"He’s a fearless leader who faces the most challenging circumstances head on – unafraid, and to the point. Likewise, he is a tremendously compassionate man, who devotes an inordinate amount of time to his philanthropic causes – and helping entrepreneurs, like me. Gerry’s mantra (and company slogan) is “Entrepreneurs advising entrepreneurs.” In my experience, he epitomizes every aspect of that – looking at situations from a business perspective first; then integrating the necessary legal facets. Gerry is the real deal."

"Gerry has been a business associate for 25 years. I have worked with him on private financings, IPOs, acquisitions, divestitures and sat with him in numerous Board Meetings. He is not a typical lawyer but more a business advisor with the legalities as a plus. His maturity and experience is vividly displayed when called on for business and legal advice. My firm Tunstall Consulting has helped 34 companies go through the public offering process with first tier underwriters since its inception in 1981 as well as hundreds of private company financings. I have sat on 8 public boards."
