Dave is the best lawyer I've ever dealt with. I don't think he could be any more professional. Anything I ever needed done on my cases he did it right away and if I called him he would respond right away even on weekends , vacations, he's just a great lawyer and even better person.
David represented me in a very complicated workers comp case. From the beginning, he made me feel very comfortable with his knowledge of the issues, he always addressed my concerns in a timely manner and he always made me feel like I was important to him. This case started as a temporary disability and ended up being a total disability case, so it was very lengthy. David kept me informed every step of the way, sometimes sending me e-mails when you would think he would be home with his family. He works hard for you, very, very hard! If he takes your case, he commits to it! You can trust him to be there for you as your attorney! I feel very blessed to have had him as my attorney. If you have questions, he explains things so that you understand them. Sometimes I asked things that were probably silly, but David never treated me that way. He always treated me with dignity and acted like every question was important. And, when it comes to trying your case, David is a real pro! He knows how to tell your story and make sure that the judge sees your side. I haven't testified in court before and I was really nervous, I was so glad that it was David asking me the questions at our hearing. He prepared me, made me feel comfortable, helped me stay calm, and got me through it. Even when the defense attorney cross-examined me, as long as I made eye contact with David when it got bad, I felt better. And David's staff is also very helpful! From the moment you walk into their offices you feel comfortable. If David isn't available, they are always there to help you. Whether it is just to let you know when he will be returning, or to get you information, they do their best to help and are always extremely pleasant! Knowing that my case is coming to a close, I am glad that the hearing and the depositions and such are over. But, there is sadness too, because David has been a joy to work with and that is also ending. If anyone in my family or any of my friends have a need for a attorney, David will be the attorney that I will send them to. And I will know that if David is representing them, that they will have the best representation there is!
After incurring a number of serious work injuries and unable to continue working as I had previously I was fortunate to engage David in representing me and my case for worker's compensation. From day one David exhibited genuine interest, care and compassion regarding my situation, more importantly me. He took great time listening, gathering and reviewing facts in all facets of my injuries incurred while working. He was always honest and straight forward with me regarding next steps in my claims, always involving me in final decisions. Throughout the time it took to come to a settlement David and his staff would call and check on my well being and any changes in my status. He always made me feel that he sincerely cared about me and my family. David's attention to detail and diligence to fight on my behalf resulted in a very favorable outcome and settlement. I honestly don't know where we'd be without his efforts. Even post settlement David would periodically call and check on my well being. How many attorney's do that? I would highly recommend, without reservation, David to anyone injured and seeking compensation. David's high ethical and moral standards, along with professionalism and knowledge, sets him apart from so many of his peers. Don't waste your trying the rest. Go for the best. See David Kempston for the representation you want and deserve!
David Kempston is a very caring and detailed attorney. He listens and responds quickly with your legal case. We have used his services for two different complicated work comp cases and he got all the correct info and we won both with his assistance. He is very supportive at all times including going to Work Comp court. We are very grateful for his help and his competent office assistants. We recommend him to anyone who is in need of an excellent attorney.
I have had an ongoing work comp claim since I was injured performing my job as a Paramedic in 1982, I had had a couple of other Attorneys in the early years of my case, one whom I felt was not very productive in keeping me updated as things were going forward with my employers never say die attitude. The 2nd attorney I hired did a good job in getting me a nice amount to build a wheelchair accessible home, and when the next issue arose he advised me he was changing sides to represent employers and recommended David Kempston. David did an excellent job in relating new injuries and other complications to the original injuries suffered in 1982.
I would highly recommend David to anyone needing legal help with their work comp cases.
My wife also used David when she sustained a work related injury.
I have had to consult David several times to check on certain aspects of my case.
Being referred to David Kempston was the best conclusion to a very hard fought case between my employer and myself. David's expertise and knowledge were very instrumental in bringing my case to a most favorable conclusion. I didn't drive a jack hammer, which would be considered as high repetitive work . I started out in a typing pool and from there graduated to being a secretary doing typewriter and a computer daily. This was repetitive work and David brought to light that my carpal tunnel symptoms and condition should be covered under workers compensation. David worked tirelessly gathering information to substantiate my claim. I don't think there was not a book or document that he did not research to achieve my outcome. His dedication to his clients, is without a doubt his most admirable attribute. David Brian Kempston went to extremes for myself and because of his caring, knowledge and expertise in workers compensation field my claim was concluded most favorably. David will turn heaven and earth for you to get you the compensation you deserve. When you first meet with David, you know right away, this is the person you want to take your case. David is easy to talk to. He listens to what you say. Immediately you form a bond! That was how it was for myself. If you have any fears, forget about them...David will ease your concerns. He is a super attorney! He will be there for you through thick and thin..
I have know David Kempston since 2003. His knowledge, expertise in the work comp field, helped me to achieve a most favorable outcome against unbelievable odds. I believe that when we first meet, David knew he had a job on his hands. I was at my wits end. Didn't know who else to share my concerns and fears with and David took my case. Just knowing that I had someone in my corner for a change relieved me substantially. It was an on-going battle against two companies, of whom neither wanted to take responsibility for my injury. Under Davids expertise in court, dealing with two different insurers, he made me feel I was his only case. His caring, concern for my mental health during court dates was unbelievable. My case has lasted a long time and to this day David still helps me out with certain issues that are still on-going. If it were not for his kindness, knowledge of his job, keeping me informed of my legal rights, and just down right being there for me I probably would not be in the safe, secure state that I am now. If you are looking for a good work comp attorney, there are many. If you are looking for a GREAT attorney; someone to stand behind you all the way, that would be David Brian Kempston. He is a PEOPLE Person attorney. He will be there for you through thick and thin. Words cannot express my appreciation for David. I am so glad I have had the privilege to know and be friends with David.
I have known Mr. Kempston almost 20 years now. I have used him several times for work comp issues.
I recommend him to anyone looking for legal help. He will ALWAYS be there for you.
I am using his expertise right now on a right knee replacement. Without legal guidance I would be
lost. Please don't hesitate to use this fine lawyer and individual.
Since injuring my back in 1978 I had multiple issues and problems with the employer and insurer. This led to many disputes over the years. Having been told to live with pain for the rest of my life, I reached a point when I could no longer continue working. At that time I hired David Kempston and he took on my case and worked out for me a settlement that I was very comfortable with. He was always attentive to my calls and responded quickly when I would whine about things which he would assure me it would all come together. He was right and I am so grateful for his hard work. He goes the extra mile for me as a client, and is the type of person you could leave your wallet and checkbook with and no it is safe. Again, I am extremely grateful for David Kempston's work and highly recommend him to someone who has a work injury and needs the finest representation. If you want to hire somebody with excellent work ethics hire David Kempston. Signed Robert B Hanson.
