“I got injured after I was rear ended by a tractor trailer. I initially consulted with an attorney who was a family friend who told me I would be lucky to walk away with $2,000. Thankfully, I chose to get a second opinion The Barnes Firm and attorney Jordan Finkelstein. Jordan and the team at The Barnes Firm did a fantastic job from start to finish, were always responsive, answered all my questions, and genuinely cared about my interest. Best of all The Barnes Firm got me an enormous settlement and I walked away with hundreds of times more than I was originally told by the first attorney I consulted with!”
