TESTIMONIALS

"I have known Gayle since 1998. When I was injured in May of 2000 at Lowes Motor Speedway I hired one of the largest law firms in NC.  I later fired them because my case was just another case to them and I was not injured in a car accident.  I turned it over to Gayle and she gave my case the attention and detail needed to prevail.  Bigger is not better when it comes to personal attention.  She worked my case and did what I wanted.  I recommend Gayle; she got the job done for me.  Without Gayle's attention to detail, I am sure I would have missed a date that was critical to the success of my case."

Gayle's Top Qualities: Great Results, Personable, High Integrity
Scott Hansen, Muskegon, MI

"It was a pleasure working with Gayle on a case that I thought would go to trial. Her persistence and attention to detail were crucial in bringing this difficult matter to resolution. I look forward to having an opportunity to work with Gayle again in the future."

Nat Smith, attorney with Bagwell, Holt, Smith, Jones & Crowson, P. A.
