I have unfortunately had a few accidents and was lucky enough to have their great service. One was a car accident case being rear ended while stopped. I used a horrible chiro (instead of the one they recommended) who had been charging me interest on my unpaid bills, even though it was filed as a personal injury case and they knew they would get paid at the end of the case with the PIP money. My paralegal fought to get those unethical fees waived and lowered as much of the costs as possible. My other case was leaving UF and got hit walking on the cross walk with the right of way by someone making a right hand turn. I was lucky enough to only suffer a broken ankle. I had the same paralegal and she settled the case and had the pay out in only a couple of months with the max amount. This is a firm with the friendliest office staff around! I highly recommend them (in any bad situation)!
