Our firm represents victims of wrongful conduct as well as standing up to the government for people accused of a crime. We are committed to skillfully right wrongs for both individual and business clients. Although we are located in Sioux Falls, we represent clients all over South Dakota and the nation.

We provide professional representation in the following areas:

Personal Injury

Injuries sustained in an accident can affect every aspect of your life, making daily tasks and maintaining employment difficult or even impossible. Navigating the world of insurance can be scary, especially when insurance companies undervalue your case and refuse to compensate you fairly.

Kasey and Ashley have devoted their careers to advocating for injured victims helping guide them through litigation. Personal injury matters we handle include:

Automobile Accidents

Bus Accidents

Motorcycle Accidents

Truck Accidents

Texting and Driving Accidents

Wrongful Death

Losing a family member or loved one is never easy. When the loss of that person’s life is someone else’s fault, the situation becomes even more painful. While we can’t change what happened, we can do our best to see that you or your family are financially protected.

In most wrongful death cases, the deceased’s spouse, parents or children may have a claim against those responsible for the death. Damages in these cases can include:

Expenses associated with the death, such as medical and funeral bills;

Lost income and benefits;

Pain, suffering, or mental anguish suffered by the decedent and the survivor of the decedent;

Loss of love and companionship.

Discovery of important evidence can be critical to a successful wrongful death claim. Our firm is highly familiar with the process necessary to gather evidence to develop your case. This may include compiling:

Medical Reports

Police Reports

Witness Statements

Expert Testimony

Photographs of the scene

Measurements

Accident Reconstruction

Contingency Fee Arrangements

With the stress of medical bills and time away from work that often goes along with being seriously injured, we offer our clients who have been seriously injured in an automobile collision a contingency fee arrangement. This means that there are no fees charged to you unless there is a recovery in your case.

Construction Site Injury

Injuries at construction sites are all too common and can result in serious injuries and in many cases could have been preventable.  If you have suffered a serious injury, accident or fall on a construction site, you may be wondering what legal action is available to you.  In this situation, guidance from our attorneys can prove invaluable.

Our attorneys offer significant experience assisting individuals who have suffered harm on a construction site, including:

Defective Scaffolding

Falls from Scaffolding

Falls from Roofs

Falls from Ladders

Improper Usage of Ladders

The Department of Labor and Occupational Safety and Health Administration imposes stringent rules on the construction industry, and many times such accidents can and should have been prevented.  If the accident was due to the manufacturer of a product or an employee of a contractor other than your direct employer, you or your loved one may be entitled to compensation.

Estate Litigation

Our attorneys combine in-depth understanding of trust and estate law with experience in litigation procedure and tactics, much of which is unique to trust and estate disputes. The end result is a more expert, more efficient and more responsive advocate.

Our experience includes litigating trusts and probated disputes involving claims for breach of fiduciary duty, claims for breach of duty of loyalty, environmental claims, investment claims, beneficiary disputes, contested heirship, pretermitted and adopted heirs, charitable pledge disputes, disputed creditor claims, judicial construction and modification of wills and trusts, will and trust contests, will and trust validity, capacity, undue influence, elder abuse, contested powers of attorney, contested accountings, fraudulent transfers, partition actions, spousal right of election, wrongful death recovery, family and estate management disputes, conservatorships and guardianships, among other issues.

Child Injury or Abuse

It goes without saying that the injury or death of a child is traumatic, and, in some cases life changing. When the injury is intentional or could have been prevented, the situation becomes even more devastating. We understand the significant suffering that a child’s injuries can impose on a family and the worry and pain that parents endure in these situations.

Kasey and Ashley have dedicated a significant portion of their careers to advocating for children. They can provide you with the legal support necessary to handle your child’s case. We will fight diligently on your behalf to right the wrong that has been done to your child, and provide guidance on your rights and options.  Our team has the expertise necessary to assist with child injury cases which include, but are not limited to:

Lack of Supervision or abuse by Child Care Providers & Schools

Car and Bike Accidents

Sexual Assault and Abuse

Water Related Injuries including Drowning

Dog Bites & Animal Attacks

Sports Injuries

Traumatic Brain Injury

If your child has been injured, it is important to seek qualified medical treatment and discuss your rights with legal counsel. Contact us to discuss your case at no charge.

Workplace Injuries

If you get hurt on the job, your employer is required to pay you workers’ compensation benefits. However, is your responsibility to show that you were working at the time of the injury or illness and that the injury or illness was caused by work. Kasey and Ashley are skilled at helping injured workers establish their entitlement to workers’ compensation benefits. These benefits may include:

Medical Care

Disability Benefits

Mileage Reimbursement

Death Benefits

If you have been denied any of these benefits, Kasey and Ashley will fight tooth and nail for the medical treatment and wages you are entitled. What happens to you, also happens to your family, which is why our dedicated and experienced attorneys will be with you every step of the way.

Criminal Defense

Most people are stunned, fearful, and often of unclear mind when approached by an officer. This occurs whether or not the party has committed a wrongful act. It is simply the status of the enforcer’s position. If an officer does detain you and asks you questions, you may be recorded. It is so easy for a person to say the wrong thing, to misstate a fact, or to arrive at incorrect conclusions.

Officers have been trained to elicit admissions and confessions and to gather evidence to prove allegations. It is not frowned upon for an officer to tell a lie in order to convince the citizen under investigation to provide a needed statement. An officer can use trickery by pretending to be one’s friend or play down the alleged crime. Sometimes, the police invite a citizen to voluntarily visit the police station to discuss a potential investigation and attempt to obtain statements that are later used to incriminate you.

As a result, whether you are facing charges or are under investigation, it is imperative that you get the right attorney involved early in the process, prior to speaking with law enforcement. This can make a significant difference in the outcome of your case.

Kasey and Ashley have extensive experience in the full spectrum of misdemeanor and felony charges in both State and Federal Court. Whether the charges involve an alcohol or drug related offense, such as a DUI (driving under the influence), possession of marijuana or even a more serious drug offense, such as possession or distribution of a controlled substance, Kasey and Ashley will defend you zealously every step of the way. We also have extensive experience with charges, including but not limited to, murder, manslaughter, assault and other violent crimes, sex offenses, white collar crimes, theft/embezzlement type crimes, DUIs and other driving crimes.

We understand the severe consequences criminal charges can have on you and your loved ones, including but not limited to sizable fines, prison or jail-time as well as a criminal history that may substantially affect your future goals and employment. As such, we take all charges or potential investigations very seriously and vow to aggressively defend you for the best possible outcome in your case.
