I would highly recommend recommend this lawyer
I I hired Mr. Whitson after being in a car accident . Someone had hit my car , damaging my car and hurting my neck. Mr. Whitson helped me with costs for collateral damage and medical bills for my injury . He was very helpful and thorough in his work. Also, Mr. Whitson is easy to speak with- very friendly .
