Stephen is the most awesome personal injury lawyer! In January 2009 my car was in a rear-end collision while I was waiting at a red light. The driver who hit me was clearly at fault. I suffered a serious injury to my neck which caused months of physical therapy and medical treatment to this day, and will ultimately most probably lead to surgery. Stephen immediately took on my case and went to work in the most thorough, efficient and professional manner you can imagine. I have dealt with several lawyers in other areas of my life and none of them even came close to the level of commitment and expertise that Stephen Nagle has displayed in this personal injury case. Stephen has been battling my case with a level of tenacity that has been very impressive and has produced great results! He deliberates and communicates every step he takes in a timely and effective manner and pays great attention to detail while doing so. If you have been in an accident I highly recommend Stephen Nagle. He will go to bat for you and you will be in the hands of a great expert with a warm personality who has a high developed sense of integrity and compassion.
