Five years ago, in November of 2016, a big red truck smashed into my 3-month-old car pushing it up over a curb causing 10k in damages. Although I was shaken up, I did not sustain much physical harm. It was suggested to me to contact Scott Palmer Law Group. This decision proved to be one of the best decisions that I have ever made.
The aforementioned accident settled out of court fairly quickly with the TX Farm Bureau Insurance. Unbelievably, 10 months later, a young man flew in front of me in an intersection totaling the same car and sending me to the hospital in an ambulance! This wreck caused me 20k in medical bills and permanent bodily injuries. Allstate Insurance wanted to give me 8k for the entire settlement! I think the phrase goes something like, “I’ll see you in court!”. Four years and four months later, we did just that. My court case was recently heard on November 15th, 2021.
The purpose of this review is to sing the praises of the man who represented me, Mr. Grant Gerleman from Scott Palmer Law. After the trial was over, on the trip back home to the Austin area from the courthouse north of Dallas, a myriad of affectionate accolades and adjectives were flying from my heart out of my mouth about this Grant person. Even though I had met Grant during the deposition nearly two years ago, this was the first time I had seen him in action representing me in court. While the jury was out deliberating, I wrote Grant a note which said something like, ‘Regardless of the outcome, you are doing an absolutely fabulous job’ and that I appreciated him. Well, I am pleased to report that the outcome was gloriously in my favor.
For the entirety of our time in court, Mr. Gerleman was cool, calm, and collected. He was amazingly prepared, articulate, strategic, and smart. He moved and spoke with such ease and confidence, but was unassuming and humble with his delivery. His interaction with me was kind, sweet, and compassionate. I believe there was no way the members of the jury could dismiss or not believe every word he spoke. There is no doubt in my mind that Grant Gerleman lives and breathes to help people. I truly believe he is divinely gifted in so many areas of his being. I am extremely blessed to have had him not only represent me in court but to be the catalyst in getting me my due justice.
The last time I spoke to Mr. Palmer, I thanked him for being excellent. In any situation with a leader or head of a group, company, church, family, etc. everything flows from the top. Everyone that I had dealings with at this law group was always striving for excellence which of course, comes down from their leader, Scott Palmer. I sadly say that I hope I never need Scott, Grant, Norma, Shelly, and the rest of the team at this law group again because I never want to have another accident.
