After reading about Faraci Lange on their website, I completed their contact form. Shortly after that Kristin Merrick of Faraci Lange contacted me and scheduled an appointment to meet with her and Brian Zorn. What impressed me most at our meeting was that Brian and Kristin interviewed me to see if they wanted to take my case. It was nothing like the lawyer who called me and claimed he could get me lots of money. They were honest, and upfront about what I could expect. Through the entire process, they were compassionate and empathetic. I grew to trust them. They had my best interest in mind; I could tell by the way they responded to my questions and concerns. When it came time to negotiate a settlement, feeling I could trust them I asked their advice. They made the settlement process painless. I highly recommend them.

Extremely helpful with all my concerns. Having Kristin Merrick as my attorney placed my mind at ease and I know my other attorney couldn’t represent me any better than she did.
