The Lawyer Who Gave Back My Life
After my shoulder injury from lifting a patient, my life was devastated. At first, I did not think I was in need of legal help until I felt my recovery was being manipulated. I researched online and found a few good law firms in the bay area..... Boxer and Gerson seemed to be standing out from the rest with highly reputable lawyers, experts in Worker’s Compensation. Amongst Boxer and Gerson's lawyers, I was particularly impressed by Atty. Gary Lee’s profile who was a summa cum laude of UCSF School of Law, has a medical background, decades of successful legal experience specifically in the field of Worker's Compensation, active in community service, etc. All these are solid qualities of a strong injury lawyer. I consulted with him, he listened attentively to what I have to say about my injury and my situation, and he explained to me the process very well that helped me understand what to expect. Atty Gary is very intelligent, very sharp and tough that I knew I was in good hands. The trauma I had regarding my injury was eased by his strong representation. He took control of my case and successfully represented me. (Due to my condition, I did not have to be present during the hearing with the judge.) I highly recommend Atty. Gary. He has been instrumental to my recovery, physically, emotionally, and mentally. I trusted him my future. He gave me back my life.
