  2. Car accident
    30%
    Car, truck, motorcycle accidents -- we handle them all. The insurance company is maneuvering from day one to keep from paying injured victims the money needed to restore them to where they were before the accident. You need someone on your side from day one. Call us for a free consultation.

  3. Nursing home abuse and neglect
    30%
    Nursing homes provide a vital service for loved ones who can no longer care for themselves. When they violate your trust and your loved one suffers, we help set things right. Call us for a free consultation.

Neither of my parents went to college.  My dad was a maintenance man and farmer.  My mother worked in a bank.  My parents worked hard all day at work, and then even harder at home.  They also taught me that regular people sometimes need help.

I grew up in barns and fields, not club houses and swimming pools.  I still know the importance of hard work, and I appreciate people who work hard for their families.  If your ability to work for your family has been taken away by someone else's dangerous action, I'll work hard to help you through the tough times. Together, we'll keep your family moving forward.

Gary Massey Saved My Life!
Gary Massey was a huge help to me! I had deposited $4000 into an online stock market trading account to learn how Stocks, Options, and ForEx trading worked. Within 6 months I had used up my $4000 making many online trades (I learned a lot). 16 months later the IRS came after me and said I owed them $119,611.54 because of stock market trades I had made. To my surprise, the IRS thought that every one of the trades I made was a positive gain. (How much more stupid can the IRS get?) Gary helped me prove to the IRS that every trade I made was a “loss” (not a gain) and that I spent the $4000 I had deposited in the stock market (without any gains). Without Gary's help the IRS would have thrown me in jail for no reason! We really need more attorneys like Gary Massey to teach the government how to mange their money!

Review
just now In my opinion, Gary Massey lied to me and is collecting, in my view unearned funds, he said he would wave on a class action suit that deemed me disabled.He referred me to an Alabama law firm stating his firm was not capable of dealing with such a high profile case. He is taking $5,000 just for referring me to another law firm and having his assistant come to my home to try to get me to sign off on a $7,000 settlement! My Mom and I met with him in June of 2017, our one and only meeting with Mr. Massey (and he knew we were recording the meeting) during which he said if I chose to take the offer on the table or go with the special master that he would wave his fee! Now, in 2020, after receiving the special master's decision, he seems to be suffering with dementia, and says he never said that. Also, when I called his office to speak with them about his invoice and the fact he had said he would wave his fee, the receptionist could not find my file, nor was I in their computer database.
