After I was hurt on the job, my company tried to keep me from filing worker’s compensation. Instead, they offered to pay me cash. They told me not to file a worker’s compensation claim – that they would take care of me. When I went a got an MRI on my own, they fired me. Clint Brasher took my case all the way to trial. My employer offered a $25,000.00 right before trial to settle the case. Clint said no and convinced a jury to award me $852,000.00 plus interest.

I was scared to death after being on the witness stand for several hours. Clint Brasher kept reassuring me but, when we broke the trial for the day and I was offered $100,000.00, I wanted to take it. Clint advised me not to and that we would do better with the jury. While it was hard, I followed his advice. The verdict the next day was for $240,000.00 plus interest. I recommend anyone with a legal problem to call Clint Brasher. He was not only a skillful advocate, he was a friend to me during this difficult time.Edward Arabie
