    I have successfully litigated cases involving car accidents, trucking accidents, falls, sexual abuse, and other incidents where innocent people end up injured and bogged down with medical bills and insurance issues through no fault of their own.

excellent Lawyer
I'm actually out of State. We hired Blake to represent us in a lawsuit in Missouri. The communications was great. I knew where we were at all times. I'd sure recommend Blake and his Law Firm to anyone. Very professional and knowledgeable.
