“When a motorist with minimum coverage hit me, I wasn't sure how to proceed with my insurance claim. Several people told me to pursue a personal injury lawyer, but since the accident was caused by the other driver, I felt the insurance companies would do the right thing. Nothing could be further from the truth. During the months following the accident, I tried to navigate and maneuver through the mounds of insurance bureaucrats with no resolutions. Nothing was happening. Bills were not getting paid, phone calls not being returned, in short, I was getting nowhere.

Finally, I was referred to Daniel Earnshaw and his team by a friend who said Mr. Earnshaw was highly thought of in the field. From my first conversation with Dan, it was apparent that he was the right counsel for me. He went over every aspect of the case. His knowledge of personal injury/auto accident and insurance law was astounding. Throughout the entire process, Daniel was up front and let me know what was going on, what information he needed, and when I could expect progress reports. He communicated regularly, with updates by phone, letters and e-mails. The end result was more than I could have hoped for. While I would prefer never to be in that type of situation again, there is no question that if I am, I would retain Dan again in a heartbeat.”
