Lawyer.com Member Questionnaire

Please describe a case(s) in the last year or two where you made a big difference.
I resolved a workers’ compensation death case for $400,000. My client was the 3 year old daughter. Her father was killed during the course of his employment. The settlement paid $1400 per month for 15 years, and $50,000 at ages 18, 21, and 25. The money was more than sufficient to allow the mother to provide for all of life’s necessities up to age 18. The lump sum payments will allow the child to attend college, purchase a home, or invest.

How did you build a successful practice?
I am the second generation. I was able to build upon a firm that had been in existence for many years, and earned a good reputation. Jay F. Trucks was the founder of the law firm. He is still practicing law at the age of 80. I purchased the firm approximately 10 years ago.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?
Smart, dedicated, and compassionate.

How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?
Local knowledge is very important. It is a big advantage to know the tendencies of the judges, and juries.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?
Significant information is provided during the initial free phone consultation: Do you have a case, where will the case be filed, how long will the case take, what is range of what the case is worth.

What information do you need in a free phone consultation?
Name, address, phone number, how did the injury happen, who’s fault was the accident, how serious are the injuries, surgeries performed, are you disabled from working.

What differentiates you from other lawyers in your community?
Second generation lawyer with 29 years of experience. I have only handled workers’ compensation and auto accident cases. I will out work my competition. We have kept up with the latest technology for case management and client communication.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
Helping injured people during their time of need. I help to level the playing field against large corporations and insurance companies.

What are your other interests in addition to law?
I have a wonderful wife and two boys in college. My wife and I enjoy attending our boys sporting events, and spending time at Higgins Lake where we enjoy boating and other water sports. I enjoy working out on a daily basis.

Are you involved in your community?
I have coached youth sports, and have donated money to many local projects including turf for the high school football, stadium seating for the baseball team, yearly donations to Habitat for Humanity, Big Brother Big Sisters, United Way, and other charities.
