“Mark morse did the impossible for me. After I was taken off my disability insurance plan he won it back within the time frame he stated. He did a wonderful job getting me exactly what he said he could. My livelihood, my peace of mind back. I never thought I would be able to fight such a big company and was hopeless. I cried my heart out when he told me I won. I can smile again, thank you so much, Mr. Morse. I can spend the rest of my life worrying about getting better and not wondering how to pay my bills. Thanks so much.”
