Melinda's Story – "She saved my life"

You should have seen my lawyer in the courtroom…she didn't miss a thing. It was great watching her in action with her professional approach and credible composure. She and her team covered every angle and proved the accident wasn't my fault. The jury was obviously persuaded by her too when they returned a verdict which was more than 10 times the amount offered to me to settle the case prior to trial. Her name is Sue Holden and she was my lawyer.

I don't recall the moment of impact but they needed the jaws of life to extract me from my car. I was in and out of consciousness and going into shock. I never saw the other driver prior to the impact. I suffered a femur fracture and pelvic fractures which required surgery. I also suffered a cracked rib and significant lacerations to my face. Over 100 stitches were needed to re-attach my left ear and I had a gash from my hairline to my left eye that also required a lot of stitches.

From the time she appeared at my hospital bed all the way through trial, I was impressed with Sue and so fortunate to have her as my lawyer. The medical expenses incurred in saving my life were a huge burden and I just didn't know how I would recover from my injuries and debt. Fortunately, my dad called SiebenCarey and got me the most capable lawyer in the state of Minnesota. Sue saved my life. I tell others that I know the best and I refer them to SiebenCarey.

I have worked on cases with Sue Holden of Sieben Carey for over 20 years. As a trial attorney, I feel confident referring my clients with personal injury issues to Sue, as I know she and her team take the time to listen to their clients, explore and explain their options, monitor their recovery with compassion and persistently advocate for them in negotiations and in court. Sue has the utmost credibility in the legal community and an ability to resolve complex problems. She is highly respected by the courts as well as attorneys for her competence and steadfast dedication to helping injured people. I recommend working with Sue Holden and her team without reservation.

My family was referred to Susan Holden at SiebenCarey by our hometown attorney in a wrongful death case.  She was very accommodating to us and very approachable. Staff was top notch and doggedly pursued two different insurance companies to accomplish an outcome far beyond anything we'd anticipated. We could not have gotten results close to what she achieved without her. We will be forever appreciative.

I have referred several personal injury and wrongful death cases to Susan Holden for handling. Susan has been very professional in her approach to these cases and has obtained settlements on behalf of the clients. She also is very courteous, knowledgeable, and has a great "bedside manner" in dealing with her clients. Several clients have thanked me for referring their cases to Susan.

My boyfriend was hit by a car and while all the attorneys he talked to said he didn't have much chance of a case, SiebenCarey took him on and gave him a fighting chance. He's still recovering, but SiebenCarey is making it a lot easier.
