Three years ago, my husband, Jeff, sustained a severe traumatic brain injury in a bicycling accident. Life as I knew it abruptly and dramatically ended. I found myself, at 28, trying to navigate and manage the very complex and demanding life of a person living with a severe TBI. There are not appropriate words to explain how difficult of a time it was and how uncertain our future looked.

From our very first meeting, Richard showed me the utmost respect, understanding, and compassion. Richard and his amazing team literally jumped in with both feet and helped me tackle all aspects of Jeff’s care; hospitals, surgeries, rehab, group homes, etc. Richard was unbelievably committed to our case and in the end, was able to ensure that Jeff would have the quality of care he will need for the rest of his life.

To be quite honest, it is difficult to sum up just how instrumental Richard Adler has been in my life. He stood by me during the most difficult time in my life. His dedication to helping TBI families is nothing short of amazing. I am forever grateful for the compassion and understanding Richard and MaryEllen, paralegal extraordinaire, have bestowed upon us.
