"Good to read and get a better idea of things."
"The more I read, the more I understand things about the law."
"Mr. Young was very good at explaining the law in a understandable way."
"I've searched for written law on the Jones Act and Maritime law on the internet. All of my searches result in law offices. Your company has taught me things I didn't know and I recently gave your number and website to a fellow injured worker. He didn't know that he could use his own doctor and that the company would have to pay for it. Something I learned from your videos."
"Excellent information that will prove valuable in the event of injury on or around the water. If an injury occurs you will get a call."
"Until received, I struggled to understand the concepts 'maintenance' and 'cure'."
"…My inquiry into the Jones Act was about travel pay. I have not had an accident. But I am grateful for all the info you did send me. It will be helpful if I ever do have an injury."
"…Keep it up and let everyone know what their rights are."
"...I had very little knowledge about my rights... you have shared a lot. All for nothing. Your dedicated time and efforts to guide us on the true path when it is needed the most. Thank you very much."
"...Enjoyed the information sent by mail...pretty useful info.
"The Young Firm did a great job for me and I would highly recommend them. The office staff was courteous and knowledgeable, (the industry specific professional consultants) are some of the best in their fields, and Tim's courtroom savvy is an art form. The Young Firm allowed me to focus on my recovery by limiting the times I had to travel to New Orleans by bunching depositions, consultant visits, etc. together.
