An attorney's skills are evident not only by the great cases and huge settlements on their record but also by their work on cases like mine. I hired Ms Boyer for a personal injury claim following a motor vehicle accident. Appropriately, Ms. Boyer warned me that my case had some flaws and advised me on what evidence would be necessary to fill the gaps. However, when everything was pulled together, not all the records contained the accurate and detailed information that we needed to prove our case. But despite Ms. Boyer and her associates putting a tremendous amount of time into what was looking like a wasted effort, she was always kind, respectful, sympathetic, and even apologetic, though she was more deserving of an apology than I was.
Unexpectedly, Ms Boyer did manage to get a modest settlement for me. Again, a big apology from her that it was so small, but it was enough to put a bit of breathing room in my stretched-to-the-limit budget, and I was very grateful for that.
Although I would have liked to have been on Ms Boyer's impressive list of big wins, I was ultimately a winner, too. In addition to the small amount of compensation, Ms Boyer made sure I understood everything that had happened along with some how's and why's about what had gone wrong. This helped give me an important sense of closure for the whole episode of my accident and injury, and the ability to start moving forward again.

I am very happy I found Athena to work with me after my car accident. After more than 2 years of treatments, and not getting any closer to resolving lingering pain issues, I was ready to close my claim to just get it over with. When she discovered that I was still planning to continue seeking treatment for my pain, she encouraged me to keep my claim open until it was clear that I would not need more care. I’m glad she did. After 4 years, I am finally mostly pain free and all of my medical bills were covered by the insurance company. Athena was also very determined to negotiate the best settlement for me and didn’t stop until she had accomplished this. I really felt like she was in my corner the whole time. I am not a fighter, but she is and she will fight hard for you and see that you are compensated fairly.
I was very impressed with the high level of communication I had with Athena and her assistant. I was kept informed on a regular basis, and was always encouraged to ask questions if I had them and always received a prompt response if I had any inquiries.
I also really feel that Athena has a lot of compassion for her clients. She believes in and is great at what she does. I was in a car accident 10 years before this one, it was even more severe and I wish I could say that attorney was as caring, capable and determined as Athena is. I wish I had been able to work with her then as well.
I can't recommend her highly enough!!

Athena was willing to take my case when 4 other attorneys from my legal referral service refused to help me. I had two very complicated rear-enders that happened less than a year apart. The damages were not highly significant, but due to previous back problems, the impacts were. When I had given up hope at ever resolving the accidents, my Chiropractor suggested I contact her firm. Athena was honest right from the start and very welcoming. She explained how and why my circumstances may be challenging and then she assured me that she would do her best to help me settle the matter. Boy did she keep true to her word! Athena explained things me to in ways that made sense. She was candid and concise and treated with me absolute integrity. I have never had a more positive experience with such a stressful ordeal. The battering phone calls stopped and I felt confident that she was in background working on my case. Whenever I contacted her, she got back to me the same day. I felt that my case truly mattered to her. She fought hard for me and worked hard for me and I knew she did it with sincerity because she took quality time to get to know me and all the details of the case. She helped me settle an almost impossible case! This is the kind of attorney that will humbly fight tooth and nail for you. She is a graceful no-nonsense warrior kind of lawyer that will go the extra mile for you. I’m grateful to have met her and the money she won for me... well, that was just an overwhelming bonus!

Athena is an incredible attorney. I have worked with Athena on a personal injury case and have seen first hand how hard she fights for her clients. She is bright and hardworking and I would highly recommend this attorney to any of my friends or relatives.
