ALL MY MONEY: I’ve aged wisely. I wish I could have arrived where I am now more quickly. In the past few years a personal gut-check realigned my mission in life. Today, my goal in life is to die penniless by leaving behind a viable legacy that makes a difference. So all profit I receive from the law firm goes to Together in Hope (TIH, www.togetherinhope.com ), our public charity. Diane heads up the effort by traveling the world to feed kids, their bellies and their spiritual souls (all comers are welcome, not just Christians). A few years ago we traveled to Africa where we witnessed amazing scenes in Rwanda and Uganda. For me it was a personal game changer. Now every attorney in the firm works with TIH. At the end of the day, I have finally come to realize that I have plenty, so it’s time to do more. I have stepped aside from the financial bounty of law to focus on my new mission. Why not quit practicing? I can’t. I love trying important cases. It’s my gift. And it feeds my mission. But when it comes time to cash in on the prize, I’m finally answering a higher calling. It took me long enough, but I finally heard it! BACKGROUND: 313 personal verdicts. Appeared on ABC News, “Prime Time Live” with Diane Sawyer and “20/20” with Barbara Walters. Accepts one case in 300 requests, maintaining a small docket in order to fight offensively and aggressively with tenacity each day for each client. EDUCATION: West Point and Saint Mary’s Law School.

Wrongful Death
Injuries happen under a variety of circumstances. 18-wheeler accidents, offshore accidents, construction accidents, medical malpractice, product defects or malfunctions, industrial accidents, and oil rig accidents are only some of the many instances where a person can be severely injured or killed.

Medical Malpractice
Errors by medical professionals happen all the time. Nurses ignore patients, doctors fail to diagnose clear illnesses, and aids neglect the elderly in rest-homes. These behaviors frequently injure patients, and can even result in death. At McGeHee Chang Barnes Landgraf, we have significant experience litigating medical malpractice cases with catastrophic injuries. Medical negligence resulting in brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputations, or loss of life is a specialty of ours.
