Proficient, Efficient, and Compassionate
Michael was referred to us by someone extremely trustworthy. It was truly a relief when he took on our case. He was extremely easy to communicate with, and he worked tirelessly to achieve more that satisfactory results. He promised and over delivered. He gave us great advice for the future, which my whole family has taken to heart. I would not hesitate to hire him in the future, and would gladly refer him to anyone in need of his services.

Exceeded my expectations
I had a medical malpractice/personal injury case. I could not have asked for a better law firm in this complicated area of law. Michael Gatto and his professional legal team, which includes a medical doctor, gave me uniquely qualified representation. Gatto, who received a well-deserved Super Lawyer award, is a great communicator with good bedside manner and integrity. He is a very skilled negotiator and won a settlement for me that far exceeded my expectations. I cannot recommend him highly enough. Kit Berkeley, CA

Exceptional Attorney that I highly recommend!!!
Michael Gatto is a first class attorney with unsurpassed knowledge in his field. I felt like Michael took a personal interest in my case. I had never been through anything like this before and Michael was a huge supporter, which helped immensely with my stress level. He was always going above and beyond what I expected with my case. I could not have been happier with the outcome I received from my case. He came highly recommended to me by a PI who also worked on my case, which says a ton for his respect from other professionals. I have absolutely no reservation HIGHLY recommending Michael to represent you.

The only Medical Malpractice/Personal Injury Lawyer you need for your case.
At first, my husband and I would like to thank Mr. Michael Gatto for all his work in helping with our case. In mid 2009, we lost our beloved daughter. After six months, the shock subsided and we decided to hire an attorney. We contacted more than a dozen law firms in the Bay Area. None of them were willing to take our case. A few firms responded but said we didn’t have a case. Fortunately, we were referred to Mr. Gatto. He is a real professional, knowledgeable, intelligent, efficient, laborious, trustworthy, and has a remarkable personality. He shows his compassion and cares for his clients. We had an extremely stressful and difficult case against two doctors. Mr. Gatto always checked on us to make sure we were doing okay. He respected us and listened to everything we said while we were going through the toughest time in our lives. He was always there to answer any questions we had. Mr. Gatto always kept us updated with the latest information. He was our anchor through this heartbroken battle and eventually was able to get what he thought was the best for us. We are thankful for his efforts on our case not like other lawyers pushing us away from their doors. We truly appreciate him for taking our case. Anyone can find a lawyer, but not all of them can get the best. We were so lucky to have him represent us. We highly recommend Mr. Gatto to anyone seeking a Malpractice/Personal Injury Attorney that you can count on and he definitely will work hard for you.
