Selecting an attorney to represent you in a personal injury or wrongful death case can be a stressful, confusing, and time consuming process. Edward M.

His office is in Cookeville, Tennessee, and he routinely travels to meet with clients and witnesses in various counties throughout Tennessee. He also has access to experts who are trained in the various areas needed to evaluate the claims to determine fault, including structural engineers (for example, when a building under construction collapses with workers on top of it), accident reconstructionists (engineers who have specialized knowledge and training to determine the mechanics of how an automobile accident happened), certified fraud investigators, life care planners (experts who can forecast what expenses the victim will have in the future as a result of the injuries sustained), economists (who can determine financial impact), and the like.
