I throughly enjoyed working with Erik and the Child & Jackson firm. I was unfortunate enough to be in an automobile accident, him and his team really took care of me and helped me win my case. I am satisfied with all the help and the outcome of the lawsuit. I would definitely work with Child & Jackson if the time comes again. Thank you for everything.

Child & Jackson came highly recommended and did a great job. Unfortunately, after my case settled for coverage maximum, I was in need of their services again. I didn’t even consider going anywhere else. Very caring people.

I was referred to Child & Jackson from a family/friend who had a good experience with them. To my surprise, I actually got to meet and speak with Mr. Child, who was so down to earth (we all know how attorneys can be intimidating). Mr. Child assured me he and his team will take care of me and they kept their words.
