Law firm review
Gary is a superb lawyer providing excellent knowledge of subrogation laws in multiple states. We have used him and his firm exclusively for subrogation claims and find them to be extremely responsive and informative.

Top notch attorney
I've used Gary Wickert's services for almost 8-years, and for cases in almost every State. Gary is very knowledgeable and very responsive. He always gives a straight answer, and if he doesn't know the answer (which is rare) he'll find it quickly. He is also very easy to deal with, and has been very accomodating. I highly recommend him.

Excellent Resource for the subrogation professional
I highly depend on Mr. Wickert's "Workers Compensation Subrogation in All 50 States"....also known here in the office as my "Bible". His knowledge in the area of WC subrogation is unparalleled & he always personally responds to any email questions I might submit. I trust his knowledge and expertise in all areas of subrogation .

Highly Recommended Law Firm for Subrogation Practices
I work with two attorneys within this firm on a weekly and sometimes a daily basis. I work with others within this firm on a less frequent basis, but have always received top notch professionalism from every person I have encountered. I highly recommend this firm for the matter of subrogation law.
