The type of cases McAleer tries before a jury include, among others, cases involving wrongful death, catastrophic injury and also other serious injury cases. When an insurer is unreasonable in its negotiations with McAleer Law, the firm does not hesitate to file suit because it some cases that is simply what it takes to get a large insurance company’s attention.

“Charles handled a personal injury suit that was primarily for symptoms that were not simple to demonstrate to the jury. Throughout the case Charles was professional and well prepared. We won an excellent settlement for this type of case.” Cindy

“After my case was turned down by several firms, I asked Mr. McAleer to review my case. He did, and he thought he could win it. The insurance company did not offer me one dime, even at trial and after the jury was deliberating. The Gwinnett jury returned a verdict in my favor for $300,000. I was in tears. I will always be thankful to Mr. McAleer for believing in my case and in me.” R.S.
