    I endorse this lawyer. If you have been hurt in an accident, you need to have a formidable advocate on your side. You need to have someone that not only understands insurance carrier's tactics, but also an attorney that can provide you and your family with the compassion that you need during this most difficult time. Mr. Epstein is excellent at what he does.
