    "To whom it may concern:
    I had a serious MVA, resulting in a permanent and painful low back injury. After four years of trying to get my attorney to do something about the claim, my attorney's secretary informed me one day, that he had moved out of state, and that my case doctor had died. The attorney's office could not locate my file. At this time I contacted Murray Bilfield who took over my case. He was able to locate and recover my file from the A Dead Record@ section of the County Courthouse. In spite of these handicaps, Murray was able to revive my case, negotiate with the insurance company, and we were able to settle out the case for 90% of the insurance coverage.
    Without reservation, I would recommend Murray Bilfield, and have, to anyone in need of an excellent, skilled attorney."
