    I referred numerous clients to Attorney Tim Trecek. I received extremely positive feedback from all the clients I have referred to Attorney Trecek. I would highly recommend his services to anyone seeking assistance in personal injury cases, wrongful death cases, and product liability cases.

    I endorse this lawyer. I referred a case to Mr. Trecek involving the wrongful death of a construction worker who was killed when he inadvertently came into contact with the rotating fins at the discharge end of a front discharge cement mixer while performing his normal duties. There was no witness to the occurence. Within hours of the referall, Mr. Trecek took swift action to preserve all available evidence and to have the instrumentality inspected by a leading engineer. A Product Liability lawsuit was promptly filed and the defendant manufactuer (giant in the industry) fought the case every step of the way. At trial, Mr.Trecek argued that the Mixer should have been guarded despite the fact that no other injuries or deaths were reported due to the design at issue and no other manufacturer in the United States incorporated such a guard in their design. Trecek PREVAILED at TRIAL against all odds. His victory was the result of tremendous litigations skills and brilliant trial skills
