Client Review of Robert Lantzy

Mr. Lantzy started working on the case immediately. He tracked down eyewitnesses and even found out where the woman who hit me had been drinking. He even subpoenaed her credit card bills, the bar records, and bar surveillance video. We were amazed at how hard he was investigating my case. In addition, he helped with getting all of my medical bills and no-fault insurance benefits paid.

We filed a lawsuit against the drunk driver and it moved quickly. I was surprised when Mr. Lantzy called to tell me that he was able to get the insurance company to pay the full $ 500,000.00 insurance limits to me. Everything was handled in a first class manner and we were kept updated every step of the way. I am grateful that we found the law firm and Mr. Lantzy and that we chose them for my case.
