After fifteen years of private practice representing injured parties, Mark Anderson opened the Anderson Law Firm in January of 2007.
We focus on providing superior client service while maximizing the compensation due to our injured client.
During my career, I have represented more than two thousand injury victims. Many of these cases stand out. One typical "David v. Goliath" story unfolded in a local courtroom when my then partner and I tried a defective pharmaceutical case against a large drug company. It was extremely hard work but very rewarding. The other side had as many as seventeen lawyers in the courtroom at a time! But when a lawyer is on the correct side of the "right vs. wrong" equation, then things usually work out favorably.
Here is a real life example that I provide to many of my clients when they are faced with the option of an early settlement offer.
I once had a client who was hurt in a truck wreck. When he first hired me, he was going to physical therapy treatment for a hurt knee. Even though he had also made complaints to his treating doctor of pain in his neck and shoulders, the doctor didn't seem too concerned about those body parts. Despite the injuries to three different parts of his body and as he was still undergoing therapy to his knee, my client wanted me to try and "wrap up" his case. So we had a meeting, and I explained to him what my strategy was — to wait until his medical treatment was completed before trying to settle his case for full value. I convinced him to focus on getting better (all parts of his body) and let me handle the timing and legal side of the claim. He reluctantly agreed. Our patience turned out to be a blessing. Ultimately, my client had to have major surgery on all three injured parts of his body. The wreck turned out to be devastating, but luckily there was ample insurance to get him fully compensated and prepared for the future. He was so glad we didn't settle the case early when he wanted to as there was about a half-million dollar difference in his case's value.

I initially represented a few large corporations as it was part of my first job. But that was all it was - a job. I was basically a hired hand, really just another number. I did not feel that I made a difference. Then, I started working in my true passion - representing the "little guy" against the big insurance company. I will never do anything but represent injury victims.
I personally think a client will benefit from learning about legal issues and specifically how to be the best client for their case. I encourage my clients to read the free information I provide on my website and in my books.
In my practice, I generate all documents to be provided to the insurance company and their lawyers. My clients are not burdened with these tasks.
I do not provide any coaching services. However, I provide one hour free consultations to potential clients in which I give guidance on how to handle a case on their own if I think it is in their best interest to do so.
