Losing a loved one is hard enough and then finding out you have to deal with a wrongful death is equally hard, that's why I sought out Luis.
Let me start off by saying Luis Gazda is far from professional. He violated tons of rules. For example conflict of interest as he signed my sister and myself when I told him we both have different agendas. Then broke confidentiality talking to a whole bunch people that he shouldn't be talking to about my case. I also called in at least a couple times a week but always got the run around. All I wanted was to know was what was going on with my case and it would be months until I finally got a hold of Gazda.
As of April 2016 I wanted to go a different route in my case and ended up speaking with his assistant/ secretary named Marla. She was extremely rude and screamed at me because she didn't agree with what I was saying. I got a letter a few days later saying they dropped me.
I was fine with them dropping me but the problem I was having is that when the insurance company finally said they were ready, I was informed Luis Gazda put a lien on my case. Yes he was the one that dropped me and in his contract it states that I only have to pay him of I signed an agreement with the settlement and he dropped me before all of that.
I get a bill for $20k from Luis. He literally is charging me for Manila folders, paper clip, binders sheets, photo copies and basic supplies and I consulted this with a different attorney and they said they never heard of such requests. I'm just warning anybody going through them please be careful!

Here is my story with gazda. I hired him after my father was killed by a drunk driver. Gazda told me he would help me close his estate and gain some belongings for sentimental value. What happened was he provided me an administrative document saying I am in control of the estate. Which has the wrong date of death and wouldn't be able to be used. When I asked if I could get a new one with the correct date he said NO. When I asked why he said because he doesn't have time. I would try calling him and would leave many messages and I still have yet to get a call from him. I released him as my attorney he asked "are you hiring anyone else?" And I told him at the moment I am not. He then put a lien of over $20k on the car insurance claim money because if I didn't have another lawyer to say I fired him then he could manipulate the system to get money. I was supposed to receive from the insurance money from the crash that KILLED my father. On the lien he says he should be paid that for paper clips, folders, post it notes, and copies. $20k of money used for a wrongful death. I originally was going to be using the money to pay my fathers funeral. However, since gazda has placed the claim now, I cannot pay my dad's funeral. He never knew my father, never met my father, and apparently he is a father? This man has corrupted the system to create his own justice. I am stating my story so others that have gone through a tragedy don't have to. I looked to gazda for help because I have never been through this sort of ideal in my entire life. Now I know DO NOT trust attorneys. I also advise to check the Nevada state board website. This will show that an attorney at the gazda firm had his license revoked for unlawful activity. So please beware.

What an awful representation of a attorney office. You always hear that attorneys are scam artists and just want money. It's definitely THIS office. All gazda cares about is money. Once I suspected suspicious activity when talking to gazda I searched the business on the Nevada board for attorneys. And wow, you can see they had an attorney at this office who has had his license revoked for unlawful activity!!! That's when I decided that this office is a no go. One because gazda never EVER will speak to you nor will acknowledge you even exist after you sign on with him. His assistants are rude and very disorganized. Also beware of your privacy here. I have came to this on multiple occasions and have seen other people's case files sprawled all over the assistants front desk. I read them because, why not they didn't even say hello when I walked in the door and seemed preoccupied with other things then to take the 5 seconds to actually greet me. Gazda is a greedy scamful attorney. Karma will come his way and hopefully god will be able to forgive him for treating people so horribly. You will regret coming here.
