Ultimate goal and maximum settlement
“I worked with Rich at Carlisle and Byers on my claim for about 8 months. Rich achieved the ultimate goal and got the maximum settlement amount available for my claim. Rich took my claim seriously, and laid out each option clearly along with the consequences of each choice, and that is what I expected and wanted from my legal counsel.”
Don’t have to worry
“The most positive thing about working with Carlisle and Byers would be the communication that I have, the answers to my questions, and the speed in which they get answers. I don’t have to worry about what’s going on with my L and I claim.”
“Chris was so truthful. Anything that happens he’s right on the phone calling me. He’s even gone to a couple of appointments with me just for moral support. They are interested in how I’m doing, how I’m feeling, what I’m doing, and whether or not I’m getting the medications I need. It’s just been a really great experience.”
