Makris Law Firm Client Talks About Experience In Personal Injury & Disability


 “I’ve got a background in law enforcement, 23 years retired criminal investigator. I wish the passenger in a vehicle, not three blocks from the apartment where I live. And this kid was watching a pretty girl walk down the sidewalk at 55 miles-per-hour and hit us from behind. This is my seat and I’m sitting here, and my toolbox was here. And when it hit, it got my leg and broke it in two places. I put up with it as long as I could and filed for disability, because I couldn’t move, had numbness in my legs. I fought this for, like, eight years, you know, trying to get disability. I got an attorney out of Roswell, this was where the federal courts are, the closest one there where we lived,okay in New Mexico. And bless his heart he just folded his hands and said, “I don’t what to tell you.” In the meantime I had moved down here where they had schedule the final appeal, okay and I’m saying, “What do I do?” I picked up the phone book,the first one that shot out at me was Victor Makris. I called him. He said, “Come in, and we’ll go over your case.” And the next thing I know he said, “Well, you’re hearing schedule is set at a certain time,” and in 3 months Victor accomplished more for me than what I did or the other attorney did. Victor’s got the magic. Somehow, he put it together that made sense to a judge. And nobody up to that point could or did.”
