    Karen and Don were a pleasure to work with. Our little boy was injured and from the moment we met with them we knew that they would have only his best interest at heart. They were so responsive to us on a daily basis and very accommodating when my husband and I would ask them a lot of questions about the process. The outcome of our case went extremely well and we can't recommend them enough to anyone that god forbid would be in a situation like ours.
