Took me serious and took on the insurance company!
Ian was great from the beginning. He listened to how my accident happened and was kind when I told him about the lasting injuries. He took on the other guys insurance company that had told me to take a hike on my medical bills. On top of that he was always there when I had questions or didn't understand how things worked in the legal system. Ian and his firm are great!
