This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Excellent attorney, represented my child in medical malpractice
Great and wonderful service. They were there when we needed them. Challenge was big but me and my daughter made it through with their help. My baby was hurt at birth in her arm from medical malpractice. Nobody else would take this case. I could not have asked for a better law firm. If someone asked me for a recommendation for a lawyer they would be my number one choice.
