What Makes Us Different

Here are a few reasons to choose us:

1. We are locals.

We are members of the Eastern Kentucky community. We live and breathe in the same counties we serve.

2. We offer hands-on help.

Think of us as your personal guides through every step of your injury case. You don’t have to travel alone. Plus, you will work directly with a senior attorney. We don’t pass clients off to inexperienced associates. Instead, one of our two named partners will personally handle your case.

3. We know how to combat insurance tactics.

Mr. Tinker spent more than 20 years as a former insurance defense attorney. He knows exactly how insurance adjusters think. In fact, he used to train them. This gives you a strong advantage in any negotiation or litigation with your insurance company.

4. We have decades of trial experience.

Both of our attorneys have been practicing for more than 25 years. In addition, the number of trials we have handled is unmatched by other firms in the area. This means you can rest assured that your case is in highly competent hands.

5. We work hard, just like you.

To take down large game, sometimes you have to go deep into the woods and get some mud on your boots. We’re not afraid to do the same. You can expect us to handle your case with the work ethic and grit that you deserve.
