About Philip Gerth, Attorney at Law
Philip Gerth passed the Ohio bar in 1998. Since then he has focused on federal administrative law, debt defense, bankruptcy, tort litigation and First Amendment law. He is a 1998 graduate of The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law and a 1995 graduate of Evangel University in Springfield, Missouri.
Phil's philosophy is a little different. First, a lawsuit is not always the solution. Phil listens to his clients enough to find out what they need - can their claim be handled behind the scenes first? If they need to file suit, he can, but he likes to consider all the possibilities first.
Second, Phil doesn't believe in taking cases that aren't legitimate.
Third, Phil likes to inform his clients of the "free option," that is, ways that clients can handle their problems without paying for an attorney. Although Phil's clients don't often take the "free option," it makes for a more informed client.
Finally, Phil is always willing to pray with any client about their problem.
Many people wait until things are out of control before they call a lawyer. Often, things are easily solved in the beginning when a lawyer is involved. Hopefully, Phil can assist you, your business, or your organization.
