"My workers' compensation claim was denied. A friend advised me to talk to Bill Senter. I did and he took my case. Eventually, Bill convinced the comp carrier that I should be compensated and I was. What impressed me, is that to Bill and his staff, it made no difference that my case was small dollar-wise. They still put forth the effort necessary to give me a successful outcome. Bill trusted me as a client and I trusted him to do what was best for me. So glad I did.”

-Barbara Melvin

"My husband was a month away from retirement, 30 years with the same employer. He had a serious accident at work that rendered him totally disabled. Worker’s compensation denied his claim. We were devastated and at a loss as to what to do. We contacted Bill Senter. He filed our claim, tried our case and succeeded in obtaining for my husband all of his benefits and medical treatment. Bill was dedicated to us and his and the staff’s hard work turned a potentially emotional and financial disaster for us into one of hope and security. We are forever grateful.”
