Representation with knowledge and heart.
I had the pleasure of being represented by Ms. Gamino during a very unfortunate time. Ms. Gamino was very professional, well prepared and went above and beyond the norm to save my life. Did I tell you that she was an appointed attorney? The services rendered by Ms. Gamino were on par or above those rendered for a paying client. I am proud to have had her representing me. I would recommend her to anyone who is in need of an attorney. I owe her a great debt that can never be repaid for giving me my life back. A true advocate for the people, not just someone with a law degree. Ms. Gamino is the person I would recommend to anyone in need of legal assistance. She's smart, resourceful, and has an unwavering zeal for the law. No one could ask for better representation. She's a legal champion and she will go above and beyond to serve her clients. Lawyers all over this country have given the legal profession a black eye. Ms. Gamino has revived my faith in the profession and has shown that there are dedicated and professional individuals who will uphold the oath and their fiduciary responsibility to their clients.
