She’s who you need in your corner!
My family has unfortunately been bombarded with MVCs over the last few years. GLP was recommended to us and we have been outstanding. Kaitlyn is/has handled 3 of the 4 claims and has been so easy to work with. It’s difficult enough to deal with the physical and emotional impact of an accident. Being able to hand it all over to her Kaitlyn has been the biggest blessing. Her dignity, perseverance, and integrity have been monumental in sustaining my personal mental health throughout this process. I am confident that she and her team have done all that they can within their means, including going far beyond the call. Thank you so much, Kaitlin and crew! I hope I never need your services again, but if I do, I’ll be calling, and I’ll always pass your name along with a good word. Thank you for helping out family during the most difficult times.

Representing Veterans
I hired Kaitlin Roach on August 2018 and since she has always kept good communication with me and helping me understand my case in the pros and cons she is one that you want on your side she cares Values her job very much and loves to work and represent veterans in their injuries. After shopping around for several days am glad that I found the right attorney to have represented me and even gave me good results. Thank You Kaitlin for being my attorney and friend through this process. Someone Who Cares ‘Kaitlin Roach’.

Kaitlin is the Best!!!
I hired Kaitlin Roach to help me to get my medical bills paid for an auto accident I was in, back in January of 2014. The auto accident was not my fault but hard to prove because it didn’t happen on a busy street. Kaitlin worked her backside off for over 3 years and pulled together mountains of evidence. She never gave up. It was a very difficult case but she made it easy for me. I kept in contact with her and I really didn’t have to because Kaitlin was fabulous about keeping me in the loop. There were some difficulties in my case because of health issues, but Kaitlin was up for the challenge & successfully won my case, getting my medical bills paid and a cash settlement for pain and suffering. She is a legal genius and I highly recommend her for the work she specializes in. She is the very best!

Great attorney to deal with.
Recently we were forced to hire an attorney to deal with a traffic collision. We went with Attorney Kaitlin Roach at GLP Attorneys. They all went above and beyond in making this as painless as possible. They dealt with us fairly and made sure we always knew what was going on and what our options were. We have heard horror stories about dealing with other attorneys and being unable to communicate with them properly, that was not the case here. They always answered us promptly. I hope we never have to deal with the legal system again but if we do, we know who we will contact.
