Practice areas
  1. Workers compensation
    Depending on the type of work you do, there may be different types of potential risks presented by job duties, building conditions, environmental toxins, machinery or objects being used, and various other factors that contribute to on the job injury.

  2. Car accident
    Should it be found that the car crash could have been prevented if the proper precautions had been taken, the injured individual may want to consider contacting an experienced personal injury attorney to determine whether they have a case.

  3. Medical malpractice
    Situations sometimes occur where a patient is injured because of negligence on the part of someone in the medical community. In such instances, the negligent individual who caused the injury can be held responsible for their actions in a court of law

  4. Personal injury

Excellent Lawer
Mr, Poe was easy to work with, and fast to respond to any inquiries I had. He made my case easy to get through, and professionally handled any hurdles encountered along the way. I would definitely use Mr. Poe again, and recommend him to anyone going through a worker's comp case, as I was.
