I was rear-ended on the freeway, and am thankful for the efforts Bruce Brusavich and the AGNEWBRUSAVICH staff put into settling my claims. Bruce was always so responsive to any questions or concerns I had, and I appreciate the professional manner with which he handled my case.

I was referred to AgnewBrusavich after being hit by a truck. The moment this happened the fear of medical bills, not being able to work, and replacing my damaged property was now a reality. As a teacher, not being able to work the summer was a financial nightmare, especially with medical bills building up. Gerry Agnew was very reassuring in all of our meetings, kept me updated, and made me feel comfortable and confident. From the start, Gerry handled everything from the multiple insurance companies to working with other attorneys to resolve our case. Gerry’s determination and patience helped me recover a substantial settlement that also paid the bills, covered the time I missed from work, and replaced all my damaged property

I was hit by a car while riding my bike and suffered multiple injuries. My bicycle and gear were also damaged in the accident. After a short analysis, I realized that dealing with the driver’s insurance company would be a complicated process. A colleague highly-recommended AgnewBrusavich, and when I met Gerald Agnew the next day, I knew he would help me get the best results possible. Gerry and his team always kept me informed about the development of my case. His entire team is very professional and was easy to get in touch with. They answered all of my questions and were very supportive throughout my case. The case was resolved after the completion of my lengthy recovery. I am extremely satisfied with the outcome. I would highly recommend the AngewBrusavich team for any personal injury matters.

When a car made an illegal U-turn directly in front of me, I collided with the vehicle and sustained injuries and property damage. I had heard of AgnewBrusavich from a number of other cyclists, and contacted Gerry Agnew. Gerry took care of everything, from gathering medical records to getting my damaged bicycle inspected to building my case file and managing all contact with the opposite party or their insurance company. He took the time to prepare everything thoroughly to ensure we were able to either proceed to trial or reach the best possible settlement—he emphasized that this would not be a short process, but he would do everything in his power to provide a solid outcome. Gerry and the rest of the AgnewBrusavich staff certainly delivered on their promises. I would not hesitate to recommend Gerry Agnew to anyone—he and his firm know exactly what they are doing, and take the time to do the very best job they can for their clients.

I was involved in an accident when a truck pulled out in front of my motorcycle on my way home from work. At first, I was dealing with the responsible party’s insurance company on my own, but kept running into delay after delay. I had even started to receive collection notices for the medical bills I had incurred. “A friend at work referred me to Gerry Agnew. Gerry and the entire AgnewBrusavich team took over everything and were a tremendous help. The insurance company was dealt with, the settlement was received, and I was very pleased with the results. I would not hesitate to recommend AgnewBrusavich to anyone needing the services of a great law firm.

After I and three others were hit by a pickup truck on a cycling trip, I wasn't sure how I would pay my medical bills. I was referred to Agnew Brusavich, and after meeting with Gerry I felt much better. He and his team handled all the communication between the insurance companies and opposing attorneys, and kept me up-to-date throughout the process. I'm happy to say that Gerry's patience and determination helped me obtain a substantial recovery and all my medical expenses, as well as the time I had to miss from work and more.
