Anyone who has dealt with an insurance company knows that they are often out to pay the least amount possible, potentially settling claims for far less than they are worth. In some instances, insurance companies outright deny a completely valid claim. That is where the Gilbert Firm comes in.

When a claim has been denied, delayed, or underpaid, the Gilbert Firm advocates on behalf of those who were wronged. We have extensive experience collaborating with public adjusters as well as representing individuals in federal and state courts throughout Tennessee.
Special Education Law
“Education is perhaps the most important function of state and local governments.” Brown v. Board of Education, 347 U.S. 483 (1954).
All children are entitled to a free, appropriate public education (FAPE) in the state of Tennessee. That can prove more challenging for children with learning differences or special needs, who may be taken advantage of, bullied, neglected, or even abused. Justin Gilbert leads the team of Tennessee special education law attorneys at the firm, ensuring that you always work with a lawyer who puts the best interest of your child first. If your child is being mistreated at school, or is being denied the services, support, and accommodations he or she needs, get a committed, compassionate lawyer from the Gilbert Firm on your side. We take cases to due process hearings and, where appropriate, to state and federal courts across the state.
We have also litigated on behalf of children denied private school payment, exclusion from regular education, and unnecessary segregation in special education programs because of disabling conditions such as autism, Down syndrome, diabetes and epilepsy. If you have a legal problem, let us know how we can help.
Unfortunately, sometimes parents and, yes, even teachers who advocate for the rights of children experience retaliation. The Gilbert Firm is a recognized leader in retaliation and whistleblower cases for parents and teachers, ranging from false accusations made against parents, to terminations or discipline of teachers who advocate for their students’ needs.
