Gary Austerman is an experienced litigation lawyer who has worked primarily in the areas of medical and business disputes. Over the course of his career, Gary has successfully resolved disputes for businesses and individuals on a wide array of matters.
Gary’s counsel is sought after by individuals seeking compensation for personal injuries resulting from automobile accidents and slip and fall matters; and for representation of individuals and estates in the pursuit of wrongful death claims. Clients value Austerman for his willingness to listen, understand their business or personal concerns, and work toward a viable resolution in a timely, cost-effective manner.
As a trusted advisor to automobile dealership owners and oil and gas executives, Gary successfully resolves contract disputes, non-compete matters, disputes between business owners, insurance disputes and other commercial litigation manners. He counsels physicians and medical service providers on business and contract matters, and defends these clients against malpractice lawsuits.
Approachable and unpretentious, Austerman believes in giving each client the level of attention and effort he would expect if he were on the other side of the table. Gary rally’s for his clients as boisterously as he does his Shockers and Jayhawks when they are playing in the NCAA tournament or the KSU Wildcat football team when they score off a fumble. There is never a dull moment in the Austerman household. He and his wife Shirley dote on their kids and grandkids, who are always delighted by granddad’s shenanigans.
