Best Lawyer in Missouri
My husband was seriously injured in a tractor trailer accident. We called several of the advertising firms out of Springfield. We even hired one. After a year of doing nothing on our case my aunt recommended Tim to me. Tim took over the case and within a few months had found evidence which got us a settlement. I don’t know what we would have done if we hadn’t gone to see Tim

A Lawyer you can Trust
I had two previous lawyers prior to working with the McDuffey law firm, I wasted two years with zero results. Within 2 months of taking my case, we had some progress and within six months were already successful with a portion of the case. I appreciate the time, attention and dedication both Brad Medcalf and Tim McDuffey have given my case. I firmly believe that we would not have progressed in my case without their expertise. I can say with absolute confidence, I would recommend the McDuffey Law Firm for personal injury cases. Helpful?

Thank God for Tim
Tim McDuffey won my accident case for 1 Million, Thank God my mother in law found him, he is truly an honorable Attorney, and it shows thru his work, he made sure all my bills were paid, so I did not have to deal with creditors, he would always listen to my concerns and worries with a gentle heart, he truly takes his cases to heart, not only was he my accident attorney, but my disability advocate, and to this day 5 years later, he still listens to my concern about disabilities, and advices me on what action to take,Tim you’re an amazing Attorney, a loyal friend to talk to, and I think of Tim as a God sent Angel in my life, thanks for your advice 5 years later even though he is not getting paid,he is always there with open ears to rely on, and nowadays you can't rely on much, but I have had the experience with Tim and Michelle, both of them are truly amazing together as a team.

Be careful of representing yourself
I thought about handling my workers' compensation case on my own. The insurance company offered me $12,000 to settle my case. i was thinking about taking it. I knew Tim from school. The visit was free so i went in to talk to him. Tim pointed out some things about my case that i was not even aware of. I hired Tim and he got my case settled for $60,000. I'm so glad i did not settle the case on my own.

Incredibly Thankful
My experience with Tim McDuffey was second to none. I honestly felt more like family than a client. Tim was incredibly knowledgeable about his line of work. Tim helped me pay attention to and see thing I thought would be over-looked. I would recommend Tim to everybody and their mother. I can never thank him enough for what he did for me and how hard he worked for me. Tim changed my life for the better and I am incredibly thankful!

My experience with Tim McDuffey
Tim McDuffey is down to earth lawyer. I really felt comfortable when we spoke. Always informed and his staff are great too! They were very helpful and kind. Tim handled my Disability case as well as my Workmanship Comp case and had great success at both.I highly recommend Tim McDuffey

Tim is the Best!
I was referred to Tim by a friend. At first, I was hesitant to speak to an attorney. Once I sat down with Tim, he explained to me that I had three separate cases. One for workers’ compensation, one against the person who caused the accident and an underinsured motorist claim against my own insurance policy. Tim got me a settlement against the lady who hit me and a settlement with my insurance. He also got me permanent total disability benefits on my workers’ compensation case. I get a check every week form Work Comp and think of Tim every time I receive it. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate Tim at a 15

"If you have been injured, either at work or in the natural course of your life, Tim McDuffey is an attorney you must consider. Tim is a diligent worker with natural intelligence. In addition to his intelligence Tim has a knack for relating to his clients on a basic human level. Tim is a truly kind-hearted individual who takes a genuine and personal interest in each case. He is always looking to help good people in bad situations. He will take the time to get to know you as a person beyond your case. He is not afraid to fight for his clients, and unlike many lawyers, will take a case all the way to trial if necessary. If you hire Tim you know you will get maximum value on your case. I think It is that peace of mind during an otherwise stressful situation that leads to so many satisfied clients. I would recommend Tim to my closest friends and family. He is truly and excellent attorney."
