I would like to tell you how satisfied I am with my outcome. It was really a pleasure working with you. You were very easy to talk to and I always felt comfortable. You took the time to explain the process to me so I understood each step that was being taken on my behalf. I also appreciate the fact that you reached out to me on a regular basis to keep me updated on the status of my case. I was so impressed with your services that I referred a co-worker for assistance. I just want to say I am very happy that I came to you for help, and your law group is the best!!
Hiring Mark Sherry was the best decision I have ever made! I wish I would have hired him FIRST to handle my Workers Comp case. Mark was a delight to work with and he fought hard for me right to the end. I couldn’t have done it without him.
As a client of Mark and Brett, they helped me through a very difficult time in my life. No one is looking to get hurt at the the company they work for, but it’s good to know that there are attorneys out there like Mark & Brett Sherry. Because of their help, I was able to get good medical assistance to recover and get back to work. I always recommend their office to anyone in need of a great attorney. After getting to know them, they really make you feel that you are in good hands.
Thanks again for this life changing outcome, life is even better than it was.
