Pro bono/Community Service

  • In early 2020, we helped the parents of a young man who was killed.  The young man’s parents lived out of state and we did everything through Zoom and by email.  Despite the evidence being stacked against the young man, we managed to track down witnesses who shared testimony that conflicted with the investigating officer and established that the young man was mostly innocent. The results of our investigation meant that the car insurance had to pay the parents.  Though we did not get paid any fee for the time we spent, the feeling we experienced when we shared the good news with the young man’s parents was worth far more than any legal fee. In September 2020, we helped a young mother of five to recover from a severe crash. Despite the insurance coverage being the state’s minimum limits (i.e. $25,000), we filed a lawsuit at no cost to this young mother and we spent months litigating and then negotiating with the medical providers and lienholders. Our client ended up with enough money to pay off her medical bills, her lien holders, and keep several thousand dollars to spend on her children. Again, though we did not take any fee, we did take pride in changing this young mother’s life., 2020

  • $480,000, PORCH SWING COLLAPSE: While staying as a paying guest at an Airbnb rented lake house in Alabama, out client fell off a swing after the hook snapped.
