No Regrets! Best Decision I Made!
I hired Butler Viadro (Chris Viadro was my attorney) to represent me in my worker's comp injury case and am extremely grateful that I did. I was not sure if I should hire anybody, let alone a firm that I knew virtually nothing about... I am happy to say however that the decisions to hire an attorney, and to hire Chris Viadro of Butler Viadro, were beyond "smart" decisions and if I had to decide all over again, I would not change a thing. Chris was very knowledgeable in worker's rights as well as injury laws and stipulations... and where he had questions about my case or my specific situation, he was honest about it and did the necessary research to find the answer and/or the best direction to take every time. Mr. Viadro is professional and it shows in meeting him in person as well as in his communications; with myself and with my worker's comp insurance adjusters alike. The best part of hiring Chris was not feeling pressured. He was patient, supportive and understanding, while also being honest and up front at all times. He never attempted to persuade me in any decision and always left me feeling in control and able to make the decision that was best for me and my family. I only have one criticism of my experience: Because I hold service providers and professionals to the highest standards in all areas of my life, I have to say there could have been a little more time spent with me and on my case to a) help understand some of my questions better and b) be more explanatory in some areas where I had questions and wanted to understand the process more deeply. This being said, Chris has been accepting of this criticism and has promised to get to know future clients regarding their level of need rather than assume all have the same level of need. If I had a reason to hire Chris again, I would feel completely comfortable and trusting doing so. In fact, it would put my mind at ease knowing he was working on my case. I would highly recommend Butler Viadro to anybody needing legal advocacy and representation in a worker's injury case.
