The Gary Brustin Difference

Many other attorneys will handle a limited number of bicycle cases. The majority of their other cases will be general personal injury matters. Only a select few will dedicate their careers to the protection of injured cyclists.

Gary is a cycling litigation specialist. He handles no other cases. By focusing on this single branch of law, he has earned the necessary experience to win even the most complex and challenging cases.

Gary handles each case personally. As a client, you will have his direct cell phone number. When you call, email or text, he responds personally. Not another lawyer, paralegal or secretary. You get his personal attention & expertise on a “one to one” level from the beginning of the case until the end.

  • How long should I wait until considering a settlement?
  • Who will pay my medical expenses?
  • Will I be compensated for lost earnings?
  • Will my bike and accessories be replaced?
  • What is the estimated value of my case?
  • How much are the fees and costs?
