“I recently was in an accident. I was recommended McCoy and Sparks Attorneys to handle my case. The best experience I have ever encountered with dealing with an Attorney, they were very straightforward, honest but most of all caring. Also, I would like to point out Stacy Hurst was exceptionally helpful. If anyone ever needs an Attorney, I strongly recommend McCoy and Sparks, they are the best. I want to thank them for handling my case and for fighting for my interest.”
