we won my case.
I called Michael Morse office and the lady that took my call, told me after I explained that I did not get an injury but my truck was damage. She stated that, " Mike takes injuries only." But when I consulted Mike he told me just what to do. And my case was settled the same day. He is a very smart Lawyer. I will tell all my family about how Mike help me win my case.
