Definitely the Best - JJ Thompson
I hired JJ Thompson after I was rear ended driving my car home from work, and am very glad I did. Every part of JJ's representation was stellar. He coached me through all phases of my case, kept me informed, thoroughly explained the process, and obtained a very favorable result. I am extremely satisfied with every aspect of JJ's work, and would definitely hire him again!
