He was very helpful
I hired Gary Nitsche as my attorney and he was very helpful and determined to resolve my case. Stayed on top of everything, along with keeping me updated with changes. I thank him and his office and would/will recommend him to anyone in need of a attorney.
I needed some advice regarding putting my grandson on my auto policy. I had a free phone conversation with Mr. Nitsche, and he answered my questions very professionally and to the point. He was a very nice man. I am now feeling so relieved and am happy about my decision.
From the first phone call I made to the office up until now. Has been a great. Mr. Nitsche took my case with no hesitation. The firm helped me received everything I needed to get compensated for my accident and more. The staff was wonderful and I just want to say thank you.
A great attorney
Very professional and caring. He goes that extra mile to help you. Gary made me feel more tag just a client, he made me feel like family. His paralegal, Myra was very prompt and professional. Soon as I called the office and couldn't get through my call was returned immediately. I would recommend Mr. Nitsche as the lawyer you would need and want.
Great service, great team!
Gary & his staff were very sensitive with my mom (who is elderly) coming to her when needed, arranging meetings to be sure she was comfortable. Answered questions quickly & thoroughly. Made a very difficult situation for our family much easier to navigate - can't thank them enough!
