Top 10 Attorney for Personal Injury in Tennessee.  Super Lawyer 2016, 2017, 2018. AV Rated by Martindale-Hubbell.  

 

I have been practicing law for over 26 years.  In that time I have represented only the injured victims of accidents,  never the insurance companies.  I consider it an honor to help people in their time of need, assisting them to collect a fair settlement. 

We are a small firm, allowing for personal service.  When you hire me to represent you, you get to talk to me, not an associate or paralegal. I will be the one who works to settle your case and if it goes to trial, I will be there in the courtroom fighting for your rights. 

 I have years of experience in auto accident, truck accident, and wrongful death claims.  I have settled these type cases as well as tried these cases in court.

"The Man With The Plan"
I was in a head on accident with a narcotic police May 12, 2018, which was the officer's fault. But I didn't really know which lawyer I could trust for my case. So one my relatives suggested that I should let Mr. Sauer get the job done. And that's exactly what he did and got me a lot more compensation than ever expected. Mr. Sauer went over every piece of detail of my case with me being honest and with integrity. He's a lot different from other RIP Off lawyers who tend to hustle their own clients. I strongly recommend Mr. Stephen A. Sauer to anyone who has a case with a vehicle accident. He's the man for the job !!

Outstanding Attorney
I hired Stephen to handle my case, and it couldn't have been handled more professionally! He kept me informed at every step of the legal process. My case was quite complex, and Stephen was victorious! My family and I only use him, and we continue to refer him to friends.

Great guy and amazing lawyer
Hiring Mr. Stephen Saur was one of the best decisions I've ever made. I was in a car accident with my girlfriend that resulted in me breaking my femur, and later developing blood clots in my lungs while hospitalized and almost dieing. It was one of the hardest and most overwhelming situations I've ever had to deal with. I decided to call mr. Saur just for advice, and He was nice enough to invite me to his office and answer every question I had and he did charge me a dime for that. That's when I decided to hire him, and I'm extremely happy I did. Mr. Saur took care of everything, I didn't have to worry about anything dealing with my case. He was extremely easy to get in touch with, and every time I heard from him he kept me updated on everything that was going on with my case. Not one time during the time he was in my service did I ever have to worry or wonder what was going on with my case. Trust me you'll be glad that you hired him when you do. I can honestly say he does everything within his power to make sure that you are compensated fully. I never could of done without him, and if I ever have a problem again that might require for me to get a lawyer, Stephen Saur will be the first person I call.

A true seasoned professional
I recently had Mr. Sauer represent me in a criminal matter. With over 23 years of experience and an office right down the street from the CJC, he knows the system inside and out. He has a good working relationship with prosecutors and key players. Stephen was able to negotiate an outcome that was very favorable to me and will save me years of problems. I highly recommend him. He's the real deal!

"THE BEST OF THE BEST"
Attorney Sauer has been nothing less than AWESOME!Long story short,I was involved in an automobile accident in which the opposite party's insurance did not want to compensate me for anything (i.e. damages,medical bills,loss wages,pain and suffering etc) despite their client being at fault. We had to file a lawsuit, go to trail, and guess what, WE WON!During the whole entire process,Attorney Sauer made sure the he and I NEVER missed a beat. His professionalism is phenomenal and he surely goes the extra mile.Attorney Sauer is absolutely the "BEST OF THE BEST"!Being that he was understanding, organized, attentive, persistent, and very much so EFFECTIVE,made the whole "lawsuit headache" a breeze.I am very pleased with my outcome and I would recommend him to any and everyone!Attorney Sauer is your go to guy!THANKS AGAIN ATTORNEY SAUER!!!

Mr. Sauer got back to me in a timely manner and answered all my questions thru e-mail at no charge. I would hire him if I needed a good attorney.

Great Lawyer! He Got My DUI Dismissed!
I was charged with Driving Under the Influence and unfortunately had a high BAC reading. Attorney Sauer investigated my arrest and was able to get the breath test suppressed. This resulted in my DUI charge being dismissed. I must say that I had many a sleepless night wondering how I was going to keep my job if I went to jail and my driver's license got suspended . But thanks to Stephen I avoided jail time and kept my license. I would highly recommend Mr. Sauer for any legal needs as he did an incredible job for me.

Excellent Trial Lawyer!
Stephen Sauer represented me after I was burned during a cosmetic procedure at a local salon. They didn't even want to pay for my medical bills after they scarred my face. When they wouldn't negotiate he took it to trial. Mr. Sauer did a fantastic job and I couldn't be more pleased with my surprisingly generous award from the Court. He was always quick to return my calls and was able to answer all of my questions. I always knew what was going on with my case which was a huge relief as this had been a source of stress in my life. Never wanted to need a lawyer, but sure am happy to have found Mr. Sauer!

Satisfied customer
After I was hit by a truck in an auto accident, I had no clue how to manage my medical bills and deal with the insurance companies. Attorney Stephen Sauer was referred to me by a colleague and I must say that I was very satisfied with his representation. He was professional, trustworthy and easy to work with. He did an excellent job negotiating my settlement and I highly recommend him if you need representation after an accident!

Great auto accident lawyer
I was hit from behind by an 18 wheeler and was hospitalized for several days. I hired Stephen Sauer to represent me against the trucking company. He got me more than I ever dreamed I would get from their insurance company! Mr. Sauer really helped me out when I needed help the most. I liked the fact that his firm is small and that he always returned my calls. Whenever I had a question he answered it, not his paralegal! I would definitely recommend Stephen Sauer if you ever need a lawyer.
