Gard Law Firm has a reputation for being hard-nosed litigators and our tenacity earns us the respect of attorneys, judges and clients. Based on our reputation for meticulous preparation and well-honed trial skills, we are often hired by fellow attorneys to help where settlement has failed and the case must be taken to trial.

Some of notable examples of our work include:

Brain Injury

We negotiated a six-figure settlement for a client who suffered a brain injury caused by carbon monoxide exposure.  Brain injuries are one of the most difficult injuries to prove, but we have a proven method of doing so and the client was able to use the money to rebuild her life and career.

Business Litigation

We successfully defended a multi-million dollar business litigation claim in which the Plaintiff falsely claimed partial ownership of the business. Of note was the fact that the other side spent three times as much on legal fees only to be defeated in court.

Cannabis Litigation

We successfully defended a client who was at risk of losing its business license and were able to retain the license against long odds against the state attorney general’s office. This feat has been repeated many times over.

Civil Rights Discrimination

We negotiated a six-figure settlement for a victim of discrimination who was terminated from her job based on her disability. The client later went on to help other disabled folks retain their housing and obtain housing benefits

Construction Accident

We negotiated a substantial settlement for a client who sustained serious arm injuries when a negligent contractor drove into a light pole, causing it to crash through the client’s windshield.

Automobile Collision

We negotiated a substantial settlement on behalf of a client who sustained neck and back injuries in a rear-end automobile collision.  The insurance company tried to paint our client as faking the injury and deserving of no compensation.  We know how to stand up to such bully tactics and turn them to our client’s advantage.

Serious Injuries

We obtained a six-figure for a client who endured spinal and neck injuries in a serious fall caused by a negligent property manager. The defendant fought the case for over a year and were forced to finally concede the merits of our client’s claim.

Policy Limits

We obtained the insurance policy limits for a client hit by a drunk driver while commuting home on his motorcycle. Fortunately, the client made a full recovery and was able to use the money to start his own business once his injuries healed.  Insurance companies are loath to part with the full amount of insurance, but our proven track and trial reputation helped our client obtain such a result without going to trial.

Jury Trials

We successfully concluded an 8 day jury trial for a woman who suffered traumatic brain injuries in two successive automobile collisions. The insurance company tried to blame the prior accident and claimed our client was making false claims. The jury disagreed and found in favor of our client. One of our greatest assets is our willingness and ability to take cases to trial when settlement fails to achieve the right result.

What our clients say about us:

“In a bizarre accident I was rear ended repeatedly (at high speed) by a schizophrenic woman. The back injuries caused me to be out of work for several months and saddled me with a lifetime of intermittent lower back pain. I wanted to work with a law firm who was ethical, realistic and above all, responsive to me. Fortunately, a friend of a friend suggested I call Jeff Gard. Wow! What a difference! Jeff listened to me, came back with a reasonable approach and actually worked to get me about 3 times the amount I would have expected. Most of all, my experience was that they provided an outstanding level of service and integrity. I would recommend this firm to anyone and feel confident that they would receive the same consideration I did.”
