Great Job!
I was rear ended and then flipped over. They took me to TJ Samson emergency room. I called Flora's office and the met me at my grandmother's house. They really did a good job on my case. I am happy with my settlement.

Great Office
In April 2017, I was Hit by an suv while jogging, I contacted Flora's office as quickly as I was able to, an someone was there meeting me a few hours later, during the course of the settlement process I came into contact with several people working in Her Office from Her wonderful front desk young lady answering the phone to her very professional but down to earth paralegals. I have nothing but great respect for Flora an everyone that works in Her office. I pray I'll never need to use their services again but will recommend them to anyone.

the best lawyer in town!
We were involved in a wreck on Cumberland Parkway a few years ago during a thunderstorm. A lady hit us from behind knocking us out of the road over a guard rail, up into the trees and ending up hitting a concrete drainage abutment. Needless to say our car was totaled and we were hurt. My wife had back injuries and I had shoulder and hip injuries. Both of us had sever whiplash. We had a huge mess of medical bills and lots of trouble with the insurance companies paying bills! Flora Stuart's law firm did an excellent job of handling our case! They got all the bills paid. We only ended up paying our insurance co-payments of $600.00. She got us a fair settlement for our car. We got a good settlement for our injuries. Flora and her staff are great to work with and will treat you right. I highly recommend them to everyone!

The Best
I cannot tell you how great the entire staff is. They hold your hand through everything. Work with you while actually caring about you. When your nerves are all but shot and you feel there is no hope left. They shine a bright light and pull you through. They were a true blessing to us.

They took care of everything. I did not have to go to the office much and received all paperwork I needed. Great communication as well!

Sharp Attorney -- Very Solid
Ms. Stuart has a solid reputation. I had the pleasure of working with Flora as co-counsel in a case - and my experience with her was great. She is brilliant, honest and far beyond anyone else I have co-counseled with. Her staff is quick and responsive. She IS THE BEST at what she does - and that covers a lot of ground with me, Personally, she is careful and thoughtful, making difficult things as good as they can be. Never, ever, do you have to wonder if she knows what she is doing. Professionally, she could run circles around everyone else. I'm pleased to have worked with her.

Excellent lawyer
Flora shows sincere interest for her clients and is genuinely interested in seeing the best outcome for her clients. I would have no reservations recommending her services.

Extremely reputable attorney
As a former client of Ms. Flora Stuart, I would highly recommend her as an injury attorney. After being involved in an accident where a drunk driver drove into a mobile home and injured everyone in the home, including my eight week old son, we could not have asked for a better attorney. We were informed with every step that was taken in our case. If ever faced with another unfortunate event that would require an attorney, we would definitely use Ms. Stuart as our attorney.

5 Stars
Flora and her team went through all steps to ensure I would receive full compensation from auto accident in 2011. I had never had any reason to use an attorney until that, they guided me through all steps through my process patiently and kept me informed of everything. I would recommend her to anyone needing an attorney. She is truly a 5 star attorney.

Flora Stuart and her entire team continue to impress me.

She approaches every case with the utmost attention to detail, always considering the unique needs of each individual client.
