Efficient, Honest, Thorough
I have recommended Trent Besse on several occasions. He has helped me settle 2 workmen's comp cases, as well as one for my son. I like the way he keeps me informed with the progress of the case. He knows the law and makes solid recommendations to me. I am agreeable with the settlements he gets for me. I will call him again, in a heart beat.
