La Quinta,CA was hit hard by Hurricane Odile when it came through On September 8, 2014. Wind driven rain to the tune of 3 inches an hour fell in our area. Along one side of my house rain poured into the house from all along the bottoms of the window sills. The next day the insurance co. was notified.The adjuster came out called various companies to tear out the walls and insulation below the window sills to dry out the inside of the walls.
It was now my job to find an experienced contractor to find out what was wrong and to complete the job.
Robert Gilliland's name was given to me to help find a proper contractor which indeed he did.
The insurance company was sure the reason for the storm damage to my home was builder related and refused to pay for any more than the closing of the walls and painting. In calling the contractor Mr Gilliland recommended, which incidentally had 35 years of experience, he found a different reason for the water entry.
Mr Gilliland handled all the personal phone calls and correspondence with the Insurance company.
The Insurance company dragged their feet for a long nine months, but Mr Gilliland persevered until the Insurance company paid the claim

I have had an opportunity to work with Rob on two different HOA boards where I was a member. Both cases were very complicated and time consuming. In my opinion Rob was the right attorney at the right time to handle both of these cases. After a very long legal battle Rob was successful on winning these cases for the HOA.
One of the many things that I admire about Rob is his ability to take a very complicated case and break I down so HOA board members, homeowners and juries can easily understand what is occurring in the case. Rob has excellent people skills and a great knowledge of the law and how it applies in “real world” situations. He is very hard working and he is not intimidated by other attorneys. He is not afraid of a fight. Rob is the guy who you want “watching your back” in a legal situation”.
It has been my experience working with Rob that he always has his client’s best interest in mind. I have complete confidence is Rob’s knowledge, experience, and expertise. If I was being sued personally I would not hesitate in using Rob and his law firm.
I have had lots of experience in my law enforcement career interacting with all sorts of attorney. Both in the criminal and civil field. Rob is one of the best. I recommend he with no reservations.

Mr. Gilliland is an incredibly good attorney who cares about his clients. He obtained an outstanding monetary result for my wife and I, and he kept us informed throughout our case. We observed him in depositions and in court, and he commands a strong presence. We were very glad he was our attorney and not the other side's attorney. He is a winner. Thank you Mr. Gilliland!
