About 7 years ago, my sister was in a car accident and was very pleased with the way the firm handled her case. Unforuntately, I was in a car accident and she recommended that I call Parker Waichman. I could not be more happy with the way the case was handled and the outcome. The staff is also very friendly, which was refreshing.
