"My experience with the Krupp Law Firm was second to none. There was more focus of my health and my future health needs that I ever expected. The follow up, just to see how I was doing with recovery and physical therapy was appreciated greatly. I was unsure at the beginning, but Jim explained everything in detail as we proceeded and I never felt pressured. I recommend this firm to all my friends and family members."
