Now retired from Firm membership, Gary continues to offer his services as a mediator. His decades of litigation experience make him an ideal choice for mediation work, which is delicate, nuanced, and requires a unique skillset that not every lawyer possesses.

He will come to the table fully prepared and immersed in the facts.
During his years of practice, he regularly worked with clients to defend product liability and other personal injury claims and to resolve business disputes. He was called upon to assess, document, and report incidents that include personal injuries where immediate response is a critical component in the ultimate resolution of the case.
He has represented companies in a variety of industries including manufacturing, trucking, coal, natural gas, chemical, and construction. He’s helped companies respond immediately, efficiently, and fairly to personal injury, property damage, and product liability suits. He’s successfully defended and represented large corporations in trial on issues ranging from personal injury cases to business disputes.
