Workmans comp attorney
Absolutely horrible attorney, dropped me as soon as she got the money for my case which was no where near what it’s should have been.
Response from Janet Frickey June 14, 2021
I welcome constructive criticism of my work or the work of the people in my firm. Unfortunately in this case I have no record of having represented Ricky. I am unable to identify the e-mailer from the limited email information and name. I would be happy to address whatever issue Ricky may have had with me or someone in my firm.
