My name is Carol R. On February 9th, 2005 I was in very a severe car accident. I was in the hospital almost four months. I ended up with severe brain damage and a lot of broken bones. Once home, we hired Shekter/Dychtenberg to represent me in our law suit. In June of 2012 they had made an offer which Alden didn’t feel was enough. I was willing to accept it, but thank god Alden talked me out of it. In December of 2012 they made and offer for the full amount. I am just so very thankful that I listen to Alden and received everything that was coming to me.
