Call for the help you need when you have been wronged

JKFM Law has represented people for over 35 years.  I have been in practice since 1979.  I was certified by the National Board of Trial Advocacy as a Civil Trial Advocate, a privilege enjoyed by less than 3,000 attorneys.  We take a team approach to our clients’ problems.  Each lawyer brings unique past experiences to our cases.  Jane is a former Registered Intensive Care Nurse and still maintains her R.N. licensure.  Audrey was previously a trial attorney with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission as well as a labor attorney with a large trucking company.  Jarrett brings years of experience as a business and sales manager.  Combined, our attorneys have over 80 years of trial experience.

When we represent victims of medical mistakes we have the experience to understand what needs to be done to see that our client is justly compensated.

With years of handling serious cases including death or injury resulting from trucking accidents, dangerous products and hazardous conditions, when we take a case, we have the confidence of having done it before.

For victims of employment discrimination or wrongful termination, we can view their case from a unique perspective.  Not only can we rely on having litigated many cases, we can understand how the employer may defend the case or how the EEOC may handle the charge.

At JKFM Law we take all of our clients’ problems seriously.  We work together to reach a successful result.  Whether your case can be resolved quickly or must be aggressively litigated through trial, we will be on your side.

Contact us today if you need legal assistance with any of the following:

  • Wrongful Death
  • Truck Accidents/Motor Vehicle Accidents
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Nursing Home Negligence
  • Maritime Injuries
  • Product Liability
