“Mr. Oshman sounded like an attorney I wanted to hire after speaking with him and hearing his extensive knowledge on my problem. I was in pain and times were hard. He helped me understand some of the complex science, how the laws were working, and assured me I wasn’t the only one suffering (from a company’s defective product). He resolved my case and kept me informed along the way. It is nice to be comfortable and enjoying life again. All my family can say is “thank you!”” – Julie H. – California
