Fred D. Poisson, Jr. Testimonials

I was in a bad accident and heard from many people that the attorneys and staff at Poisson, Poisson & Bower are good people.  Mr. Fred [Poisson] had previously helped my brother when he was injured so I called and hired them to help me.  Everyone that worked there was nice to me and would accommodate me anyway they could.  I would and have recommended others to hire the Poissons if they ever get injured.  Fred and Davis Poisson helped in any way they could.  They gave good advice and advised me not to settle my case for less than it was worth.  Davis and Stewart Poisson worked really good as a team and tried my case and I was really happy with the final outcome.

A friend told me to call Fred Poisson, Jr. and that he would tell me my options about my case and do what’s best for me. My experience was very pleasant, he and his staff went out of their way to make me feel comfortable every time I was there. I would tell friends and family to call and talk to Mr. Poisson and form their own opinions, and I’m sure they would see what I saw and would choose Poisson, Poisson & Bower. What’s not to like about Mr. Poisson, he was a friend and someone you liked whenever you first met him.
