When a local police department confronted and shot to death a wheelchair-bound man during a domestic disturbance, the police department felt its officers were justified in shooting the man twice in the chest and once in the stomach. The town brought in their expert who supported the inconceivable findings of the police department. However, not only did the trial testimony of G&G's expert completely and utterly refute the testimony of the expert for the police department, but the case settled immediately thereafter, stopping the trial instantly.

This case involved documentation and examination by a police department's crime lab of firearms found in a body of water. The firearms pulled from the river bed were firearms belonging to a client of the firm (defendant) that retained G&G, as well as a machine gun that could not be traced to the defendant, except for casings, which the police allegedly discovered in the defendant's car, supposedly linking the weapon to the defendant. At the request of counsel, G&G examined the evidence and determined that the police reports included fabricated evidence. Numerous misrepresentations were found in the reports of the prosecution's ballistics expert, and were fortunately uncovered by G&G. G&G's trial testimony introduced evidence to the jury proving conclusively that the casings were not at all from the subject machine gun, resulting in all firearms charges being dropped, including a possible 15 year sentence for unlawful possession of a machine gun.

G&G Firearms Experts was hired to investigate the possibility of a mechanical failure of a handgun, which was accidently discharged, resulting in the shooting of an observer. This investigation resulted in G&G' expert recommendation that the firearm in question was not faulty in its operation. After intensive questioning of the shooter, G&G identified that insufficient firearms training by a certified firearms instrutor was the reason for the accidental shooting by the tortious defendant. Based on G&G's findings, the client-insurance compnay pursued a contribution claim against the firearms training school, which netted a multiple six-figure amount, offsetting significantly its losses paid for the underyling wrongful shooting by its insured.
