    Unfortunately in 2015 my husband and were involved in a horrific accident that was not our fault. Fortunately Stephen Wade was referred to us and there are not enough words to thank him! Not only was he extremely knowledgeable, he was kind and caring. I having no experience in any of this and suffering from Traumatic Brain Injury always had questions, Steve and his staff were always available for me! I would highly recommend them and cannot thank them enough.

    Speaking both as a former judge and as a very experienced 3-state trial and general practice lawyer myself, I have concluded that Attorney Wade is the most thorough, comprehensive, strategic and insightful attorney I have ever known, in all respects. His legal work and interactions with tribunals, opposing counsel and his clients are as focused, respectful, professional and effective as can possibly be.

    Mr. Wade did an outstanding job representing us. In one short year of litigation, our law suit was over and we recovered all of our monies and his fees before we even went to court. It doesn't get much better than that! My husband and I highly recommend Mr. Wade to represent persons with insurance related issues. He is very knowledgeable in his field. He is confident, speaks clearly and precise, knows rulings of other cases and is very professional. We would definately hire him again!
