Nathan Reeves was absolutely amazing with our case! We were rear-ended by a drunk driver who was illegal and didn’t have a license and the truck did not belong to him. The three of us had to go to the chiropractor for many months for whiplash. We were kept updated throughout the case each week by Nathan and his team. He not only got all of our medical expenses covered, as well as the vehicle repairs, but each of us received a substantial settlement for pain and suffering. I would recommend Ruesch and Reeve to anyone!
Nathan Reeves is the best defense lawyer I could have asked for when it came to handling my case.!! From the moment I first met Nathan I knew he would do everything in his power to fight for me and get me the best possible outcome for my case and he did!! I could not have asked for a better lawyer and better communication and just everything in general. It was a situation I did not ever see myself being put in but he went to battle and fought hard to make sure I got the best outcome I could have asked for!! He is definitely the best defense lawyer in this town!!
Ben did a fantastic job not only with regard to handling court but also with putting my mind at ease. He answered all of my questions and concerns plus his legal team does an outstanding job. I would definitely recommend Ben as a lawyer who fights for you and follows through.
