Verdicts and Settlements for Clients of Humphreys Wallace Humphreys, P.C.
We are very proud of our work and results we have obtained on behalf of our clients. More important than the money, however, is the opportunity to allow victims to “have their day in court” or decide to accept fair compensation and put their dispute to rest and move on with their lives. We know that to the best of our ability, when our client case is tried to a jury, the TRUTH is put on display in the public forum of a courtroom, for the world to see, and for the defendant to acknowledge.
