What People Say
After my motorcycle accident, the insurance company was not willing to properly compensate me for my loss. Steve Boyd fought to get me a fair settlement, I couldn't be happier with his professionalism or result.- Paul R.
When I was injured in a bad car accident in 2012 I was overwhelmed and didn't know where to turn. When I called Steve he met with me right away. He was very professional, knowledgeable, honest and compassionate. Even when I had very down days he would get back to me in the most prompt and timely manner. He lifted heavy burdens by taking care of all the details so I could concentrate on getting my life back together. I am grateful and appreciate everything Steve has done.- Joe M.
My injuries really changed my life and I had to do something. Steve moved quickly to get things rolling. In just a few weeks I was getting lost wage checks. Steve really seems to care about helping me get my life back together. The lady that hit me wasn't drunk but I like that Steve fights drunk drivers.- Shawna S.
I have been represented by Steve Boyd and have sent friends and family to him as well. Steve fights for your rights as an injured client like no other attorney.

I've referred my family members to him and he has served us all well.- Dr. John P.
Steve Boyd fights for his clients. I had the opportunity to work with Steve on a number of personal injury cases. The heart and dedication that he commits to his cases and clients is an inspiration and an example to the rest of us. Steve fights tirelessly to ensure that his clients receive every bit of care they need to assist them on their road to recovery. I trust him implicitly and would recommend him to anyone who has been injured and attempting to fight an insurance company alone. Never fight alone.- Attorney Josh Braddock
