Client Feedback

Phillip C Gilbert & Associates has had many happy customers.  Please take some time to review what they had to say (their own words).

 

Dear Phil,

All of your efforts on my behalf with regard to the automobile accident I was involved in July 2014 far exceeded my expectations.  You fought diligently for several months to insure that I was compensated fairly for the trauma and injuries sustained, keeping me fully informed on a regular basis about every aspect of my case.  Any questions I may have had during this time were always answered patiently and promptly either by yourself or your friendly, knowledgeable staff.  Truthfully, I felt like I was your number one client, knowing full well you had much larger cases you were also working on.  Thank you for treating me as a friend whose welfare you were genuinely concerned about.  Please  be secure in knowing  I will recommend you,  and your law firm, to anyone who needs an exceptional attorney.

Best regards,

Al C.

 

Dear Phillip:

I was seriously injured in a motorcycle accident after being hit by a car.  My brother recommended you and your firm to represent me.  Right away my wife was overwhelmed with bills and requests from the hospitals and insurance companies.  My wife then contacted your firm for help with our case.  From that moment forward you helped us in dealing with the insurance companies and care facilities.  You were always happy to answer our questions.  Everything was always clearly explained.  We could not have survived this without you!

Dean and Carlene S.

 

Dear Phil:

Thank you for all your work and guidance in my case.

I appreciate that while I was dealing with my injuries, two deaths in the family, and the hospitalization of my mother, you kept me on track in my case.  I always felt confident in you and that helped me greatly in focusing on what was immediately important to me.  From copying me in on every correspondence, providing me with timelines and ‘what to expect next,’ re-explaining details and remaining professionally patient, I really do appreciate it all.

I have already recommended you to friends who have been in accidents and will continue to do so.

Thank you for everything.

Debby S.

 

Phil –

Thanks a ton for your work on my case.  I’m grateful to have such an outstanding legal resource.  I will continue to lean on you for legal advice and will of course refer to you friends and family who may benefit from your services.

Thanks again!

Jeff H.

 

Phil –

Dave and I can’t even begin to express how very thankful we are!  Watching our one attorney taking on their five attorneys with such ease was amazing!  The judge held great respect for you, as did the jury!  We were all in literal awe of one attorney taking on this huge insurance company!  Just can’t say enough … you know your “staff” and underneath you’re a good ol’ country boy at heart!  You’re the Best.

Dave and Sandy C.

 

Phil Gilbert & Staff:

Thank you for all your efforts in helping to settle my auto injury claim.  I found myself walking out of your office mumbling ‘If you can’t trust your lawyer, who can you trust?’  Scary but true.  I think you had my best interests covered, unlike my auto insurance company.  To my surprise they were willing to cut me loose still hurting daily and my life forever changed by activities I can no longer do.  What I didn’t even think needed to be discussed further in the beginning ended up needing professional comment repeatedly.  I would not have had the slightest clue how to navigate through this process without you and your experienced staff.  Thanks.

Jenny N.

 

Phil:

Thank you for all your help. You answered all the questions I had and made everything go very smoothly. You’re incredibly easy to work with.

Nathan E.

 

Thank you Phil and we appreciate everything you have done for us; especially everything extra on your part to help us get the most out of this … We are thankful to have made a connection with you and feel you have been looking our for our best interests through this whole process.  Thank you for that and for all of your time, as well.  We will send good referrals your way.

Jessica K.

 

Hello Phillip:

I thank you for everything you did!  You just made everything so easy for me.  Know that if someone I know ever has a situation that requires legal services, I will be referring them to you.  I am all the way in Ireland and you made me comfortable even when I’m here.  You are a trustworthy man and anyone would be blessed if they choose you for their legal matters.

Thanks again for everything!

Arcelia P.

 

Dear Phil:

While I never would have asked to be in an accident in the first place, the best thing out of all of this has been getting to know you!!  We can’t think of another person that we would have wanted to walk us through this time in our lives … I really applaud how through this whole process you have answered all our questions … we are pleased with the outcome as it has unfolded.  We hope that we will be able to continue the relationship with you throughout the years to come.  Thanks again for all you have done.  God Bless.

