Can’t I just handle a case between myself and my insurance company without hiring a lawyer?

You could, but keep in mind that a personal injury and wrongful death attorney will work for you, while an insurance company agent will work toward the company’s interest – paying the smallest possible settlement.

  • "Thank you just doesn’t come close to what you deserve for everything you have done for me. Over two years ago I came in not having a clue what to do. You listened to me, you cared for me, and you fought for me. And you continued to fight for me. I cannot express the appreciation and gratitude I have for you. You are a man of character and it shows in your work. It has been a privilege and honor to have met you and to have you on my side."

  • "A neighbor said he saw sparks, but we didn’t see any fire. I ended up in the hospital for months. A friend of mine recommended this firm. David did a lot of research, hired just the right experts and got all the information. They did a good job for me. They communicated well and told me what was going on. I don’t know of anyone that could have done better. They turned out to be very good friends."

  • "I needed the direction and Christopher Hoffer provided that. He is very calm, well organized, and very capable. I still have pain from the car accident today but he helped me get a settlement from the insurance company to cover auto and medical expenses and was very supportive. He did a great job for me and he’ll do the same for you."

  • "Sending you a friendly reminder! It has been 10 long years since my 1st accident. I know, hard to believe! And I wanted to express to you, a huge thank you David! I don’t know where I would be, or what the outcome of all that has happened, that could have been….without you. Thank you so much for being so kind to me, and caring for me; which has produced a great friendship! Know that I appreciate the role you have played in my life."

  • "Words cannot express the amount of gratitude and a million thank you’s to you. What a pressure of relief off me! These past years have been a struggle for my family and I. I will hold you in the highest regards and nothing but faith and happiness to both of you. You have fought long and hard for us! I guess my upbringing and personality were never to sue or properly bring justice. But the morning after the crash and years of pain tends to change your fight. I’m a firm believer that certain people pass through your life for a reason. Thank you so much again!"
