MVP Louis M Fouts
My lawyer Mr Louis M Fouts went beyond the call of duty I was involved in a slip and fall and was hurt and the owner did not want to provide me any help. I called Mr Fouts told him what happened he told me that it would be a process but he would do his best. He did what he set out to do and that was WIN!!! I have been represented by Mr. Fouts in previous cases and wouldn't have it any other way. This man is VERY VERY EXPERIENCED AND KNOWS WHAT TO DO TO GET THE JOB DONE. IF I THOUGHT A PERSON NEEDED REPRESENTATION IT WOULD ONLY BE LOUIS FOUTS. MY LAWYER TODAY TOMORROW FOR EVER MR LOUIS FOUTS

Excellent Results - Excellent Personal Injury Attorney
Lou Fouts has just finalized my case and I couldn't be happier. From beginning to end Mr. Fouts exuded confidence and boldness in dealing with the insurance companies. In the beginning he collects information from you in order to build the case. He is specific about what he needs and once you provide him with what he needs he takes over. He makes you feel completely comfortable that everything possible is being done for you and your case. He is quick to respond via phone and/or email. I'm sure he is a very busy attorney, but he makes you feel like your case is a priority. Mr. Fouts negotiated a settlement for my car and injuries that exceeded my expectation. I highly recommend this attorney.

I hired Mr Fouts for a personal injury case from 2014. He is an expert in handling insurance companies. He got my case settled not only very speedily but for more than I was expecting. There were some issues from other parties attempting to claim part of my settlement that could have made things drag out and get complicated and he backed them down easily. The insurance company attempted to get cute and pull some nonsense and he not only handled that but made them pay for doing so. If you need a good lawyer on your side ,and believe me if your dealing with insurance companies then you do, then you can do no better than Lou. He is the best!!

Token of Appreciation for Excellent Represantation
Attorney Fouts represented me in a motor vehicle accident. He guided me in the right direction, and every question in time of distress was answered very thoroughly. Not only is he very professional and knowledgeable, he is very diligent, honest, respectful, and responsible. He kept me up to date with my case, step by step through the finalization and settled my case above my expectations! If I were to have bad luck again I know who to trust.

Outstanding review for Attorney Lou Fouts
Attorney Fouts came to my rescue when a previously hired lawyer failed to act responsibly and in a timely manner. Attorney Fouts willingly took my case and was always just a phone call away with ready answers and with "gang-buster" enthusiasm. The settlement he achieved was beyond my expectation. While working my case, he kept me informed on a regular basis through telephone conversations and e-mails. These communications were always answered immediately. His office staff was also very professional, courteous, and patient with my constant requests for updates. I would not hesitate to recommend Attorney Fouts to any one who needs his intervention as I did. Thank you Attorney Fouts for making things right on my behalf!
