I had Susan Mitchell as my lawyer and I thought the service provided was excellent. All procedures were clearly explained, questions were always answered expediently and professionally. I would highly recommend this firm. – L.C.
The law firm was recommended to me at a stage when I was in bad shape following a RTA. At a point where my family and I did not even know what I needed moving forward. Susan Mitchell and her team were very helpful in advising me how to get immediate help and also on how to get set up with ongoing care. As such I was able to focus on recovery. When it came time to negotiate for my settlement, they made the process much less stressful than I had expected and were able to get me a generous settlement. I am very satisfied with this law firm. – J.G.
