A Settlement that was almost impossib
This was a very difficult case I was left handicapped due to a negligent tow truck driver. They refused to pay it was a very difficult time but Mr Eglett, wife and thanks to his staff they work together to get the case done. I want to thank them for taking care of my case. Great Job! !!

Worst experience!!!
Horrible 7 years. He went through roughly 9 paralegals. Changed my trial date several times. Didn't do his job, listen or care about me. Vacated my trial and accepted a settlement against my wishes/demands. My injuries will last my whole life. They didn't even get me enough to cover one of several necessary surgeries. Robert and his "wife" Tracy are only out for themselves. Truly, do yourselves a favor. Don't hire these incompetent, ego maniacs. Your future and well being can't be trusted with them.
