Gary Poole was amazing to work with. He came to me. He kept in touch every step of the way. He was able to get me a fair settlement with little hassle. I would certainly recommend him.
I first met Gary when he came to a Raleigh H.O.G. meeting to talk about the importance of carrying sufficient Uninsured/Under-insured (above the minimum) coverage on your vehicle policies. I was so impressed by his presentation, I upped mine to the max the next week. Over the nest few years, I ran into Gary at many motorcycle events where he was always out in support of riders. This past summer, an uninsured driver pulled right out in front of me while on my motorcycle causing my accident, which totaled my bike and left me with considerable property loss and surprisingly high medical bills. I knew I needed an attorney and there was no doubt as to who I would call. Gary and his assistant, Kristin were terrific right from the start and handled every aspect of my claims. It was a big relief to have their caring and professional assistance while I could concentrate on recovery. I cannot credit them enough for all they did and I’m extremely satisfied with the outcome. If you are ever unfortunate enough to need the services of a terrific attorney following an accident, I highly recommend you contact Gary
Gary did a fantastic job for me. I originally tried to handle a property damage case on my own, but quickly found that the insurance company was not going to treat me fairly. Gary made sure that I received the treatment I deserved by presenting the evidence needed for my claim and was able to get me a very good settlement without even having to file a lawsuit. In the claim world where the insurance company is going to do everything to frustrate you, and it feels like nobody listens, Gary’s personal attention to my case changed my perspective of things. He was knowledgeable, thorough, and explained everything perfectly throughout the entire process. Gary was always available to answer my questions, handled matters promptly, and responded very quickly. Amazing! I would not hesitate to recommend him to someone in need of his services.

I was injured badly in a Motorcycle accident earlier this year. Fortunately, I opened a letter from the Law Office of Gary Poole and I wasn’t disappointed with my decision. He came to my house personally during this pandemic (kept 5ft) kept a clear line of communication, very direct and helped me through my case entirely.
Gary helped us from day one. He understood how important my family’s well is to us. He did home visits because my son and grandfather had difficulty getting around after the car accident. He is very professional and caring. I say that because he has always checked on us even after we settled the case. He made sure we got the most for my family’s injuries and always tried to be fair. We recommend him because of his honesty and professionalism. We are very happy to have dealt with such a great attorney and friend!
A year after a car accident, I began receiving notices from the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Serves (CMS), itemizing my medical expenses and reminding me of “Medicare’s priority right of recovery.” Clueless, I called our family attorney. She suggested I contact another lawyer, Gary Poole, an attorney in Chapel Hill who handles automobile and motorcycle personal injury cases. This proved to be an excellent referral.
The CMS mailings provided no hint that I might be eligible for additional compensation for other expenses – past and future – or “pain and suffering.” Gary questioned me about the accident, injuries and medical treatment. (My case involved two vertebra breaks). Among complicating factors: my husband, insured under the same GEICO policy, was the driver; and I’d had previous lumbar issues and surgery. Gary explained the CMS form letter, my legal options and available evidence. He clearly knew the law, what might be expected, and the paperwork to be assembled. Gary advised that in my scenario it would be in my best financial interest for me to continue to handle the case on my own with the insurance company, but that he would help me along the way. We had numerous telephone consultations, with Gary coaching me on exactly what to say to the insurance adjuster, and when. As a result of his strategizing, in addition to some $6,000 in CMS, GEICO eventually agreed to pay more than double that amount for pain and suffering, etc.
As bodily injury cases go, this was a small and iffy case. But over the course of two months, Gary returned phone calls quickly, listened attentively, brainstormed freely, advised with authority, and emboldened my negotiations. I highly recommend him – for helping clients understand their options and receive reasonable compensation with minimal hassle. He’s definitely out to help you!
Gary is such a thoughtful person. Helped guide me to a settlement that made me happy. Forever grateful! Was honest enough to tell me I didn’t need a lawyer..took the time to tell me step by step how to settle my claim. A must have lawyer for motorcycle accidents!
For anyone looking for a hard working and caring attorney, we would refer you to Gary Poole and his firm. We had a great experience and outcome with Gary. Unfortunately, we were involved in a motorcycle accident due to someone running a red light. We both had injuries and our motorcycle was totaled. We were blessed to walk away. We had tried 2 different attorneys that didn’t meet our expectations before we found about Gary. Knowing what we know now, we could have saved time and effort and talked with him first. He and his paralegal, Kristin, personally made a visit to our home to meet with us and get things started. He gave us his personal attention and anytime we needed his advice or had questions he would personally get back with us. This was altogether different that the other firms we had started with. Gary is totally hands on in all of his cases. Gary chooses to take only a few cases each year in order to give each case his personal attention. This is so important because he knows you and your case on a firsthand basis. We loved that.