Dear Phil:

There just aren’t words to describe how thankful we are to you and your staff for all of your hard work on my son’s case.  It has taken me a while to try to express our gratitude because a simple thank you just doesn’t cover how grateful we are.

A short time after Ray’s very tragic accident I received two messages from friends recommending an attorney.  Both said contact Phil Gilbert.  My family was in shock, still dealing with the fact that Ray may not survive.  I hadn’t even thought that far ahead yet.

Ray was in the hospital for twenty three days and seven surgeries later I felt I could leave long enough to meet with you.  You were already familiar with his accident from the news.

From that time on you handled all of the legal aspects of our long journey to a new life for Ray.  You got Ray a loss of work income started, as he was disabled from the accident, and took care of everything.  What a relief for my family to be able to concentrate solely on Ray’s recovery.

I know you and your staff was busy with other cases, but we felt that we were treated like a top priority case.  You answered every email the day I sent it and once I even received a response over the weekend.

Ray and the entire family will always be grateful for all the hard work on his case.  We have found you to be very professional and a kind caring man.  You waived your fee of over $31,000.00 in Ray’s case.  Who does that?  The extra funds have meant a world of difference in his life.

Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kindness towards Ray.  For all that you have done for him a simple thank you just is not enough.  We will be singing your praises and recommending your firm to everyone.

Sincerely,

Sandy L.

 

 

Phil:

This letter is long overdue! Since you settled the case, my father was diagnosed with Stage IV lung melanoma and I had another surgery on my brachial plexus that failed. Between the stress of dealing with dad and the increased pain from the surgery, I let this letter fall by the wayside.

I cannot thank you enough for all you did for Loni and me. We never thought that Providence would pay their policy limits before we went to mediation and/or trial. We know that would not have been the case if anyone else would have represented us. The amount of time you put into the case was paramount in saving us from the time and expense of mediation/trial. As you know, we did not want the case to go to trial because neither one of us could have sat through a two week trial due to our health problems. From our very first meeting I told you that stress caused my pain level to go through the roof, and how stressed I felt about filing a lawsuit. You told me not to worry about the battle, that you would carry me on your shoulders and fight long and hard on my behalf. I can honestly say you kept your word and made this process as easy as possible for both of us. You always kept us informed and let us know exactly what to expect step of the way.

As you know, Loni worked for insurance defense attorneys for over 15 years.  When we were looking for someone to represent us, she asked the attorneys she worked for who they would use if they ever needed to sue anyone regarding a personal injury claim. Every one of them (seven to be exact) recommended you. We highly recommend you. We have told everyone we know what an excellent job you did for us and would use you again, if the need ever arise. If any of your future clients would like to speak to us for a reference, please feel free to give them our number.  Thank you again Phil for your incredible representation. You are truly a “stand up” guy, and it has been our privilege to know you.

Sincerely,
Michael & Loni S.


Dear Phil:
We wanted to take this opportunity to again thank you for the amazing talents you used in the courtroom to help us win our case.  When we first talked we just could not believe we would have to sue our own insurance company.

When many people hear “LAWYER” they think first of a fast talking ambulance-chasing weasel; including us. Our thoughts changed when we came to see you and you spoke with us and made sure we understood everything without making us feel stupid.  We feel there is no true way to thank you for all the time and extra effort you put in for us. When we won in the courtroom we were both so speechless we felt we had no idea how to thank you. We now believe the best way is to let you know you will always be the lawyer of our choice and we will continue to tell everyone we know how good you are and how well you treated us. We believe anyone who might be shopping for a lawyer that cares and uses our language when talking with the client should knock on your door and let you handle it from there. If you ever have a client who has a doubt please have them give us a call.

