Trust Attorneys With Experience

When it comes to workers’ compensation, third-party cases, and personal injury actions, we’ve been there.  For over 45 combined years, our attorneys have worked to keep our communities and workplaces safe and to get fair compensation to help people get ahead after injuries leave them behind.  Our workers’ compensation and injury clients come to us through word-of-mouth referrals from friends, family, unions, trade organizations, their medical providers, and other lawyers.

He has also taught almost 145 state and national classes for lawyers and other professionals. Christa Sumwalt has handled over 125 jury trials.

By addressing your concerns head-on, we can help you move forward. No one should take a trip through the workers’ compensation system without a map.  We’ve been there and know what’s ahead. We can help you anticipate what’s ahead and the risks and benefits of each choice you have to make to reach the finish line.  Please call us with your questions and concerns.
