Amazing lawyer and woman
I was in a terrible car accident a year ago. Steve Seidman and Melanie Fairman handled my case. My husband and I had no idea what to do. Both Melanie and Steve were just absolutely amazing. They were professional and incredibly knowledgeable. Most importantly they truly cared. They were invested in not only my case but my recovery as well. Melanie stayed in constant contact with me. She filled me in on everything going on and never spoke down to me. She also said things in a way I would understand. Honest but kind. It made me feel safe and comfortable letting her handle everything while I got to focus on my recovery. She was successful with my case. She even spent time on the phone with me helping me fill out paperwork that was confusing with law jargon. This was an overwhelmingly great experience with a spectacular group of people. I would recommend them to anyone in need of assistance. They know the law and how to explain it to their clients in order for them to be involved and understand what is going on.
