Auto Accident/Personal Injury
Laura worked with us on automobile insurance issues stemming from an automobile accident. She was attentive to all of needs and kept us informed on all issues. She was able to get the matter settled in a timely fashion and followed up with us after completing our case. She was personable and caring and I would highly recommend her.
