Would highly recommend for any personal injury case
After having been involved in an auto accident, I contacted the Law Firm of Rocky McElhaney to handle my personal injury legal issues. Due to the unfortunate circumstances of having been involved in two auto wrecks over the years I actually had to hire the firm twice. No one ever wants to have to deal with lawyers or be in the middle of a insurance dispute but if you do, I can honestly say that these guys are consistent and they took care of me both times. The entire staff at this firm is very professional and extremely personable. It was my husband's and my experience that they all work together as a team and genuinely care about their clients health and overall well-being. I would highly recommend the Rocky McElhaney Law Firm to anyone who has experienced personal injuries due to an accident- be it auto or any other type. I would especially like to thank Rocky McElhaney and our Attorney, Hunter Higdon and his Paralegal, Gina Dupree. They are truly the best of the best!

What a great lawyer and group of people at Rocky McElhaney Law Firm
In 2013, three years ago, I was in a car accident and needed an attorney because my back was hurt and I was told I would require surgery. The attorney I was assigned was Hunter Higdon. From day one, he showed he believed in me and in what I had to say, and said he would fight for me and make sure I was treated fairly. I worked with Mr. Higdon for three years and through three surgeries. He was always available and his staff were the friendliest people, I felt like I was talking to a friend every time I called the office. My case was never tossed around to lots of different case managers and lawyers within the firm. When I called I would be talking to Hunter or my paralegal Tonia. Whenever I called to speak with my attorney, they went out of their way to locate him and get us connected to talk. It is like they always took me seriously and always made me feel as if my case was important to them. Mr. Higdon was not only a great attorney, he sincerely cared about me. I had other issues come up with my family, with my finances when I was off work for surgery, or with some of the doctors, and Mr. Higdon helped me resolve all my issues- not just with my lawsuit from the car accident, but other issues that were causing me problems. He told me that he truly cared about my well-being and he showed me that he really cared. Three years and three surgeries later, my case was resolved. At each turn, Mr. Higdon directed me on which direction to take. He is a real attorney that will make sure you end up feeling like you had an attorney that cared about you. That is how I feel. The staff at the Rocky McElhaney Law Firm turned out to be some of the best people I could ever come to know. If you are ever in an accident and want justice and want feel satisfied knowing every action has been taken on your behalf to get the maximum recovery, then you need to call he Rocky McElhaney Law Firm and you need to get Mr. Hunter Higdon as your attorney. Before I decided to call Rocky, I looked up many law firms and attorneys. Rocky, Hunter and the whole firm had the highest accolades and best reviews from previous clients of any other lawyer or law firm on the internet that I found! I have never had to experience fighting a lawsuit like this before, but one thing is for sure, now I know who to call if I or my family, my co-workers, or my friends ever find themselves in a similar situation. I will always have Mr. Higdon's number available, and I will always be forever grateful to this wonderful, tough, very intelligent and knowledgeable attorney and the great law firm he represents- the Rocky McElhaney Law Firm. I am just so thrilled with the outcome of my case. It goes without saying that Hunter Higdon and his team are the toughest and most caring attorneys and legal people that you could have represent you. I always felt confident that Hunter Higdon was my attorney fighting for me. I thank you Mr. McElhaney, from the bottom of my heart! What a wonderful experience to come out of being physically hurt in a car accident!
