Trustworthy and effective
“I had a severe car accident several years ago. Unfortunately, despite much effort on my part to improve, my injuries were not resolving and actually appeared to be worsening. Eventually I felt I needed to hire an attorney and I went to [GLP Attorneys]. Amy Miller took on my case and from the start she was responsive to all my communications. She was also thoughtful and accommodating regarding my privacy and was sensitive to any concerns I had throughout the legal process.
We attempted to settle twice. However, the insurance company and defense attorney I was battling were extremely stubborn and unwilling to give us a fair settlement. Much to my dismay we became one of the very small percentage of people who actually go to trial for personal injury claims.
The process was stressful as expected. However, Amy did a great job of shielding me from undue stress and troubling information I did not need to know. She also worked very hard. She had tremendous drive and really advocated for me. Amy also has a great sense of humor and positive disposition. Surprisingly, I found myself actually enjoying portions of the trial because she is just a fun person to be around. Jim Gooding from GLP [Attorneys] became involved when we went to trial and also was fantastic. They seemed to work very well together.
In the end, despite valiant attempts by the defense to avoid reasonable compensation, the jury awarded us exactly what we had requested – 60 times the amount the defense had proposed during trial. The jury was in fact very close to awarding us more than we requested. What was equally as valuable to me is that I came out feeling respected with my character intact. It was a very gratifying ending to a long, drawn out, and at times, very stressful process.
Amy Miller is an absolute star. I will always be grateful to her and would not hesitate to recommend her for any personal injury litigation needs.”
Smart, personable, and WE WON!!
“Amy Miller recently handled a case regarding my insurance company that, after several years of attempted negotiation, went to trial. Amy and Jim Gooding worked amazingly well together, and several times I referred to them as the “dynamic duo.” Throughout the years handling the front end of my insurance case and again at trial, Amy has been in my corner. She is extremely knowledgable about the legal process, and responded quickly with care to any and all issues that arose. Amy kept me attuned to what was important and helped me let go of anything I should not worry about. Her positivity attitude helped me a great deal. As a result of the work of Amy and Jim, we were awarded more than what we even requested and set a legal precedent. Thank you Amy, and GLP [Attorneys]!!”
