Alan worked with our family on a case that was very difficult for my family at the time. It was over 15 years ago, but I never forgot how well he handled the case and was sensitive to our family's emotional and legal needs. He took the time to get to know us, explain things about the case we did not understand and kept us updated on things as the case progressed. The video they created to help our case was extremely impactful, and still makes me cry today. I would recommend Alan to anyone, as he is not only knowledgeable in the legal field but also trustworthy. I am not sure where we would be today if he was not there to represent my family.
Alan was very thorough and made me feel confident and comfortable. After our initial discussions he put together a folio on me personally, and the injury, that showed a great deal of footwork involved. He was thorough with details, responsive (and quickly) when I had questions or concerns. I was able to email him or text him whenever I thought of things rather than try to recall them at a meeting time. This was particuarly great and made me feel he was always involved with my case. It was my first experience with an attorney and the experience was completely successful in every way.
How do you take a suicide case and prove a wrongful death case? Alan Mortensen can do it!!! Our 17 year old son committed suicide, a parents worse nightmare! With hard work, investigation, everyone telling Alan that he could NOT win this case... he took the case far enough to settle out of court. Mainly settling out of court so family did not have to re-live the nightmare in front of judge, jury and others. Proving that this individual was a major part in our sons action, that it could have been prevented. Alan became more than just an attorney. He was dedicated to our case and became a very good friend. He did not take 'no' for an answer, he fought for our son. No one else would take the case... to hard to prove! Alan helped 'heal' broken hearts and helped us to move on. I would not hesitate to at least talk to Alan and see what he can do for you. If there is anyway to prove the case... Alan will do it! Thank you for your many hours and hard work... but most of all, helping us to heal!
When we hired Alan he hadn't had a lot of experience in our particular kind of case, but over the two years he worked on our case he became an expert in the area. He is dedicated, compassionate, smart and one of the hardest workers we've ever met. We knew he was always looking out for our best interests and would have laid everything on the line for us. We are so grateful that he helped us resolve this case successfully. He is really amazing!
Alan is very professional , and compassionate to his clients. In the time that he worked with us he became a friend as well. He always kept us well informed on what was going on with the case and went the extra mile to do what he could. We felt very comfortable with him. He is very trustworthy.
