My Life Insurance Case
When Isabel first took our case it didn't look very promising. Our mother lost her job and insurance benefits in the summer of 2016 and she passed the following winter. She did not successfully transfer her life insurance to a separate policy so we didn't expect to receive anything. Isabel fought with the insurance companys to get our family the life insurance, and she went above and beyond when it came to making sure all our affairs were in order. She communicated to us every step of the way, and even if we didn't get the payout I would still highly recommend Isabel and her firm to anyone needing legal assistance.

Review for Isabel Humphrey
Isabel Humphrey handled my case very professionally and quickly. I was kept informed of what was going on often and never felt worried or like she wasn't doing her best. She got me a very reasonable deal on my case and I would highly recommend her.

Isabel never let go of our case! She is very gentle kind and caring of the people involved in our case. I am very grateful for her genuine expertise and followup even after the case was closed!
