My mother was a passenger in a horrible car crash in Georgia when the car in which she was passenger was hit by an ex-convict who had no insurance, and who later died from a cocaine overdose. When I learned of mom's injury, I immediately flew in from California. As I work in Silicon Valley, I contacted Ken Shigley online. He met with me and my dad at the hospital ICU. He had a comforting manner, listened empathically to us in our angst, and calmly discussed with us the immediate and long term legal issues. Unfortunately, mom died from her injuries. When we were ready to deal with it, Ken laid out the strategy to optimize net recovery for the family, orchestrating all the liability, insurance, probate and Medicare / Tricare reimbursement issues. He communicated well, was sensitive to our concerns and obtained an optimal outcome. I strongly recommend Ken Shigley to anyone going through this sort of thing.
When tragedy struck our family in the form of the wrongful death of our son and caused me physical injuries and changed our lives forever, we dragged our feet about hiring a lawyer. I didn't want to face having to go through the stress. Big mistake. The first thing you do is hire local counsel.
I found Mr. Shigley by surfing the web, and we got a listening ear. He was realistic, professional and worked very hard in our behalf. Not only that, he
showed a genuine concern for our family, and ran interference for us on a number of issues relative to our case.
If I had it to do over again, I would have hired him sooner had I known about Avvo.
I was hit almost head-on by a large truck in 2004, causing a painful and permanent injury to my left leg and low back. My previous attorney gave up on finding any way to get more than $100,000 for my injury. A friend referred me to Ken Shigley in Atlanta. The case went to trial in Calhoun, Gordon County, GA, in March 2007. The highest verdict in the history of Gordon County was about $800,000. Ken Shigley blew away the other side's witnesses on cross examination, and did a fantastic job illustrating how my injury has affected my life. He really had the jury with him. He asked the jury for $1,327,241.54, and did it in a way that made it sound cheap. The verdict a day later was for $2,345,940.17, nearly three times the highest verdict in the history of that county. It was like the movie "The Verdict." I feel so blessed to have had Ken Shigley as my lawyer!!!
