A Lawyer Who Cares
I was injured in a wreck several years ago. I wanted to settle the case for a few thousand dollars. My mother told me to talk with Ken Guin. He had successfully represented her in a Social Security case. I was still hurting from the wreck. Ken told me my job was to get well as possible and his job was to look out for my legal rights. When it was all said and done Ken settled the case for the insurance limits - $100,000! He is patient, kind and knows his stuff.
