We know that we ultimately won an award largely because Lynn truly understood and was able to represent the impact this accident had on our family.I was in a major car accident and reached out for legal representation. My family was very fortunate to connect with Mr. Lynn Laufenberg and his team. We had never been involved in injury litigation until this accident and were uncertain about the process. Lynn took the time to understand our personal situation and our intention to be compensated fairly. He was thoughtful and timely in his communication and ensured we always understood the state of the case. Every step of the process was explained honestly and in detail. When the insurance company was not willing to make a fair settlement, Lynn and his team did not hesitate to present our case for decision by a jury at trial. We know that we ultimately won an award largely because Lynn truly understood and was able to represent the impact this accident had on our family. We are extremely grateful and highly recommend Lynn for personalized legal guidance.

I am grateful for Mr. Laufenberg's help and would definitely recommend him to anyone faced with a similar situation.I am grateful for Mr. Laufenberg's help and would definitely recommend him to anyone faced with a similar situation. I had been paying off a divorce and health costs after I lost my insurance as part of my divorce. So when a car accident happened to me just two blocks from work, I thought I was finished. This would do me in financially, I thought, as I waited in my vehicle, which turned out to be totaled. I had sustained injuries and could not get out and walk away. My boss suggested that I talk to Attorney Lynn Laufenberg. Mr. Laufenberg helped me get through the process of dealing with the other driver's insurance company who was trying to get me to accept part of the blame. With his help I was able to rent another vehicle that I was eventually able to purchase, and I was able to get treated for my injuries and get healthy while the settlement was pending. It settled eventually and all the medical costs were paid at that time. Mr. Laufenberg had entered into agreements with the medical professionals treating me so that I did not receive any harassing phone calls for payment in the interim, and his assistance meant all the difference between staying solvent and going under. Today I am healthy, bill-free from the accident and have a vehicle to replace the one I lost. I am grateful for Mr. Laufenberg's help and would definitely recommend him to anyone faced with a similar situation. hank you again for your help. It is great relief to have it settled and be water under the bridge. I appreciate it.
