Car accident
We were extremely fortunate to have retained the services of the Wruck Law Offices. We are so thankful with how the lawyers and staff handled our case. The folks at Wruck and Paupore were always pleasant and helpful in all their phone calls and letters. It was always a pleasure to get their calls. They explained things very well and made us feel valued and comfortable as we were going through the entire ordeal with our recovery from injuries from the incident which disrupted our lives against our will. We were especially pleased with their tenacious pursuit of the goal of full recovery which was far greater than we could have imagined. We were impressed with the short amount of time it took to settle the case (only a year and a half) which we were afraid would take much longer and involve lengthy court hearings. It was all done out of court and negotiated quickly. Yet we were able to get more than we would have had they had to go to court for us. What we had to go through with the losses, not only financially, but physically and emotionally that we sustained was made a lot more palatable having such a good law team walking through the journey with us. So, we say, thank you, thank you, thank you! to the Wruck Paupore law office! You all did a fantastic job and we will surely not be shy in talking about our high regards for your company. We recommend your practice to anyone your who need help with obtaining justice where justice is due.

From start to finish, Wruck Paupore PC Law were the best! Knowledgeable and straightforward, they explained the process, start to finish, and gave guidance while allowing us to determine the best course to action to take. We would highly recommend them and would certainly use them again.

Considerate
Don and his team were very considerate of the pain and challenges I was going through. They never pushed for anything, and were always allowing me to pace the process as fast as I wanted it to be. Don constantly kept me up to date on the progress of the case, and always followed up my personal health as well. It is difficult to describe what a person goes through in some of these difficult situation, but one thing for sure, they made it as painless as possible. We received a settlement. Thank you Don and the team!

Wonderful Experience
I can't say enough about Don Wruck and the staff at Wruck Paupore PC Law Offices. When we were in our accident we were already very shaken and confused and in pain. Don and his staff took over with a gentle hand and took care of everything. Once we submitted all of the requested paperwork they handled everything. It took a little over a year to settle our case but they got us a much larger settlement than we ever imagined. Nicole and Susan were wonderful to work with and were always available to answer any questions we had. I would highly recommend this firm, they are truly caring people.

Simply the Best
Keep in mind, there are hundreds of attorneys out here and choosing one can be stressful and devastating if you choose the wrong one. This is why I would like to take this time to share my experience with Donald Wruck, who handled my case. Mr. Wruck took my case with ease. His office took immediate action when I hired them. I received information in a matter of days from when I hired them. The information was easy to understand and had step by step instruction as to how and what is needed from me. The professionalism was awesome. If I had questions, I could contact Mr. Wruck's office and if his office didn't have an answer, Mr. Wruck would get back with me in a short time. The office staff was amazing as well. They all worked together smoothly and had the upmost respect and patience for their clients. I never had to hire an attorney before and I made the right choice when I hired Donald Wruck and his team. If I would grade Mr. Wruck's team, I would definitely give his team the highest grade possible. I truly had no doubt that they had my best interest in mind. I highly recommend Donald Wruck partners and team. Have no doubt, they will make you feel at ease and do their absolute best for you just as they did for me. I have no regrets.

The lawyer you pick does make a difference!
I was injured in a car accident in Indiana and suffered a concussion. The first lawyer I hired got a top offer of only $3000. I knew that this was not fair and switched to Don Wruck at Wruck Paupore, who was referred by a friend. Don knew how to handle a concussion case and how to deal with an insurance company that was being unreasonable. In January 2019, my case was settled for just under $1 million, and now no longer have to worry about my future. Wruck Paupore made all of the difference. Thank you, thank you!!

Beyond Satisfied
I would recommend Don Wruck and his caring staff to anyone who has been in a car accident. I got boxes full of attorneys brochures and I chose Don Wruck and could not be more pleased with what Don and his great people have done for me and my family during a very trying time in my life I would not recommend State Farm for a Insurance company they don't care about there customers and made my case much harder than it needed to be and they tried EVERYTHING to make me look like I didn't have injuries from the accident and without the help of Don and his staff I would be in great debt with medical bills I cant Thank Don and his staff enough for all they have done for me and for not throwing in the towel when I wanted to they kept fighting for me it took over 5 years but they always had my back I would like to personally thank Netta Flowers, Nicole Florek, and all the other support staff for the last 5 plus years you all stood by me and fought a tuff fight there will never be enough words to Express my thanks to all of you

Extremely Satisfied!
Attorney Wruck did an amazing job in settling my personal injury case. His knowledge and experience specific to semi truck accidents made all of the difference in the outcome of my case; the settlement exceeded my expectations! The staff at his firm was helpful, responsive and caring during a difficult time following a life-altering experience. I highly recommend Attorney Wruck and his firm.

Out-of-state Personal Injury
I live in California, but was injured in Indiana while passing through the state. Don and his team of professionals handled everything in my case. I was treated fairly, the process and all options were explained thoroughly to me. The team at Wruck-Paupore communicated with me in timely fashion via phone and email. I was able to go on with my life with very minimal interruption and inconvenience. I only had to return to Indiana once during the legal process. I would definitely suggest Don Wruck if you are in need of a consultation or representation.

Amazing lawyer
I have absolutely nothing but good things to say about Mr Wruck and his firm. It took a while but I got the maximum amount for my settlement and I never worried about not understanding anything because he did a great job explaining everything.

Knowledgeable, patient and caring!
After my car accident, I was inundated with marketing from personal injury attorneys. It was obvious that most of them were "ambulance chasers". But the information I received from Wruck Paupore PC was different. It instantly answered a lot of my questions plus questions I didn't think to ask. During the first call, after asking about my injuries and being shocked that my family doctor did not send me to any specialists, Mr. Wruck told me what I needed to do. He did not care if I went to another attorney, he only cared about my health. I am so glad I listened. I was hit by a government vehicle and suing the government is a frustrating process. Throughout my case Mr. Wruck and his staff have been knowledgeable, patient and extremely caring. Because of Mr. Wruck's knowledge of Indiana laws on suing the government, my medical bills are paid and I still have money in the bank.

Fantastic firm in a difficult situation
My wife was struck by a semi on I-65. The other insurncae compny tried to blame her, claiming that she stopped suddenly. She spent 3 weeks in the hospital and we had more than $100k in bills. I was going to lose my job. We hired Wruck Paupore and from that moment, the only thing we had to do was get my wife better. Their staff took care of everything. All of the bills have been paid and she has money for care she needs for the rest of her life. I cannot say enough about how this firm is built from top to bottom to handle large dollar injury cases. Thank you.

Great Lawyer
He was honest and did a great job with our case. He also helped handle some large medical bills and even discounted his going rate. The insurance company has been slow to pay which is painful but has nothing to do with Mr. Wruck or anyone working at the law firm since everything was prepared and turned in on time.

Wruck Paupore settled my case without going to court
I started off my case with another lawyer, but switched to Don Wruck and Wruck Paupore after the first firm did not keep in touch with me. Wruck Paupore was fantastic. I was informed every step of the way and did all of the work, and got my case settled.
