Personal Attention Attorneys

Proven Results


If an injury has disrupted your life and your family’s life, you deserve a knowledgeable evaluation by a skilled injury attorney who knows how to protect and preserve your legal rights. No matter how long it takes to close a case, our personal injury attorneys remain responsive and personally committed to the individual and the outcome. Our legal team acts quickly and decisively to secure the best possible results.

When we meet with a client for the first time, it’s not uncommon for us to hand them a business card with our personal cell phone number on it. It can be shocking for a client to have that kind of access to us, but that’s the type of relationship they need. Accessibility is the best way to give them personal attention and straightforward solutions.

Client Testimonials

Jennifer Burns upon initial perception was professional, attentive, who never left me without direction. Her knowledge and experience gave me the support needed to successfully win my case as well as receive the treatment needed to get well.

She is a results driven talent and one who will be a for sure champion towards your legal pursuit. I believe in her and I trust her team to accomplish whatever the task given before them! I was pleased, thank you again for all the legal help provided.


Jennifer Burns is an outstanding attorney who cares about her clients. She and her staff were very responsive, kept me informed and involved in my case, and educated me on what to expect. They are very ethical, honest, and professional and I had a positive outcome in my case. I highly recommend Ms. Burns and would definitely hire her again if needed.


Casey has helped me with 2 different cases over a few year periods. He always answers my calls immediately or calls me right back. I never have to talk to a paralegal or assistant. He personally answers and handles my needs and always makes me feel important. He is extremely thorough. Both cases were handled with little work on my part and both have favorable results. That is because Casey has years of experience and knowledge and that is why I trust him 100%.


Casey Carlson is my attorney representing me in an auto accident. He was extremely compassionate towards me and the injuries I sustained to my neck, back and hip. He helped me get the medical attention I needed and eased my confusion and inexperience in a situation where I felt vulnerable and hurt. I highly recommend him!


She was so helpful and just so very kind and real. She made me feel so comfortable and like I meant something to her. Had an amazing attitude and just really nice.


Sarah handled my auto accident case from start to finish. She always kept me informed as to the current status of my case. She went the extra mile and got me more than what the insurance company wanted to pay. She worked really hard and I am more than pleased with my settlement. I would recommend Sarah to anyone who needs a great attorney. Thank you Sarah for all your hard work. Five Stars!


Highly recommended. Betty Whitman literally saved my life. She went in knew what she was talking about. She got me everything I needed.


I was involved in a car accident about a year ago and had heard of Carlson Meissner and associate’s through a friend and i have to say i am so glad I did. They worked very hard to get me as much refund that was possible in this matter. I am very pleased with their office and staff.They follow up quickly and kept me in the loop of my case as it progressed so there was never a need for me to call to find out what was going on with my case. I want to say thank you to everyone in your office that helped me feel at ease you were all there for me and as well as all your other cases, you didn’t forget me. Thank You.
