Potential Jones Act Case
We hired Mr. Underwood for assistance with a possible Jones Act case, as I was injured on a naval research ship. It was a odd and mixed up situation and Mr. Underwood carefully reviewed all of the information and kept us well informed throughout the process. Mr. Underwood was honest and fair. I would highly recommend his services to any person requiring a personal injury attorney.
