Your staff is fantastic from Terrie, Anne, Hadley to Steve! They traveled to Lockport for me. Sent papers over and over when I lost them! Had patience when I mixed up dates, doctors, schools, times, and even their names. They became like family who truly cared about my brain injury and family. They worked around the Army’s schedule and my ability to fly, yet acted as if we were never a burden. We were treated like we were their only case and I think every client must feel that way! I would recommend Faraci Lange to everyone!!