He and his staff were always professional, persistent and followed through on getting things done to help us keep moving forward. His persistence and hard work paid off in reaching an agreeable settlement for both me and my husband. We would like to save anyone needing services that time we wasted and make Gary Poole your first contact. We highly recommend his services to anyone needing representation. Thank you so much Gary and Kristin, for helping us through such a devastating time!!

I was struck and run over by a vehicle while walking across the street in a crosswalk. Our inquiries to friends convinced my wife and me that we should seek the advice of a personal injury attorney to take the burden off dealing with legal and insurance matters we were unfamiliar with. Our initial meeting with Gary was informative and we felt very comfortable with him and his long experience with personal injury cases. Throughout the process, either Gary or his paralegal Kristin were always available, and he gave excellent advice not about the whole settlement process. We would not hesitate to recommend Gary and Kristin to anyone needing the services of a personal injury attorney; this process would have been much more difficult to deal with otherwise.
Thank you so much for all your help with my recent car accident. I truly appreciate all your time and sound advice. I hope I never need your assistance again , but I will certainly refer everyone to you! Thanks again.
I was injured in a bicycle accident caused by a drunk driver. Mr. Poole was incredibly knowledgeable, hard-working, honest and fair. He is easy to talk to, readily available and follows through with commitments. I strongly recommend him.
We are so proud to have your support at the Ride for Kids this year. Thank you all for your help as we fight, together, to cure childhood brain tumors
Attorney Poole and his office were outstanding in how they handled my car accident case. They cared about my overall health and wellness and were very professional and amazing in representing me. Thank you.
On February 10th my wife was involved in an automobile accident. A young gentleman crossed over into her lane and hit her head on. She received several injuries but thankfully the seat belt and air bag did their job and prevented them from being life threating injuries. Even though the other driver was clearly at fault and received a ticket for his actions we immediately began having trouble with his insurance company. I have meet Gary Poole on numerous occasions at some of the motorcycle events around the area. I called his office and spoke with Kristen. After telling her why I was calling the first thing Kristen asked me was “how is your wife doing”. I didn’t have to wait for Gary to call us back; Kristen put him right on the phone to me. After I explained to Gary what had happened and why I was calling, his first response was “How is your wife doing”. He said he would be glad to meet with us and discuss my wife’s case. He even offered to come to the house if my wife did not feel like traveling. Gary and Kristen made us feel welcome, and you could tell after just a few minutes they were sincere and genuinely were interested in helping. After leaving Gary’s office I knew we had made the right decision. Gary explained everything to us and how he would proceed with the case. He contacted us on numerous occasions though out the process to let us know how things were going. My wife and I would highly recommend the Law Office of Gary Poole to anyone who was involved in an accident and needs some legal help.
We hired Gary to work on a case for us after my car accident. He was very diligent in getting all of my information. He researched the area where the accident had happened. He took lots of notes and was very straight forward in keeping us up to date on the newest news. He stayed by our side the whole time, which made us feel comfortable. He included us in on all his information and his notes. He is a wonderful Lawyer and we truly appreciate all the time he spent with us on our case. Thank you so much Gary I can’t ever tell you enough how much we appreciate everything that you did for us.
Thank you so much for your donation of all the great towels for the Alzheimer’s Benefit Motorcycle Ride March 31, 2019. The Bikers all loved the towels and refrigerator magnets that you sent. It is hearts like yours that make these events a success. With great gratitude. Rose
Thank you so very much for your time a few weeks ago to discuss my car accident. You were extremely helpful and generous with your time. I appreciated how clearly you communicated what I would be needing to know about car payout, medical coverage, etc. I was obviously distressed; receiving the ‘tips’ made me feel prepared and empowered. I’m glad you sent a few business cards. Although I am leaving the area, all my friends will be hearing about how helpful you were!
Just a quick note of thanks. You always send birthday and holiday greetings and I always enjoy the chance to think of you. It’s thoughtful of you to remember me. It’s great to remember how you were there when I had that terrible car accident and represented me. The settlement did help me move forward and achieve some dreams of my own. Please know that your were part of it.
