People come to our firm when they need attorneys who have the time to listen, create a customized solution and work with them closely throughout the settlement and litigation process. Clients meet directly with one of our three attorneys, not with an assistant, paralegal or junior attorney. Unlike many firms, an attorney will handle your case from start to finish. At Gergen, Gergen & Pretto, S.C. we strive to ensure every client and every case gets the attention they deserve.

Our attorneys value frequent communication with you. We will not leave you in the dark about your case. We have a long history of success in court and will talk you through the process from start to finish. Having had success in court yields better settlement offers and constant communication yields better client relationships.

We know how to meet your legal needs with personal attention and care. If you need home or hospital visits for personal injury, civil and estate planning cases, we will come to you. We handle personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning you won’t pay attorney’s fees unless we are successful. We are here to help you. Give us a call.
