How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)

My experience in business and the fact that I have an accounting degree helps me represent my clients in divorces where a business or real estate is involved. I am very familiar with financial statements and adept at cross examining forensic accountant witnesses.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

I do not rely upon clients to educate themselves. I explain clearly and in detail the issues that pertain to a case so the client can understand the issue and can make an informed decision when necessary.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

I always review documents that are tendered to me, often as part of a free consultation.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

On occasion, I have been hired as an advisor to a pro se party and charge a per-hour fee for consultation or document preparation.

Gerard A. Fierro

I began my legal career working for the multinational law firm LeBoeuf, Lamb, Leiby & McCrae, assisting the firm in representing major corporate clients. Later, I honed my trial and litigation skill as an associate attorney of John S. Riley & Associates.

I have four children of my own. Caring for my children gives me great insight to the world of parenting to help my clients. I have a great deal of experience handling litigated matters, and my past trial skills in civil litigation give me an advantage of many other lawyers without a similar experience.

I am hard-working, intelligent and dedicated to getting my clients the results they deserve. I believe in working harder, being better-prepared and being smarter than my adversary.

Personal interests:

I enjoy golf, playing with my four children and weekend getaways to Palm Springs with my wife.
