I had a complex medical malpractice case and I wasn’t sure if there was an liability there. I felt there was some negligent behavior on the part of some nursing home staff. This firm, through Marion Munley, took me through all the steps necessary to prove negligent behavior that might have caused death of my loved one. She was very compassionate and very detailed and patience. I think they are a terrific firm. There wasn’t anything I disliked… I would highly recommend them as a Personal Injury Law Firm. They also handle all types of car and truck accidents, workers compensation and social security disability. I think they are the best in town. Guest of Bing

I have worked with Marion through the American Association of Justice, Trucking Litigation Group. Marion has distinguished herself as an inspirational leader who gives of her time for the greater good of all. She is a hard worker accomplishing great results for her clients. She also is willing to share her knowledge with any and all attorneys who have dedicated their practice to representing clients who are the victims of highway crashes. This week, Marion was elected to the AAJ Board of Governors as an at-large Board Member. This achievement demonstrates peer recognition of Marion’s commitment to highway safety. It is with great pleasure that I give Marion the highest of all possible recommendations. Andy Young – Experienced Trial Attorney with Focus in Trucking Litigation
