    When my insurance company refused to honor my well documented claim after Hurricane Irma, I turned to Morgan and Morgan. The company accepted my case and it was assigned to Edson Briggs. He filed the lawsuit and after repeated negotiations, got a good settlement from the insurance company. However, the insurance company did not pay by the agreed upon date. In fact, they skipped 3 due dates. Mr. Briggs went after them again. Finally, they paid. Thanks to Mr. Briggs. He did a great job. Read less
