I was on a team-building retreat for my employer in July of 2014. While participating in a hike during the retreat, I was injured and hurt my ankle. While the insurance company paid for my initial physical therapy, they denied my request to pay for a follow-up surgery and subsequent medical expenses. As the bills mounted, I had to get help; I called Danielle Bird. Read More

Why I Became a
Know Your Rights
Personal Injury Attorney

I have always been an advocate for the underdog. In sports, I always root for the team playing to beat the odds. I became a lawyer because I saw the power in using the legal system to help people in need, people who are "underdogs" when up against insurance companies and big corporations. It is true that bad things happen to good people, and through my legal knowledge and experience, it truly satisfies me to even the playing field and find justice for my clients.

Danielle Bird was very professional and worked hard to make sure I was compensated fairly for my injury. My case was difficult to prove, but she continued to move forward and supported me through the process. I would highly recommend her for Workers' Compensation claims.

Danielle Bird did a great job and she was very aggressive on getting things done. I was always informed what was going on. Very personal and especially when she was going through a maternity on leave. Still worked on my case no matter what. She is a true warrior in my opinion. When you as a client are suffering from the injustices from your work place, work comp, insurance you need someone who will fight for you like a "wolverine". This law firm is titled best super lawyers for a reason.

In need of a personal injury attorney? Well you're if you're reading this you're in the right place. You'd be hard pressed to find more competent attorneys than the ones here at SiebenCarey.

They took my case to trial and an amazing job presenting the facts and fighting for my best interests! Three years ago I was unsure of what my future would bring; now that it's over I can rest a bit easier. With SiebenCarey as my counsel, I believe I had the absolute BEST representation a person could've asked for. I knew that I wanted the absolute best representation when searching for an attorney to handle my case and I most definitely received it.

If you need a personal injury attorney, look no further. Can't recommend highly enough.

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.
