Mr. Duncan is frequently consulted by other attorneys on issues involving medical malpractice, wrongful death, general tort law, trial practice and procedure, evidence, case valuation, and appellate practice. Potential new clients consult with him regularly as well to discuss their cases because initial consultations with him (up to one hour either in person, via Zoom, or over the telephone) are free of charge.
The areas that we focus our practice upon are as follows:
- Personal Injuries
- Medical Malpractice
- Wrongful Death
- Auto and Tractor Trailer Accidents
- Aviation Accidents
- Legal Malpractice (plaintiff and defense)
- Products Liability
- Insurance Disputes
- General Civil Litigation
- Criminal Defense
We operate on this one premise: We are not afraid to take your case to trial if the other side does not make a fair offer to settle. If that occurs, we believe that a jury is more than capable of determining what is reasonable and just for you or a loved one.
