L&I/personal injury
I am impressed with Bill Hochberg and Rachel Hamar and glad I chose them to be my attorneys—these two lawyers took my workers’ compensation and personal injury cases and litigated them with skill and dedication, all the way through arbitration in my personal injury case. My attorneys were not afraid to go toe-to-toe with the insurance company and fought hard to protect my rights. My cases were complicated and difficult, but Bill and Rachel worked hard to get me an excellent result—I highly recommend them!
