I want to thank Melissa Carter for her outstanding efforts in getting my case resolved.
My wife and I are so grateful she was there for us every step of the way, providing detailed information and advice. It is a daunting process and
overwhelming but she encouraged us to take our time to digest all of the information so we would arrive at our desired outcome.
Melissa is very competent and cares deeply about her clients, it was evident throughout the time we spent with her.

I was injured in a car accident and hired Melissa based on a referral. I was very happy with the results of my case, which I felt were fair. During the course of my treatment, Melissa was one of the most understanding and supportive people I dealt with. I felt like she had my back 100% and would do whatever it took to get the best outcome in my case. She was very familiar with my condition, which was more helpful that I imagined, not just for my case, but for my peace of mind! She went out of her way to be available to me when I needed to speak with her, and her paralegal Rachel was great, too.
One of the things that I loved about working with Melissa was that she is whip smart and tenacious - I felt like I could leave it to her to take care of everything, which she did. Melissa is highly intelligent, but she was able to speak to me about legal matters as though we were friends and without me feeling lost in the legal jargon. I would hire Melissa in an instant for any personal injury in the future, though I hope I never have to.

I hired Melissa Carter and Adler Giersch after I was injured in 2015. Melissa is an excellent attorney. She is responsive, whip-smart, and compassionate. I recommend Melissa Carter and her firm without hesitation.

Melissa and her team did a great job in managing and fighting for my health and well being with the insurance companies. The party at fault was underinsured and my PIP did not cover anywhere near the cost of my treatment. Plus, the company where I worked was bought by a different company and subsequently I lost my job and had to find a new one - while dealing with a concussion and many other injuries. Melissa handled 4 different insurers during the course of my treatment. I could never have done that without her. I could not read, remember or plan with a concussion, let alone dealing with all the insurances. She made it so easy for me which helped my family, too.

From the minute I hired Melissa she went 100 MPH on my case. She returned all of my calls and emails within hours, was always one step ahead of the insurance company and had a game plan from day one. Melissa is the most competent, professional Attorney I have ever had the pleasure of working with. We settled with my full amount well before I expected too. I HIGHLY recommend Melissa Carter, you will not be disappointed.

A friend referred me to Melissa Carter after my car accident in January of 2015. Even though the police report showed the person who hit me was 100% at fault, their insurance company questioned me extensively. I got the distinct feeling they were going to be difficult to work with.
The crash was at a high speed, so it took me over a year of rehabilitation to return to my former activities, like running, hiking and gardening. Melissa was an amazing lawyer who helped me through the entire process. I was very pleased with my settlement amount and owe it all to Melissa! I’ve thanked my friend profusely for the wonderful referral!

I was hit by a car in a crosswalk, slam dunk you’d think but it wasn’t. After the woman hit me she got out of her car and stated that it was all her fault, she said that she had looked to the left but not the right. Later, when she was interviewed by a police officer, she stated that I appeared out of nowhere, that it wasn’t her fault. The officer did not interview me as I was being treated by an aid car. He wrote it up as equally my fault and hers. She didn’t receive a ticket. Later I checked the online statement and found what he’d done. I phoned the officer and he was mean; he told me I could write a statement and bring it in. I did that. He never filed the statement. Melissa Carter was recommended to me and I met with her and her assistant Rachel Maguda.
I was so upset by the whole situation, and my ongoing physical problems, I informed them that I wanted them to handle it all and keep me out of it as much as possible. Melissa Carter’s private investigator found a witness – miraculous -- and she had the same statement as mine. Melissa Carter was able to talk the police officer into opening the case so that I could submit a statement, she submitted it for me. Melissa Carter and her team cheered with me when the witness was found and were supportive and kind through the entire ordeal, through both the perpetrator’s and my own insurance settlements. When I received the settlement and billing information I was happily surprised at how little was charged for the amount of work that was done. They worked miracles to help me.
I HIGHLY recommend Melissa Carter and her team at Adler Geirsch. They are ethical, efficient, and kind.

What can I say about Melissa that has not already been said about candy and all things heavenly; she is FANTASTIC! My wife was involved in a motor vehicle accident that greatly changed both of our lives forever. Melissa and the team at Adler Geirsch have exceeded our expectations from day 1. Melissa and team went to bat for us and worked incredibly hard throughout the process.
I was really worried how the process would play out with the insurance companies as today's laws are heavily in favor of insurance companies (not the people most hurt in accidents). Melissa fought for us and used her extensive knowledge to get us everything she could. In the end, her attention to detail, abundance of knowledge, caring demeanor and overall likability got us what we wanted. Wouldn't dare go with another lawyer or another firm if ever faced with such a hardship.

After I broke my ankle, I was swamped with medical bills and the two parties involved were each pointing the finger at each other. After unsuccessfully trying to resolve the issue myself, I talked with Melissa. She worked with me on a regular basis for the almost three years that it took to complete my treatments and file our claim. There is absolutely no way I would have been able to navigate the system without her.
She is extremely knowledgeable about personal injury claims and gave me great information at every turn. Aside from her expertise, I also really appreciated her kind nature. She was very patient and genuinely concerned about my recovery and prognosis.

In 2014, I was t-boned by a motorist who ran a red light. My van was totaled and my back was broken in two places. At first I tried to handle my case myself but I quickly realized I needed an expert to help me. The other party’s insurance had admitted guilt but was very difficult to work with. Adler Giersch was recommended by one of my physical therapists. They had helped her and she was confident they’d be able to help me as well. I made the call and was introduced to Melissa Carter.
Melissa never sugar coated anything, she always gave me realistic conclusions based on years of experience. While it was stressful to know that my case was not a sure bet, I respected Melissa’s decision to explain all the possible outcomes. She meticulously went over with me what she and her paralegal, Rachael Maguda would need to have the greatest chance for success. Using the information I provided her and pouring over the pages and pages of legalese concerning my case, Melissa made my demand to the other party’s insurance. Coming into our final meeting, I expected Melissa to tell me she had done her best to get me what she could but I would still owe money for all of my medical expenses: these totaled over two hundred thousand dollars. I was dumbfounded when she announced she’d managed to get me the maximum amount from the other party’s insurance and was able to reduce my medical bills by more than eighty percent!
After seeing firsthand how hard Melissa works and how much pride she takes in her job, I would recommend Adler Giersch to anyone. While Melissa could never guarantee such a positive outcome for everyone, I believe she would work tirelessly to achieve one.
