Helpful, Results, Caring
Dezarae and her team of professionals with Frank Azar & Associates helped me recover a fair settlement from a devastating car accident, of which I was not at fault. All of the medical bills and hassle of following up with the insurance companies after this accident was handled by Dezarae and her amazing team of experts @ Frank Azar. This left me free to focus on my health and healing. I am grateful to Dezarae and her staff becasue they covered every detail that I might have missed and was unable to do myself. I was too injured to deal with the bills & insurance difficulties. I’d recommend Frank Azar & Associates to anyone who is involved in an accident. Now I’m back to work and enjoying the active lifestyle and sports that I adore.

Mrs. LaCrue and her team were amazing. This was my first time experiencing anything like this and from start to finish they were very helpful. They took my case and got it completely resolved in less time than I heard about with other cases and settled it for more than what I thought it would be worth. Mrs. LaCrue even when out of her way during the SNOW STORM to make sure I was taken care of and everything could be completed in a timely manner. Would definitely recommend anyone that gets into a car accident to ask for Mrs. LaCrue!! She’ll take care of you!!
Went above and beyond to make everything was went well with doctors’ appointments, surgery and anything else they could help with, I felt like I wasn’t just another case but more like family, you guys did everything in your power to make sure I was well taken care of. I really appreciate you guys and the love that you all showed during my daughter’s kidney transplant!!! Thanks again Desi and James.
