Over a year ago I was involved in a car accident and was injured. I contacted Erney Law in Columbus Ohio and spoke to Mary Erney. The following day I met up with the father-daughter duo Robert & Mary Erney... best decision I ever made. They fought for my case 100%. Their honesty and open communication gave me assurance that I was in good hands. Thank you to Mary Erney for being understanding, caring, knowledgeable & determined. If you looking for a great attorney I highly recommend Erney Law.

"I was seriously injured in a car accident. I was put in a bad situation by my first lawyer. I thought I would never hire a lawyer again until I met Rob Erney. He took my case and rebuilt it, ultimately getting a great settlement for me. Rob was easy to get a hold of and answered all my questions. He is honest, hard working and keeps his word. Mr. Erney is an excellent auto accident lawyer and I will recommend him to anyone."
