Made the best of a bad situtation
Had an great experience with Brian and his staff. He came to our home the day after our wreck and Amanda was always checking in with us to see how we were doing. Once we healed up the process was extremely smooth and quick. This was our first time dealing with a situation like we were in and I am grateful for the level of empathy and care that we were provided. Strongly recommend Brian.

Auto accident suit
Brian Dettman did an excellent job on my case. After a rollover accident and a substandard offer from the at fault driver's insurance company, Mr Dettman managed the claim seamlessly!

Automobile accident
When I consulted with Brian about my accident, he gave me excellent advice. He never put pressure on me to hire him. He was very upfront and straight forward with me. After I hired him, he kept me informed with every step; always answered my questions fully. He is very easy to talk with. His staff always treated with respect. The whole process was very comfortable. I would highly recommend a person to contact him before you make a decision.

Brian Dettman got me a settlement that changed my life!
After my accident I was injured and overwhelmed because I had never been in such a serious accident or hired an attorney. From the moment I contacted him, Brian showed genuine concern and care for me and my case. Not only did he and his law office handle all the dealings with the insurance company and hospitals, but I also had a new car within a week. After months of seeing a chiropractor I was still having major back and neck pain and while I was hoping to get a settlement of at least $3,000 for my pain and suffering, Brian was able to get me over five times that amount. This is life changing for me! I can now afford to get regular massages and seek any additional medical treatment I need. I have advised anyone I know - if you are in an accident, contact Brian Dettman immediately! Not only is he so passionate and talented at what he does, he is also such a down to earth, straight forward and hilarious person! I can not recommend him enough!!! He has been a miracle in my life!

Highly recommended.
After my accident I consulted with the Dettman Law Group and chose to have them represent me in my case. Throughout the entirety of my case, Brian Dettman was attentive, and communicated with me on all movement with my case. From dealing with all applicable insurance companies and attorneys Brian kept my best interest in the forefront. Having to deal with this type of stuff is not common for the average person, thus having an attorney and staff who truly cares meant the world to me. I highly recommend Brian and his team if you are ever in a situation that warrants it. Trust me the insurance companies will take advantage of you if you are not represented by someone like Brian. At the end of the day money talks. Brian secured me 975% more money than the insurance companies first offer.

Worth every dollar
I hired Mr. Dettman on a confidential legal matter. He handled everything for me and I didn’t have to waste valuable time showing up to court. My emails, calls, and texts were always responded to promptly. Mr. Dettman achieved the outcome I was seeking. I highly recommend Brian for all legal matters.

Highly recommend Brian
Speaking from experience working with Brian Dettman, I can tell you he is professional, highly efficient, and sharp. He's quick to respond to emails and phone calls to where you feel like you're his focus, despite the fact that he's juggling multiple clients, tasks, and cases. He does it flawlessly. I would highly recommend Brian with confidence to anyone.

Personal Matter
Becoming involved in the justice system is a nerve racking gut wrenching experience. Having an experienced individual that is sharp and puts you at ease that knows the ins and outs of law is the only way you can navigate those waters to a fair conclusion. That's what Brian did for me and i really appreciate it.
Posted by Chris | August 11, 2015
Result-oriented, hard-working professional
Brian rolled up his sleeves and got right to work on my legal issue, not stopping until he got results. Along the way, Brian made me feel like I was his only client -- constantly keeping me in the loop via e-mail and phone calls and breaking down the plan of attack. Simply put -- Brian knows his stuff and fights for his clients!

Really helpful and responsive
I contacted Brian related to an issue I had with a health care facility in Kentucky. He emailed me back that afternoon and asked for some additional information. I responded by email and then he called me to say that his firm doesn't handle cases like mine, and then he proceeded to give me many helpful suggestions on how I could locate an attorney in the proper jurisdiction who would have the appropriate expertise to handle my case. He also gave me several other helpful tips in a short conversation/free consult. I'm so grateful for his responsiveness and helpful suggestions. He definitely is thorough and thinks creatively and examines problems from many angles. I would certainly recommend Brian to someone in need of a personal injury attorney.

Understanding. Awesome. Personable.
I went to Mr. Dettman to sue my own insurance company for withholding my PIP. He not only was able to get me back into therapy, he was able to get my PIP check for me. Mr. Dettman took a look at the accident report and advised I had a case to sue other person involved, this after two other local Louisville attorneys turn me down because they said it was a he said she said case of who had the red light in the accident, with no witnesses. Mr. Dettman and his polite, reachable staff took all the worry and allowed me just to worry about recovery. I highly recommend this law firm. I only wish I had called him from the very beginning. I am still amazed at the communication with him and his staff. Phone calls and emails answered within just a few hours, no matter the time of day or night!!!
