“Thank you for all the hard work you performed on our fire loss. Your negotiating skills and knowledge of insurance claims was beyond expectations.
I highly recommend anyone dealing with an insurance company to use you. With the altered insurance contracts, wrongly written check and the way the insurance company basically ignored us we would have been “up a creek” without you.”
“When I originally began looking for an insurance consultant to handle our claim, I was drawn to GCG due to your years of experience and local knowledge; it was the correct selection. Without your efforts my family would not have benefitted as well.”
The Alvarez Family
“Mr. Garrett’s firm, Garrett Claims Group, had the resources, reputation, enormous amount of detail, and professionalism to properly evaluate our claims. His comprehensive reports and persistent negotiating skills obtained our cultural center excellent insurance settlements. Without his involvement we would have never accomplished such just and equitable proceeds to restore our facility. We would not have known where to begin in separating the damages or have knowledge of our entitlements.
“I just wanted to send a little note with a great BIG thank you for all that you both did for me. May God richly bless you for your professionalism, expertise, and kindness during the past 17 months. Your help in answering my questions and keep me abreast of everything were exemplary.”

You and your staff are professional, dependable and always give me 110% when handing a claim.”
“We were not getting anywhere with the case until Mr. Garrett was selected. He was kind, honest and helped me to understand sinkholes. He also located and pointed out problems that I never saw. The result was that I got the settlement that I should have gotten. Without him, that would not have been possible.”
“It is our pleasure to recommend Mr. Patrick H. Garrett with Garrett Claims Group. We retained his firm to represent us in negotiations with our insurance company when our property at 701 W. Bay St. in Tampa, Florida burned in April of 2007. Mr. Garrett acted professionally, worked in a timely matter, and demonstrated an impressive working knowledge of insurance claims and benefits. He was an effective and efficient liaison with the insurance company, and we believe maximized policy benefits due us.
Thanks to Mr. Garrett, we were able to rebuild our beautiful historic property that was damaged, and restore it to its’ former elegance. Though we hope this never happens again, we would not hesitate to call for Mr. Garrett’s services.”

If we had not engaged Mr. Garrett’s services we would have settled for substantially less regarding our two claims.
