A Law Firm Of AV-Rated Attorneys & Super Lawyers

Not every law firm is given the pre-eminent distinction by their peers. At LGKG, attorneys Charles W. Garbett, Lawrence M. Kelly and Joseph A. George have been AV Preeminent-rated by Martindale-Hubbell. AV Preeminent rating represents the highest rating of legal ability and ethics as determined by members of the bar and judiciary.** All three attorneys also have received the distinction of being named to the Super Lawyers list multiple times.

We Try Cases, And Insurance Companies Know It

Not every injury or accident case goes to trial, but if yours does, you need a lawyer who has been there before. If a personal injury lawyer has a reputation for avoiding going to court, the insurer has little incentive to offer full compensation. LGKG prepares every case as if it will go to trial, and we have board-certified civil trial specialists* who

will try your case if it is in your best interests to do so. Insurance companies do not always do what they say they are going to do. We make sure insurance companies keep their promises. Where negligence has caused a serious personal injury or wrongful death, LGKG will work to assure that you receive fair compensation.
