Gerard S. Rath works assiduously with insurance adjusters and trial defense teams to develop strategies and problem solve in litigation and on appeal. Inquisitive and quick-thinking, Gerard is adept at challenging statements and actions of the opposition.

Gerard applies his detail-oriented and disciplined character strengths procured during his time in the military to meticulously assess the liability of a claim. Using the firm’s unique and valuable institutional knowledge on damages, he approaches complex matters with a keen eye for attempts to inflate claims to increase awards.

His comprehensive evaluation of cases identifies key areas where plaintiffs are not being forthright, or their claim is without valid foundation. Gerard passionately defends clients, addressing underlying issues and revealing narrative motives by plaintiffs to recover beyond claims damages.

Although a New Yorker for more than two decades, Gerard prides himself on his Midwest sensibilities. His approachable and amiable disposition facilitates open communication and develops a comfortable rapport with clients.
