Injury Case
Maria Gerber and Liz were fantastic in helping me with my daughter’s injury case. They are compassionate and knowledgeable with excellent communication. This team went above and beyond to have us compensated for medical expenses that came with this injury. The Gerber law firm was able to get the best possible outcome. I am very grateful for their hard work and empathy. I am very happy with the resolution and highly recommend this Law Firm.

A team that cares
My profession is the hospitality business and i can tell you Ms. Gerber and her office team took great care of my case with great detail. A lawyer with a hospitality touch. The line of communication was outstanding and the follow up from her office was on point. Everything was handled from doctors appointments to dealing with insurance companies. I was taken care of by this team.

Highly recommend
After getting rear-ended at a red light, I was a bit lost about what to do. I was recommended to Gerber Law by one of my autobody techs and reached out. They were so patient and understanding during the consultation that I chose to work with them. Throughout the entire process, Gerber Law kept me informed while they checked in about doctor and therapy appointments to ensure recovery was going well. They made sure I was comfortable and that all expenses were handled. Everyone has been so kind and professional. I’m very grateful for them guiding me through this process and hope everyone chooses Gerber Law in their time of need too.

Attorney Review
Maria is very conscientious in how she handled my case. This is the third time that Ms. Gerber has helped us with the legal matters involving an auto accident. Her office was very helpful in making sure medical issues were taken care of, with the clients health coming first. She was very patient and listened to us with resolving the financial aspects of our cases. I would highly recommend Attorney Maria Gerber to others who would want the same personable representation. Sincerely, Brenda

Gerber Law exceeds expectations.
Maria Gerber and her team were excellent. I could not recommend them more highly. She and her paralegal Liz were courteous, attentive, and went beyond what was expected of them after my car accident. They were in constant communication throughout the process, and genuinely cared about my well being from start to finish. They took a significant burden of time and stress off of me after my vehicle was totaled and I had to unexpectedly navigate the treacherous waters of purchasing a truck in this post-pandemic world. Not to mention, they got me a significantly larger settlement than I had anticipated. I could not be more pleased with my experience hiring Gerber Law, and would absolutely recommend them to anyone in need of legal advice.

Years later
9 years after Attorney Gerber successfully resolved my case, Medicare still had not closed its file and recently denied a claim it thought pertained to this accident. I contacted Liz (paralegal) who, within the hour, reviewed the matter and prepared a detailed letter to Medicare to get some long-overdue results. Excellent service.

Amazing Experience
From the first contact Maria and Liz were understanding and caring. It’s not easy navigating insurance companies and doctors, they made the process painless. I didn’t pay a cent out of pocket for medical bills or repairs to my vehicle and received a settlement for a lot more than I expected. They are amazing!!

Compassion
Can not express enough of the ,professionalism the whole Gerber Law team showed throughout the process of litigation. After an auto accident that resulted in a brain injury, they took the time and patience to explain every detail,sometimes multiple times. This was most helpful, when my thought processes were not sharp. Again many kudos to Gerber Law!!

Best Attorney around!
Look no further if you need a great attorney to represent you. Attorney Maria Gerber and her wonderful law firm has represented my family and I for many cases over the years. Unfortunately things do happen unexpectedly and you just don’t know what to do, who to ask, or where to go for assistance. Well I also found myself asking those same questions. My name is Jaden, I am 26 years old. In February 2021 I was in a situation where I was wrongly accused of causing severe damage to a security gate. I received a letter stating my vehicle was responsible, there is surveillance footage, and that I am to repay all damages within 15 days of notice. I was surprised to say the least. I called the number and asked to see the footage. The footage showed zero evidence that my vehicle was responsible. However, the attorney that was speaking with me wasn’t budging he seemed to be confident that I was at fault. I called Attorney Gerber. She listened to my story, watched the video countless times, and then she went to work! Few weeks later ( the monkey on my back) it was gone! I definitely recommend Attorney Gerber for your legal needs. Very intelligent, professional, confident, strong, punctual, and personable. Thank you again for always being there!

Gerber Law
To all the fine attorneys and staff @ Gerber Law, I picked the right counselors to help me make some critical decisions. While it will not heal issues with my physical disabilities, it will help me prepare for the next chapter of my life. Thanks again, Michael Kittredge

100% Would Recommend!
While the circumstances surrounding one's involvement with attorneys are almost never pleasant, my experience with Gerber Law has been outstanding. Following an auto incident that left permanent damage to my spine, Maria Gerber helped ease my anxiety, stress, and facilitated my treatment. She was responsive, reassuring, professional, and - above all - caring. She paid attention to the small details that I wouldn't even know to ask about. My experience with her paralegals, namely, Liz Owens, was just the same. The entire team answered all of my questions (and I had quite a few), created frequent touchpoint calls, and communicated honestly and effectively. I'd absolutely recommend working with Gerber Law.

Extremely Attentive and Knowledgeable
Maria and her team are incredibly knowledgeable and responsive. Perhaps even more impressive, her commitment to excellence is both refreshing and reassuring. I appreciate the level of expertise, compassion, and tenacity Maria has consistently demonstrated while I've had to navigate a painful recovery process and difficult insurance claim.

Stellar performance
Maria was professional, aggressive and successful. After breaking my back in a car accident, it was such a relief to have her take over all of my medical expenses so I didn't have to. Her negotiation with the insurance company was outstanding. No only did she avoid a lengthy trial, she recovered considerably more than I expected. As a bonus, she was able to reduce the medical bills considerably. Due to this, I recovered even MORE than I expected. My life will never be the same, but at least now, I can buy the things I desperately need to make my life a little more comfortable.
