Client Testimonial

When my husband died from what I believed was medical negligence, I contacted The Brown Firm. From the initial consultation to the conclusion of the case, I was kept apprised as to all aspects of the process, and treated with a high level of professionalism and courtesy. Having never gone through anything like this before, I was fearful and skeptical. Both Mr. Brown and his assistant, Patty, worked diligently for me, provided emotional support when I needed it, and genuinely cared about me, and my future. Any time I had a question or a concern, I was able to reach Mr. Brown personally, or if he was unavailable, he always returned my calls promptly. There was never a time he was not willing to listen to me, and provide good advice, as well as encouragement. He consistently took my feelings and opinions into consideration, and never attempted to force me into a decision I was uncomfortable with. The Brown Firm had both the financial and personal resources, as well as the expertise, to locate and retain the appropriate experts needed to successfully assist with my case. I was extremely pleased with the outcome of my caseand the peace of mind it has brought to me. I believe Mr. Brown is the very best there is at what he does. I would not hesitate to recommend this firm to anyone.
