Excellent and professional lawyer
I was struck by two cars while standing on a sidewalk. This was a horrible and traumatic experience. Luckily, I was represented in my civil case by Mr. Brabender. He was compassionate, persistent, and thorough. He did a wonderful job of keeping me informed, staying on top of my case, explaining all of the details of the case to me, providing feedback any time I needed it (he was always available for my questions or concerns), and pushing the case forward so that it could close in a timely manner. I have recommended Mr. Brabender (we call him Andy because he is so friendly!) to my friends and I would use him again. He is intelligent and has a wealth of skills; however, he is also down-to-earth and sympathetic to a client's feelings, specifically he understands how traumatic these events are to the client. My case was closed in a timely manner and successfully. I truly believe this occurred because Andy worked so diligently on my case. I walked away (literally and figuratively!) from my case with a positive experience and impression of lawyers.
