Quotes from Robin Young-Ellis:
“Too often, I see personal injury victims who have been completely focused on simply seeing their injury acknowledged and blame legally affixed. The truth is, that’s just the beginning of what it will take to rebuild their lives. Their future, their best chance for long-term physical and emotional healing, often lies in having someone on their side who can swiftly and accurately structure a financial settlement that will safeguard them for years to come.”
