Tell us a little bit about your practice and what makes it unique.

We are a small law firm in the Phoenix Metro area with a wide variety of practice areas. Mr. Gerity focuses on estate planning, elder law, ALTCS/Medicaid planning, bankruptcy, business law, and intellectual property. We are huge proponents of developing a relationship with our clients, and being their legal resource for them, their families and their business for the rest of their lives, and even beyond.

What is most challenging about your area(s) of expertise?

We find that many people do not get around to planning their estate until it is too late. We are then stuck trying to clean up the spilt milk, so to speak, and that creates many challenges and expenses that could have been avoided with proper estate planning in advance.

What other interests do you have?

I am a singer in a rock cover band. I am also a licensed EMT, serving as a volunteer for the Phoenix Fire Department.
