Why Clients Choose Us

After a June 2013 car accident in which I was rear-ended, I was not going to pursue legal action, but a friend convinced me to contact a lawyer, and I'm glad I did. I chose Colin’s firm because of their good reputation within our community, and Colin proved that to be true. He made me feel welcome from the moment we met, listened to what happened, and provided legal advice with no pressure to hire. He worked hard to ensure that I received a fair settlement and always kept me apprised of the next steps in the process. We had an open and honest dialogue and he was forthcoming with new information so I was never in the dark. Should the need arise, I know which firm I will return to in the future.
