The level of detail and proficiency of Mr. Sabin Gherdan was unparalleled by being fast, proficient and executed with utmost care for our client. I can only recommend G&A with the highest level on this case and will be happy to refer them in the future to any of my colleagues and clients.
It was quite difficult and stressful to be involved in my first lawsuit case ever. But I am pleased happy that I had the chance to work with Sabin Gherdan and his associates, who helped me get through this, and together we managed to get the final result we were looking for.
Sometimes in sports happens, you need help from an attorney. Sabin helped me with my case from the beginning, and I was more than happy to work with him. He showed me how important it is to have a great attorney in this business.
When I had problems with my contract, Sabin Gherdan was the one to suport me. It was a long and tough process for me.But I was fortunate to have him and his team on my side. I will always be thankful for the commitment, hard work, and great strategy to win the case. Also, the way they supported me was amazing throughout the process. I couldn’t choose a better “Point Guard” to help me win this one!
