Good decisions
Sound advice, logical and fair. I trust him completely.
Posted by RICK | July 8, 2012
I had nowhere to turn when an insurance company denied my claim for roof damage after a hail storm. Mr. Hazlewood accepted my case and all the expenses involved in a two year battle that went to trial. Due to his experience and knowledge, I won a settlement. He is one of the most dedicated, up front, and professional attorneys I have ever dealt with. If you've been wronged by corporate America, start with calling Russ!!
