In our initial meeting, Eric lead me to believe that he would be handling my case personally. After our first meeting I only spoke with Eric one time when he tried to pressure me into taking a settlement. I was very displeased with the lack of communication from the firm.

It took forever! No phone calls or contact from them at all during the waiting time. And now they get my money every month and I still have to wait every month before getting my money.I have to call and call every month. DO NOT USE THEM!
