Sample Testimonials From Clients:

Dave,   I would like to thank you for handling my case.  I appreciate your continued efforts and dealings with all the insurance people involved.  Also a special thank you to Rene for handling the details on a day to day basis and keeping me informed of necessary information.  It was a pleasure to work with both of you.  We could not have gotten to this point without your law firm.  You gave me the opportunity to get well instead of worrying myself sick and fighting with everybody, from hospitals to insurance companies, about what I owed.  Thanks again.   Ted S. of  South Amherst, Ohio.

David,  Thank you so much from Sandra and myself.  You and your staff made a very bad situation for me and my family comfortable and even pleasant.  Brad did an outstanding job and was an absolute pleasure to work with.  You have my deepest gratitude.  Tim T. of  Wakeman, Ohio.
