Highly Recommend!
Knox Boteler helped my Mom after she and I were in a car accident. I wasn't hurt but Mom got banged up pretty good and had a lot of medical bills and some missed time from work. the other driver's insurance company gave us the run around on my property damage claim and would not tell us anything about Mom's injury claim. Finally, we had enough and hired Knox to help us. He got them to fix my car and he helped Mom with her injury claim. We were very happy with his work and we loved his legal assistants...they are wonderful! :)