Thanks again for being so fair and honest with us.
THE BATES FAMILY


Dear Mr. Gilbert:

We just want to send a very heartfelt thanks for your diligence in obtaining a very satisfactory settlement for us, and getting it to us just before the holidays. We felt that we were well represented by you, and your constant communication made us feel like we were a priority even tho the distance kept us from meeting physically.

Have to relate a cute story to you. We were never quite sure of the connection Bob Dean had to you and since he passed away last December we thought it would always remain a mystery. Then my sister-in-law called 2 weeks ago and said that Bob had called his insurance agent and asked him what attorney he feared the most. He said “I want you to give me the name of the lawyer that makes you want to quit your job.” He gave him your name without a second thought! I won’t hesitate recommending you to anyone in need of your services. The outcome was fair and we were very satisfied.

Mountains of Thanks!

Sincerely,
Teresa and Robert F.


Dear Mr Gilbert:

My wife Dona and I wanted to send you this letter of thanks for a job well done.  For a number of years now you and your staff have provided me with excellent service for business matters. As a manager at a multi-billion dollar company I am tasked with finding the best and brightest to serve our company and you have never disappointed me or my company. In fact you and your staff have always treated our company as if we were the only client you had, always making the time for any issue we brought to you.

Business assistance aside there is a far bigger reason my wife and I are sending this letter. As you know, while on vacation in Florida I was involved in a terrible accident and ended up at the hospital. When my wife asked “what do we do” I said “call Phil Gilbert, he will know what to do.”  We did and I was right, you knew exactly what to do.

First, however, you asked if I was going to be o.k. You showed concern and compassion, not what I would normally expect from any attorney. From there you took control of the situation. When the rental car company called and hassled me, you took care of it. When the hospitals and doctors called, you took care of it. Most importantly, when the insurance companies called you took care of that too. You and your staff responded every time I called and Dona and I always felt like you were treating us like family, not just a client.

Now that this is all behind us and the legal process is done there is a feeling of relief that you and your staff made possible for us. The road to physical recovery for me may be long but my family will not have concerns over doctor bills that are unpaid, or other stressful matters being unfinished.Phil, Dona and I sincerely thank you and your staff for taking care of us and treating us like family. It was your expertise that made the difference in our case, and your true concern for our well being that put us at ease. We will always refer anyone we know to your firm and you can rest assured that I will continue to contact you for business needs as well.

With our sincere gratitude.
Philip and Dona A.


Dear Mr. Gilbert

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your services related to the above referenced car accident. After two years of physical pain, my only wish was to make sure all the medical bills were paid in full. I never once entertained the notion that I could possibly be the recipient of a settlement distribution that provided me any amount of money, let alone the amount of $42,000 after all the bills were paid, including the fee for your services. Your skill at negotiating a reduction to the costs required by my own insurance company, as well as the main doctor involved in my recovery, contributed an additional $11,000 to the total that I received.

Since I have never been involved in such a situation before, I was unaware that any of this was even possible. It was also a surprise that this didn’t turn into a battle in a court room! My fears were abated by your knowledge and diligence on my behalf. For this I truly thank you. Your efforts turned what I believed would be a truly unpleasant situation into an outcome that became a pleasant one.

Mr. Gilbert, once again I thank you and your staff for keeping me informed and working on my behalf in a system of which I have no knowledge. My future is brighter due to your efforts! It would be my pleasure to recommend you to anyone who has little faith or knowledge of such situations, as one can be assured that you have the expertise needed to bring a favorable conclusion.

Sincerely,
Sandra C.


Just a note to say thank you. I know that you went out of your way for me many times throughout my recent ordeal.

I appreciate your honesty and directions. You told it like it is, without mincing words. I also appreciate always being informed of any developments, you’re the only attorney I’ve ever known who promptly returns phone calls!  All in all, you made the most difficult time in my life much easier, looking out for my best interests when I was unable to.

I will highly recommend you to anyone looking for an exceptional lawyer.

Thanks again,
Cheryl C.


Phillip,

Thank you so much for your help with my bank fraud issue. I really appreciate your graciousness.

Thanks again!

