Would highly recommend Cross Prescott
We contacted Oleg to represent us in a personal injury case. Oleg was very timely with his communication and put my family at ease. Oleg was welcoming and friendly as well. Oleg also helped get us a settlement even when it looked like the insurance company would not. We are very satisfied with his representation and would recommend him.

Excellent Attorney
I consulted with Mr. Cross after suffering a brain injury. I was in pain and in shock from trying to navigate all the issues that arose from my injury with my insurance company and work. Mr. Cross was very responsive and compassionate. He advised me of my options and put me in touch with the right specialists and experts. Mr. Cross is extremely professional and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend him to anyone dealing with traumatic brain injury.

Great Traumatic Brain Injury Attorney
I contacted Mr. Cross after my close family member suffered a traumatic brain injury. Mr. Cross was knowledgeable, thorough and very well-prepared during our meetings and phone conversations. Equally as important, he always promptly returned our phone calls and answered all our questions. Nothing will take away from the pain and anguish that my family went through as a result of the injury, but Mr. Cross made the legal aspect of the process as painless as possible.

Excellent personal injury lawyer
Oleg helped a family member who was seriously injured when a waiter spilled boiling water on her in a restaurant. Although this incident happened on a weekend, Oleg returned my call immediately and gave us great advice on what to do. He agreed to take on representation, and handled the case with great professionalism. I know that in addition to serious personal injury cases, he also handles wrongful death cases.
