Firm Founder Focusing on Personal Injury
I’ve been practicing law since October 2005 and I found Lawrence & Associates. I currently oversee all practice areas, including Personal Injury, Workers’ Compensation, and Bankruptcy. However, my hands-on work is mostly in Personal Injury litigation, particularly for products liability and admiralty cases.
Devoted to Helping People Get Back on Their Feet
I went to law school because I wanted to help people. No one needs help more than someone that’s had a traumatic life event. Whether you’ve been hurt and can’t pay medical bills, or lost your job and can’t pay your mortgage, I take a lot of pride in fact that my firm can help get you back on your feet.
I always wanted to represent people, not businesses. I would have to walk off the job the first time a business wanted me to sue a single mom, or something like that. Also, I worked at Children’s Hospital during law school and knew medical records pretty well. So I focused on an area of practice where I knew I’d be helping people and could put my medical based skills to good use. Lawrence & Associates started off practicing in personal injury and expanded from there.
The Future For Lawrence & Associates
Lawrence & Associates needs to continue to grow and sometimes it’s tough because there are a lot of cheap, gimmicky lawyers out there. Most prospective clients have trouble telling the difference between good lawyers and bad. Getting past the static created by those silly commercials is a major challenge to my firm’s ability to represent those in need.
Lawrence & Associates wants to grow to become the premier legal representation for people in the Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati areas. We want to expand our ability to help people with personal injury, workers’ compensation and bankruptcy cases, as well as expand into other areas of practice such as estate planning and elder law.
Our Firm Sets Ourselves Apart Through Client Satisfaction
We are simply the best in client satisfaction, hands down. Most of our business comes from referrals, and a lot of those are from prior clients. We communicate well with our clients and get results. All our fees are up front and there are no hidden charges. We know good service leads to more business down the road than campy commercials or tired gimmicks.
Success is Helping Our Clients with Their Problems…And Winning!
I’ve had clients hug me in the courtroom when they realize we’ve accomplished whatever we set out to do. I’ve brought in millions of dollars for my clients, including two multi-million dollar cases so far in 2014. Both are forms of success to my firm and I. My firm and I like winning, and we win a lot.
Keys to my success are empathy, public speaking, persistence, and continual learning. My background working at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital gave me a unique perspective into medical treatment that helps benefit my clients. Also, I’m one of very few people who actually enjoys and looks forward to public speaking. This helps a great deal in the courtroom. In regard to education, I’ve spent the last nine years focusing on the personal injury, workers’ compensation, and bankruptcy areas of practice, and I’ve taken hundreds of hours of continuing education in those areas.
Giving Back to the Community
I focus on helping children with disabilities. I’m on the Board of Directors of Redwood and sponsor several of their events. Redwood is a school that helps children and adults with disabilities lead happy, enriching lives that are incorporated into the mainstream community wherever possible. I have also been appointed by the governor to sit on the Commonwealth of Kentucky’s Interagency Coordinating Council for Early Childhood Development, which focuses on helping children with disabilities meet their developmental goals from birth to age three.
“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence.” – Calvin Coolidge, 30th President of the United States
