Helpful, Patient, Caring
I am a client of the offices of Frank D. Azar. My attorney [Desi] was so helpful, patient and caring with me during the time of my recovery from a car accident. Whenever I had a question or concern, she made herself available to give me the answers and guidance I needed. She gave me amazing advice that made me feel very confident in my lawsuit claim. She has stellar credentials and many years of experience. As my attorney, Desi, never made me feel as if I was just ‘another client’ in her busy schedule. She was a wonderful listener gleaning lots of information about me for my case. My case has now settled, and I am very pleased with the outcome of Desi’s efforts. I would not hesitate to use the team at Frank Azar’s office again if I needed to.
It was the best decision to call the office of Frank Azar & Associates to handle my car accident. Dezi LaCrue was the Attorney on my case and she was phenomenal. She was timely in updating me through the whole process and excellent communication when explaining my options on how to proceed. Dealing with insurance companies can be daunting so I’m very thankful to her and her team for all they do.
