"I was walking across the street when I was hit by a vehicle, The car left me injured, unconscious, and lying in the street. My friend referred me to William Mattar. I met with my car accident attorney Lori Hickey while in the hospital’s intensive care unit. Lori has been great to me. I was treated very well by everyone at the firm. My case outcome was better than I could have imagined. I would definitely refer William Mattar to another person."
