Caitlin Walton, Incredibly knowledgeable, Fights to Win!
Taking on a Multi-Billion Dollar corporation is no easy task, so you better believe I shopped around. I wasn’t feeling the confidence or professionalism I expected from some very reputable local firms. That is until I contacted Caitlin Walton at Essex Richards. We had a one on one consultation and It didn’t take long for me to know she was the right woman for the job. Caitlin has a vast understanding of ERISA law, Long-Term Disability Claims and litigation. All of which she takes very seriously. During our initial visit it was easy to see that Caitlin is passionate about her profession, has great respect for law and I thought to myself; Wow! This is not just a job to her, she takes her cases personal! That’s exactly the caliber of attorney I was looking for. As a disabled man, the legal process can be long, physically and mentally exhausting. Had I settled for someone else, the uncertainties of the process would have driven me crazy. However, through our correspondence Caitlin, along with her amazing staff, really showed genuine compassion. She understands how frustrating it can get at times, Caitlin always made time to answer my questions and concerns. When the time came for Caitlin to start digging in, it was crystal clear; she’s an unstoppable force! Her entire approach is nothing short of exceptional. My appeal was an all-out war! Caitlin gathered an abundance of supporting documentation for my case. Furthermore, she found mistake after mistake in the internal documents on the corporation I was up against. When I say the stack of documentation was as thick as the New York yellow pages, it’s an understatement! She went through it with a microscope. In all honesty, I was blown away with all she had found. When she made an argument, it was evident that her attention to detail was impeccable. Caitlin Walton, what can I say; you are a Rock Goddess with a lot of heart! And to your opponents, watch out because Caitlin’s in it for the win! You’re a Dragon Slayer who went head on with a corporate monster and you beat them down! Checkmate! I am forever grateful. Respectfully, John
