Insurance Claims Manager

I cannot more highly recommend Hui Ying. She has a wealth of knowledge on the subject of personal injury claims of all range of quantum including fraudulent and exaggerated claims which are often contested at trial or assessment of damages. Nothing seems to rattle or distract Hui Ying from her focus on a case, which makes her extremely tough to beat. Her results in trial speak volumes. I did not hesitate a second in making this endorsement.
