They Are Like a Family to Me

Video Transcript

Hi, my name is Sherrie. I just settled my case. I've been with Block O'Toole & Murphy since 2012. All I can say is that they're like a family. There's never been a time that I couldn't come here and talk about what was going on with me. It felt comfortable. And I've always walked out knowing that everything was going to be okay. I never looked behind my back worrying if the lawyer was there for me or if they were there for money. You know, they're just family.

I had the world's greatest lawyer: Mr. Scott Occhiogrosso. The world's greatest lawyer.

I get emotional thinking about it...I can't explain how I feel. But, I feel good. I would recommend them to anybody. They do a great job.
