"On what I thought was a simple trip down the expressway, I lost my husband in a fatal car crash. My brother took me to Busald Funk Zevely. I am very happy that I took this important case to them. My lawyer was always available to discuss my questions and to handle my concerns. He worked with me on all of my problems and helped me through a very hard time. The settlement will provide security for my family. Busald Funk Zevely did a great job for me"
