DON'T go to GERBER- He's Incompetent!
Gerber office staff did not file court papers timely. Always late or omitted them entirely. Gerber came to court disheveled & unshaven. His Secretary has a strange strangle hold on this guy's law practice. She'll do the bare minimum while telling you how a~m~a~z~i~n~g she is. It's a disaster for your case! Gerber went to court 3 times and lost BADLY each time. Didn't make good arguments. Used the excuse that he was caring for his wife -who had a head injury - as a reason he wasn't prepared for court. The Judge admonished him about yelling, talking out of turn, not filing timely, not paying filing fees, and a several other "procedural problems" he created by not doing his job properly. I can provide PROOF of everything I'm stating here - it's all in the transcripts. Gerber should not be practicing law anymore and should retire now. His biggest interest seems to be buying more ugly art for his office - not the practice of Law. I paid him $3,900 to lose a lot of ground. Went In Pro Per and resolved it in less than 2 months. Gerber said it'd take him 2 years & wanted more money. I am going to file a complaint with the CA BAR against him - it's THAT bad. Getting a divorce is stressful enough as it is.... no one deserves additional abuse from these people adding to it. This guy is incompetent & his two office assistants (a mother & daughter team) are the most dysfunctional, bi-polar, lazy individuals I have ever encountered in a professional setting. I could forward emails that would just BLOW your mind. Unprofessional doesn't even cover it. I wish there had been someone who was willing to review this guy honestly before I hired him. I did an Internet check and also checked with the CA BAR Association BEFORE I retained him. There was nothing there. I made a HUGE mistake. You don't have to. Get a different attorney & avoid these people. If they ever were great, they aren't any more. My Name is Jeff M. and I asked my girlfriend to post this here. I can't type.
