Client Testimonials:

"We had been attempting to resolve a case of identity fraud for two years. We attempted to deal directly with the company who opened an account to a client using our name. Unable to resolve the matter with the company and the credit collection agency who they turned the matter over to, we turned to legal advice from Doug Wartelle at Cogdill Nichols Rein Wartelle Andrews.

From the first meeting with Mr. Wartelle through the next few months the matter was treated in a very professional and efficient manner. The response of Mr. Wartelle resulted in an eventual dismissal of the case, A heavy load of stress was lifted from our lives. We are very thankful for Mr. Wartelle's expeditious and orderly help."

- Wayne B.

"Doug worked long and hard to get me compensation for my injury. He kept me informed of what was happening in the case and was there for me at my deposition. I am happy with the settlement I received and highly recommend Doug Wartelle and his staff."

David and I would like to thank you for the valuable assistance you provided to the two of us regarding a situation that from the beginning was very skeptical. We appreciate the time you took out of your very busy schedule to handle a small, but very important matter to us. If not for your professional research into our situation, things could have gone very wrong for us. Thank you again for your deft assistance and we are 100% sure that the next time we need an attorney, you will be the one we call! Absolutely no doubt about it! It was a true pleasure to work with you.

Respectfully submitted,

-Linda/David H.
