Corbett Family Statement

Recently, my family experienced a gross injustice that has made us even more determined to fight racial profiling, police misconduct and the mistreatment of the accused. I cannot provide details now because this matter is in the court system. But what I will say is we aren’t deterred or defeated. We’re committed Christ followers, activists and we will fight back vigorously. The experience was just what my family needed to double down against injustice. ...

What Clients Want From Their Lawyers

[vc_row][vc_column width="2/3"][vc_column_text] We heard you. Recently, we conducted a survey that asked people what they wanted if they were injured in a truck accident. We got great feedback. We’ll use this feedback to get better and better as a law firm. According to our survey, there are four main things you want from your lawyer. Let’s review what you told us: 1.    SPEEDY YET GREAT FINANCIAL COMPENSATION First, a majority said you want great financial compensation for your injuries, and you want it fast. We understand this desire since the accident caused you lots of pain, medical bills, credit damage, lost wages, mental anguish, and often...

The Benefits To Our Clients That We’re Skilled, Smart Trial Lawyers

[vc_row][vc_column width="2/3"][vc_column_text] The Benefits To Our Clients That We’re Skilled, Smart Trial Lawyers Better Offers and Better Verdicts Growing up I watched television shows and movies such as To Kill A Mocking Bird, Perry Mason, and Matlock. These lawyers had very different personalities, but there’s something they shared: they were skilled, smart trial lawyers. Hollywood embellished the trial process, but lawyers during that era were trial lawyers first. Lawyers were expected to know how to try cases well for their clients. The legal profession has changed dramatically. Many lawyers never see the inside of a courtroom. They can practice law from their offices and...

Safety Facts About 18-Wheeler Truck Wrecks

[vc_row][vc_column width="2/3"][vc_column_text] Sharing The Road Safely With Large Trucks 4,761 Americans died in crashes involving large trucks in 2017.[1]Most of these fatalities were avoidable and needless deaths. Negligent or reckless drivers caused most of them.  Every year the National Highway Transportation Safety Authority (NHTSA) publishes a report about specific facts regarding 18-wheeler accidents. The report enhances safety. Our firm reviews and uses the report to make safety suggestions. We’d rather not see another person experience such injuries or death although we assist injured persons or their families in seeking justice when accidents occur. The devastation from an 18-wheeler accident can be horrific. Knowledge is...

The Work Of The Criminal Defense Lawyer

[vc_row][vc_column width="2/3"][vc_column_text] Standing With The Accused Bob walked into my office nearly a broken man. Law enforcement had recently charged him with assault family violence and strangulation on his wife. This charge is a third-degree felony that carries up to ten years in prison. Besides the damage to his marriage and family, Bob was also concerned about losing his professional job. He’s an architect at a huge architectural firm. His salary exceeded six figures. A felony conviction would have ruined his career. I learned that Bob is a good man from our investigation. He had no prior record and volunteered in the community. I...

All White Juries

[vc_row][vc_column width="2/3"][vc_column_text] How Racism Shapes Jury Selection Eliminating jurors solely based on race is illegal.  However, every day in courtrooms throughout America, black people are still excluded from serving on juries.  This racist practice is a travesty. The principles this Country are founded on have always been loftier than their actual application. Our founders dreamt of a country different from the monarchies that governed Europe – one in which the people chose their leaders, constitutional rights were protected, and a group of their peers decided whether the government could take their liberty.  Again, these have been lofty goals, but they were meant to only apply to...

Hit And Run Car Wrecks

[vc_row][vc_column width="2/3"][vc_column_text] Stop and Check To If Anyone Needs Help Recently, a witness said she saw a Dallas city councilman allegedly hit a disabled pedestrian and say to the victim “don’t you know who I am before driving away. His lawyer tells a different story. We’ll wait for the facts to come out before reaching any conclusions. Everyone is presumed innocent until proven guilty in court based on credible evidence. Notwithstanding the presumption of innocence in the above case, drivers sometimes leave the accident scene after crashing into pedestrians or someone’s car. That’s a hit-and-run car wreck. Besides being illegal, hit-and-run car wrecks...

MIST Car Wreck Claims

[vc_row][vc_column width="2/3"][vc_column_text] It's Just A Fender Bender Many people assume that fender bender accidents don’t cause significant injuries. They see little damage to the car and believe the occupants suffered minor injuries. They think the accident couldn’t have been that serious because the cars were traveling at low speeds when the wreck occurred. All that’s incorrect, and insurance companies use this misinformation to avoid doing what’s right in minor car accidents. Below I explain why this assumption is false and why we vigorously challenge insurance companies who attempt to use this misinformation as a shield. What is a MIST Car Wreck claim? MIST is an...
