Review by Joseph

I was injured in Baghdad while working as a personal security specialist. I didn’t get a lawyer until I was moved to Afghanistan and the insurance company started calling me to settle the case. My employer wanted me to settle even though I was cleared to return to work by my doctor. I called numerous attorneys and once they learned that I had returned to work, they were not interested in my case. Then I found Clifford Mermell at Gillis, Mermell & Pacheco, and he decided he would help me out even though I had returned to work. Ever since Mr. Mermell took my case, things turned in my favor. If Mr. Mermell was unavailable, his staff handled my calls professionally and with knowledge and patience and humor. I give a lot of credit to Mr. Mermell’s staff and even more to Mr. Mermell who got the job done. Ultimately, the Carrier started sending me letters that said that they had overpaid me and that they did not want to settle with me. Mr. Mermell convinced the Carrier that their was no overpayment and in fact convinced the Carrier to settle my case. Mr. Mermell stayed in close contact with me all the way through and got me a great result. I would never go anywhere else. He did a wonderful job for me and I have recommended him to my friends and family. I have told anyone who has a Defense Base Act claim, injured in the line of duty overseas, that this is the lawyer they need to see. And do it right away. Call Mr. Mermell at 305 595 3350 or email him at mail@gmpcomplaw.com.

It has been my pleasure to work with the firm of Gillis, Mermell & Pacheco. They were there with me at every turn through ups and downs in my Defense Base Act case, and even though I had slightly more difficult case, this law office stood by me and pushed through to the end with a great result. I would highly recommend them to anyone in the private security industry injured in Iraq, Afghanistan or anywhere else abroad.
