He represented a five-year-old boy who was injured in an intersection car accident. The driver of the boy’s car was uninsured, unlicensed, on anti-depressant medication, and had made a left turn in front of oncoming traffic. Despite the foregoing, he sued the city and proved that the intersection was dangerous. He recovered $3.5 million for the boy and his family. Since then, he has gone on to recover over nine figures in settlements and verdicts for his clients. He has been recognized by his peers as a Super Lawyer since 2014 to the present for his tireless energy and commitment to his clients.

Renowned trial lawyer Gerry Spence reflects on justice in a powerful personal retrospective.
“This is a place where you come to be a human. What's amazing aboout Gerry is that he's one of the most famous trial lawyers in America but he doesn't want people to copy his arguments or to copy how he talks or dresses.”
“When you go to law school they teach you how to be a lawyer but they don't teach you how to care. Here's the best part of GSM. you will leave different. Not a different person, but a different lawyer.”
“The magic and the transformation that takes place here that I find remarkable is that by becoming better human beings we become better lawyers; by digging deep into ourselves we're better able to sense what may be holding our clients back and we can get at the real story.”
