We had a very successful outcome for our legal case that allowed us to stabilize our family's life after a brain injury. Yet it was the process of the case that was as important to us, because we had so much to manage medically, emotionally, and mentally, during this challenging time. Barry Nace and his excellent team didn't involve us unless they needed our attention, allowing us to place our focus where it was required, in our healing. Also, they spent time answering our questions, no matter how trivial, since we had never used a lawyer except in the creation of our wills. We felt prepared for the case, and informed of our options, but yet not burdened by too much information. We were given adequate preparation for the next steps, but we were not overwhelmed by a multitude of responsibilities. As part of their client care, we were able to help protect our children and other family members from the rigors of an adversarial environment, and to go on with our lives instead of being involved in legal matters.
Frankly, it was Nace's straight talk that brought us to the firm. Do not be alarmed by his sometimes gruff demeanor. He cuts to the chase, and helps prepare you for the underlying issues that may surface. Barry is balanced by his son Chris, whose compassionate response and awareness keeps clients optimistic through the inevitable ups and downs of this long, convoluted process.
I would recommend Nace without hesitation, as he has the directness and savvy that you want on your side, and because this organization has the expertise and experience that makes a level playing field out of the surprises and biases of the legal system.
