Walked Through Every Step
They walked me through every step of the workers compensation process, and I got the medical treatment I needed when the workers compensation insurance carrier refused to do what they were supposed to. When it came time for a settlement, I was surprised by how much I was entitled to.
Got Me Through a Hard Time
Slape & Howard did an excellent job for me at a very difficult time. They always made time for me to discuss the case and always explained exactly where we were in the process. Jonathan did an excellent job, and if you are hurt, you can’t do better than Slape & Howard.
Willing to Take My Case
Jonathan took my case after I had been denied twice. He kept me informed, and always had time to talk to me and address the questions that I had. I am happy to recommend Slape & Howard to anyone looking for an attorney.
Turned My Case Around
You made something that was otherwise very uncomfortable and unpleasant for me seem fine and I had no further worries once you took my case. Thank you.
