Have you been injured in an auto accident? If so, call attorney Frank Azar, "The Strong Arm." He’s been fighting insurance companies in Colorado for years and he’ll get you a $25,000 settlement. Then, you can turn around and sue Frank Azar (profiled by Westword in 2002) for half of a million dollars, claiming he pressured you to take less than you were due. 40-year-old Shawna Jimenez of Colorado Springs did just that and now an El Paso County jury has awarded her $145,000. Thanks, Frank Azar! " – Jared Jacang Maher
