CAR ACCIDENT
Was referred to this attorney in regards to a case when I was hit on New years Eve. My brand new car was totaled And I had a severe injury. Mr Shaw definitely bent over backwards for me making me feel great with my settlement amount . Had some communication issue with Paralegal working on my case but things definitely changed once he was aware of the issue . I would definitely go back to Mr Shaw thank you for all your help