Thank you so much for all your help in regards to my husband’s bike/car accident. I know your time is more valuable then what you charged us and please know that if we or anyone we know needs legal advice we will send them your way.

for your kindness …

Thanks again,
Dave & Karen H.


Dear Phil,

Thank you so much for all the time and effort you put in for us. It took a long time and at times it was frustrating for us. We always had confidence that you would make it work. We will certainly recommend you to our friends. Thanks again for all you accomplished.

Sincerely,

To Mr. Gilbert & Staff

Thank you for all you have done for me. You have gone above and beyond my expectations. Have a good day.

Sincerely,
Teri M.


Dear Mr. Gilbert,

I wanted to thank you for all your help at a very difficult time for me after my accident. I have never needed an attorney before and I am glad I had you. You services were very professional and most of all you let me vent when I needed to the most. I felt very much at ease with you, you are very down to earth. Even though we only met one
time, and by the way you coming to my home to talk to me on our initial visit was so comforting. I appreciated you more than you know and I just wanted to say Thank You and let you know how much I needed you.

Have a great day, Phil
Carol E.


Phil
CONGRATULATIONS! You did a great job and got great results. You were awesome at trial.

Thanks so much for all you put into this case.

Larry & Sharon H.


Mr. Gilbert,

GO BEAVERS! Hope you were able to go to the Fiesta Bowl! Just wanted to say hi & I JUST CANT THANK YOU ENOUGH! Hope you had a wonderful Holiday & a great New Year! Thanks for everything you did for me and my family. 2000 was truly a great year, without all your hard work I would have never been able to win my case.

Thank you so very much.

Sincerely,
Sharon W. & Family


Dear Mr. Gilbert:

I just felt I needed to thank you again for all your hard work for me on my case. I am sure you are often involved in cases of far more importance, but that didn’t keep you from doing all that was needed for me. I know why Nancy and others that know of your work have such a high regard for you. From your May 23rd letter, I, too, hope that I will need not legal help in the future, but it is so good to know that you would consider me if I had that need.

Thank you so much.
Ed H.


To Whom it May Concern:

Phillip Gilbert has recently been my attorney for an automobile accident injury.  He was very professional and informative. He kept me informed of the long ongoing legal process in a timely fashion.

I would certainly request his services again, if the occasion presented itself and I would highly recommend him to my friends.

Sincerely,
Lavonne H.


Phillip:
I am writing to congratulate and thank you for the outstanding job you did representing me. I am very pleased with the results. I actually didn’t expect to receive as much as I did, so again thank you very much. I will recommend you to friends and family.

Trecell


Phil:

Thank you!  It’s been a long 3 years, I wanted you to know how much I appreciate all that you and your staff have done for me.

Thanks again! You’re the BEST.

Karen E.


Dear Phil:

I’m writing to express my appreciation for the work you did in my accident case.

First, I appreciate the fact that you were willing to stay with me for the amount of time it took to get to a point where we could settle.

I also appreciate all the work you had to do as a result of not only the time factor but also all the medical events. I would never have been able to gather together and sort out all the documents from the various places to put together a settlement offer.

Finally, the results that you achieved in the settlement were all that I expected. I know that it came about because of the professional manner in which you presented it to the school district representatives.

If I ever have need of an attorney or know of anyone who does, I’d certainly call you first.

Again, thanks for the wonderful results you secured for me and for all your effort.

Sincerely:
Vicki L.


Dear Phillip:

I wanted to write to thank you for your services you provided to me and my family. Due to your hard work and efforts, we finally feel a sense of closure and are ready to move on with our lives. You were a pleasure to work with and we would most definitely recommend your services to others.

Going through a horrific accident is something that ho one should have to go through and this contributed a great deal of stress to our lives over the past year. Not having any experience with traffic accidents of the criminal nature, we were often left wondering if the legal system and insurance companies would have our best interests in
mind. You were extremely helpful in setting realistic expectations and walking us through the process. These points are true for both the civil and criminal portions of our case. The criminal system proved to work and the insurance companies, through your direct intervention, came through in the end. As you know, we had a very difficult time dealing with the responsible party’s insurance, and we are confident that we would have not received the attention and settlement had you not been the point of contact.

