Highly Recommended
I was in an auto accident and unsure what to do next. A quick phone call and meeting put my mind at ease. I was consistently kept in the loop on everything that was going on and what I could expect next. All of my questions were promptly answered and I had no scheduling issues with face to face meetings. The accident was a very troubling time for me both emotionally and financially and I felt reassured that Michael Bruno and his staff were genuinely concerned and were on my team. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone facing the same situation.
