Lying in a hospital bed after being struck on my motorcycle by an elderly woman in her 90s, having experienced a compound fracture, multiple titanium plates installed in my left leg, and about 20 screws, I knew I needed a lawyer to run interference between me, the medical providers, and insurance companies. Dealing with the hospital billing office would have been difficult for me as an individual with little knowledge of what types of settlements they might actually take. I needed a lawyer who was knowledgeable and experienced in these matters. I also knew that getting auto insurance companies to pay up would be best handled by a lawyer. The morass of laws, policies, procedures, etc., was more than I cared to tackle. I lacked the knowledge and leverage to deal with these corporate entities. I was already handicapped by my injury and needed to focus on healing, so I looked up injury lawyers online and I am now very glad I settled on Jeffrey Powers.
Mr. Powers came to see me in the hospital shortly after I called him. He went directly to the police station and got the accident report. I believe it was the same day that he had the insurance information on the driver who hit me, the policy limits, etc.. He also was able to get the Underinsured Motorist provision on my own policy to pay out.
My recovery took nearly six months start to finish with three hospital stays and surgical procedures. The hospital socked it to me. The care was very good, but the charges were exorbitant. Mr. Powers represented me with skill and got the hospital to reduce their bill to less than 20% of what they would have required me as an individual to pay. He made sure there was money remaining from the insurance settlement to compensate me for pain and suffering. The results he produced were beyond what I expected.

I cannot express how wonderful he is, I did not have to worry or do any of the work. When the law suit was over I received the maximum without going to court. Jeff did all of the work and is extremely easy to work with. He becomes your friend not just your attorney.

Jeff and Adam worked together to help my wife and I. We were rear-ended on our way to a second home in Florida. The other driver fled the scene on foot & was never found. We in turn had to file a claim against our own insurance company. Jeff & Adam kept us informed of the progress, were knowledgeable and empathetic to our plight. They consistently showed understanding & caring. I would highly recommend this law firm to anyone. My wife & I were truly fortunate to connect with them.

Jeff was very helpful in presenting options for me to pursue in my personal injury matter. He has excellent research skills which uncovered several nuances of law pertaining to the particular industry where I was injured. He worked on a tight schedule to get the case ready for court, and I expect a favorable outcome due to his knowledge of the law and court proceedings. I received personal attention and never felt hurried. Jeff answered all my questions and returned my phone calls at his earliest convenience. I believe he has had my best interests in mind and has been considerate of my time and financial situation. I highly recommend Jeff Powers and his law firm.

There is no limit to the amount of time Jeff will put in for his clients to make sure they get the result they deserve. Jeff handles his cases professionally, ethically and zealously. Not only is he committed to his clients, he is also committed to making his community a better place to live.
