Brandon and Scott from Biggs & Gunst P.C. were great to work with! They helped me settle and Auto claim in a timely manner and made the process extremely easy. They are very knowledgeable, answered any questions I had, and were always available when I needed them. They made what I thought would be a major headache, into a very streamlined and simple process, and kept me updated every step of the way. I would highly recommend working with Biggs & Gunst P.C.! Brandon and Scott will get the job done, and offer a personal touch that is often missing in this line of work!
My ex and I used the services of Brandon Biggs as a mediator for our child custody and support case in Livingston County. He was very professional and in being a mediator did not take sides which I found to be quite refreshing. In any matter that we had difficulty agreeing upon he would have us explain exactly why it was that we felt we should have it our way and in doing so came up with middle ground that both of us could agree upon. I appreciated the fact that he did not sugarcoat anything when it came to how the courts would view and handle any issues that we had about how we felt things should go. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a mediator.
