When I got the call that my husband was electrocuted and tragically lost his life while at work, I was in shock and didn’t know where to turn for help. I am so grateful we found Liam Duffy as our lawyer. He immediately stepped in during our darkest hour with a plan of action that not only helped us through all the fears and unknowns, but he quickly identified the responsible parties, aggressively pursued our case, and made them pay.