Once again, we really appreciate your services and support over this past year.

Sincerely,
Charles D.


Dear Phil:

You’re Terrific!  I think so and I’m sure that Bob M has always known it……

Many, many thanks for your efforts in my behalf. I couldn’t have done it without you.

Gratefully,
Petie


Dear Phil:

Just a short note to say thank you! Our history goes back maybe seventeen years and all I can say is “wow.” Thank you again for being the best! You are one mean son-ofa-gun when it comes to winning!

Sincerely,
Marie G.


Dear Phil:

I just want to thank you and your staff for all you did in resolving my malpractice case. As you know the Oregon State Bar referred me to you in 2008.

I had no idea that I would have nerve damage to my legs and feet when the surgery had nothing to do with those areas of my body. I wanted the doctor, medical team and the hospital to take responsibility for what happened to me in surgery; many medical appointments, loss of work and altered life style.Martin Luther King Jr. Once said, “We will not remember the words of our enemies but the silence of our friends.” I thought the doctor, medical team and hospital were my friends but they wanted to minimize what happened to me.

I was a novice when it came to contacting an attorney and what the processes would encompass. You walked me through the witness process, then the deposition process and finally the resolution. My case was resolved in the mediation process on December 16, 2010 without going to court.

Your seasoned knowledge of the Judicial System, application of the laws allowed you to by my legal voice. I am very grateful for all you and your staff did on my behalf.

No more victim! Thanks again.

Respectfully,
Loretta R.


Hello Phil,

Here I sit in my office, feeling relief in my mind, body and soul. This last couple of months have been very stressful for all of us and I personally have worked through a great deal. You have worked relentless without any doubt or selfishness. There was no stone unturned and you always have had Shane and my best interest throughout this whole ordeal. I know you put your heart and soul into this case and went beyond the call of duty. Your sensitivity and thoughtfulness for Shane and my family holds very dear to my heart.

Phil, Shane and I want to “Thank you;” we appreciate all you have done to help us through this very difficult time in our lives.

Sincerely,
Dawn J.


Phillip –

Thank you! Thank you! & Thank you!

I appreciate all the HARD work. You’re the best. If your ever on St. Croix look me up. 🙂 Great job!

Sincerely,
Jana B.


Dear Phillip,

You have done a great job on my case. You’re a credit to the LEGAL PROFESSION.

Thank you!
Robert R.


To Phillip Gilbert,

We wanted to personally thank you for your hard work on our case. We know that our case was difficult and that over the last three years you invested a lot of time on our case and landed us positive results. Liz and I are very thankful that our friend Kurt recommended you.

With your knowledge in the law and your past experience in the insurance industry was certainly a plus for us. I truthfully feel you looked out for our best interest and that was very important to us.

Best wishes,
Allen and Elizabeth E.


Dear Phil:

Now that my case has resolved, many thank s to you and your staff are in order. I never realized the mound of paperwork and organization thereof, or the legal process involved. It is mind boggling! I am so thankful I didn’t have to fight my own case!

Needless to say I appreciated your canyon of knowledge, timely expertise, and staying on “top of it all.”  I am impressed.

You were highly referred to us as someone who gets the job done (a pit-bull that doesn’t back down). Knowing the source, we knew you had to be good! I’m disappointed only because I didn’t get to see that “pit-bull” in court action but am thankful we didn’t have to got there.

Thank you so much Phil. We will refer you to others with confidence when the opportunity arises.

Sincerely,
Sharon W.

 

Phil:

Many thanks to you for all the work you’ve done on my behalf these last almost two years.  Knowing that you were going to take care of things as I focused on dealing with my injuries gave me such peace of mind – and that’s something money can’t buy!  You’ve done much to make sure this process was “smooth and easy” for me and would end favorably, which attests to your expertise and kind heart.  And now, because of you, I’m able to close this chapter and move on (which is the best part of the story)!