My husband John had a motorcycle accident. I was recommended Gary by a friend. I called and he immediately stepped into action. He came to the hospital to meet us and talk us through everything. It was nice to have someone on our side through the difficult time. Gary went above and beyond our expectations and needs! He fought to get us everything we needed. I couldn’t recommend anyone better!
Our experience with Gary Poole was such a wonderful experience during a horrible time. I was in a hit and run motorcycle accident on April 2nd 2016 on my way home from work on a Saturday. My injuries included a broken leg and a disconnected ACL in my knee. I contacted Gary the next day to talk with him about the motorcycle accident, he came right on out to our home to talk with us. I returned to work after lots of hard work through physical therapy. We came to a settlement with the insurance company. I would highly recommend Gary to represent anyone who has had a similar experience.
Thanks so much for your help with my car accident case. You really helped relieve the stress of a complicated case and I was blown away by your generosity. I can’t thank you enough but will definitely recommend you and keep you in mind in the future.
Thanks for all you’ve done regarding my motorcycle accident case. You made this process very easy. I definitely will give your name to anyone I know who has been injured in a motorcycle accident or a car accident.
I was just recovering from a pedestrian accident when I was inundated with solicitations from legal teams. Until then, it had not occurred to me that it might be wise to have a professional go toe-to-toe with the insurance company. I called my personal attorney and she advised that if I had suffered bodily harm, I should get an honest and competent assessment of my situation from a lawyer I could trust and Gary Poole was her recommendation. Gary was sensitive to the mobility challenges I was experiencing and he brought his team to my office to meet with me. It quickly became evident that having legal representation would be in my best interest. With Gary handling my case, I could concentrate on my health while Gary’s team made sure all of my medical expenses were being covered. I am quite confident nothing was overlooked, that I was fairly compensated for all aspects of my injury, and that I could not have advocated as successfully on my own. I hope never to need his services again, but if I should victimized again, Gary is the first person I will call.
One of the best choices we made in those days following our motorcycle accident was choosing you as our attorney. As we wallowed through the ups and downs following the accident, I can’t imagine what we’d have done without your knowledge and expertise, or especially, your compassion. We sort of felt like we were losing a friend when we were finally finished with our “case.” Believe us, if ever we needed an accident attorney,(and I sincerely hope we don’t) you’d be our only choice – and – in the meantime, we will both recommend you to anyone we run into who doesn’t have the help you gave us.Again, thank you VERY much!
On behalf of all of us with the June JAMR motorcycle ride, thank you for your participation as a major sponsor for or organization this year. We appreciate your financial donation; and as always your towels were a hit with the bikers!
Never in a million years did we think we would need an accident attorney, let alone needing one twice. Years ago Gary Poole was recommended to us by a friend when our young daughter was bitten by a dog and ended up in the hospital for three days. More recently, Gary was needed by our family when our son was the victim of a hit and run motorcycle accident. In both cases Gary Poole helped us navigate the complexities of the legal processes in a most professional yet personal way. Even as educated people we were not equipped intellectually or emotionally to deal with all the details associated with fairness, equity, and wrongful behaviors. Gary did an excellent job of educating us throughout our ordeal – answering and clarifying any and all questions, confusions and concerns we had. He was always accessible and patient with us and assertive and unwavering when it came to dealing with those that may not have had our best interests at heart. Gary and his staff’s ongoing communication about our legal case allowed us to focus on our children’s medical needs and getting them well again. Without hesitation, our family would highly recommend Gary Poole to anyone in need of an accident attorney.
As a motorcycle rider I wanted an attorney to represent me in my motorcycle accident that had experience in that area. You will not find an attorney anywhere that has more knowledge and experience in motorcycle injury claims than Gary Poole! His office will do all of the negotiating on your behalf and seek the very best outcome for your specific case. Gary Poole is a man of great integrity and compassion. I highly recommend him!”
Gary Poole represented me in a recent claim arising out of an auto accident in which I was involved, but was the innocent party. Gary came to my rehab facility to begin proceedings and from there, we were able to proceed with speed and accuracy on Gary’s part and that meant an absence of stress for me. The end result of my auto accident claim was complete satisfaction on my part. Gary kept me informed and I felt comfortable leaving the entire process in his capable hands. I was impressed with his professionalism and integrity and will certainly call him in the event of any other need for legal representation in regard to accidents.
