I was very skeptical about hiring a company for the diminished value on my Toyota Camry.  Especially after several insurance agents told me it was not possible to get anything more than what the insurance company offered. After speaking with CCA, I decided to go ahead and hire Richard.  With almost $12,000 in damage, State… Read More

I just wanted to say Thank you for your service. Without your professional diminished value report, I’m sure the insurance company would’ve had the advantage.
