My best advocate/attorney
I was in an auto accident, rear-ended on a busy intersection, which caused me to have multiple physical ailments. I had heard about My attorney, Dan Cartwright from two different sources how well he represented them and his team was very dependable, readily available for any questions. After I got over the shock of my accident, I consulted with him about my accident and injuries. After he took his time explaining thoroughly what to expect and the timeline that it will take, I felt confident to ask him to represent me. My attorney Dan Cartwright took care of everything and I won a huge settlement that I was very happy with. When I was scared and not really knowing what to do, I am so grateful that Dan Cartwright was on my side representing me. I highly recommend him for all your legal matters
