Both Mr. Schackow and Teresa, were kind, informative, diligent, and highly responsive. They walked me through an accident injury case with a great deal of compassion, kept me informed and optimistic when things dragged on, and finally got me a wonderful settlement. Through hard and persistent work they got me a more generous settlement than I had thought was possible. I very much appreciate them, and highly recommend them.
