From our clients
Where do I start? Craig was referred to me by one of his colleagues, and fellow law school student. I have worked with many attorneys over my 23 years as a Trooper for the Washington State Patrol, and new my career as an investigator for law firm in Florida. He is top notch hands down. Best of the best. Craig took my case, read it over thoroughly. He developed reasonable strategies, giving my family and I realistic expectations of the my case and its possible outcome. No smoke and mirrors. Throughout the entire case, Craig and his legal spent countless hours working on my case, ending in the best scenario possible. He kept me informed, asked my opinion, didn't go rogue, and had my best interests at the forefront at all times. Craig always made himself available at anytime for my questions and and status of my case.I would recommend Craig 100% Not only do I trust Craig, both as a professional in the legal field, but more importantly, I consider him a true life long friend. I learned a lot from Craig throughout the journey in my case.A great man. Wish there were more attorneys like him.
“My husband was diagnosed with mesothelioma, and we reach out to Kaitlin to represent us, we are so grateful we did. Kaitlin not only knows everything about asbestos law, but she was the most caring attorney we’ve dealt with. This was a difficult time for us, but Kaitlin made us feel we could leave it up to her."
Luke and his team (especially Ann O'Neil) went above and beyond to support my mom and our family through a lawsuit that the defendants dragged on for much longer than we thought was possible. Throughout it all, Luke regularly kept us informed, made sure to explain the issues in plain terms, patiently answered our questions, and handled our emotional displays (when things looked dire) with compassion and professionalism. He made sure to be realistic about setting our expectations, but at the same time was so tenacious that we never doubted that he was doing his utmost to keep the case moving forward. We have complete confident in his skills as a lawyer and his genuineness as a person. Because of Luke, our case was concluded successfully and exceeded our expectations.
It was a pleasure working with Tom Breen. He was always thoughtful, kind, and thorough while helping us navigate the arcane (often obscene) labyrinth of the legal system. We feel lucky to have a friend in him, and in SGB.
