As an individual with a significant visual impairment, I really wanted to get a behind the scenes look at what it's like to run a law firm and working with people with disabilities. Clients can expect a very client centered approach, a very strong advocate, and someone who is willing to go at it for their clients. I have seen Heather advocate very strongly to make sure that clients can get the best outcome for their situation.
It was wonderful. They were very kind. Very helpful. Made it very easy for us to work together. We came to Gilbert Law, primarily to update an existing will and to establish a health care directive. It was wonderful. Very personable. Answered all of our questions. It was great. I would definitely recommend Gilbert Law for being professional and relational. I feel content that those two pieces are put together.
One of the reasons why I came to Gilbert Law is because we launched a new firm and I needed somebody who not only understood the law aspect of it, but the mission that I was engaged with - which was to represent funders of color - specifically in the technology space. When I first contacted Gilbert Law, I was feeling a little bit overwhelmed in the sense that there were so many complexities when it comes to business law and venture capital, especially when it comes to finances. The lawyers really make it easy, to simplify things and take the time so I could understand things. Going into meetings, I don't have to second guess things to make sure certain things were taken care of. I can speak more authoritatively. I'm more equip now today, than I was before. I recommend Gilbert Law. If you really want someone who's going to sit down and not just talk at you, but talk with you and engage, I feel like this is the firm you want to go with.
I would definitely recommend Gilbert Law. They were the strong voice that I needed to win my case and fight for justice. I first came to Gilbert Law for representation because I was born with severe to profound hearing loss and my employer was discriminating against me by failing to accommodate me. They would not provide live captioning which I needed and as a result I was not able to do my job successfully and confidently. I was feeling overwhelmed. I was feeling hopeless. I was feeling really anxious. I felt like I didn't have a voice.
I knew that I needed an attorney that not only knowledge but direct experience working with other individuals that are deaf or hard of hearing. And of course an attorney experienced in discrimination claims. Heather Gilbert was very patient with me in explaining things. She was also very direct when needed so I could understand what I could expect in my case.
