I was exposed to personal injury in college and immediately knew it was for me. In law school I was fortunate enough to find a small personal injury law firm that needed an energy boost and a new strategy. By my second year in law school I was named the head of the personal injury department and had successfully changed the marketing approach and streamlined the case handling procedures which resulted in increasing the monthly revenue by 55%.
Following law school I began working within the personal injury department at a firm that averaged roughly 120 sign ups and 560k (190k fees) in settlements monthly. Three months after beginning with this firm and a month after being licensed I was named Managing Attorney of the Personal Injury Department. My first month managing, my department hit their goal of 885k in settlements; it had only been done once in the three prior years to my taking over. During my year as Managing Attorney we met and exceeded the goal all 12 months and collected roughly 4.4 million in settlements more than 2012 and 4.7 million more than 2011. This was done by developing a culture among employees where we truly cared about our clients and were attentive to their needs.
At the beginning of 2014 I decided it was time to partner with Geoffrey Dashner and use our collective experience and passion for helping clients on a more attentive scale. I have big plans for the future of Dashner & Thomas and hope to help as many Texans that have been injured as the result of the negligence of another as I'm given the opportunity to.
