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.

The Ruth Law Team was there for me from the day of my accident to the very end. The day after my accident they sent an investigator to my home to get the details of the accident. Which was amazing because I was in so much pain there is no way I could have gone to their office. They fought for me every step of the way and I am eternally grateful. They literally had to do so much work on my behalf. I can't thank them enough for turning a very traumatic event in my life into a supportive and nurturing experience. Nicole was my go to and she was phenomenal. She checked on me regularly and kept me up to date on the case. Thank you!