It was such a peace of mind knowing Gary and his staff were handling my motorcycle accident case. Gary and his staff are very professional, honest and hard working. I truly felt my case was given 100% care. I never had to worry about all the things that go on behind the scenes. Gary was very responsive. Gary and his paralegal Kristin are amazing and handled everything for me, which decreased a lot of stress and allowed me to have the time to heal without worrying. I felt nothing but care and compassion from them for me during a difficult time. Thank you so much for everything you did for me.
3 days after winding up in EMS with a broken leg after someone pulled out in front of me while I was on my motorcycle, my mailbox was full of offers from attorneys wanting to help. One was from Gary who we had heard of before as we had seen him at Bike Week a few years earlier handing out flyers and fridge magnets. Because of that I chose to contact Gary and am so glad that I did.
With the broken leg from my motorcycle accident, it was difficult for me to get around. No problem. Gary came to me, explained what to expect and what we needed to do in detail then told me not to worry and to leave it all to him. Which is exactly what happened. Gary and his team really looked after me. They kept me informed of progress, made sure I had all the paperwork that was needed, mentored me when I was interviewed by the insurance company and guided me through the whole process. Finally negotiating a settlement that I was more than happy with. Many thanks to Gary and his team. If you have need of an accident attorney, I highly recommend them. They did a great job for me.
From my experience Gary Poole is a highly competent attorney who offered great legal advice, and helped me to understand my various legal options after I was hit by a drunk driver while riding my motorcycle. But let me emphasize that he helped me in many other ways, including numerous visits to my home (when I was still recuperating and could not get out). He also helped complete my numerous insurance claim forms as I was seriously injured, and quite foggy from all the pain medication. And Gary helped by negotiating reductions (discounts) in my out of pocket injury-related medical expenses, and in choosing new health insurance with my financial health in mind. In short, Gary looked out for my interests – pretty much complete representation – and I am a very satisfied client!
Accidents can leave you at your most vulnerable state. You’re left trying to pick up the pieces and find someone you can trust to help you with all the issues that can arise afterwards. What you don’t want is someone who just treats you as another injury case. This is not the situation with Gary Poole. Gary takes the time to know you and understand your case and what you want. He takes the time to explain your options and helps you get what is best for you under the facts of your case. He truly is your friend and not just your attorney. You can trust him to do what is right for you. Gary is one of the best injury/accident lawyers in North Carolina. I highly recommend Gary to help you if you have had an accident.
“Gary, you were there when I needed you after my motorcycle accident. You took over all of the responsibility for my case so I could concentrate on recovering from my injuries. You started out as my attorney and ended up as a friend. I also have to mention how professional your staff was. It was just a pleasure to deal with your office, especially when I was going through such a difficult time. Anyone in a motorcycle or car accident needs you and your staff in their corner.”
“Gary, I want to express my most sincere thanks to you and your staff. Being involved in an car accident is such a difficult and straining time. It put my mind at ease to know that you and your staff were working on my case with my best interest always in mind. Thanks again for your hard work and help.”
“You have accomplished things in my motorcycle accident case that I could never have dreamed of doing on my own. Gary, I cannot give you and your staff enough praise.”
“God forbid that any of my friends are involved in a motorcycle accident like I was. But if one of my friends needed a motorcycle accident attorney, then I would tell them to definitely call Gary. Gary is honest and up front, and he has a great staff. You can tell that they really care about me. I feel like I have known Gary for ages. He is second to none.”
“We just wanted to thank you and your staff for the professional, courteous, and ethical manner in which you handled our personal injury cases. We would not hesitate to recommend your practice to others in need of personal injury counsel.”
I was very pleased with the “great” job you and your staff did on my case after I was involved in a car accident. I am very appreciative and could not have done this all on my own
Before you even told me what my settlement was going to be in my motorcycle accident case, I was already thinking that I wanted to do a thank you card that was sincere for you and your employees! When I said that you are the man, I really meant that. Gary , you went above and beyond the call of duty, which included responding to phone calls and voicemails, text messages, emails, and making phone calls that he didn’t have to make it. It is truly a blessing when someone has a passion for what they do and enjoy helping other people. Thank you Gary and best wishes forever!
I appreciate your help so much.. You are like an angel to me and my family.
Gary and his staff were wonderful in helping me through a very traumatic time in my life after my motorcycle accident. They stayed in contact with me and kept me informed of the progress of my case. I never had to question what may be going on and their care and consideration for all that I was going through was beyond words! I would highly recommend their services.
