  3. I cannot thank Brad and the entire Kammholz Rossi team enough. I am so glad that I made the decision to have Brad represent me. I received an injury at work that would be a life changing event for me and my family. I needed to find an attorney that would look out for me and my family. After meeting with a few law firms I chose Brad and his firm. Brad was truly concerned with my injury and what was best for me and my family. Too many of the law firms I met with were only concerned with what they could get from a settlement. Brad is truly concerned with what is best for you. He will listen to all of your thoughts and concerns, and advise you on what actions would be best. Trust is a very important part of a relationship in a legal action. I trusted Brad and his firm. I always knew that Brad truly was looking out for what was best for me and my family. You will not regret having Brad and his entire firm represent you. Everyone there is very pleasant, friendly, casual and yet professional. Their approach helps reduce the stress and tension that comes with a bad situation. Over the twenty two months that Brad represented me, we developed a friendship. I consider Brad a friend and look forward to continuing that friendship for a long time. On behalf of me and my family we cannot thank-you enough for everything that you and your firm have done for us. Truly the best decision made in a bad situation.
