After I was injured post car vs. bike accident, I contemplated representing myself while opening a personal injury case -- but I'm SO glad I didn't go that route! Similar to another review, while I was searching for an attorney, my case was said to have been "small" because I did not suffer any broken bones and wasn't as severely injured as I could've been -- this made me feel like the injuries I did suffer were insignificant and made me lose hope. After initially chatting with Lauren Pietsch about my case, Rebecca Taylor and Carmen Wierenga were assigned to represent me and managed the entire process from start to finish. Rebecca is extremely knowledgeable, attentive, responsive, and genuinely cares about her clients. Looking back on it, I can't believe I was even thinking about representing myself -- there's so much more that goes into a personal injury case than I originally thought, and it wouldn't have been worth the additional stress to deal with just to potentially save on commission fees on top of trying to recover physically and mentally.
Rebecca and team went above and beyond to make sure I felt comfortable and protected, and I'm so grateful for the peace of mind and relief they've given me. These smart and talented women are truly experts in their field, and had my best interest at heart throughout everything. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a personal injury lawyer, no matter how "big" or "small" you feel your case may be.
