    I was very impressed with Mr. Bastress. He was persistent in getting a response from the car insurance company we were working with. His letters were punctual, all documents were well-organized and he persisted to get a settlement that I considered to be fair (and was even better than I could have hoped for). He called with updates frequently and ensured that all of my needs were met through a very complicated settlement process.
