Kevin Szanyi has handled cases for Suzuki for nearly twenty years. From small cases to those involving catastrophic injury or death, he can do it all. Kevin’s advice is always timely, on-point, and well thought out, and the strategy he helps us develop in defending these cases has resulted in outstanding outcomes and well below estimated budgets. I cannot think of a case he could not handle for our company. Kevin has my complete confidence and trust.
