Theodore Roosevelt once said, "Speak softly and carry a big stick."  At the Law Offices of Theresa Gerlach, we understand the importance of negotiation and cooperation in resolving our clients’ issues as quickly and fairly as possible.  But sometimes your best interests are served only by actively pursuing them in court.  You may need us to "speak softly" to produce the best result for you, or you may need a "big stick" to advocate for you in court.  Depending on what your case requires, Theresa Gerlach, Bill Markert, and the staff at our firm will protect, promote, and guide you through the process.
