While the day to day practice of injury work is fulfilling, the most joy I receive is when a client comes in to close their case and pick up their check. I love providing the type of closure to clients who have been struggling with being taken advantage of by the insurance industry.
Some clients find so much relief that they cry tears of joy and relief as I hand them their check. Some have even asked for hugs (too weird?). I feel like a partner to each client and that we have won a victory together.
