1st Class from start to finish.
I could not recommend this firm and this group of people any higher. Everyone we had contact with from the Secretary, the paralegals to Jeremy the lawyer who handled our case were the friendliest most accommodating group we have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. Our case was a very complicated case involving automotive parts and repair. Jeremy took the time to learn every step of how the repair was done to how all the parts actually work so that he could understand exactly what was going on. He even accommodated our tough schedule with meetings after work to go over the smallest of details. When it was time for court he knew as much as the expert witness. The communication back and forth was awesome and the attention to every little detail for our preparation from Jeremy almost made court enjoyable. It definitely made the experience a lot easier to endure as there was no hidden surprises that we were not prepared for. If you are looking for a law firm with exceptional people that actually care for their clients then Gertler Law Firm is the right choice.

The Gertler Law Firm is committee to excellence!
My wife and I said that New Orleans is definitely a city that we wanted to visit. As fate would have it, her job brought her to New Orleans on a weeklong business trip and I was her plus one. I was having a really great time until I was involved in an incident where I was hit by a car while crossing at an intersection in the French Quarters. We had only been in the city for 3 days during a 7 days stay, yet, I was confined to resting in my hotel room for the remainder of the trip. I saw that there were a lot of television commercials for accident attorneys; however, when I called them to get a consultation, no one would take my case because I was from another state. That is until I contacted The Gertler Law Firm. Although I was unable to speak to anyone until the day we were flying out, they accommodated my wife and I by getting us into their office and made us feel valued and appreciated from the very first handshake. I felt their concern and earnestness was genuine and it assured us that we would be taken care of. When we left, I felt that recovering from my injuries was all that I had to worry about, The Gertler Law Firm would handle the rest. Throughout the weeks and months to follow, they kept me informed and updated on the status and progress of the matter and they were prompt and diligent when it came to addressing my medical needs and billing. Again, during this ordeal, getting better was my only burden to bare. In the end, I did get better and was made whole due to the dedicated efforts of the team at The Gertler Law Firm. Even though I didn’t get to enjoy “The Big Easy” the way I would have liked to, I will definitely be returning for the food, the sights, the music and to personally thank the very capable people of The Gertler Law Firm!
