“Mr. Dan Petro was invaluable in helping us through an extremely difficult time. After my husband was involved in an accident at work and suffered a traumatic brain injury, I didn’t know the first thing to do. He came over to the house the day after I called him. I was overwhelmed with the doctors, medical bills, insurance companies, FELA and railroad paperwork that needed to be taken care of and he helped through the whole process! He answered our questions 24/7! We will forever be grateful to him for all his help.”
