" ... From the first time we met, I felt such a relief from the monumental efforts I felt would have been required to maneuver the insurance system...
“I’m sincerely impressed with his negotiating skill, legal expertise, ability to elicit numerous details from involved parties, his uncanny sense of how and when to make use of those innumerable details in negotiating the settlement, and his calm, always pleasant, self-assured, and
” … The fact that this is the only kind of lawsuit he handles keeps his energy concentrated in this area and assures that he keeps up-to-date with related legal and government regulations.
“Perhaps most important throughout this process has been the trust he has inspired in me by reporting, in a timely and organized way, each step of the legal process along the way and, even more important, the strong sense of integrity and reliability he projects … “

"In March of this year when I was involved in an automobile accident in which I felt like I was a target on I-75, you came to my rescue with expert advice, help and a solution...
“I really appreciate your extensive knowledge on how you handled my automobile accident, how you dealt with the at-fault insurance company, and how you obtained a fair settlement for me. You handled everything in a professional and speedy manner with limited delays. You taught me about
“You took time to make sure we understood what was to take place assuring us that you would take care of everything, and you did just that. We did not have to worry about any of these issues because you were there to do the hard work for us. Thank you for your knowledge and expertise in dealing with the medical professionals and the insurance companies.

"When I got rear ended in one Atlanta's ice storms, I got an introduction to the wonderful world of insurance adjusters...
“I was amazed at how crafty their agents were both on the phone and in person. Luckily, I had spoken to you before speaking with them and you had warned me about the tactics they would use to try to minimize their obligation to both me and their clients.
“I wish everyone knew you, Paul … Having you work through this case with me was very comforting. It’s one thing to listen to what Uncle Moe says or the court shows on TV and
“In my specific case, the insurance company’s adjusters tried to shirk their responsibilities in regards to treatment for injuries I incurred in the accident. Your knowledge of the law and assertiveness pushed them into finally accepting accountability for their bills – and eventually into making the proper payment, covering all of the incurred expenses.
“Thank you for your help, Paul. Had I had to pay those bills out of my pocket, it would have created a heavy hardship for my family. You made sure I got the help I needed and that it got paid for.”

"Very professional, excellent attorney."
– Christopher B.
"Thank you so very much for settling the matter of damage to my vehicle as a result of a hit-and-run incident involving an alleged drunk driver last November...
“When Cincinnati Insurance decided to pay only for repair costs without regard to compensation for the repugnant actions of their insured, you carefully explained what my rights were as a claimant and that punitive damages could be easily sought. I really appreciate the time that you took to explain the laws governing personal injury in a manner that is logical and easy for a lay person to understand.
“Dealing with an insurance company would be an intimidating process if it were not for your ability to take the matter completely off of my hands. You also did a great job of giving me regular updates as to the progress of the settlement, and you recovered over 5 times what was originally offered.
“I will enthusiastically refer you to anyone I know that finds themselves in a similar situation.”
-Rick Y. (April 13, 2011)
"Words cannot express my gratitude for the help you provided reaching a settlement with Auto Owners Insurance...
“When my son’s car was badly damaged in a recent accident ( that was not his fault), I didn’t think you would be able to help me since my son was not injured.
“Your persistence and knowledge helped move us through this process quickly. The first offer we received was almost half of what you were able to negotiate in the final settlement. Of course, I believe the figure you negotiated was the fair amount, but I never could have attained that kind of settlement without your help. In fact, before you got involved, this claim had been languishing for three weeks at the insurance company with no movement. With your first call and letter, things started happening. You are worth every penny.

"I want to personally thank you for the personalized care you gave my daughter while representing her against the two insurance companies involved in her automobile accident...
“I find it very refreshing to associate with an attorney having your morals and ethics. I always felt that you were working towards an equitable settlement that was fair and just. I found that your expertise in what we could claim was excellent and helped my daughter recover for actual damages incurred. The fact that you have been helping represent people in negotiating a fair settlement for 14 years was apparent. You took the time to explain to us what the protocol was for negotiating a settlement and when you could actually start the negotiating process with the insurance companies. It was interesting to learn that there was an additional value of the further depreciation on her vehicle
“When the time came for negotiation it was a relatively short time until my daughter was able to get a decent settlement and get back to her life. The settlement allowed for her to pay all of her expenses incurred from the collision and gave her some additional compensation, which will help her in acquiring a new vehicle.
“Paul, you are one of the best at your job. I will not have any hesitation in referring anyone, that walks into my office or that I know, to you for assistance in any personal injury matter.”

"...Organized and thorough to the point of OCD...
“Never have I had a client who had a question that he had not answered before they had to ask him. …he is amazing. Best part he WILL TALK to you.”
"He does a great job...
“Free initial consultation. Takes pictures of your car, files diminished value, handles PI claim and insurance subrogation claim after settlement. All important parts of the process that few people talk about.”
– Cheryl R.
