Review by Alvaro

I hired Gillis, Mermell & Pacheco to take care of my defense base act case because I was overwhelmed. I had very serious injuries and lost my eye. Clifford Mermell and David Pacheco are excellent lawyers. They took care of me and cared about my case. They made me feel very comfortable and that I was in good hands. I highly recommend them to anyone injured in Iraq, Afghanistan, Kuwait or anywhere overseas. You can find them at
