It had been three years of a very contentious divorce and I did not have an end in sight. I knew that something different had to happen in order to wrap up the proceedings. My faith in attorneys and the legal system had been broken. I had heard the name Bill Gwire in various social settings. People spoke very highly of him. His reputation was that of an accomplished attorney who did know how to get the job done, also, very reliable, trustworthy and respectful. I felt like he was my last hope. Upon our initial meeting, he helped to begin to build the process of faith once more. I retained him and we did get the ball rolling, quickly. I appreciated the fact that he was direct and to the point. Bill took action swiftly and concisely. Using a team building approach, we dismantled the team of attorneys, accountants and judges that had been amassing over the duration of the case. Thanks to Bill and his incredible knowledge of the judicial system, he was able to remove each person, one by one.

Regrettably once the divorce proceedings were complete, it did not end there. The financial ramifications of having a legal team of over five representatives had billings of over a million dollars. With good reason, we did not agree on the final payment structure. Using his keen instinct, incredible negotiation skills and overall brilliance, Bill was able to help me negotiate a fair and swift settlement which allowed us all to walk away and completely end the case.

I am incredibly grateful for having had the opportunity to meet and work with Bill Gwire. Bill is one of the very few honest, kind and reputable attorneys. He is one of a kind in his field. I would recommend him, with the highest regards, to anyone who is facing litigation. Thank you Bill for everything you did!!!!

Client Alert #2: Mediation Traps

We are big believers in mediation.  But as a result of a fairly recent California Supreme Court case, mediation has become a potentially terrible trap for clients. 

 

IF YOU ARE GOING INTO A MEDIATION WITH THE OTHER SIDE, YOU MUST BE AWARE OF THIS ISSUE, BECAUSE YOUR LAWYER WON’T TELL YOU ABOUT IT.

Legal Malpractice From a Medical Malpractice Case

Not what you would normally think of for a legal malpractice case arising out of a medical malpractice case.  We represented a well regarded physician  who was represented by a lawyer in a medical malpractice case.  The medical malpractice case was settled with doctor's patient, but lawyer was grossly negligent in post-settlement procedures resulting in an unusual disciplinary action by the California Medical Board against doctor (who had no involvement with the lawyer’s action and didn’t even know about it). The lawyer’s conduct caused an unfavorable comment to be made against the doctor's record on the Medical Board’s website.
