We talked to Amy Catledge after the accident. We gave The Ruth Law Team the go-ahead to represent us. The car accident was in Nov. 2022. A settlement was reached in Jan. 2023 which was earlier than I thought it would be. Patti Olson worked with us and helped us go through some very trying times. It should be noted - Amy was very honest and kept all her promises. Thank you for all your help.
