Workers Comp Case
They are a small business and were very straightforward with me about my workers comp case. They will handle all of the paper work for you while making sure you stay covered, if you do not have a lawyer I have heard workers comp will try anything to get you off their coverage so I would recommend a lawyer. Charlsey Wolff ended up getting me a settlement in the ball park of the original estimate she thought I could receive. My main advice would be to really research and read reviews before choosing your workers comp doctor because they will be your go to person for therapy outside of the lawyer. So be picky, though there my be limited options. I would go back to Charlsey if I was injured again or in a car accident.

Wonderful people to have working for you.
Charlsey handled my case in an efficiently and timely manner. She was always available returning emails, phone calls in a timely fashion. Charlsey and her staff removed stress from a stressful situation, went above and beyond to help. Competent and aggressive with my case.

Bicycle accident case
Took my son's case even though the police report blamed my son for the accident in which he was seriously injured. Has been working hard to make sure he gets compensated.
