I contacted this law firm after a horrifying car accident. I have never dealt with lawyers, it was scary. I was assigned to Cindy Messner and Todd Julian. Let me tell you, Cindy was the greatest blessing in our life. She spent hours with us on the phone to ease our worries. She answered any questions we had. She felt more like family than anything. This law firm kept us updated every step of the way. Todd was amazing as well. He was the first Lawyer that we talked to at this firm and made us feel like we were in good hands. I will forever refer people to this firm. They fight for you. they have your best interest at hand. Thank you Cindy and Todd for making this experience so comforting. We will never go to any other law firm. #welovethisfirm #Thankyoucindyandtodd
