Therman Law Offices are exactly what you need after a personal or on the job injury situation. At first, I never thought to file a lawsuit in my case, but after talking with Charles Therman I was convinced otherwise. Throughout the process, whenever I asked for updates via e-mail or text, I was sure to get a call a few minutes after to update my case. In the end, I could not be happier with my settlement that truly is a life-changer and really all due to Charles and his amazing team at Therman Law Offices! Thank you again guys!!!

Charlie Therman represented me in an accident where my injuries required surgery. The case was complicated & he did really good work. Everyone in this office is friendly and helpful. One of Charlie's associates is a woman named Kelly who was helpful in my case, & they work well together. I recommended him to a friend who was very happy also. This is a class act firm.

Najlepszy Adwokat
Mialem powazny wypadek w pracy i na poczatku mialem innego adwokata. Po roku czasu zrozumialem ze tamten adwokat dla mnie nie pracowal i nawet nie chce myslec jak ta sprawa by sie skonczyla jak bym znim zostal. Dzieki bogu, znajomy polecil mi Thermana. Pare lat minelo i jestem bardzo zadowolony. I dziekuje panu bogu za to ze Therman prowadzil moja sprawe. Jezeli ktos szuka adwokata, to polecam Thermana. Ten adwokat jest po twojej stronie i cie nie sprzeda! Therman nie jest tylko dla mnie adwokatem, ale przyjacielem. Majac tyle spraw, zawsze znajdzie czas zeby sie spotkac, wytumaczyc, i odpowiedziec na pytania kture mam.

Great Lawyer!
Charles was a great lawyer during the year and a half he represented me. He was very accommodating to my special circumstances and kept me well informed with updates as they came in. He is very passionate about his work and always operates in the best interest of his client. I would definitely work with him again, and recommend him to others.

Would go to again
Was in an accident in 2013, was injured and so was my wife. Didn't know what to do or who to call. I was referred to Charles Thurman and from the first visit I new he was looking to take care of our needs. Everything he told me to expect happened. The lead times and lays I was kept informed the whole time. I am glad that we chose Charles Thurman and are happy with our results.

Great job Charlie
Charlie informed me of all of my rights when I was injured in a car accident near my home. I was very pleased with the settlement and appreciate all that he did for me and my family. He was recommended to me and I would recommend him to you.

This attorney actually CARES..
Attorney Charles not only settled my case quickly, he explained all the details of the case for me and taught me that I had very spicific rights while on the job. I didn't know that I should not have to work when I was hurt on the job due to negligense.

Strung along for 10 months... then dropped as a client
Initially I was very pleased with Mr. Therman's office and the meeting that I had with him. But after 8 months of ongoing treatment for my work related slip and fall (I have had a total of a year and a half of treatment already), he said unless I had "hard evidence" of my injury that I didn't have a case based off what information he has been given. My doctor has diagnosed me with nerve damage and facet joint issues as related to my injury. I also have mild bulging discs, partial loss of sensation and tingling in extremities, extreme muscle spasms and radiating pain. Treatment has given some relief but not enough and I experience pain daily. I have been jumping through hoop after hoop trying to get my issues resolved and pushing the doctor to give me a concrete diagnosis since I have had a year of treatment. When I finally had the "Hard Evidence" he asked for (a nerve test he had suggested) that showed I have damaged nerves in several of the areas that is being negatively affected, HE DROPPED ME as a client and gave me fivemonths to find another attorney to take on my personal injury claim. I still have 16 months to file my worker's compensation claim but knowing that I have been going to the doctor regularly 1-3 times a month, attending physical therapy on a regular basis, going to diagnostic test after diagnostic test and completing surgical treatments to alleviate some pain to my damaged nerves... it wasn't good enough. I did what any good client should do, provided regular updates on treatments, doctor's diagnosis, outcome of tests and treatments and what the doctor's plans for next steps. I have only met with him in person once. I provided the medical updates regularly to his paralegal, made sure the doctor's office and therapy offices were forwarding regular reports to him, and I had two phone calls since my initial meeting with him. His reason for dropping me was basically it wasn't going to be profitable for him. I have been doing all of the work! While I appreciate the fact that everyone is out there to make a living, abandoning someone just because his profit margin wasn't high enough doesn't give me a warm and fuzzy feeling about his intentions. People who desperately need help to get fair compensation from a corrupt process for their permanent injury, and have their medical bills and future medical treatment covered need representation, especially if they have a legitimate case to be considered.
