TESTIMONIALS

What Our Clients Say

SRM 2
As a Commercial Trucking Litigation Supervisor, I have found Hightower, Stratton, Novigrod & Kantor to be not only extremely knowledgeable but personable and readily available. It is difficult in today’s commercial claims arena to find a Defense Firm who is willing to accept the challenge of mitigating the existing exposures by building a solid yet economically feasible defense. My comfort level in combatting the litigious mentality of some is by far exceeded with Hightower, Stratton, Novigrod & Kantor.

Dale, I just wanted to let you know in all my past experience as a Florida Adjuster how impressive I think Herb is. He does an amazing job not only with the critical incidents but in every aspect of the claim from medical specials to property damage issues. He is an incredible asset to us and our client with his consistency, reliability, responsiveness and knowledge. In our line of work folks are very quick to complain (present company included of course) and rarely take the time to call someone our when they do an amazing job. I am taking a minute to let you know but I am sure you already know that about him! Thank you and your team for all you do!

Dan Novigrod and his team are very professional, thorough, proficient, and knowledgeable.  They take time to explain matters that may be unclear and they were very flexible in scheduling. Dan’s team demonstrated an ability to grasp our unique qualities and tailor their approach to the case accordingly. I absolutely would recommend them and definitely intend to continue using them for the foreseeable future!
