Deedee Gasch has over a decade of experience litigating catastrophic claims involving serious injury or death.  While Deedee’s practice is primarily focused on the defense of  trucking and commercial vehicle accidents, premises liability, and medical malpractice, Deedee has a wide range of civil litigation experience.  Deedee is an energetic and passionate trial attorney who maintains an AV rating with Martindale-Hubbell, a prestigious peer review rating that recognizes attorneys who have reached high levels of skill and integrity.

Deedee spent approximately half of her career representing injured plaintiffs before returning to her first love of civil litigation defense work.  Her experience on both sides of a case uniquely situates her in negotiations and at trial if settlement is not possible.  While Deedee loves jury trials, her goal is to always resolve a case with minimal costs and exposure to her clients.

Deedee offers 24-7 catastrophic claims response.  As part of this service, Deedee has extensive experience on the scenes of claims involving serious injury or death.  Deedee also offers on-site and in-house training to her clients in risk management and preventing litigation.

Deedee is a third generation Tar Heel and attorney, following in the footsteps of her grandfather, a North Carolina Resident Superior Court Judge (deceased), and her father, a career trial lawyer.  She has dual degrees in Journalism and Political Science and earned her law degree cum laude from Florida Coastal School of Law in Jacksonville, Florida, where she attended on a prestigious merit based scholarship.  She is licensed to practice law in both North Carolina and Florida.  While Deedee is proud of her professional accomplishments, the two little boys who call her mom are her greatest pride.
