​GRG Accolades

GRG takes complicated settlement processes and simplifies them for the parties involved in the dispute. In one instance, Garretson was instrumental in helping us to design a settlement procedure involving claims of a decedent and her family, Medicaid liens, plus probate and minor settlement coordination; while tailoring the program within our risk management protocols which lead to better settlement results for the parties. These efforts were not only accomplished with a high level of expertise, but also with compassion.
– Jane R. Weyer, Claim Manager

“Garretson makes it easy. The services of his firm allow me to take a complicated, time-consuming issue off my plate — and I’m protected from liability at the same time. I have a settlement resource who I always trust to do the right thing.”
– Andrew Finkelstein, Esq.

“Matt Garretson is committed to seeing a settlement through to the end, and it works to my benefit and the benefit of my client. His firm is fast, thorough and knowledgeable. They’ve carved out quite a niche for themselves in the settlement world.”

“The settlement techniques utilized in the instant litigation may provide a model for handling Medicare and Medicaid in future mass actions on a uniform, national basis.”

“Hiring the Garretson Group to negotiate my clients’ Medicare and Medicaid liens is one of the best decisions I have ever made.

Having the Garretson Group on your side is the only thing that makes sense when it comes to reimbursement issues.”
– Tracey L. Dellacona, RN, MBA, Attorney at Law

“Many lawyers hadn’t created a method to determine if the payment system will kick clients off government benefits. [Garretson] provides protection to the claimant and protection for the lawyer – benefits are preserved for claimants, and lawyers are protected from professional liability for failing to inform their clients about the impact of settlement.”
