Review of PI case
I had a very positive experience with Brett Kurland. He was extremely attentive, patient and caring during all of our conferences. Most importantly, he handled my case in an expeditious and timely fashion. The results were extraordinary and I would refer my best friend to him. Kathleen Garrett

We are completely satisfied
Brett and his team did a phenomenal job handling our case. From the very moment we called, Brett and his team were there for us, answered all of our questions, provided us with a detailed plan of how things would work, and most importantly, gave us the confidence that everything would be OK. The communication with Brett and his firm was as expected, and then some. We could call them any time and know that they would answer the phone, answer our questions and provide us with all the information that we needed. We never felt like we were bothering them, or could not call or talk to anyone there if we needed them or had a question. There were times that we would discuss our case and how things were going, and we always were informed with detailed information on the progress and where things stood. Additionally, they constantly checked on us to see how we were doing through it all. It was that personal touch that just reaffirmed that we had made the right decision in contacting Brett and his firm after the accident. We were treated like a part of their family. The thing that also stands out is how hard he worked for us in getting our claim settled for the amount he said he was going to get. This review is not to make things all about the final amount by any means, but to know that we had someone representing us, that was not backing down from the other person's insurance company was so appreciated and the exact reason you hire an attorney. There was never a time that he was not confident in how things would settle. He always gave us the confidence that things would work out, and that we would be made whole again. And that is exactly what he delivered. There was not a time during the entire year plus, working with Brett and his firm, that we felt like we were "losing" or that things were not going to go our way. He even battled our doctors offices and physical therapists that were trying to over charge for services. He saved us THOUSANDS in medical bills. Once again, just confirming that we had made the right decision in retaining Brett and his team. We could not have gotten the outcome we did if it was not for Brett, his team and everyone that was a part of this. He is relentless in his pursuit of your best interests, your care and that he is delivering on his commitments. We would recommend them to anyone.

AWESOME!!! AWESOME !!! AWESOME !!!
Where do I begin? I have NOTHING but IMMENSE GRATITUDE to this law firm. Culpepper Kurland is absolutely phenomenal. The attorney I used was Brett Kurland and he and his whole staff are just simply incredible. From the second, I made the phone call to the office to inquire about using their services. I spoke to a woman named Shea and she was sweet, knowledgeable and super helpful. The next step was a gentleman named Wayne, who came to my house to go over the whole scenario of what happened. This guy came to my home vs. me going into the office and made it so easy and comfortable for me. . When I tell you, they are so quick and thorough. I can’t express how important that is when you make a phone call and they call you back in two seconds. Throughout the whole process, I dealt with Berneese and Angie are the case managers, who take care of all the research information. The two of them are the sweetest, nicest, kindest people and so personable that each time I had to call I felt like I was speaking to my sister. They work with Brett Kurland closely and I am sure he is forever thankful for these two because they are amazing!!!!!! The whole process was made to be so easy. I did everything over the phone and it was just so painless. I have never ever used a lawyer before in my life and if I ever need one again for an accident, I would definitely be using Culpepper Kurland…… I have referred so many people to this company! Brett, Berneese, and Angie are like a family. I seriously mean that. They were together and get the job done. If you are looking for a lawyer, and you’ve been in an accident, slip and fall, or anything Accident related please listen to me they on the BEST !!!!!! I promise you you will have no regrets. When I first was thinking about looking for a lawyer, I was kind of nervous, thinking I don’t know what to ask or what to say or if I should even be calling and they put my mind at ease from the second I called. I truly mean that. I was recommended from a friend who told me they are awesome until this day she tells me all the time, aren’t you glad you called. Like I said, I was very skeptical on calling and now I realize it was the best thing I ever did….. Look no further !!!!! Call them now !!!! What are you waiting for? Here’s the number…… Tell them I referred you !!!!! CULPEPPER KURLAND ARE THE BEST !!!!! (And the ENTIRE STAFF) !!!!!!!

Didn't know what to do without Brett Kurland
Brett Kurland with CK Firm was amazing! My wife and I, were so overwhelmed right after the accident. Between trying to schedule doctors appointments and finding doctors that would work with auto accident victims. It was very stressful. Once we retained Brett Kurland the process was a whole lot easier. With his guidance and experience my wife and I were able to clear our heads and concentrate on getting the care my son needed to recover. We are forever grateful for all of the help through this difficult time! THANK YOU

This was my first time ever dealing with an attorney for anything. Mr. Kurland and his staff were incredible throughout the entire process! They not only worked to ensure I was given a fair settlement but they were concerned about my physical well being. If you are looking for an attorney with an amazing staff then Mr. Kurland is it!

Support when needed!!!!
I was rear ended by a truck while stopped at a traffic light in my small car. It led to major neck and back injuries and I was completely confused as to what to do. I contacted Culpepper Kurland and they first assured me that I had help in going through the process of dealing with my injuries and the great damage to my car. They helped me to find medical assistance, made documentation very easy, and supported me the whole step of the way along with their wonderful wonderful staff. I felt that I was very favorably compensated and felt nothing but support throughout the whole process. I would recommend them to anyone and God forbid we use them again if I had to.

