All positive reviews I had read before about Dale from SL came out to be true. Dale's long term service dealing with injured people and transacting with insurance companies has put him in the category of the best experienced lawyers in our society. After my car accident l suffered quite a bit including financial setbacks. I couldn't do my physical challenging jobs, and that meant bills pilling up on my bed side table. Then Dale got me a good settlement which paid all my bills, plus compensation for my prior injuries. I will, when given a chance, recommend Dale to my family and relatives including my friends.
