I was very satisfied working along with Todd Julian and Bucky Slomski, in which was an emotional time. They were always quick to get back with me and keep me informed. They spoke to you like a friend, and I would defiantly recommend them. Blessings to them.

Thank you! Thank you!! I'm forever grateful to Todd Julian and Bucky Slomski for helping me find closure and peace after I was severely injured. They truly cared about me and the trauma I went through. They worked tirelessly through the whole process to uncover the truth. Bucky Slomski is my HERO!! He fought through all the road blocks and walls that were put up and he uncovered the truth of what happened to me. He never stopped digging and grinding through the obstacles. Bucky is an excellent person to have on your side when you are in a similar fight.

After nearly 5 years since my injury, I can finally feel peace and sleep soundly. It is a huge relief and I feel blessed that I had two of the best attorneys working every day to fight for me.
