask many questions about my case. After our initial discussions, he continued his consultation with me by continuing communications with me thoroughly until I was left satisfied with the legal matter. I greatly appreciated his follow-up consultation because without him, I could not have known where to turn. I would recommend this service to anyone seeking legal services.

Amazing lawyer & negotiator!
I hired Mr. Gaggini in 2017 to help with over 13 different claims against me, demanding over $800,000 in damages. I did nothing wrong but wasn't sure how to respond, being both overwhelmed and frightened. So I hired Mr. Gaggini & he immediately relieved me of the anxiety of facing these claimants. He also wound up negotiating a settlement that was a FRACTION of the asking cost. (Less than $4,000)!! I cannot recommend him enough. My financial future would be in ashes if it weren't for his expert knowledge of the law, attention to detail, and dedication to serving his clients. You will not regret reaching out to him for any and all Civil Law needs.

Exceptional Legal Advice
I had the pleasure of working with Jerry over the last year on a legal matter in Mississippi. Not only was he knowledgeable on the law, he was also skillful in our negotiations with the other parties involved. In the end, Jerry saved our company thousands of dollars. I would HIGHLY recommend Jerry and his firm!

Very Professional, Very Courteous
I was wrongfully accused in a lawsuit along with the business. Jerry turned out to be very comforting explaining different strategies and my rights. The business side of the case was dismissed on his very first hearing. I have to commend Jerry on his professionalism, thoroughness and his dedication towards my business and to me personally. I could not have found a better lawyer for myself.
