I had a car accident and thought it would be easy. From the start the insurance companies made it as hard as possible harassing me at home and sending me tons of papers. I hired attorney Shipman and he handled everything. He set excellent expectation, and in the end I was very satisfied with the final settlement. Very professional.
Matt was very professional and responsive to my needs. Overall a great lawyer who I would happliy recommend.
