great working with someone who really cares
Mr Conlan stayed in touch with me through the whole process.Whenever i had a problem all i had to do was call,no matter how busy he was he always had time for me.He would call just to ask how i was feeling.I felt like i was important and that matters when you work your hardest for someone and you get hurt and they dont care.This man was marvelous and any one that has him as a lawyer you dont have to worry he will work hard for you.THANK YOU MARTIN LLC.and thank you Joseph Conlan.

This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
I hired Joseph with confidence after discussing my case but sadly my trust was misplaced. The insurance company missed the deadline to respond to my claim, I was not paid a penny for over 6 months, then they offered a settlement for much less then I would be paid had I worked. My attorney did not fight for me and seemed to be on the opposing side. I could never get in touch with him, the secretary was rude to me, I came for deposition and no one notified him that I was there for 35 minutes after they said they did. Now I am told I can either go back to work like nothing happened and not be compensated or if I settle I have to find new employment. He claims I am not entitled to a 20%penalty because the insurance company denied my claim. They want to settle which means my claim is legitimate and I should've been receiving payment 3 weeks after my injury Joseph says this is legal and they can do what they want. True they can deny the claim however they missed the deadline which means a penalty should be imposed. The denial was a tactic to avoid paying. My credit is ruined, bills are piled up, my children and I have suffered tremendously and on top of that they wouldn't even pay for my prescription from the doctor. They cancelled my health insurance and I will have to pay a penalty at income tax and now I'm out of a job. I wish I had hired someone else because CLEARLY I'm on my own!
