Tara Helms, Founding Partner/Injury Attorney
I have devoted my law practice to representing and protecting the rights of survivors of accidents and victims of wrongful death. I believe that the most important role for a lawyer is to fight hard and follow the course of action that is best for the client. For me, the client is always first. I understand the fact that personal injury cases can be stressful for clients and their families.
I have represented injured individuals and their families in a wide range of injury and wrongful death claims, including car and truck accidents, workplace accidents, accidents resulting from defective construction, products liability and defective drugs, and medical-related cases. I am devoted to working with injury victims and their families during their time of need. I have represented hundreds of individuals within the State of Alabama, as well as across the United States and have won millions of dollars for injury victims.
Clay Martin, Founding Partner/Injury Attorney
Since 1995, I have concentrated my practice on representing individuals and the families of individuals who have been harmed or injured as a result of the wrongful acts of others. While practicing in both state and federal courts throughout the country, I have litigated cases involving issues of products liability, tractor-trailer and automobile collisions, dangerous roadways, mass torts, fires and explosions, business disputes, as well as defective pharmaceutical drugs, medical devices and household products.
My goal is to represent and fight for my clients with the same level of skill, determination and advocacy that I would want for my family if something happened to me and they needed a lawyer. I am dedicated to achieving the best possible outcome for my clients and, as a result, have won millions of dollars for individuals who have been injured.
