And your case doesn't get shunted to an associate or lost in a shuffle. You are important to us and we make ourselves accessible to you. That's why we offer flexible scheduling options, including occasional evening or weekend appointments, even hospital visits when required."

Dales III, PC is happy to serve as a mediator to assist you in economically and reasonably resolving your differences.
