Large-firm resources with small-firm attention

Each of our attorneys works directly with her or his own paralegal and secretary, creating a team of highly skilled professionals who handle every detail of your case. This means that you have at least three people diligently resolving your claim. Through this team approach, we are able to address every detail of your case and expedite its completion for quicker recovery of damages. You can count on the personal attention that is a hallmark of our firm.

Our extensive resources also allow us to successfully litigate large and complex injury cases. We have won several million-dollar verdicts and settlements, and we have reached maximum available awards in our other injury, catastrophic accident, medical malpractice, auto accident and workers compensation.

Supporting your right to pursue just compensation

Gelman Gelman Wiskow & McCarthy LLC handles all of its cases on a contingency basis; you do not owe us for attorneys’ fees until we recover damages on your claim. In addition, our firm advances all costs of litigation in most cases. To lower costs, our in-house staff performs most investigations, and we retain outside investigators only if we determine that it is likely to increase your final damages award. We clearly explain our billing process at your no-obligation, free initial consultation so you know exactly what to expect.
