Gerald Singleton is a lawyer with intergrity and genuinely cares about his clients
We are not the type to sue. We felt we were blessed to be alive. The Singletons never pressured once. They patiently answered our questions and left us to decide on our own. Gerry and Joy Singleton were available by phone and email evenings, weekends, or whenever we had questions or just needed to talk. They gave us incredible support and were genuinely interested in our case. They made the process as painless as possible. The lawyers came to our home and spent as much time as we needed helping to document our case. Throughout the entire process, Gerry and Joy were personally involved with our case. We were thrilled with the amount of the settlement. If you want an honest hard working firm to represent you, we highly recommend Gerald Singleton!

So happy with the team support to my case
I am very happy with the level of service and support I received from the Singleton Law Firm. They were kind and patient with me as we progressed through the various stages of litigation. I felt informed every step of the way. They knew when to advise me to "hang in there" and when to advise me to "take the offer." Ultimately, they got me a settlement that makes me as whole as possible after an auto accident. My bills are paid and any future medical expenses will be covered. I am very glad that I called Singleton and got their help with my case.

16 months sure beats 10 years to life!
I was apprehended at the US/MEX border with over 20 kilos of cocaine. I was facing a federal minimum mandatory sentence of 10 years to life. Initially, I was denied bond. However, as soon as I contracted Jerry as my defense attorney, I was granted the ability to post bond. Fortunately, I was able to spend nearly two years with my family in a pre-trial status. During that time, Jerry worked on my defense, and accordingly was able to abridge my sentence to include RDAP, coupled with a reduction in sentence. After all was said and done, I only had to serve 16 months..Sure beats 10 years to life!! "If Jerry can't do it, it can't be done!!"
