How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

I have known for many years that insurance companies are in business to make big profits. Unfortunately, I believe they do this at the expense of the very people they are supposed to protect. When you're hurt in an accident, the last thing you want to do is allow the insurance company to tell you what medical bills they'll pay and what your pain and suffering is worth. Insurance companies that put profits over people need to understand that Idaho juries will not tolerate such policy.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

Every person who is injured as the result of someone else's negligent conduct should consult with a personal injury attorney as soon as possible after the injury. This doesn't mean you have to hire an attorney, but you should find out some basic mistakes to avoid to protect the legal integrity and factual basis for your claim.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

I do not do document reviews for prospective clients.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

I do not generally coach pro se individuals.

Stephen Blackburn

I worked as a legal assistant to attorney Tim Gresback in Moscow, Idaho while I was attending law school at the University of Idaho from 2000 to 2003. During that time, I assisted Mr. Gresback with his personal injury practice to obtain justice for his clients.

Years ago, I hired a lawyer who was absolutely awful. I could never get a hold of him on the phone, and when we went to court, he actually asked me what was going on with my case. That experience, coupled with my previous work experience at another personal injury law firm, and a sincere desire to help people, makes me a better lawyer every day. Many of my clients become lifelong friends with whom I enjoy various activities and discussions.

I am thorough and professional in my work. Through years of experience, I have been able to develop a rapport with many defense attorneys and insurance company representatives and can generally get things done quickly because of my ability to address the issues and get the insurance company to "yes."

Personal interests:

I enjoy all kinds of outdoor activities with my family. Hiking, fishing, shooting, camping, geocaching, ATV's, boating and photography.
