- A.S.

“Being a veteran and a mother, I never experienced pain until I was in an accident – regaining conscience I woke up inside a hospital. I met Rita Phillips, black and blue, tired, sore and depressed, Avera and Smith help me by rebuilding my life, self-confidence and literally washing away tears. If it wasn’t for Avera and Smith where would I be?? Attorney Mark Avera changed my life . . . fighting for me when I couldn’t fight for myself. I THANK GOD for people like them, each individual in this law firm makes a difference, you become family, and you get a second chance. Thank you for being everything I couldn’t even imagine.”

- T.B.

“I was driving and slowed down for a stopped school bus when a lady hit me from behind going 45 miles per hour. She didn’t even slow down. I had to have surgery on my neck and then a lot of physical therapy. I didn’t think I needed an attorney, but the insurance company wouldn’t pay me what I owed on my car and they wouldn’t pay my medical bills. When I tried to figure things out it was just overwhelming.

A friend recommended me to Avera & Smith. I met with Ben (Steinberg) who handled everything. They did it all! Even when I thought we were done, they gave me another check!”

- T.M.

“Returning phone calls, being honest about my case, and asking before going through with anything is what sets Avera and Smith apart from other firms.”

- J.K.

“Avera and Smith fought to get me a top-dollar settlement.”

- M.B.
