Amy was a great servant!
I found Amy by God's grace. I had been injured in a car accident and pursuing my recovery by myself. Amy stepped in and really helped to turn my situation(s) around. Because of her consistency and compassion, I have a lot to be grateful for.

Amy became like part of my family
Amy really took care of all my needs after I hired her as my attorney. We were able to build a very trusting relationship with her. She and Bill became like part of my family. I was very pleased with the end result as well.

Amy was awesome
Amy and Bill were helpful and prompt and they helped me through a difficult time. I was very pleased with the outcome. If anything else were to ever happen to me again, I would certainly return to them. They explained in depth how the claims and recovery worked and they made it easy to understand even though I did not have a background in law. Everything with them is upfront. They are very honest and straightforward.
