    Qualifications

    GTS is the only multi-member law firm in Charlotte County (Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, Englewood) in which every attorney is AV rated by Martindale Hubbell, the leading nationwide legal directory for rating attorneys in the United States for well over 100 years. An attorney’s Martindale Hubbell rating is based upon the confidential opinions of other attorneys and judges. An AV rating, the highest attorney rating awarded by Martindale-Hubbell, signifies that an attorney’s peers rank him/her at the highest level of professional excellence. Attorneys and judges have relied on Martindale-Hubbell peer review ratings for well over a century, and you can as well. Please take just a few short minutes to view this link to Martindale-Hubbell’s ratings explanations page – the information is invaluable.

    Personal Service

    When you hire a particular attorney, you have every right to expect that your attorney is actually the person who is providing the day-in and day-out services needed to make sure your case resolves in the best possible manner for you. How would you feel to learn that, instead, the bulk of legal services you believed were being provided by your lawyer were actually being provided instead by a legion of paralegals, assistants, and support staff? At GTS, your lawyer is the person who handles every aspect of your legal matter, from start to finish without exception.

    Many personal injury law firms ascribe to the “assembly line” theory of legal practice, in that many different staff members are “in charge” of different aspects of your personal injury claim. Under this model, there is never a single person you can call upon for a definitive answer on the entirety of your case; it’s actually much like calling a large national bank’s toll free number and being transferred multiple times to different people and departments because there’s just never a single person that can answer what should be a fairly simple question. At GTS, Jason B. Goldman and his paralegal, Karen Simmons, will handle each and every aspect of your personal injury claim from start to finish. When you call with questions, you will speak only with Jason Goldman and Karen Simmons. When you come into the office to sit down in person to go over aspects of your claim, you will be sitting down with Jason Goldman and Karen Simmons. When you retain our office to assist with your personal injury claim, you know exactly who you will be talking to, meeting with, and relying on at all times.

    Homegrown

    Each of our attorneys grew up, attended public schools, and ultimately returned to Charlotte County to raise our families. We don’t just “maintain a law office” in Charlotte County – this is our actual home.

    Office Atmosphere

    People do not look forward to contacting an attorney, but we aim to change that. While we take our clients’ legal issues quite seriously, the experience in working with an attorney doesn’t have to be unpleasant, scary, or uncomfortable. Common phrases we hear from clients regarding our service and communications abilities are “straight-forward”, “to the point”, “felt at ease”, “reassuring”, “responsive”, “open lines of communication”, and “plain English”. Our clients actually enjoy seeing us and talking to us.

    We Dislike Advertising!

    You will not be able to find an advertisement for our firm on a billboard, bus-stop bench, or yellow pages. You won’t see us at all on television or hear us on the radio each and every day. Instead, the vast majority of our clients hire us based on referrals made by other happy clients, or referrals from other local attorneys. We’re also very happy when potential clients take the time to review our Martindale Hubbell ratings, qualifications, and client testimonials online. Clients hire us because they feel confident we can help them, not because we have our names and faces plastered on billboards, television, radio, and yellow pages.
