I find it very odd to see the less than happy reviews for Sawaya. My experience was top notch.
I was hit by a car an now I walk like an Egyptian. Well, not exactly, but the long story is tedious and irrelevant. What matters is that I needed legal counsel to manage my claims process with the insurance companies. I was assigned Zach Elsner and Erin Threadwell as my legal team, and could not be happier.
Folks, these things are battles, and not the type that are won in days or weeks, but months, and sometimes years. Zach and Erin were perfectly communicative when I needed to act on something, had an update, or just the occasional check in to make sure they know where we all were in the process.
If your hurt, you need more than peace of mind, You need an advocate that is going to take care of business on your behalf. If you need a personal injury attorney, I think that Sawaya is a strong option. Highly professional, and more than anything else, I never felt like they were a bunch of ambulance chasers.
I hope I never have to use them again, but if I ever get rag-dolled by an SUV in the future, I know where to turn.

Zach Took on my case and kept me informed of each and every move and provided mr the best advice. I couldn't have asked for a more complete professional. In the future, if I need advice, it is Zach that I will call. Thanks Zach for everything.

I had the pleasure of having Zach represent me after being run over by a car a couple of years Ago. Zach went above and beyond what my previous experiences with attorneys. He came out to meet me as my injuries prevented my from traveling, kept me update and always returned calls and e emails promptly. He showed compassion and understanding about the trauma I suffered. I would highly recommend him.
