Jerusha scores big for Bo!
Jerusha exceeded all of my award expectations. I have talked to many experienced veterans over the years & none of them ever expected me to get a max financial award plus unemployability. Jerusha had to appeal several times and never gave up on me! I could never have expected more effort & legal experience!
