I have worked with Shelley for many years now as a case manager on my serious injury cases. She is an excellent case manager with a real empathy for the client’s position and who always goes the extra mile for my clients and their families. She also has a good understanding of the litigation process. I enjoy working with Shelley but more importantly my clients benefit from her involvement in their recovery/rehab journey.
