About Me

It's not about me. It's about you. You are hurt. Your car is wrecked. You are missing work. You have medical bills you can't pay. You still need medical care but the insurance company is giving you the runaround. The adjuster is telling you what you can and cannot do, but you don't know if they are being honest.

You need someone to help you level the playing field.

I can help you force the insurance company to give you what you deserve.
