WHEN EXPERIENCE MATTERS! I have been practicing personal injury law for over 20 years. So, the experience is what I have. Over those 20 years, I have handled thousands of personal injury victim’s claims and I have recovered millions of dollars on behalf of those victims. I am devoted to obtaining the best results for my clients. I practice mainly in the northwest valley of Phoenix, in the Peoria, Glendale, Surprise and Sun City areas but I will handle personal injury cases anywhere in Arizona.
Before I started on own firm, DJS Accident Law, PC, I worked for a larger personal injury firm here in Phoenix for the first 19 years of my legal career. This allowed me to gain much-needed knowledge to timely and efficiently handle your personal claim.
I received my undergraduate degree in Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a focus in finance from Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska in 1994. Creighton University is also where I attended law school receiving my Juris Doctor degree in 1998. I was admitted to practice law in Arizona in 1998 and I am also licensed to practice in the United States Federal District Court of Arizona.
My father was a career Army officer and my mom was a school teacher. I had the unique opportunity of living in Seoul, South Korea for two years and visiting Japan as a child when my father was on his military hardship tour abroad. In 1982, the family moved to Sierra Vista, Arizona where I went to school through high school and where my mother still resides. So, I have some southern Arizona roots.
My wife is a school teacher and my step-daughter is attending college. I never had a dog as a child or until I met my wife – now I have a pack of four. I enjoy donating to charities which help protect and support our four-legged friends as they cannot protect themselves. I also enjoy staying in shape by working out and I have successfully completed two marathons and several Tough Mudder events.
Do not become a victim a second time by dealing directly with an insurance company for your injuries. You need time to recover fully and you do not need the hassle that comes from dealing with an insurance company on your own. Insurance companies rarely pay out what an injury claim is worth without the assistance of legal counsel. When experience matters hire me - I have been around the block more than a few times and I know how to deal with insurance companies.
