Catastrophic Injury Paralegal
In my honest opinion, Agnieszka took all the pressure off of me regarding this issue with my PiP claim. She has tirelessly done all the groundwork and saved me all the stress and anxiety of having to do this myself. I honestly could not have done it without her help and I thank her with all my heart for succeeding to get me through it. David Swaine
