A Letter from Steven and Katherine Nahl
In November 2009, my father-in-law Chuck was diagnosed with Mesothelioma, a rare cancer caused by asbestos. He was a railroad worker for 39 years. After his diagnosis, we started researching law firms who specialize in this field and my daughter-in-law came upon your firm while researching for us on the internet. We contacted your firm and we were put in contact with Ms. Jennifer Lucarelli. It was a breath of fresh air and relief for us to have her helping us. She flew out to our father-in-law's apartment in St. Paul, and he was immediately taken with her down to earth personality. She laid everything out such as time lines as to how this type of lawsuit proceeds and she was very honest and up front in everything she explained to us.
Sadly, we lost Chuck on August 2, 2010. He was able to hold the first of the proceeds checks from one of the companies that Jennifer helped us recover. All he said was, “I can’t believe it” with tears in his eyes. He thought this may all have been a waste of time, but thanks to Jennifer and her associates, we were able to prove him wrong and he passed knowing everyone would be taken care of.
