Car Accident
My husband and I hired Steven Van Grack to handle a car accident claim. We were extremely pleased with the work he and his paralegal provided and the results of their professional service for a positive outcome. Mr. Van Grack was very thorough and we were grateful to have him represent us.

Excellent Honest Lawyer - Knows his stuff
Excellent honest lawyer who knows his stuff. He helped us with a personal injury claim from an auto accident. He did a great job in negotiating with the insurance company. He is very patient and explains things in simple terms. I've used a lot of lawyers in the past and he is the best. He was very honest about the financial split in the settlement.
