After a car accident, I was left completely blind in one eye. I wasn’t sure who to turn to until I spoke with Gerling Law. From the beginning, I was completely blown away with the service I received at the firm. My attorney, Nikki Roby, and her paralegal, Jennifer Bland, were fantastic. Both my friend and I had to go through the process and we both were more than satisfied. I cannot say enough about how awesome the team was throughout the whole case. I would recommend Gerling Law to my friends, family, or anyone in need of an attorney for any injury. - Anne S.
