"What an experience! Everyone is always afraid to prove that they are eligible to receive what’s rightfully there’s. I know I was. I was in a terrible roll over accident 3 years ago which changed my life completely. Went under many surgeries, was not working, could not do things for myself for a year. I had insurance thru State Farm and always wondered how I could use it to benefit myself. The girl that caused the accident didn’t even have the state min requirement. Which made things even harder on me! Well, I went ahead and called Robert Boatman and Eleanor Shaffer to see if I have something worth fighting for. I went to their office and felt comfortable. We joked, got to know each other and then we dig into my case. We went over everything and they said let’s do this! We worked hard for over a year going back and forth with my insurance but we didn’t give up. They worked endlessly to ensure that everything this insurance company threw our way we could beat it. Eleanor checked in with me so much- always filled me in and answered any question I had. At one point State Farm was not budging. But with these two in my corner no one could stop them. We ended up getting the full amount my insurance refused to give me in the beginning and middle but not the end. Eleanor went as far as even seeing what else my other insurance policies could do for me. Fast forward to the present- I still call them for questions regarding any medical bills, surgeries, questions that I have etc., and they don’t hesitate to treat me the best (even after the case was won) they have now become someone I consider close friends. I couldn’t and wouldn’t recommend anyone else to defend me at the worst times."

"My son was struck on his motorcycle by a careless driver. The injuries sustained were life threatening with a minute by minute prognosis for the first 3 days. Sub acute facilities and many doctors visits. From the moment we became clients with G&K, we were treated with dignity, concern and respect. My first point of contact was Angel Medina , he was efficient and on point with communication and gathering everything that was needed. Robert Boatman explained in detail the entire process and answered all my questions honestly and thoroughly. Finally, Maria Raciti officially represented our case and was absolutely top notch! She worked diligently on my son's behalf , with compassion and empathy! No stone was left unturned when it came to getting the best settlement possible and so much more! The passion she exhibits for her clients is truly amazing. Maria made sure we did not stress on any part of this case so we could focus on my son's care and aftercare. I 100% recommend this firm and if you get an opportunity to retain Maria Raciti, know you will have a warrior on your side!"

"Robert Boatman and Shannon Clark were extremely professional, thorough, and compassionate representing us in a very sensitive personal injury claim. The availability, expertise, and diligence that they and their team represented in our case returned results that exceeded our expectations while being sensitive to our experience. We are greatly appreciative."

“Bob Boatman and Maria Raciti are representing me in a serious GSW case. I feel so relieved to have them on my side. They are super responsive and truly care about my injuries. They’re not going to take the first and easiest settlement offer; they’re fighting for just compensation. I highly recommend anyone needing an injury attorney call Bob and Maria and the G&K injury team."
Shawna Vanley

“I highly recommend anyone who is looking for an auto injury attorney to lawyers of G & K. Eleanor, Bob, Karen, and the entire team went above and beyond with my motor vehicle case, they were consistent with follow up calls, 100% on strong work, feedback, and clear guidance in my case with outstanding results. Their detailed follow ups and check-ins calls were always my piece of mind through the entire process. Thank you for your support and dedication to my case!”
