When most of us were young most of us were taught to not get in a car with a stranger and in 2021 many of us do this without giving it a second thought. Your safety is paramount when you request any ridesharing service. If you have any reason whatsoever to question the driver you are assigned please decline that ride and request another driver.

Never in my life did I think I would recommend an attorney. Somehow God sent this angel of an attorney to assist me in my personal injury lawsuit. I was told by lawyers in Bakersfield that my lawsuit was frivolous because there was money in it.

I live in Elk Grove where we don’t always have a lot of choices. Lawyers are one area where we have few good choices. I wanted to work with a local law firm after my motorcycle accident, and I chose Glenn Guenard and Ross Bozarth.
