Chad was beyond helpful after I got hit by a car on my motorcycle in Nov. Without HIM, I know I would've walked away with bills instead of money in my pocket after the settlement. What's more, he was trustworthy and genuinely wanted to be sure I made out alright. I expected to have to watch any lawyer I hired with a microscope, but it wasn't that way at all. AnD unlike other lawyers I spoke with, he actually takes his cut AFTER medical bills have been paid. Not before, assuming they'll knock off a percentage. I couldn't recommend him more.

Chad and his staff are wonderful. My husband was in a car accident last year and we are so Happy we found Chad. He is very friendly, down to earth and always was available when needed. The whole process went smoothly and with some patience as these things take we were extremely satisfied with the outcome.

Chad is a great guy to work with, very down to earth and easy to talk to. He worked with me on the wrongful death case of my husband, and I couldn't be happier with his quick responses and approach. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants an attorney that is knowledgeable and willing to go the extra mile for his clients.

My 16 yr old son got into a car accident and I was very lost with all the insurance questions and what to do with it. I am so impressed with Chad. He is amazing and very down to earth. He is a genuinely good person who does not take advantage of people or their situation. He is very helpful!! He is honest and has a lot of integrity. I know this because he advised me that it wouldn't be worth the money to hire him because I would be losing out of more money in the end with the case that I had. He has even entertained other questions that I had with no hesitation. Thank you for all your help and all the work that you do and your good heart. My son and I appreciate you!
