    I had been lied to by My previous orthopedist and when i found I was the recipient of a faulty medical device ,no other doctors would see me. I ended up calling Stuart mostly just to find a doctor that his clients may have seen about problems similar to mine. He was very nice even though I wasnt a client and his office provided me some names to choose from. He asked if I would be interested in learning more about these cases and enlightened me to the fact that the manufacturer wasnt paying for the medical costs related to my problem as my orthopedist had told me.Stuart drove from an appointment in San Francisco clear up to my house in northern california just to sit and explain what I was up against. He showed real concern for me and my wife about our future and my health. His office provided me with quick important information from the FDA and other sources that saved me from continuing to let my body be damaged by this implant.They basically saved my vision and kidneys by giving me info that showed the damage this metal in my system was causing. I was well represented and Stuart gave me invaluable assistance in going through this process. He took his time along with his staff to explain everything and answered all my questions. He and Karen give attorneys a good name you might say. I am glad I signed on with them to represent me and if ever I need this kind of help again,I will be calling them only. Read less
