“We found Bill, Karen and Kristen to be very knowledgeable and helpful in seeking an insurance settlement following a vicious dog attack. Another law firm wasn’t willing to help unless we could determine if the dog owner had insurance, but Lerners offered their expertise to sort all that out from their end. From that point on, they took care of all the necessary steps to obtain an appropriate settlement. We are grateful for their expertise and highly recommend their firm.”
