  • Damian R. Castaneda

    I endorse this lawyer. If you have a personal injury matter, Mr. Burlison is an excellent choice because he used to be an insurance defense lawyer. Most personal injury actions are handled by insurance companies. So it's a benefit to have someone who has worked for an insurance company—he knows how they think and what motivates them to settle. He also has an informative blog which he regularly updates with topics related to personal injury.
