Those “Wrong Way” signs on the entrance ramp. All those cars coming at you honking their horns and flashing their lights. If the woman noticed, she didn’t seem to care.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING

"Unfortunately, I had a a slip and fall incident and it left me in a situation where I struggled to support my family and I really had no idea what my rights were. Thankfully, someone recommended DHD, specifically Jeremy Puglia, and it was the best decision I could have made. I was able to focus on getting better while he made certain no one took advantage of me or the situation. He listened to what I felt was fair and why, discussed it all with me and fought for me. I would NOT want to be up against him in a court room. Some people were made to defend others and he is one of them for sure!"
