Claimed Lawyer ProfileQ&ASocial Media

The Affolter Gannon law firm is uniquely suited to fight for the rights of victims injured in accidents because Mike Gannon and Dick Affolter used to be among Vermont's premiere insurance defense lawyers. The AG team were the attorneys insurance companies called when claims were asserted against them. In fact, Mike and Dick received awards from insurance companies and were asked to instruct their adjusters how to handle legal issues. A little more than ten years ago, AG made the decision to "switch teams" and to represent injured claimants who are being treated unfairly by insurance companies. We know these companies thoroughly, inside and out. And they know us. Our close knowledge of the insurance companies allows us to better help our clients get them the money they deserve. Housed in the historic Kiln building in Essex Junction, Affolter Gannon's lawyers have combined over 100 years of practice and professional achievement coupled with accessibility and compassion - a combination that is next to impossible to find at most law firms. Mike holds Martindale Hubbell's highest rating, AV, and is listed as a Super Lawyer in New England for both personal injury on behalf of plaintiffs and for insurance law. He also holds the highest possible rating on AVVO, 10, based upon reviews of both colleagues and former clients. Mike Gannon and Dick Affolter are two of a small number of attorneys listed as Vermont Top Lawyers (in civil litigation) by Vermont Business Magazine.
