Client Testimonials

  1. When my wife had a bad fall while we were vacationing in Panama City Beach, I reached out to Mr. Cliff Higby and Mr Kevin Barr for guidance. They responded with more information and support than i could have imagined. They were very patient and addressed all of my questions and concerns promptly. We were able to work with them through email from our home in Canada and our case was brought to a more than fair settlement. They and their staff were very gracious and understanding and helped us through one of the most difficult times in our life. We highly recommend this firm to anyone needing legal advice.
