“My experience with McDivitt Law Firm was excellent! They treated me with dignity and respect Chrystal my case manager was excellent. She was always very quick to get back with me with questions about my case and always is very courteous. Mr Carl Zielinski ESQ was very good at his job. He dealt with the workers’ comp company and made sure they were not taking advantage of me while treating me with respect. Carl was very courteous and quickly answered any questions that I had. I would come back to this law firm if I ever had another case to work on. Thank You McDivitt Law Firm!!” –  S.H., Pueblo, CO
