She treats me like family and I knew I could trust her judgement.From what was an extremely traumatic traffic accident that left me shocked, stressed, and emotionally shaken; Kerr & Sheldon took charge with the intricacies of dealing with the aftermath. I was able to focus on my healing, mentally and physically, while they took care of the rest. They were very clear the whole process in communicating with me and made sure to go above and beyond to help me get the best services I needed in repairs (car & myself).I’d also like to give a personal thank you to the receptionist I spoke with who prayed for my dog when she was very ill. Even though my stress and sadness of a sick pet was not their responsibility , she took the time to be there for me and help lift me up in the added stress of a motor accident. Unfortunately my poor baby passed away in April, I will never forget the prayer I received through the phone and the kindness and love I was given. That reflects on the whole team and I’m happy I decided to put my trust in them. Thank you!Taylor WassellTaylor Wassell ★★★★★ Russell and his team were great throughout the duration of my case.

They were very helpful in my casePatrick J ParryPatrick J Parry ★★★★★ Great group. I worked directly with Russell Kerr. Did exactly what they said and thensome. Was available to advise on any situation and properly guide me during the case to have a successful settlement. Their network of Doctors are great and the whole process was streamlined. All you had to do was tell them what you want and expected and they would advise accordingly and connect you with the proper specialist. Everything was handled through their network. From dealing with insurance companies paying the medical offices through their lien program and final proceeds. They even work hard to make sure the medical bills are reasonable. Highly recomend.Delilah Nina KoDelilah Nina Ko ★★★★★ My 2015 Porsche was in an accident and after it was repaired it wasn't worth as much as before. The insurance company said I couldn't recover for the diminished value. I hired Mr. Kerr and he helped me recover the value that my car lost in value.
