My family and I came to Terrell and Hogans office about 4 years ago after meeting with 3 other firms here in Jacksonville. My family and I suffered a great loss, our father. He was killed by physician's negligence. Wayne Hogan had me meet with Chris Shakib, Mr. Hogan and Chris changed my families life forever and selecting their firm to work with was a defining moment is my families life.
Over a period of 3 years Chris worked on our case incurring several hundred thousand dollars in expenses for our case, yes hundreds of thousands of dollars in just expenses they they paid for in advance, something we could have never done. I cant even image the number of hours Chris spent work on our case. In the end Chris finally reached the goal we all hoped for, the physician paid for his crime. Although justice is never possible when it involves a death, Chris made it so that my little brother doesn't have to worry about paying for college and the rest of my siblings have some kind of financial peace.
We had many opportunities over the years settle the case and be done with it but I followed Chris' advice and we kept at the defendant and the co-defendants, fighting the case to the very end. The amount of evidence and expert witness that his team produced was utterly amazing, the more I learned about the facts involving my fathers death showed me why Chris was so adamant that we not accept a simple "leave us a alone pay off" that most attorneys would have happily encouraged us to take.
Chris was passionate about our case and passionate about his work, he showed me the evidence, he taught me a great deal, which truly help me understand the complicated chain of events that led to my fathers death. He showed me that circumstances of my fathers death were not an accident but a string of negligence that all the defendants tried very hard to play off. In the end they came to realize the facts and that they had no chance at winning in front of the jury. They lost and they lost badly. Chris' and Mr. Hogans hard work and commitment changed the course of my families life. We will all be eternally grateful for their passionate work and their personal dedication to do the right thing. If anyone reading my review would like to email me I would happily share details of my experience.
