I was hit by an uninsured driver when riding my bike down Mt. Diablo.  Dawn not only got me 100% of my available uninsured motorist coverage within months, she also got me the full medical payments coverage.  She went the extra mile and worked with the CHP to get the driver investigated for fraudulently providing fake insurance information at the scene. She was knowledgeable, responsive, and made a very painful situation a lot easier to deal with.
