After my first meeting with Paul Daniels, I had complete confidence in his legal expertise. He was very compassionate about my injuries sustained in an automobile accident, and the difficulties I was experiencing with an insurance company that refused to help with any of my outstanding medical expenses. He thoroughly explained all of my options and was very patient with my many questions. He kept me informed of every step of the process. Paul went above and beyond to ensure that all of my medical expenses were resolved. I have the highest respect for him and will always be grateful for his help and dedication to my case. I would highly recommend him as your legal representative.
