I was hit, by a car and run over in a cross-walk which left me unable to work for almost a year. My foot was crushed, and I had broken bones in my right wrist. The day after I called Andy Gillin, his investigator came to see me. I've known other people who were in accidents who had to either wait days to talk to an attorney, and had to figure out how to get to the law office.
Andy and Jim Larsen took care of all of my legal needs, answered every question, no matter how trivial, and made me feel taken care of. Being in an accident and losing income is very stressful and takes an emotional toll. No matter how stressed I sounded, or impatient I was ,or even demanding at times, they remained patient, helpful,, and made sure I got what I needed to recover. I never felt like I was infringing on their time, or interrupting their other work.
They also negotiated the best settlement possible for my circumstances. Although my case may not have been the most lucrative for them, both Andy and Jim made me feel like I was their most important client.
I would also like to add that everyone in their office particularly their assistants and receptionist were wonderful and responsive.
My case was not the exception. I had referred another friend who had recently had a negative experience with another attorney regarding a medical lawsuit.
She had the same more than positive opinion with Andy and Jim.
They are experienced, knowledgable experts, who stand up for their clients.

Andy got me and my family thru this process very fast and helpful. Anytime I needed answers or something to get me by he and his team didn't leave me in the dirt or hanging. This accident set me back a whole lot but if it wasn't for my attorneys I wouldn't have made it thru this.

Over many years I have received the benefit of Andy Gillin's excellent professional services. Andy's skillful analysis of the issues at hand, combined with his efficient negotiation of the required legal complexities have always been impressive. I have, and will continue to recommend Andy to anyone in need of a superb attorney.

Very bad things can suddenly happen to very good people. I was seriously injured when a truck suddenly seemed to come out of nowhere and hit me as I was crossing the street on foot. It didn't take long for me to realize that I was in no shape to deal with the aftermath of the accident myself. I needed to focus all my energy on healing and getting back on my feet. I asked friends for recommendations and Andrew Gillin's name came up more than once. I am so glad I found Andrew Gillin! From our very first conversation he put my mind at ease, and has dealt with every detail of my case with the kind of thoughtful professionalism and personal concern that is truly rare. In a very bad situation Andrew's vast experience and knowledge made all the difference in the recovery for my case. Andrew Gillin has my highest recommendation.
