5.0 out of 5.0  
I appreciated the organization, communication, and counsel provided by Lu Ann White. After describing my personal injury case, she outlined several different avenues I could pursue. Bluntly, I chose the option that required me to do the least and never looked back. She handled everything in a professional and timely manner. The last thing I wanted to do was communicate with not one, but two different insurance claims organizations. I felt like she negotiated a very fair settlement.
