The Judd J. Balmer, Esq., Ltd., Legal Team

"Everyday, we help good people just like you who need help-- people who are sick in their homes, offices, and schools, people who are David facing goliath insurance companies and builders, people who are being taken advantage of by corporate greed, arrogance, and indifference.  We stand up for you, the little guy. And, we fight hard for you and your family.  We have the experience to level the playing field and get a fair result.  We have years of battle-tested experience in the concentrated and interrelated set of complex legal disciplines of construction defects, toxic mold litigation, water damage, personal injuries, insurance bad faith, and real estate failure to disclose.  We can help you and your family get back to a normal life."
