You never want to find yourself needing an injury attorney, but if you do, having someone with experience, vast knowledge of the law, and a caring way of dealing with you, is beyond necessary! I found all of that and MORE with Maria Raciti and Matt Boatman. Dealing with Maria through this process has truly been a pleasure, and quite a relief! All I had to do was let them handle it. I always felt informed, cared about, and fought for. I can’t say enough about the level of appreciation I have for their hard work and dedication to get the absolute best result possible. And that’s exactly what they did. Thank you!

My son was struck on his motorcycle by a careless driver. The injuries sustained were life threatening with a minute by minute prognosis for the first 3 days. Sub acute facilities and many doctors visits. From the moment we became clients with G&K, we were treated with dignity, concern and respect. My first point of contact was Angel Medina , he was efficient and on point with communication and gathering everything that was needed. Robert Boatman explained in detail the entire process and answered all my questions honestly and thoroughly. Finally, Maria Raciti officially represented our case and was absolutely top notch! She worked diligently on my son’s behalf , with compassion and empathy! No stone was left unturned when it came to getting the best settlement possible and so much more! The passion she exhibits for her clients is truly amazing. Maria made sure we did not stress on any part of this case so we could focus on my son’s care and aftercare. I 100% recommend this firm and if you get an opportunity to retain Maria Raciti, know you will have a warrior on your side!

After sustaining injuries in a bicycle-auto crash, I was having immense difficulties in getting the at-fault insurance company to respond or take action. A friend recommended Shannon as a reliable lawyer, so I reached out.  Shannon Clark and Maria Raciti stepped in and took fantastic care of me throughout the case. They were competent, honest, timely, and pleasant. Ethical, competent people are hard to find; Shannon and Maria impressed me on both accounts. I most certainly recommend them.

Bob Boatman and Maria Raciti are representing me in a serious GSW case. I feel so relieved to have them on my side. They are super responsive and truly care about my injuries. They’re not going to take the first and easiest settlement offer; they’re fighting for just compensation. I highly recommend anyone needing an injury attorney call Bob and Maria and the G&K injury team.
