Personal injury
This being my 1st car accident and being young I took it to Google and searched for the best rated lawyer for personal injury and found Mr. James Murphy. The reviews were correct he is great at what he does and even though I didn't have a chance to see him due to his busy schedule I was always able to communicate with his assistants if I had any questions and had them resolved. The process was really simple.
