I was in a car accident and needed a personal injury lawyer. Frances and her staff handled my case very professionally and kept me informed throughout the process. They handled the interfaces with multiple automobile insurance companies as well as my healthcare insurance company. After the settlement, one of the healthcare providers tried to retroactively bill me for thousands of dollars. Rather than leaving this for me to resolve, Frances and her staff expended quite a bit of time and effort at their own expense to painstakingly trace and resolve the payment/billing issue across multiple parties. Having Frances and her staff handle my case took a tremendous burden off of me and allowed me to focus on my physical recovery. I highly recommend Frances.
