Highly recommend Attorney Chris Corzo and his paralegal, Cayley Escher – such a great team and pleasant to work with.  Chris provides competent, confident representation. Cayley is the perfect combination of professional and personable. I truly appreciate how my case was handled.  Chris and Cayley communicate timely & respectfully with thorough updates. I never had to wonder what was going on and could focus on treatment. I hope to never again need a personal injury attorney, but if I do, would definitely want to hire Chris Corzo.

Once it was time to pick up my settlement, I actually met Mr. Gordon himself, which was a great experience. THANK YOU so much to Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys for settling my case!!!
