Worked with Frank and Lesly and their team for almost 6 years. They made us feel we where their only clients with the level of service and compassion they provided. If we had any questions we always got our answers that promptly. Their ability to work with someone with a invisible disability and adapting to the persons needs was amazing. Totally recommend this law firm – D.C.
My life was completely and permanently altered after a car accident and a resulting traumatic brain injury. To my surprise my own insurance company tried to break me over and over and over again as did the lawyers for the defendant. Lesly Joseph of TS kept me informed and calmed and reassured me when I was about to give up. She always had time for me as did her paralegal. Lesly guided me through the whole process and obtained settlements for me beyond my expectations. And a huge relief was that I did not have to go to trial. Lesly is smart, competent, personable and I highly recommend her. Thanks Lesly! – K.G.
Lesly Joseph and Tara Renaud are very professional and quick to answer questions in a competent and efficient manner. They took the time to re-assure me and guide me through the process of my case. They also made sure I received reminders of the next steps and of what is required in order to keep my case ongoing. I would definitely recommend them to anyone needing legal assistance – R.F.
