I recommend Greene & Schultz without hesitation. After my accident, every we asked suggested we call them and I'm so glad we listened. They were incredibly easy to work with, gave us a great outcome, and were also just super nice. I never felt like they were trying to rush us through -- in fact, Betsy took more time than I ever expected reassuring us and answering every little question that came up. Plus, they ended up dealing with a small case that occurred before my big accident for no cost. Greene & Schultz are just good people!
