My Name is Tray, and I would hire Mr. Blackwell again!!!!
I suffered a work place injury in 2007, I was totally clueless in every aspect of what was involved,related to a workplace injury.
My employer tried to brush off my injury as a NON-Workplace incident. So I started researching online for an Attorney at least to get so basic advice, Mr Blackwell responded to a web posted question from his former partner firm, after a meet and greet I hired Mr Blackwell to represent me. He took the time to explain every aspect possible and made sure that I understood the whole process in absolute detail. After 2 surgeries, Physical therapy, tests, scans, and the workers compensation company withholding compensation checks, delaying approvals for test,scans,medication and even medical treatment itself.
We finally ended up in Court, preparation for Court was indepth and completely through, for both myself and Mr. Blackwell, that I was completely confident we could win my case even though I was alittle scared to death.
He fought fair and hard to make sure all my rights under the Workers compensation laws were protected and that my employer or the Workers Compensation company didn't neglecte their responsibilities under the law. Even within the years after My case was concluded in court with a favorable judgement, if I had an issue, with treatment, procedures, Dr.s, medication, or payments, he was never to busy to help get any of those issues solved if it was possible.
I will sum up my review with this comment.
In the office Mr. Blackwell may seem laid back and soft spoken and he is a very caring, passionate, informative person but he takes to a case like a PITBULL, with the mind set and preparedness to fight for each and every case in Court!
Thank You for reading my review, I hope it helps you maker he choice you need to, you can't go wrong with Mr.Blackwell.

Jeff Blackwell and his associate, Jennifer McKown, did an excellent job on my case. They paid attention to every detail of a complex case and were always one step ahead of the game. They are very knowledgeable, excellent lawyers, and are also kind and caring people. They have good, professional relationships with other lawyers and judges, which gives them good leverage in negotiating. Their professionalism and calm demeanors made the process smoother and less traumatic than it could have been. They also secured a very good outcome in my case.
