Last year, I was involved in a serious car accident in Florida. A friend recommended Brian Zorn . As I was injured and hit in the rear by a huge motor home, I needed advice. Brian was so friendly and caring. As the accident happened in Florida, he found a law office there to help me. We had numerous phone conversations and he invited me to his office to answer questions. A good man and I would recommend him.
