Wrongful Death

Michael R. McKinstry and the ELM trial lawyers are available for representation in wrongful death cases resulting from the negligent conduct of others. We work with the family to open the probate, obtain the court appointed Personal Representative and pursue the claims of all legal beneficiaries through jury trial, if a reasonable settlement is not offered by the insurance company.

These cases are typically handled on a contingent fee basis, with no attorney’s fees charged for initial consultation and no attorney’s fees charged except out of the actual recovery. We advance the costs, including expert costs needed and work hard to assure that your case is thoroughly and properly presented.

Our trial lawyers are experienced, skillful, recognized, and have been handling these cases successfully for decades.
