4.0 stars 9 totalReview Gary Jackson
Posted by Reggie Jefferson
I started with another firm, I left them because I felt like I was on an assembly line. I start with Gary then his brother Derek, but they made me feel comfortable. Clients are made to feel like they are lying. I was and still feeling depressed. They answered all my questions. This system at times is against the patient, who wants to take drugs all the time instead of getting the care you need. Services are denied, so all a doctors can do is give you pain meds. Gary and Derek help me with this system, I wouldn't want to go through this system without Gary and Derek.

My experience with Jackson and Jackson was good. Gary was very thorough to explain everything to me that way I was able to understand all the lawyer talk. He kept me updated through the whole process, I had many questions along the way and he answered all my questions in a timely manner. If you are seeking a respectable worker compensation firm contact Jackson and Jackson.

Several years ago I got sick on the job in my workplace. It was a difficult situation for me because I knew that the problem had been caused by my employer not really taken care of the work environment. I ended up having surgery and have had respiratory problems ever since.
Initially I was hesitant to call a lawyer because I did not want problems with my employer. My co-workers encouraged me to contact a lawyer and I did contact another lawyer who said I did not have a case and treated me very dismissively.
After that negative experience I waited a few weeks and gave Gary's office a call and I was immediately impressed by the sympathy shown to me by his staff. His aide was very supportive and immediately got all the paperwork to me to sign and was empathetic with me during the process.
The rest of the process was also difficult for me because I am not in the legal profession and I'm not used to dealing with those kinds of things. Gary help me understand the situation and come to me when I felt worried. He also was very persistent during times when the other parties were not cooperating. There was even a moment when I believed that I was not going to get anything out of this situation.
Because of Gary's that occasion I did get a nice settlement and have been able to invest that money knowing that it will be there for me in the future if I need it.
I am very grateful to the law offices of Jackson and Jackson and would recommend them to anyone who has been injured on the job.

In the beginning Gary seemed to have my best interest in mind. That all changed after our initial meeting. I have had communication issues with him for the past 3 years. I almost fired him around year 2, but after getting upset at him and his staff, he finally returned my call and convinced me to stay with him. Now we are nearing a settlement, his secretary called me and told me of the initial offer, NOT HIM. Supposedly, he is "on vacation". Which according to another review from January he was "on vacation". I have been calling his office for over a month and sent him emails. Not professional in my opinion. It is very hard to go through an awful life change like this and to also have to deal with attorneys shortcomings at the same time.

I just hired Mr Jackson and he started what he said he would right away. Every question I had, he answered with no hesitation and no bull. I'm glad I switched lawyer's. I should have done it a long time ago.

I hired Gary to represent me in a workers comp case in which I was severely concussed. I didn't even know I was eligible for a settlement, I was looking for a lawyer because I'd had been out of work on workers comp for 3 months and figured it was time to see a pro to see what my options were in case I didn't get better. Gary explained the entire process to me and what was going to change and lo and behold the attitude of every one of my Doctors suddenly changed from trying to push me back to work to trying to make sure I was getting actually getting better.
As to some of the complaints here, Gary is a in a family operation and not a big law firm. We did most of our correspondence over e-mail and I know I annoyed him with questions but I'm guessing so does every client he has. And if he is in court he can't exactly answer his phone. When I had valid concerns and questions he answered them immediately...but yeah sometimes I'd ask a bunch of random what-if questions and I wouldn't hear back from him. Because he's a lawyer and he's got important things to do.
But when my workers comp insurance company intentionally tried to screw me he was on it. My disability checks were turned off and I was given 4 different reasons why...Gary got the checks turned back on and the missing amount added to my settlement.
At one point we were talking about a particular settlement amount that had been offered and I said I just wanted my company to treat me like they said they treated their employees. I said I was pissed and in my upcoming deposition I might not be able to contain my anger. He talked me down and said that just because the other side is being corrupt doesn't mean we have to be. We can win by being the better people and being right. My first thought was "actually I could use a little more teeth in my shark there Mr. Jackson" but he was not only right, he delivered. He called the insurance company on their actions and threatened to take them to EC court and that's when my checks came back and my settlement offer jumped another $12000.
The legal system takes time, lawyers are busy people and you are not their only client. Gary always managed to get back to me about the important stuff and came through on everything he said he would. I would definitely recommend him.

his office is very small and 1 and only staff is horrible!! You can never reach him, very unresponsive. I was the one fighting the insurance not him. My doctor was waiting for some papers for about 2 month and he never sent it so I fired his ass!

I found Gary Jackson after I fired 2 other attorneys that failed to handle my Workman's Comp case competently. Not only did Gary address my case quickly, with dedication and expertise, but I also received a surprisingly large settlement. I never thought that I would say this about an attorney...but Gary is a very real and compassionate person; that actually cares about his client's health and well being. That is a rare statement these days and I am so grateful that I went with my instincts and let Gary and his staff take my case. Gary continually communicated with me personally; was always pleasant to talk to and he never made me feel like a case number on some file. Thank you Gary, for all of your hard work and for never letting me down.
