We contacted Trief & Olk to help us with a life insurance issue and Shelly Friedland was the attorney assigned to our case. Before Shelly took our case she explained to us that the likelihood of our success without going to court was possible but not likely. Unfortunately we did not get the outcome we had hoped for but it was our decision to not move forward and have our case litigated. Shelly is very knowledgeable and was very straight-forward in her assessment of our case as we moved forward. She was very patient and thorough in answering our questions. She always responded in a timely manner and listened to our concerns. We would certainly recommend Shelly and would use her firm again in the future.

If there is any possibility of winning your life insurance case – this is the place to do it for you. They are efficient, honest and will achieve the best possible outcome.

Shelly Friedland worked on my case where a life insurance policy had lapsed and was even a few days beyond the grace period. Farmers had rejected my claim twice and was unwilling to take a second look. Shelly was able to get them to pay the entire claim without going to court, and the full amount was deposited in my account within a couple months. Highest recommendation.

If you have an insurance case you really need to win, working with Shelly at Trief & Olk is the way to go. Shelly is outstanding – extremely efficient and knowledgable as well as creative and able to think outside the box. Farmers Insurance had rejected my claim twice due to my mothers death occurring several days after her life insurance policy lapsed. I spoke with 5-6 top attorneys specializing in insurance prior to selecting Shelly for my case. What really stood out about her was she immediately picked up on relevant details in my case and was easily able to identify multiple routes she could pursue to win my case, all while doing her initial consultation with me. This was a huge contrast to other lawyers, who did not seem to feel it would be an easy case for them, and requested a significant percentage of anything recovered for just sending initial correspondence. From the very beginning it was clear Shelly had my best interest in mind. She was incredibly transparent and provided me an option where I could pay them a flat fee for initial correspondence, and enter a percentage structure should the case need to go to court. Within a day of hiring her, she already had a letter out to the insurance company! Shelly handled all the back and forth with the insurance company, and when additional documents were required even offered for an internal Trief & Olk employee who was an expert at retrieving medical records to handle it for me free of charge. She was in regular correspondence with me and handled every last detail down to the direct deposit information. Thanks to Shelly, Famers agreed to pay the full half million policy without going to trial. Less than 4 months after I hired Shelly the money is already in my bank account! My friends and family are all in awe of how great my lawyer was, and I truly cannot recommend Shelly enough!
