Jacqueline Small is diligent, professional, and compassionate. She went above and beyond when I was injured in a motor vehicle accident. Anytime I had questions she would respond quickly and always seemed to be one step ahead. I called several accident law firms and none were as knowledgeable and sincere as Jacqueline. Highly recommended!
I would totally recommend this law group. Renn handled my case with the utmost professionalism kept me informed throughout and explained in easy to understand layman's terms. I am very happy with how things worked out. I would highly recommend if you ever need a lawyer to contact him. Great job and a big thank you to all.
Over a period of 4 years Jacqueline Small guided me throughout the entirety of my personal injury claim after a motor vehicle accident left me with chronic pain. My experience was pleasant, professional, thorough, and communication was always open. I was treated with care like a person and not just a case. Jacqueline was with me every step of the way until we reached a settlement with the insurance company. 10/10 I would recommend to any friends or family.
