I want to thank Josh and the team at Auger & Auger for all of their help with the questions I had. From the first time I called them they were all about helping me.

I know they are very busy with a lot of other clients, but I never felt that way when I spoke to them.

Great law firm! They specialize in personal injury and car accident law, so if you are injured and it was not your fault – give them a call. When I first called I was offered a free accident report, free consultation and there was not any upfront cost to hire them. The way their contracts are set up is that they only get paid if they are successful. That made it a lot easier and I really had a very good experience dealing with them. Thanks to Josh and all of the staff and lawyers.
The people at Auger & Auger were very friendly when I spoke with them. They offer to help find car accident reports for free and they are not pushy.
