Amazing Attorney! She gets results!
She really knows how to take on a challenge and she was very motivating! She was very informative throughout the whole process. She successfully reached the policy limits of the other insured and also helped with my uninsured motorist claim to help cover my remaining medical bills. I would strongly recommend her if you were injured in an auto accident.

Lazy and lied to us. cost us more than $8000 in promised settlement by her
We hired Sarah after getting a quick settlement offer from the insurance company of the college that hit us. Sarah said no, don't take it. I can get in $10k easily after repairs to your car and medical cost. Months went by, no response from Sarah and every time we followed up no update from. She kept saying she is waiting for documents. After more than 6 months of no results from Sarah, we fired her and she sends me email saying she worked "really" hard on this case. After getting in touch with the insurance company, they said they've already sent all the info to her and provided me proof but also said she never responded or follow through with claim. Now that so much time has gone by, their initial quick settlement has expired. Told the insurance company our situation with Sarah's lack of progress and they can see as well, they offered an even smaller cash settlement, far less than initially offered. All this is thanked to Sarah's lack of attention to our case. We guess it is because our case is so small and not worth her time while she chases bigger $$$ cases.
