“Andy, thank you so much for the way you took care of me and my case! You were always there for me. I couldn’t have gotten through it without you and your wonderful team.”
- Kathy S., Client - Automobile Accident
“I was taken to the Trauma Center at Lima Memorial Hospital with head trauma and an almost complete severed left index finger. I was off work for several weeks and went through 2 surgeries and 6 months of occupational therapy. During this time I not only missed work but my “normal” life had been put on hold.
I connected with Andy Goldwasser through my doctor after my accident and from day one Andy and Quenna worked together with me to see that I received a fair settlement. Andy never stopped working for me and in the end I received a very nice settlement. I will always be thankful to both Andy and Quenna for the time they put into my case. Both of them were so pleasant to work with and so concerned about my personal health and well being.
I would certainly ask that if you ever have a similar situation you find yourself in that you give them a chance to go to bat for you. I am 100% sure you will be satisfied and amazed at the results!!”
