About me

William R. Rawlings & Associates, LLC, has over 30 years of experience and proven results and has collected millions for their clients and their families. As former insurance adjusters and former insurance attorneys, we know the methods, techniques and strategies used by insurance companies to reduce or deny claims.


We understand that the insurance companies are in the business to make a profit and therefore will try everything to avoid paying claims. Because of our Insurance background, about 98 percent of our cases settle out of court avoiding the stress and anxiety of a long trial. However, we are experienced trial attorneys with the resources, experience and track record of obtaining successful jury verdicts. Many Law Firms refer their own family and friends to us because of our proven success and reputation within the legal community. William Rawlings & Associates is in the business of protecting your rights and obtaining the largest settlement possible.


We offer full-service legal counsel to individuals who have been hurt through the carelessness or negligence of others. We handle a wide range of accident claims, focusing primarily on injuries related to motor vehicle accidents, trucking accidents, pedestrian-related accidents, motorcycle and bus claims. We take almost any type of injury claim, from soft-tissue trauma to serious and catastrophic loss, including wrongful death. We will prepare and file all the documentation necessary to negotiate your claim, and we will fight aggressively on your behalf to make sure you receive full and fair compensation for all your losses.
