Real Reviews – Real Clients

This law firm has been the best!! My lawyer, Izabela, was the best! I was out of work for almost two years and Izabela ensured that I received my earnings. There were times that I couldn’t hear her voice but email became our best friend. I received a response within 24 hours or less. She was my personal pitbull. Fighting on my behalf to ensure my financial needs were met, my health concerns, and my overall mental health concerns. I would not have remained sane without her. Love My Pitbull—Izabela !!

If you are injured these are the guys you want. Matt has excellent communication and expertise . He will guide you every step of the way. Thanks Matt.


Chris Norem represented and won our case in court. He is an amazing lawyer who had always gone above and beyond for us. We had put our trust in Chris and had complete confidence in his knowledge and skills. In return, he had attained justice for our family and a settlement of more than we ever hoped for. We would 100% recommend this law firm.


During my workman’s comp case I contacted Matt Coleman. He ensured me everything will be okay. During the process he was always available and always took the time to explain to me what was going on. Without his help I wouldn’t have gotten the settlement I did. Even as of today Matt still calls and check up on me. I would highly recommended him and his firm.
