Shawn did an excellent job for me in my case (Personal Injury).
He & his staff kept me advised of the status my case at all times..
He successfully negotiated a settlement that was in my favor.
The amount will help ease some of the problems I have because
of the accident. The ability to hire "help" when needed makes
quality of my life so much better! Kudos to his staff for their assistance & help during this very stressful time in my life!
(especially Jennie & Debbie)

Jenny is a complete sweetheart that gives you updates as soon as you need them. She is willing to go the extra mile to make sure that any of your questions are answered, and I definitely appreciate that a lot! Shawn is also amazing with negotiating and his work! The other insurance decided that they only wanted to pay $13,000 which Shawn did not agree with, so we filed a lawsuit against them for more money. They ended up settling to pay out the maximum for their insurance, but Shawn was determined that that was still not enough for the accident that was caused, so he negotiated with my insurance company to get more. My PIP reimbursement ($5,000) was completely waived, I received $25,400 from the other insurance, and $20,000 from my insurance. The whole process took only a matter of 2-3 months after being discharged from the doctors and they received all of my medical chart. I'm currently just waiting on my final settlement check to go through now, but should receive it within the next 2-3 weeks. I couldn't be any more happier with the end results and will definitely recommend using them to anyone interested in looking for lawyer.

Shawn Briggs and his team have been fabulous. I was in 2 accidents in less than 2 years, neither of them my fault. From the initial consultation with Shawn and throughout the process of settling the first claim (2nd one is still ongoing), the entire team was just WONDERFUL. My paralegal, Jennifer Roper, has been in constant contact with me throughout the duration, and is always willing to answer any question I have, no matter how trivial I thought the question was. I would HIGHLY recommend Shawn and his team to anyone who has been involved in an accident. I was unsure about obtaining a lawyer in the beginning, but I am so glad I did. PROTECT YOURSELF and call Shawn Briggs!!!
