Client Reviews
John S. October 12, 2020
Highly recommended! Mr. Lawson was retained in late 2014 on behalf of our daughter after she sustained a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) as the result of an automobile accident while on vacation in Hawaii. We live in Oregon. This case involved three different insurance companies and several individuals. It was a complicated case because the injury (TBI) cannot be observed externally. This lawsuit dragged on from 2014 to July 2020 because each insurance company had to be convinced to settle. Mr. Lawson kept us appraised every step of the way. At certain points in the years long process it was discouraging. But with Mr. Lawson’s patience and perseverance a successful final settlement was reached. Mr. Lawson was methodical in his planning and approach to help us obtain the best outcome. He engaged critical subject matter experts that really helped uncover all the facts and magnify the negligence in our daughter’s case. Even with the covid-19 problem in 2020, he managed to move the case forward. He never gave up and the outcome of the case was better than expected. One great thing about Mr. Lawson is he genuinely cares. Through the years he was instrumental in recommending areas of treatment that we should investigate for our daughter. Not living in Hawaii made the lawsuit more difficult but Mr. Lawson’s excellent communications via text messaging, e-mails and phone conversations helped us through the entire process. We will always be grateful that Mr. Lawson was on our side. He is highly recommended!!

1 Questions Answered
Q. Can a Tennant sue his Landlord? And what is the viability of this?
A: Your situation sounds alarming and unsustainable. You correctly identify your claims as arising out of landlord-tenant legal responsibilities. Your complaints appear to complain of a violation of the covenants of exclusive use and quiet enjoyment by your landlord.

Frankly it will take a further analysis to see if you have claims. We generally have our new client contacts answer a number of questions on intake sheets for all of our prospective clients. You can call our office if you wish to fill out such a new client contact info sheet with Sheri at 808-528-2525.
