I hired Gerard W. O’Brien in 2011 for a Chapter Eleven bankruptcy proceeding. He guided us through the process, was easy to work with and was able to get a plan confirmed. We are well on our way back to financial stability and success. I feel he was a great value and I would hire him again.

Mr. O'Brien prepared a Living Trust and related documents for me and my wife. He thoroughly explained the process to us and his fee for the legal work was disclosed up front and extremely reasonable. There were no hard sell tactics nor did Mr. O'Brien try to sell us additional legal products which would have been "overkill" for our needs. In summary, we are very pleased with the experience and will refer other clients to him for legal services.

Mr. O'Brien has done an excellent job of explaining and guiding myself through the bankruptcy process. He made the complicated aspects easy to understand and devoted a generous amount of time to ensuring that my paperwork was complete and correct. Anyone who needs help with a bankruptcy would do well to call him as a lawyer who not only does a great job, but takes the stress and anxiety out of a tumultuous situation. A true five star lawyer!

Mr. O'Brien was enthusiastic, and always on top of the matters dealing with my case. In fact, he went above and beyond to assist me and his fees were very reasonable. Mr. O'Brien rotund my calls and emails within a couple of hours not days which made my burdens much easier. I would highly recommend Mr. O'Brien. In fact I will require his assistance in another matter and look forward to dealing with him. It is a comfortable feeling to work with someone who stands up for your rights.

Jerry was very professional and helpful in managing all the paperwork for my late fathers trust. He was very prompt responding to questions and thorough in his paperwork. He walked me through the process and law in plain language that made an otherwise difficult situation pleasurable. I would highly recommend.

Jerry worked with a family that had two deaths in one year. Real estate property was involved and the beneficiary needed a good lawyer to advise them and help them. Jerry did just that and involved me with the renovations and then sale of the property. This could not have gone better and the client's expectations were far exceeded. I know have an investment property relationship with the beneficiary. This could not have happened without Jerry's professionalism and careful planning and execution.
