What Was It Like Before Hiring Arnold & Itkin?
I hired a previous lawyer that was probably on my case for about two months, then they dropped me. Said I didn’t really have a case, they didn’t feel like I would win. A couple of the other guys who were involved in the accident with me had Arnold & Itkin as their lawyers, so I called them up. They took me right in and we spoke about the accident, what they could do for me, what they felt they could do for me.
How Did the Accident Affect Your Family?
My wife and my kids, they all had an issue with my injuries when I was in the hospital. I guess getting there, not knowing what shape I was in…then once I got there I had to be strong for them. To show them that it wasn’t as bad as it may have seemed.
But it was rough on them. I could see in their eyes that they were worried.
Was It Easy to Communicate with Your Attorney?
I was able to get in contact with him directly. He pretty much answered my emails and phone calls, even on the weekends. I didn’t expect him to. I had something that popped in my head that I wanted to ask that I didn’t want to forget, so I went ahead and sent the email.
He seemed like he was always able to respond rather quickly.
What Was Your Experience Like with Arnold & Itkin?
I haven’t dealt with a whole lot of lawyers, but they make you feel like family, like you’re part of them. They keep you informed on what’s going on, and it was just a pleasant experience from what I expected originally.
