Effective Mediation for your Defense Base Act Case

Our team of experienced and qualified Defense Base Act Lawyers at the Law Offices of Gillis, Mermell & Pacheco, P.A., have mediated over 2,000 injured workers’ claims.

We have obtained extremely favorable lump sum cash settlements for our clients over the past 22 years.

The fact is, insurance companies do not often offer large settlements, unless they know that the lawyer representing your DBA case has the reputation and experience to take your case all the way through trial, if needed. That is leverage!

Our Defense Base Act Clients Are Speaking

They took care of me ten thousand miles away.

Mr. Mermell, and all of his staff were so knowledgeable of what I needed to have my case completed in a timely manner.

They made sure that I was comfortable at all times dealing with my pain and injury. His staff kept me informed of everything that was going on. Even though I was still overseas the time of my injury and had surgeries there. They took care of me ten thousand miles away.

To anyone out there that is in need of good representation, please give Mr. Mermell and his staff a call ASAP.

My name is Jonathan, and I approve this statement.
