Terrific Representation
I could not have had a better experience with the Law Offices of Gerald L. Kane. Gerry is a top-notch attorney who took all of the pressure off of me in putting together my will and trust, completely handling every detail in a totally responsible and professional manner. Also, his staff is A-plus, across the board. I could not be happier with the work Gerry has done for me and have already been recommending him to all of my colleagues. Randy
