Attorney Review from a Real Client

Never did I imagine we would hire a personal injury lawyer. In fact, when my husband's life was seriously shaken after an intoxicated driver hit and caused a roll-over (which killed 2 of my husband's friends) we waited almost two months before admitting that we couldn't manage the legal issues and medical bills ourselves. Tom and I learned that our insurance company was not on our side. We also learned that there are so many intricacies in the auto and health insurance industries that we were ill equipped to handle it all. At this time, we reluctantly called Warshafsky to interview them for possible services. John came to the hospital l to meet with us regarding the accident. It was immediately clear that we made the right call and we chose to hire them right away. We turned our worries over to them. We got a call from attorney Krista G. LaFave shortly after the initial meeting. From there, we had very regular contact with both Krista and her paralegal Stephanie Laurich. They gave us invaluable advice about what to do/not do. They were responsive to email and phone calls. They were patient with us and our questions. They addressed each of our concerns with both professionalism and care. Tom's injuries were extensive. They required over two months of hospitalization and dozens of surgeries. We were 6 hours from home, making my situation more complicated. When he was finally released, Tom was medically fragile and we were both weary. During this time, Krista and Stephanie were nothing short of amazing. They instilled confidence and demonstrated every ounce of professionalism we needed. Dealing with insurance companies is not for the faint of heart. Both Krista and Stephanie clearly knew their stuff. They went with full force in getting compliance from the insurance companies. They also were very compassionate in our need to work through settlement issues with the other parties. They knew when to be bulldogs and they knew when to listen to us. We loved everything about their work, but that was my favorite part in hiring them. Krista and Stephanie are the real deal. I would recommend them in a heartbeat.