Highly recommend brett kurland
I was involved in an accident that required me to be transported by ambulance to a hospital. I was hit from behind while stopped at a stop light. I was in alot of pain and I sustained numerous injuries. The day after the accident, the other persons insurance company gave me a hard time about my rental car. they kept harassing me about giving statements, ect.. i decided to see if i could find an attorney to take over all the calls and help me. I asked friends for a recommendation and the law office of culpepper and kurland were the top recommendation, so i called them. They came to my house to speak with me the next day. Immediately after hiring them, the phone calls and harassment stopped. They took care of everything. I went to all the different doctors appts i needed and inevitably i had to have surgery. They always showed concern and were sympathetic to my situation. All the stress was taken away and i was able to concentrate on healing and getting better. The office staff and colleagues of brett kurland are amazing. They would call just to see how i was doing and if i needed anything. they were always extremely pleasant and genuinely concerned. They always kept me in the loop as to where the case was at. Brett fought for me and ultimately was able to get to a settlement that i was extremely happy with. I would highly recommend brett kurland and his law firm for all your needs. They are amazing and i thank god for my friends recommendation that brought them to me!

Great Experience !!!
It was a great experience with this firm. I was hit by a drunk driver and my car was total loss. My whole family was injured (4 people) and this attorney firm were exceptional and really helpful. They got the ball rolling for my whole family and got right to work with my case. My case was handled very carefully by the attorney "Brett Kurland" and transition from start to end was very smooth. Fantastic communication process and very straightforward. Case was completed in just 4 months without any headache. I see the quality of work at every aspects whenever needed. Just experience once and you will find all these qualities that I personally experienced. Thank you!!

The best lawyer ever
Brett was awesome. He was well knowledgeable about everything. He kept me informed about the whole process. I felt like he made himself available when I needed him or had any questions which I did have a lot of them. I was very intimidated by everything and he put me at ease. He treated my like I was a person and not a number. I actually spoke with him and met with him frequently. I would recommend him to anyone. He simply just made me feel like I was priority.

Brett Kurland A trusted Lawyer
Brett Kurland changed my whole mindset on lawyers!!!! He truly is a man that wasnt all about the money I had had a bad accident that in the end had left me not able to work and in the midst of it my husband had decided to leave me and Brett was very concerned for me as a person. He worked diligently on my case, if ever I called to talk to someone they were always available he did not make me feel like I was just another pay check. I could never explain to him how truly thankful and grateful to him. He will never know the depth of my gratitude. I would refer him to anyone. I was a truck driver so I always heard of how the attorneys were against truck drivers but he did not judge me he took my case and he won every penny. He had many obstacles four different cases in one and he handled everyone of them with determination keeping me in mind through it all. Every step of the way they keep me informed they called me to give me updates. It was not an overnight process it took time but from the very start I was told that it could take a year or two as to give me an option as weather I wanted to hire them or not. And I am so glad that I did. I would say to any truck driver or truck driver wives before you make a decision on an attorney make sure you consult with Brett because I dont know any other attorney (though I had experience with some work comp attorney") but I know that when your world is turned upside down that your case is one less thing you have to worry about because you can bet that he is working diligently with you in mind threw the whole thing. You can rest on just having to deal with the other things that come along with the accident. I pray that I would never need another attorney but I would not think twice about hiring him again. Just to tell you about my case a little I went through the windshield of a dump truck. It was not my fault I got no tickets and by the grace of God I survived. And through this trauma I was forced to try to find an attorney, and while I had broken collar bone, cracked ribs, lost of heavy bruising, shifted spine, trouble breathing he checked on me just to find out about me. His assistant Angie was also wonderful. I could just go on and on but long story short if you are looking for an attorney I would highly recommend Brett Kurland, the add you see on T.V. about attorneys his proved to be true, He was 100% concerned for me and about me. Brett Kurland did not fail me in any way and I feel like he stayed honest with me threw the whole process. So all I have left to say is if you are looking for a attorney make sure you start there because I truly believe at that point your search will be over!!!!!!!!! Love him for all he done God Bless him!!!!! BIG THANKS BRETT YOUR THE BEST!!!!!!!! Also a big shout out to Angie Thank you!!!!! And what a polite staff Thank you all for making this a painless process!!!!!

Semi vs Chevy.
Nov 11 2015 730pm a semi goes across 3 lanes of traffic and a 15ft median and pulls right in front of my chevy without stopping. He cut the lanes at an angle i never saw him. Ran right into his cab. Completly destroyed my chevy but i lived. Didnt walk away but counted my blessings. I looked on Avvo and saw Mr. Kurland here and hired him the next day. 6 months of physical therapy and im still having to do daily stretches for mobility. Brett kurland fought for me. And he kept me in the loop at every turn. Always letting me know what was going on. Once it got to the negotiations he spoke to me directly and personally called me to find out how things were going. I am fully satisfied with the money he got me and my family. I strongly recommend him to anyone in need of a lawyer who will fight for you. He never lied nor led me to believe anything that wasnt true. If i need a lawyer in the future i know exactly who i will be going to. Thank you Brett Kurland From the Roberts family
