Represented me in car accident case. Settled case out of court. Received a nice settlement. Had to take case before the Indiana appeals court. Had to do a lot of research in this case. Always treated me with respect and kindness.

Mr. Garau was personable, professional and efficient in handling our case. He promptly answered any questions we had. He took the time to thoroughly explain each step of the legal process. My wife and I highly recommend Mr. Garau and his law firm.

My original contacts with Jerry's Law Firm were with Deb Pennington, but Jerry took over my case upon her retirement. From our first contact until a few years later when the case was resolved I was continually amazed with the professional, personable manner in which Jerry handled my case. Also, his Legal Assistants and consultants were always courteous and extremely helpful whenever we interacted. As with many cases like mine, it's a long, arduous process that takes several years. Throughout this whole ordeal I was frequently contacted by Jerry or someone from his firm with updates on our case, and offered to answer any questions I might have. Regardless of how my case was resolved I would highly recommend Jerry and his firm!
