Hear From Our Clients
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. Nothing will ever bring my children’s father back, but I am thankful that their futures are financially secure thanks to Mr. Duffy and the compassionate, hard-working team at Yarborough Applegate.

With David and his team, it never felt like business, it felt like family. Anytime I called, they had the answer. They put us in touch with doctors to ensure we were receiving the best care. David told us, ‘We’re here for you. We’re going to fight for you, and we’re going to win for you.’ They were and are here for us. Kerry Hernandez
