It’s been nearly 26 years since Gloria Seidule, Esq., began helping people. Throughout her career as an attorney, it’s been her goal to help those who’ve been injured or seriously hurt. And today, in her boutique firm in Stuart, she’s still at it, going up against some of the biggest corporations, hospitals and institutions with one simple goal.
“It’s about finding the truth,” said Seidule. “My clients are people who simply want justice for what has happened to them, they want the person or company to take responsibility for what they’ve done.”
That’s where Seidule gives everything she’s got and more. And while she may be small, she’s also quite mighty. Her extensive experience, knowledge and resources allow her not only to present an exceptional case, but also to win time and time again. Her highly regarded reputation in the courtroom and among her peers is just another reason folks along the Treasure Coast turn to her when they need help. And while she’s won several highly publicized cases throughout her career, her ultimate satisfaction comes when her client’s suffering is vindicated. Because in the end, that’s what it’s all about.
Now, if you’ve been injured at the fault of someone else, you may believe that you need one of those gigantic law firms to represent you. But Seidule offers something those big firms don’t — one-on-one, face-to-face attention. The kind of attention that means you won’t have to tell your story or trust your case to an assistant or a paralegal, only to Seidule herself. The kind of attention that begins the moment you walk through her door, continues throughout the case and beyond. Even when a case goes on for a long period of time, which can happen when large amounts of money and big corporations are involved, Seidule is there to ensure it all goes smoothly.
But there’s even more about Seidule that sets her apart from the rest. “I am very pragmatic and I never give up,” she explained. Her compassion for people and her passion about what she does come through when you speak with her.
“I have an open-door policy here — my clients know I am here to talk, to listen and to be by their side when they need me,” she stated.
There’s also the fact that she serves as an advocate for children who’ve been neglected or abused. Seidule provides pro-bono services in these cases because it’s a cause that she so strongly believes in. As a devoted mother, the plight of any child who’s been mistreated is to her heart.
Seidule’s firm, GloriaLaw, is located at 2400 SE Federal Highway, Suite 300, in Stuart. She serves clients in personal injury, medical malpractice, auto accident and child abuse and neglect cases in Martin and St. Lucie counties.
