My experience with Schackow and Mercadante was amazing. Mr. Gerald Schackow was very informative from the beginning to the end. Mrs. Amy Hogue kept me informed along the way and always replied to any question or concern I had in a timely manner. I also received a full settlement in less than six months. I really recommend Schackow and Mercadante. They will most definitely get your case settled and do their very best for their clients. The client needs are their top priority. I had one of the best experiences in my life after retaining Schackow and Mercadante. I'm confident that they will get all their clients claims settled and do their very best for their clients.
