- Teacher Killed in Apache Junction Car Accident | Legal News | News Ticker
Everyone understands that when an Arizona car accident occurs, everyone in the area is placed in an immediate situation of risk and danger. However, one of the most overlooked yet most dangerous times in relation to a crash is the immediate aftermath. Tragically, that immediate aftermath proved to be deadly for a teacher who was killed in an Apache Junction car accident moments after an initial crash had occurred that had left him relatively unharmed. Police are still investigating the situation.
According to authorities, this Apache Junction car accident occurred at 6:30 a.m. this morning when Sat Guru Singh Khalsa, 61, was driving his scooter in an eastbound direction on Broadway Avenue near Meridian Road. Just then, Gene Burns turned his vehicle to the right and into the path of the man, and the two collided. The initial crash did not lead to injuries, but as the two men were discussing the incident with Joseph Sammarzo, a good Samaritan, 27-year-old Matthew Crane came upon the scene and did not stop in time to avoid hitting the men. Mr. Khalsa was killed as a result of the impact and Mr. Sammarazo injured his leg. No one else was injured in the crash.

Kathy Hudson and Donato Giovanatto. Continues to go above and beyond the call of duty. Reaching out to the insurance company about the damage to the vehicle. Forcing them to take responsibility.
My review is for Kathy Hudson a legal assistant at the law firm. She is great! She is very professional and a fair based person. She was never rude to me and always called me back. She listened to me and had my best interest as number 1. Mr Nasir who is a supervisor at law firm also was very professional and helpful. Not sure if spelling his name correctly but sorry if not. As far as mr Ross and the lady that runs the front desk reception I would say they are the most unprofessional and rude people I have met at a law firm in my life especially beings they were representing me. But Kathy made it overall a better experience. Thx Kathy.
I would have no hesitation at all recommending Phillips Law Group. In particular, Juan Roque has impressed me with his professionalism, his integrity and his heart for the community!
I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
Sophia H is very helpful.
Jasmine Delgado is an amazing paralegal. She was patient, kind and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommend Phillips law group
Two family members were in a bad wreck a couple of years ago, and as a result called Phillips Law to represent them. Montana Thompson was the attorney assigned to the case with the help of Nemo Farr as legal assistant. Mr. Thompson litigated a very generous settlement for both my stepdaughter and her son. Because my grandson is a minor, I decided to act as conservator for him to ensure the settlement was safe and secure. Montana helped with that process, but it was Nemo who went way above and beyond the call in finding a financial institution to use for the restricted account. There were some glitches in that process but Nemo helped navigate them with a calm expertise which belies his age. I would consider them both great representatives of the level of commitment to their clients and assets to their firm.
