Jason Perkins

Workers’ Compensation Attorney

Although workers’ compensation is supposed to balance the interests of injured workers and employers, it seems like injured workers often get the short end of the stick. I cannot tell you how many times people have contacted me because they are frustrated with the delays that they encounter trying to get the treatment and compensation that they should after an injury at work.

Travis Studdard

Veterans Disability Attorney

One of my favorite stories in the Bible is David’s defeat of Goliath. David should have never stood a chance against Goliath. David was a young shepherd boy, not a soldier. Goliath was a giant man and skilled warrior. Despite these overwhelming differences in size, strength, and experience, David was able to defeat his foe with a slingshot and stones.

As a lawyer, I am proud to have always represented “Davids” against the “Goliaths” in their lives. My clients have always been just regular, hardworking people facing incredibly tough odds against someone with more money, time, and experience.
