Personal Injury - Handle with care
Andy took care of my case against two individuals, where one was a lot more at fault than the other. Basically a friend and I were walking down a street in downtown Chicago when a Porsche ran the light, a Range Rover went on his green light, and they struck each other in the intersection, then heading for us - where we were on foot. I wound up with swollen legs and the inability to walk for a couple weeks, but thankfully I lived. (As did my friend, but with worse injuries). Andy took our case for us and handled it with aplomb and professionalism. It's a hard thing to deal with - the reality that, had a street pole not been there, I would be dead. It's good to have someone like Andy on your side, fighting for your restitution and welfare. That being said, I would have liked to see the party responsible go to jail. But that's another story for Chicago's political corruption.
