Posted by Attorney who needed legal advice
I am an attorney. I do not, however, practice in insurance law.
I needed help understanding a complicated insurance policy and employment situation. I was impressed with the number of awards Mr. Hauer had received so I set up an initial consultation.
I had high expectations for an attorney of his caliber. He exceeded my expectations, which is difficult to do. He took my first call right away. He met with me the next day. I had subsequent questions on two more occasions and both times he again took my calls immediately. He explained my legal situation thoroughly.
Mr. Hauer had a comfortable office that lacked the pretense that lawyers as recognized as he is usually have. I felt comfortable in my jeans and sweatshirt. He was easy to talk to and seemed to be a genuine, caring person.
What I most appreciated, however, was his honesty. After explaining my situation, he told me that I didn't need to hire him now. He added that if I had problems, I could hire him for an appeal. I still offered to pay him and he refused to accept my money.
I will refer potential clients to him without reservation. He is a credit to the legal profession.
