After being in a accident I was told by there insurance company that i waas 10% liable for the accident even though i did no recieve any tickets. the other driver recieved 2 or 3 tickets . This concerned me as there ws a flight for life envolved and i did not do any thinng wrong... I would recommend them to any one that has been injured in an accident. With the constant up dates that I required. it really eases my mind becausei still dont understand how the insurance company tried to put any blame on me. With Philip and Monica on my side i didn't mater. Thank you Philip and Monica I really appreciate all that you did for me.

Phil Chupik and Monica Cherry were extremely efficient in handling our cases. Monica kept us up to date on all proceedings and was very responsive to our questions. We couldn’t have been happier with the entire process. We highly recommend their services for any legal needs. Hopefully we’ll never need them again but they would be our first choice.

Being young they helped me navigate and understand the confusing process of how to handle things after my accident. He was able to get me a great settlement with all my medical bills payed. I 10/10 recommend using Phil as your lawyer. I could really tell he actually cared about me as a person. Thanks Phil!

I had the absolute pleasure to have Phillip Chupik as my lawyer during one of the hardest times of my life. It was my first experience with a lawsuit and lawyer and he helped me not only win my case but also gave me the knowledge and experience on how to deal with these matters. He answered every question, every concern and truly cared about what was happening in my life. While my situation was unfortunate, working with him was an amazing experience and I greatly appreciate everything he did for me!

I called Metier Law Firm the next day after my bad car accident - lucky to be here - and Phil Chupik was my attorney. I cannot thank Phil Chupik enough for all his hard work, honesty and dedication fighting the insurance company tooth and nail every step of the way day in and day out and didn’t take no for an answer. Phil always stayed in close contact keeping me informed on what was going on and asking me questions. I really really appreciate everything Phil did for me. Phil talked to me many times after hours and told me he was there for me anytime. Phil got me the max amount of money from the lady’s insurance including the money my Health insurance was wanting to keep, also playing hard ball with my uninsured motorist getting me the max amount of money. I would use Phil again tomorrow if I needed to and will recommend to anyone looking or needing an amazing attorney. I feel I developed a relationship with Phil. Thank you again Phil Chupik for all your hard work and dedication. I really really appreciate it can’t say enough good things about you.
