Thank you from the bottom of my heart, you are a lawyer extraordinaire. Adjective; outstanding or remarkable in a particular capacity.
Two years ago, I made an appointment with Levinson Axelrod to talk about my accident. I made the appointment with the mindset that this was just a "let's be on the safe side" move. I am just going to have a conversation and see how this works and if I really need a lawyer. It turned out to be the wisest move I have ever made. I really needed a lawyer. I got a team. Levinson Axelrod was on my side and by my side. On that first day in the Forked River office, I was visibly nervous and I did not feel very well physically. Debra greeted me with a smile and I will never forget what she said, "you are in good hands". I thought wow, ok. By the end of my meeting with Kim the decision was made. I thought to myself, what a gal I really like her! Kim, you were thorough and explained the process and you have listening skills. Not everyone has listening skills.
From that point forward, the professional manner in which I was treated along with the caring attitude on the part of every single staff member I came in contact with was remarkable. The guidance I received in a patient caring manner was above and beyond. Kim, I sent you an e mail on a Saturday morning while the thought was fresh in my mind thinking you would see it on Monday. While home flipping a pancake for your kids on that Saturday morning you answered me immediately. Above and beyond.
Every time I entered the Forked River office the receptionist Debra smiled and was warm and friendly. When I was in pain and felt alone and would walk into that office to be greeted with a smile and a sincere how are you? Made a world of difference. There were times I would leave the office laughing after talking and joking with staff who made me feel so at home. When I needed help with social security disability you and David Cook were there for me every step of the way. David held my hand and said, it's ok this is what I do, call me or e mail with anything. Other lawyers don't say that. He answered my e-mails and spoke to me in a kind manner. Menya and Donna are top notch and their expedient response to my e-mails and phone calls were also appreciated. The injuries I sustained as a result of my accident were causing my life to change and I never could have handled it without your understanding, help and direction.
It is just over two years and my case has settled with great satisfaction. As this chapter in my life comes to a close with a grateful heart I say thank you Kim and staff.
Not all lawyers office' are created equal. I have had previous experience with other firms for other reasons. Levinson Axelrod makes the statement in commercials "We are your neighbor" Never have more true words been spoken.
