John began working on my case after dead end negotations with the insurance adjuster over my injuries. He filed suit, and discovered a number of problems about the driver's conduct in causing the wreck. He obtained many times more than was ever previously offered and pushed the case to the brink of trial before getting the right settlement for me.
A few years ago my car was hit by an acquaintance of a friend who left the scene of the accident and subsequently denied any wrongdoing. After fruitless efforts to confront the acquaintance myself and demand payment to repair the car, I hired John Houghton. Over the course of a few weeks, John tracked the individual down, sought payment for the repairs (including rental car fees) and had the money quickly in my hands. Throughout the ordeal, John handled the work and correspondence professionally, with confidence and integrity, and kept me informed every step of the way.
I was involved in a car accident that resulted injuries and an overnight stay in the Hospital. To compound the already extreme stress and anxiety that resulted from my injuries, my health insurance provider subrogated my claim and refused to pay the in-network hospital. John took on both my health insurance company and the hospital (I was billed over $10,000 despite their network status with my insurance company) and, with a resolved focus and determination, settled all matters within weeks of his notification.
