He is absolutely the best and I could not ask for more. This was a little claim and I was not treated very good from the insurance company while trying to handle things myself and they were not doing what they were supposed to do so I was referred to him by my doctor. From the beginning him and his team were great and understanding. They treated me with respect and showed me that it was about me being happy not about the money or anything else. He didn't let me settle for a very low offer cause he knew the injury wasn't fixed right and sent me to get it fixed before we did anything else. I am happy to say my injury is 80% better and he made sure they paid to fix it and I received everything I deserved. The settlement was more than I ever thought it would be! Even though they still are not getting a whole lot from my case he didn't hesitate to work on it as if it was a huge case and he was happy with the results cause I was. He really is about the happiness of his clients and what we deserve and I can't say enough good things about this man. It was the best experience I could have ever had in this type of situation, while taking a year to get done. I highly recommend him to anyone needing counsel in this field because he is the best and there is no doubt in that.

I never had such a good attorney like him . He explains everything I need to know about my case and recommends what I should do. He also says that he is hired by me so I make the decisions like the final on like setttlements or going to court. I'm very comfortable with him in talking about the case and what he needs for the case from me. He won my workers Comp case for me but they still didn't give me much. He won my other cases also and I recieved my compensation for them.
