Kristy Hansen’s Qualifications and Affiliations
Thank you for representation that was above and beyond what I expected to receive. Words cannot express how grateful I am. Mr. Moorley was sensitive, professional, patient, and knowledgeable. This process was, at times, difficult for me and sometimes painful. But I was in good hands as Mr. Moorley is one of the most hard working and sincere people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. It was apparent to me that he cared about the outcome as much as I did. Mr. Moorley has my deepest respect and admiration. I would recommend Mr. Moorley and the White Macgillivray Lester Firm to anyone needing an injury lawyer.
I've never had to deal with something like this before, so I was completely out of my element. Thank you. If I require any legal assistance, I'll for sure be in contact with you again.
I would like to warmly thank you for your immense kindness and your listening since the first days after the accident. I will never forget you. THANK YOU !
Thank you for your time, care, compassion and commitment you demonstrated over the past months. Working with you gave me peace of mind and allowed me the time to work on myself and get better.
You set this country boy's heart at ease and made it possible for me to tell my story. Thank you for going to bat with me with the insurance company. It is so good to know there are good people who really care about little people like me.
That is awesome news, which I am obviously not used to getting these days. This clearly demonstrates that I chose the right firm to represent me and the extraordinary hard work that you and your team have done.
If you are contacting a personal injury lawyer, chances are it has been one of the worst days of your life. Peter provided my family and me with guidance and support during and after the worst day of my life. I am forever grateful and touched by the relationship built between Peter and my family and I believe that I owe my recovery to him.
All I can say is Super Heroes!! When I needed their professional help, they helped with all the right answers!
Peter WILL get the job done. He defends the underdog. He is approachable, considerate and determined in getting the job done. Peter went to bat for me, which gave me peace of mind.
I just can’t imagine my life if it weren’t for Rose and Dan. So thank you for being by my side and sticking with me while I was going through those awfully difficult times
Without you and all your expert guidance I do not know where my mental health would have gone, such was the stress caused by the insurance company. I consider you, Mr. Jeffrey Moorley, the best lawyer to protect the health and interests of injured people.
After our mom had a terrible slip and fall, we were dealing with hospitals, doctors, and overwhelming emotion. Jeff was invaluable in helping us through a very difficult time. He handled our case professionally and treated us with the utmost respect and kindness. He made himself available at all times for any questions or concerns that we had. If you need excellent representation, our family highly recommends Jeff Moorley.
You did a very good job for me! You explain everything. I recommend you as the best lawyer.
Being in a motor vehicle accident, it changes your life. You go through so much and the legal process is challenging, but, with experts in the field, it makes the biggest difference. I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer to handle my case, so thank you very much for everything, I appreciate it more than you know.
You are full of compassion and kindness. I can't find the words to describe how wonderful my time working with you has been. You picked me up when I needed it and gave me the support and skills I needed to get where I am today. I truly am blessed to have known you. I remember what a mess I was in the beginning. I cannot imagine doing this without you. I can tell that you take pride in your work because time and time again you have proven this.
Suddenly my life was in complete crisis mode. Things were happening fast and for the first time in my life I needed legal representation. I was scared and feeling vulnerable. Peter navigated me through dangerous and complicated waters with grace, intelligence and dignity. My matters were resolved and my peace of mind was restored.
I couldn't be happier Duncan. Seriously, you and your team are an amazing fighting force. I will forever be grateful and awed by your skill and compassion. You have truly been my hero!!
I want to take this opportunity to give you my whole hearted thanks. You have made an unpleasant time in our lives tolerable with your professionalism and grace.
“Hey Dan, heartfelt appreciation for your diligence in taking on my case. Your gentle nature, thoroughness and confidence were greatly appreciated.”
The day I met you I walked into your office with a letter to discuss with you what my options were. At that point I was receiving nothing and because of your assistance I will actually be able to fund some sort of retirement. I can't thank you enough.
Certainly, my view of what lawyers really accomplish has changed through dealing with my Dad’s affairs. Once again thanks for your time, efforts, and professionalism. My father has high regards for your effort and time to get the settlement in such a timely fashion
Thanks again for taking my case and doing an awesome job... and keeping me sane. I greatly appreciate it!
