Awesome Experience
I was referred to Benson & Bingham by my daughter and son-in-law. As soon as they heard of my accident they immediately started searching and ran across this firm. Without hesitation (because I know my daughter is very thorough in her searches) I immediately called and scheduled a consultation. Though initially nervous at the consultation, speaking with Ms. Oswalt made it more comfortable. She was very thorough in explaining details of the process. I did not feel rushed and Ms. Oswalt was open to any and all questions/concerns I may of had. I felt comfortable and felt the choice was good just from the consultation. I am grateful that fate assigned me with her. No matter how long the time lapse would be I could always count on Ms. Oswalt to contact and update me on outcomes/next steps as soon as possible. She is an outstanding listener and easy to speak to. Being patient is a key factor when going through legal cases and know that even when it doesn't seem like it, Ms. Oswalt is on top of it. Thank you Dana! Despite the accident, the legal experience has been awesome.

Excellent service
I’m so glad I was introduced to Dana, she’s been so awesome throughout this whole process. With every question/concern I’ve had she or Philip (case manager) have always been there to answer it. I was never made to feel dumb about any situation in the process I didn’t understand. She was very informative about everything and genuinely felt she was looking out for my best interests.

Best outcome possible!
When I first got in my accident, I didn't know who to turn too. I was referred to Benson and Bingham by a family member. I consulted with Dana and after that her and their team explained everything and guided me through process. The staff worked on everything and kept me up to date and were always available if I had any questions. Very happy with the outcome!
