Superb Law Team!!
Fetterman & Associates took my personal injury case when other law firms wouldn't. My case was strong but the journey would entail alot of hard work, tenacity, persistence and time, including going up against adversaries with tremendous resources. When Mr. Fetterman heard about my case and how other firms declined to represent me, he took that as a challenge, and without hesitation he took my case immediately, and that was the beginning of our journey together. What separated Fetterman & Associates from the other firms was the willingness to fight for me, to represent me knowing the journey would be an arduous one, with the goal of bringing this case to a successful resolution. Mr. Fetterman & Silvia my case manager, communicated with me every step of the way from the very beginning. Their concern & compassion, in addition to having the Fetterman Team in my corner fighting for me every step of the way was extremely comforting. My case resulted in a successful resolution of which I was very satisfied. I highly recommend Fetterman & Associates to anyone who is in need of a personal injury law firm and is looking for a Team that will not only fight the fight as hard as they can on your behalf, but who will also have a genuine concern & compassion for you personally. I want to once again thank Mr. Fetterman, Silvia and the entire Fetterman Team for all they have done for me throughout our journey. Thank you.....

Once a client, now an employee!
Fetterman & Associates handled a case for me 12 years ago. I respected and appreciated how well Mr. Fetterman and his staff treated my wife and myself during our case. The staff was attentive and helpful throughout my case. Always available to speak with me regarding any questions I had during the whole process. Being a retired Police Lieutenant at the time, I decided I wanted to be a part of a company that really cared about their clients. I asked Evan Fetterman if I could work for him and I have been part of the Law Team, as his lead investigator, ever since.

A great and reliable Attorney
Mr. Fetterman was indeed a wonderful attorney representing me in my law suit. He kept me well informed of my choices and explained my case to my understanding. His staff is also efficient in aiding me along the way. Carol

If you are looking for integrity, look no further.
Fetterman & Associates has a ton of integrity. They believe in family, and relationships, and doing what is right. Evan took the time out to listen, read through all of the documents I sent, and tried to help me with my real estate contract. After all of that, the best part is that he asked me to call him the next morning to let him know how it turned out. He is a truly caring person, and it was comforting to know that he was concerned and wanted only the best for me. I knew that if the seller continued to threaten and push the issue, he would have my back. And that meant the world to me.
