What Our Clients Have To Say

Very professional, made us feel relaxed & comfortable. Treated us with respect and fought hard for what we deserved. Highly recommended!

Will Rambo and his paralegal, Jenna Landis, were absolutely wonderful to work with following a car accident. They always kept me up-to-date with the case, and kindly answered my questions. I’m so grateful for all that they’ve done, and I cannot recommend them enough! Hopefully I won’t be needing their services in the future, but if I do I know I’ll be choosing them to represent me again.

On the basis of Mark Altemose’s handling of my personal injury case, I give him my highest recommendation. You simply can’t do better. I was involved in a bicycle accident in a section of the road undergoing construction. My case was complicated for many reasons, and because of the strength of the case that Mark established, the insurance company settled for a monetary amount very close to what Mark predicted. A couple of other reasons for recommending Mark: 1) Mark pursued every possible direction to obtain information providing me with the best likelihood of a positive outcome. 2) Mark could recall extensive knowledge of my case without notes, including a better knowledge of my past medical history than I had. I have no doubt he would have been an incredible trial lawyer if the need had arisen. 3) He, in fact, has won awards from his professional associations for his professional accomplishments; and also “gives back” by serving his professional organizations in a variety of official capacities and by mentoring up-and-coming younger lawyers. He clearly is a leader in his field. 4) It was obvious to me that Mark also has the highest ethical standards.
