In his career, Mr. Gierach drafted thousands and thousands of wills for Florida residents, many of which are archived in the firm’s Orlando office. Mr. Gierach’s son, John Gierach, also became an established practitioner in the Wills, Estate Planning and Probate practice to maintain his father’s legacy in these fields of expertise.
It is also noteworthy that Elroy J.
