Law Firm Reviews

It was a holiday weekend, and my investigator arrived bright and early in the morning. It felt like I was more important than the holiday. Anytime I had a question I could call and get help. As an example, when I was having trouble with the hospital about bills my attorney did a three-way call and it was over in minutes. I had been dealing with them for months.