With much thanks,

Rayna S.


Dear Phil

Thank you so much for helping me.

God Bless you and peace be with you always.

Sonya J.


Mr. Gilbert

Thank you for a job well done. Your simply the best.

Sincerely,
Peggy & Don S.


Dear Phillip,

I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I truly appreciate the time and dedication you gave to my case. I felt that you were up for the fight and were willing to take on obstacles that arose in order to provide me with the best possible outcome.

Throughout my case you kept me updated on new developments and information this truly was comforting for me and helped me to feel involved. I also want to thank you for working with my daughters, by providing them with the information they were able to translate and interpret for me and my husband. You were sensitive to the language
barrier and accommodating by providing an interpreter when my daughters were not available. I was happy with the outcome of my case and feel without you it would not have been possible. Overall working with you was a great experience for me and my family.

Thank you!
Mebrat A.

 

Phillip:

I want to thank you and your wonderful staff for everything you have done.  I know it was a trying ordeal for everyone involved.  You have done an amazing job for me.  I want you to know I could not have done this without you and your staff.  The best thing that came out of this trial was having the opportunity to meet you.  You are a wonderful lawyer and a great asset for justice for the little guy (like myself).  I will never forget you and hope you will keep in touch.

Thank you and keep in touch.

Karen F.

 

Mr. Gilbert,

I wanted to write you and thank you for resolving my legal matter without me ever having to be involved.  It was an unfortunate incident, which I am glad is now resolved and behind me thanks to you.  This was something which over the course of the matter was always in the back in my mind.  When my father told me you were going to be handling the matter it was as if some of this burden had been lifted.  I am well aware of your reputation and skill-set in these matters.  You have been a good friend and tremendous help to my father over the years in various matters; he speaks very highly of you and the things you have done for him.  I greatly appreciate the time and effort you dedicated to the matter.

Nick D.

 

Dear Phillip:

Thank you so much for all your hard work in regards to my auto accident.  I was being bullied by the insurance company and I am so grateful that you took all of that stress off of my shoulders.  You went above and beyond my expectations.  Thank you.

Lisa S.

 

Phil:

I am sending you this note to say thank you for a great job handling my auto accident case.  You are very professional, very time efficient, and are a very good attorney.  I will highly recommend you to friends and others that I meet who need legal representation.  I feel fortunate that you were on my team.  Thank you again for a job well done!

Tom R.

 

Mr. Gilbert:

Just a short note to thank you again for the timely and efficient manner you successfully handled my legal needs.  I would not hesitate to refer my friends and family for any of their legal needs.

Sincerely,

Dear Phil:

Thank you for all that you have done.  You have been a godsend to me.  Simply said from the heart … thank you.

Jeri H.

 

Dear Phillip:

I am writing to let you know that I am very thankful for your work on getting me my settlement.  As you know, I was referred to you by a very close family member.  There was no second thought on who to call when the accident happened.  I had a lot of anxiety about everything and you put me at ease.  As a result you everything settled with a great outcome …. I really appreciate your hard work and will refer everybody to you.  Thank you so very much.

Kelly M.

Tom R.

 

Just a little bit over a year ago my two sons and I were in an accident after talking to a friend that had let me know how helpful Phil was to him I met with Phil  and was pleasantly surprised to find a down-to-earth of a attorney who really just wanted to help me in a time of need. Phil took all stress away and dealt with it from beginning to finish and was always just a phone call away! Phil and his team did an incredible job to make a really bad situation turn into a brighter day. I highly recommend Phillip Gilbert for anyone who’s looking for an attorney to help them through a stressful situation.

Holly S.

 

To Phil and Your Associates –

I want to say thank you for doing such a great job for me.  I now have a lot of knowledge and understanding of how this system works.  I don’t know how this would’ve ended up without your help.  You guys are truly great.  Again, thanks so much!!!

Eric Y.

 

Phil,

Thank you for taking care of my case; I really appreciate it.
