Mr. Andrew R. Gillin has always made us feel welcome to call him anytime. Mr. Gillin was never too busy to listen when we called him. Mr. Gillin has done top rate job on our case. Mr. Andrew R. Gillin always kept us informed about the case. Mr. Gillin would let us know immediately if there was important information that we needed to know. Mr. Gillin would pick up his phone when we called him. We are very satisfied and happy that Mr. Andrew R. Gillin had done an excellent job on our case. Mr. Gillin had taken over our case from an attorney that was not qualified to handle it and had done a terrible job. Mr. Gillin was able to turn our case around successfully within six month and he had gotten us the maximum amount. We are very grateful for Mr. Andrew R. Gillin’s extraordinary services that he had put into the case. Our case would not have been a success, if it wasn’t for Mr. Gillin’s dedication and hard work that he had put into. Again, thank you for all your help in bringing success to our case!
