Possible Client
I called Mr. Vaught in an attempt to receive more information about auto fraud from a local dealership. Not only did Mr. Vaught take the time to walk me through the legal process and answer all of my questions, he went out of his way to obtain documents that I was having trouble obtaining myself. If I need a lawyer for my case, I will not hesitate to hire Mr. Vaught on the spot!

Client Review
Attorney Vaught is very knowledgeable and someone you can trust, He never told me anything that he could not do and always over delivered. He also cares about you as a person and doesn't make you feel like you are just "a case". He took all of the stress out of the whole process and always made us feel that he was in control and everything would be fine. By far THE BEST!! attorney I've ever had. Would definitely recommend him. My lawyer for life.

This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Relied too much on Doctors results
Waited until all final Doctor's services and Medicare payments were reviewed. I believe the amount to settle the case was very small as no one really gave any thought to the future continuation of my injury could last rest of my life.
