Don't know what I would have done if not for Mr. Fallgatter and Jeff. They are knowledgeable and compassionate, and most of all GET THE JOB DONE.

Tammie Beyerlein

Mr. Fallgatter, I can’t thank you enough for all of your help. I shudder to think what could have happened if I hadn’t sought out your assistance. I also realize that you really gave me a break with your fees and my situation was not the high caliber cases you normally deal with. Thank you again sir.

Bill Parham

I wanted to thank Lisa and Jeff very much for all you have done for me and my case.  Words cannot express my gratitude and appreciation to you both, as well as the firm you represent.  In the worst hours of my life to date, you helped me when I needed help the most.  I am extremely blessed with the outcome of the case.
