Legal Simplified - Lawyers Verified

At my firm people count. Give us a call.

People count. For 32 years I have been protecting everyday folks from insurance companies and corporations. When people get in harm’s way, it often happens because someone or some company was unsafe, careless, sloppy, and cared more about making money than who they might hurt.

And if you, your family or friend happen to be the one hurt by dangerous people like this, you can be sure that they could not care less about what happens to you and your family; but you’re the one who can’t work, has to go to the doctor, can’t take care of your family, has bills piling up, spends the day hurting, and wonders when someone is going to do the right thing and help out. That isn’t going to happen, and that’s just the way it is these days.

People do count, and I take great pride in caring about people. I do that a couple of different ways.

First, I strive to be the best lawyer I can. I have been at this for 32 years. I work every day at the courthouse, or wrangle with insurance companies and black hat defense lawyers, or make new laws. Besides being a real life lawyer who helps real people, I have written books, articles, and taught seminars on how to protect people and prevent harm. My cases are on the books because I take a case as far as it needs to go, and if I have to spend my own money to do it so be it.

I am as comfortable having a cup of coffee with a client as I am addressing a lecture hall filled with lawyers and judges.

Second, I have a staff that has been with me for years. My employees average about 10 years of service with me. They take this seriously too, and they know what they are doing.

Third, I trade in plain talk. I don’t candy coat anything. If you don’t have a case, I will tell you that, but I’ll also tell you why. People appreciate closure and sometimes knowing why you don’t have a case is a big help. If you have a case and I take it, I will make certain you get full value, and when we get to that point I will tell you. I put my money where my mouth is too, because when I take your case, I use my money to make your case go.

Everyone that works in my firm has the same passion. We take this seriously. We know that when something bad happens, there aren’t many people who will step up and look after you, and you need someone to help you put things back together, and start asking the reckless people that hurt you the hard questions that bring justice home for you.

I invite you to ask around about me. You’ll hear things like honest, actually cares, goes to the mat, and might be a little crazy.

  • $1,100,000 death caused by careless highway mowing company.
  • $1,000,000 - A client was driving his pickup truck when another driver ran a red light and smashed into his truck. Besides a broken neck, the client had a severe traumatic brain injury that changed his life, and required lengthy hospitalization and rehabilitation. The case resulted in payment of the full insurance policy limits of $1,000,000.
  • $1,000,000 - A county employee allowed his unlicensed son to drive a dump truck owned by the county. The employee was standing across the road, and waved the son across. He crashed into a car that had the right of way, causing numerous low back and spine injuries that kept our client from returning to work as a plumber. The back and spine injuries required surgery.
  • $700,000 - A tractor trailer driver had devastating stomach injuries when a wheel from another tractor trailer came loose, skipped across the highway, and exploded into the cab of the truck he was driving. Doctors had to reconstruct his stomach wall using surgical mesh. We were able to help him collect his medical bills, wages, and compensation for future medical expenses and pain and suffering.

  • $500,000 - contractor injured by inhaling defective aerosol.
  • $500,000 – senior citizen waved into path of tractor trailer by careless construction worker
  • $490,000 - A two year old girl tragically drowned in a family swimming pool. An engineering inspection showed that the pool contactor had not built the fencing and gate up to code requirements. The gate did not self-latch, and the slats were placed too far apart. This is called a wrongful death case.
  • $490,000 - On Christmas Day a woman tried to go into a restaurant to eat. The parking lot and sidewalk were covered with snow and ice, and as the lady approached the door her feet flew out from under her. She landed on her rear, and the severe spinal injuries required surgery, which included fusions and metal rods. She was out of work for a lengthy period of time. During the lawsuit evidence was uncovered that the restaurant falsified maintenance records, and that the snow and ice was allowed to thaw and refreeze over several days of cold weather.
  • $415,000 – client with previous history of back surgery has a second back injury in car crash
  • $400,000 - (specific facts confidential) A couple's home was destroyed by fire. The insurance company refused to pay any more than the appraised value of the property, which was much less than the cost to replace. The insurance company also paid much less for the contents than they were worth. While the insurance company delayed payment the couple was forced to live in a camper in an RV park.
  • $400,000 - A young driver became distracted and strayed across the lane and hit another driver head on. A witness at the scene claimed that the axle on the young driver's car came loose, causing it to veer into the other vehicle. The young driver's rear axle was taken apart and examined by a metallurgist (metal expert) who concluded that this did not happen. We were able to collect all of the liability insurance and underinsured motorist coverages available, including underinsured motorist coverages from several different vehicles.
  • $350,000 - Hepatitis from defective immunoglobulin formula.
  • $341,000 - A 64 year old lady had a severe knee fracture and extensive soft tissue damage when another driver ran a red light and smashed into her car.

  • $245,000 - school bus driver claim against insurance company for knee injury.

The driver of the tractor trailer started to drive away and the tire rolled over the client's foot, fracturing several toes. The case was disputed over who was at fault, and an out of court settlement was negotiated.
  • $180,000 - whiplash injury at truck stop.
  • $140,000 - senior citizen struck by golf cart on public course.
  • $125,000 - A dog ran out in front of a biker, causing a motorcycle accident. The biker had eight rib fractures and a hemothorax (a collection of blood between the chest wall and the lung). The owner of the dog did nothing to control it, and an investigation showed that the dog had chased other people on motorcycles and bicycles.
  • $100,000 - While riding in an uninsured car the client was in a wreck. Although there were serious back and spine injuries, including a herniated disc, no surgery was required. Another law firm turned the case down. After investigating the case and gathering medical evidence we persuaded the client's insurance company to pay its full $100,000 policy limits.
