“Michael was an invaluable resource for me when evaluating both the liability and damages phases of my disability insurance claim against my insurance carrier who would not pay for the time I was unable to go back to work. I realized there was not a huge financial incentive for Michael but was grateful that he was willing to take on my case, as “I was medically and physically disabled. He was extremely professional, candid, and insightful on approaching the issues which resulted in the insurance carrier realizing that a lawsuit with merit was a valid possibility.
His familiarity and prior legal dealings with the insurance carrier as well as his ability to work with the medical professionals involved in my care were instrumental in my decision to request Michael’s representation. His attention to detail was wonderful; he reviewed my medical records thoroughly and carefully researched information from other similar claims to make our points stronger. Rather than turning a deaf ear as the insurance carrier had done to me, they listened to Michael’s presentation of the relevant facts and were persuaded to accept their legal responsibility without us having to go to court. There is no doubt in my mind that Michael’s expertise and talent resulted in this successful outcome of my case.
Michael Horrow is very thorough, personable, and caring. I would highly recommend him without hesitation.”
