We began our practice in October 1992 on Tyler's downtown square. Our office started out handling workers' compensation cases and criminal court appointments, but early on, Keith knew he was meant to help others in a very specific way. His experience with his dad's death, and his family's struggles with the insurance company afterward, pulled him to help others affected by injuries and trauma. In addition, he had worked for a national insurance company as a claims adjuster and knew how difficult it could be for people to receive compensation following a traumatic life event. Keith made up his mind—this law firm would go to battle for injury victims and their families against insurance companies.
Over the next two decades we helped countless clients navigate the process of seeking compensation from insurance companies following injuries. We also built a large staff of dedicated professionals who see our clients as individuals—individuals with families and bills to pay.
That dedication was never more evident than it was in 2009 following the downtown Tyler fire that destroyed our first building. We were the only building on the block with fire insurance and had some difficulty getting our servers back from the ATF because of it. We did, though, and within two days we had set up shop in our new location, which is the same one we operate from now. We didn't lose or let down a single client during that phase. Staff showed up and worked on the floor of our new place, calling clients and keeping things moving.
We are a fire-tested group that's well-suited to helping people when they don't know what to do or where to turn.
