Bob is an amazing lawyer and friend. I was scared, overwhelmed and distrusting when I began looking for a lawyer. I had a negative view of what legal entanglement may look like and was in so so much pain. I was hit by a driver who was under insured with an allegedly arguable liability. Where other lawyers were on the fence about my case, Bob was jumping up and down to represent me. He is so thorough and actually cares so much. He is so genuine and kind and spent countless hours explaining things over the phone or email. Anytime ANYTHING came up, a bill not paid, a threat from an insurance company, etc. Bob would spring into action and get it taken care of. This left so much space for me to heal emotionally and physically.
Bob had so much pushback when representing me. Questionable liability. Pursuing underinsured motorist protection from my car insurance plan even though I was on my bike when the accident occurred. Navigating a threat to underpay or not pay at all And getting the absolute maximum of my comprehensive protection coverage alloted even despite recently moving states and the insurance trying to abide by my old states laws. He did so much background work on my case, piecing together the complex medical history and dozens of second opinions with so much grace. He navigated subrogation for me, never told me what to do but always offered his advice when I asked for it. It took about a year and a half to resolve the settlement, which he warned me about up front, because I had several surgeries and much recovery to be done. He did not stop fighting until my bills were all taken care of and I had a generous settlement. He and Sheri worked so hard on so many things I can't even put it all into words.. when I had questions about the settlement disbursal, Bob rearranged things because he wanted me to feel I got a better than fair arrangement. He is humble and passionate and compassionate and genuinely makes you feel like a respected and valued person, not just a means to a financial end as a client (which I think many of us fear when we enter into a legal issue and need a lawyer). He has so much experience and is a biker himself with so much history advocating for those of us who get around on two wheels. He genuinely cares.
After subrogation, when my insurance tried to slip some unpaid bills past us, he and Sheri reached out right away and took care of it. Seriously when anything ever came up, I just told Bob and Bob would handle it so I could continue healing. He even got me an extra settlement over the emotional distress caused (bad faith claim) by the insurance initially threatening to give nothing or much less than my policy, which was a huge bonus. He gave tons of advice and worked so hard on my questions beyond his official job title and helped me understand more about secondary issues like medical malpractice. When I read the final settlement draft and 80+ page document he comprised from my medical records and statements, it was clear he pays attention and actually really listens and cares. He even went as far as to wire my deposits on his own time with the bank because I have an out of state bank that made cashing the checks difficult.
At every turn, Bob and Sheri helped me, educated me, gave advice, and truly helped heal my mind, body and soul by being constantly reliable, compassionate, remembering the details about me and my situations, and by making me feel safe and taken care of and represented so I could just focus on praying and healing and doing the work of surgeries and physical therapy. I could not have asked for a better lawyer after such a life altering, painful situation and I have so many more things I could elaborate on but I'm running out of characters. If he's available, work with Bob. He was definitely born to help people in this way and has the gifts of hard work, integrity and compassion. The best lawyer I could have asked for. And thank you Sheri, too! :)
