Casey Carlson did a fantastic job on my personal injury/workmans comp case. The case was not headed in the direction I needed and Casey managed to turn it around and give me the results I needed! Lisa, his paralegal, was on top of the constantly changing circumstances and kept me in the loop at all times. She was incredibly helpful and they were both very professional at all times!

I spoke with Casey Carlson regarding an accident (fall) and needed some advice before proceeding. This was a personal injury and was so impressed with his punctual response and his advice on handling. Completely professional as well as passionate throughout. From how he advised was the perfect consult and resulted in a most positive experience and outcome .
