  • Matthew West Kindel

    Tony works hard for those who can no longer work. He is dedicated to obtaining benefits for those hard-working Americans that, through no fault of their own, have suffered from injury or other malady and can no longer dedicate themselves to providing an income to meet they or their families' needs. It is with great pleasure that I endorse an individual who works at such a noble task.
