My experience with this firm was not only better than I anticipated, it was a huge relief. I didn't have to babysit... like I did with the large firm I left to come here. Attorney, David Drill was professional, knowledgeable, understanding and straightforward. He was never dismissive or intolerant of my tears and always asked me for my input while offering his perspective and expertise. The office staff was always friendly and responsive. I will be referring literally everyone I can here. I can’t thank them enough.read more

Over all it was not bad.. dealing with work comp I found that very few are on your side and no matter who you are, you... are now viewed as a lazy criminal. Debbie was great and communication was clear. Dave did his job but nothing more. I do not feel I was prepared for what I heard in mediation to the extent of the numbers.. as an office 4 stars.. Debbie... 5 stars... the experience... well I'm sorry anyone is even looking for an attorney for help.read more

My experience was not very pleasant, first we were new clients without any experience about car accidents for that... reason we did not know how the process will be or how long that could last. When we started the process we never got explained step by step how will work. We expected more communication from the person in charge of the case in our case was Adrianne, She never answered a call and when I sent emails I did not get an answer on time, most of the time it took more than 48 hours for her to respond and I was not pleased with the answer of my question (leaving me with doubts about what I was asking) when the case of property damage part was finally over with her, the case goes on demand for the insurer which never I saw some copy but I have to clarify that Mrs Daphne nail was very kind.read more

First off, if I could give Daphne ZERO stars, I would. She was terrible with communication! She could never accept a... phone call, I always had to leave messages that she never returned, and didn't even call me on SCHEDULED conference calls. The three stars is only because of my beginning experiences..... My case was transferred to Adrienne, if you have a case here, REQUEST HER. She was such a breath of fresh air. She kept me updated via email about everything. I understand that a lot of phone tag happens during these cases, but she kept me updated on everything. Not a week went by that she didn't tell me what was going on. She fought very hard for me to get my bills and med pay down so that my settlement was better. In the end, she turned an awful experience into a good one. She definitely deserves 5 stars!! Thanks!read more

I don't reccomend this attorney at all. They drug my case out for 6 years. I went 8m without them contacting me. They... aren't genuinely for you. I was told that my case wasn't putting any money in their pockets. That's when I knew I had to fire them. 6 years too long! I reccomend Byrd & Byrd!read more

I really wish I had called John Fagan firm to be on my side a couple years ago after an accident. I did not hire any... representation and have always felt like the insurance company cheated me from a fair settlement. It was a time I needed to feel like I had family on my side and everyone at this law firm will treat you like family. John is an especially amazing community advocate. Don't make the mistake I did!
