Very detailed attorney!
Marc and his assistants have kept me well-informed of my case status since the very day I've obtained their services. I've had a lot of worries and anxiety since I was injured and everytime I have a concern, they reply back expediently by phone, text, etc. I feel much better after every contact with them. They always make me feel important. His assistants, Nichola, Renee and Andrea are extremely nice and pleasant to talk to, most importantly, Very Professional! Highly recommended!!! Thank you so much!!
