  • Carter William Hick

    Stu is a great lawyer and good human being. Before focusing his practice exclusively on plaintiff's work, Stu did spend some time defending against personal injury claims. This experience gives Stu a unique perspective that most lawyers don't have--he knows how the other side thinks! This "inside knowledge" works to the benefit of his clients.
