  • Dirk J. Hamel

    I endorse this lawyer. I have had several cases with Coreen over the years and I have seen her give presentations at workers' compensation seminars. Coreen is smart, energetic and dedicated to doing an excellent job for her clients. Coreen has a special gift for fighting as hard as possible while at the same time being as pleasant as possible. I think this leads to good results for her clients.
