Injury Attorney Lindsay Rakers Was There for Me
Lindsay has really been there for me in the time it has taken to get my work comp case to its current state. Anytime I have had any questions, I knew, and still know, that I can call or email whenever it is convenient for me. When I do call, it is not like other lawyers I have spoken to who rush as fast as they can and don’t give each case the respect it deserves. She has treated me very well and if I ever find myself in a situation where legal counsel is required, she is first on my calling list. As a client of Lindsay Rakers, I would highly recommend anyone looking for counsel to call her and you will be taken care of and protected like me

Missouri Attorney Lindsay Rakers Helped Me
I so enjoyed working with Lindsay! She was always professional and made sure to respond promptly to any questions or concerns I had. Even after we agreed on a settlement amount she went the extra mile to negotiate an even higher settlement amount.

Great O'Fallon Illinois Attorney!
Thank you so much for the efficient, professional and very effective manner you handled my personal injury case. My exposure to legal proceedings has been, fortunately, limited in my lifetime. Should I need assistance in the future, you will be the first attorney I call. All good wishes as you enter your second career as a mom!

Great Experience
I so enjoyed working with Lindsay! She was always professional and made sure to respond promptly to any questions or concerns I had. Even after we agreed on a settlement amount she went the extra mile to negotiate an even higher settlement amount. I'm thankful this lawsuit is over and am very pleased with the services of the Cagle Law Firm; I would absolutely recommend them to anyone needing legal assistance in a personal injury suit.
