  • Margaret E. Machaiek

    As an associate in Attorney Wholey Briggs's firm, I have witnessed first-hand the level of care and skill she brings to each client's legal matter. Her experience as both an attorney and as a registered nurse allows her to bring a perspective to medical malpractice and personal injury cases that is truly unique in the legal community. In every case, she is determined to achieve the best possible outcome for her client. I wholeheartedly endorse Attorney Wholey Briggs.
