Excellent Attorney
In the beginning I didn’t think I needed an attorney, I didn’t want to upset anyone on the outside. I thought the insurance company would take care of me and just let them handle it, but as things progressed, they weren’t following through on some things they should have. I looked for an attorney and found a good one in Bob Whitley. I wanted someone I had a good rapport with. I looked in the yellow pages and called several attorneys, and when I spoke with Bob, he offered to come to my home to meet with me, no others did that. When we met, we had a good rapport and I decided to go with the Whitley Law Firm. Their team is extremely knowledgeable in all the situations of my case, with the Workers’ Compensation, Social Security Disability and 3rd party claims. The firm walked me through it and told me what to expect and how they were going to handle it. They always returned my calls, usually within an hour. They were very accessible, which was so important to me. Once I hired Bob as my attorney, I knew I was going to be in good hands and he was going to take care of everything I would need for the rest of my life.
