Success Stories From
Don Strickland’s Clients

  • We thank God for bringing Don Strickland along in our time of desperate need. We could not have found any lawyer more skilled in his field!!

    “My sister underwent a very complicated surgery and because of a number of failed medical practices/procedures, it resulted in her becoming a paraplegic. I was outraged at her situation and overwhelmed with the prospects for her future physically, emotionally and financially. When I researched the possibilities of legal recovery for medical malpractice the chances seemed slim or none. The odds seemed stacked against us dealing with big Medical, I was certain there were would be many more physicians willing to testify that it was not malpractice than those supporting our contention. I will always remember our first meeting with Don Strickland. He, having gotten out of a sick bed to meet with us, was exceptionally compassionate, professional and hopeful. He immediately began an exhaustive effort to collect all of relevant medical records which was highly detailed and to us very complicated. In short order he had this information sorted out and a comprehensive strategy developed. He sourced and obtained expert medical authorities to support our claims. When he formally presented our case I was awestruck with how professional, comprehensive and cogent it was. Whatever doubt I had regarding responsibility in our case was swept away through Don's masterful recounting of the facts. Needless to say we were successful! We thank God for bringing Don Strickland along in our time of desperate need. We could not have found any lawyer more skilled in his field!!”

  • He is truly incredible at what he does and I HIGHLY recommend him. I can't thank him or his office enough for what they were able to do for my family.

    “After losing my father in a car accident, I was not looking forward to talking with lawyers. I was under the impression that most lawyers talked a big game, but all of a sudden didn't have time for you after being hired. After 10 minutes of talking to Don, I quickly realized that he was different than what I had been lead to believe about lawyers. He was actually a very caring person who wanted to help my family and had our best interest at heart. It was also clear that he was extremely knowledgeable in his field of work, but he was able to explain things to us without making us feel dumb. After the initial consultation, my little sister and I knew we wouldn't find anyone better, so we hired him. The whole time we worked together, he never hesitated to call or email me back when I had questions about something...and I had a lot of them. He always seemed to make time to help me, even if it was after hours. It didn't take long before it felt like I was talking a friend instead of a lawyer. He is truly incredible at what he does and I HIGHLY recommend him. I can't thank him or his office enough for what they were able to do for my family.”

  • I highly recommend Don based on my personal experience with him, he gets results.

    “Don represented by family in a personal injury case and did an outstanding job. He is a consummate professional, and showed great empathy towards my family. He is a tough negotiator who does his homework and comes well prepared. He is accessible, easy to talk with, and does what he says he is going to do. I highly recommend Don based upon my personal experience with him, he gets results.”

  • If you choose Don Strickland to represent you I guarantee you he will fight to win and not hold anything back!

    “I recommend Don Strickland to anyone who has a claim for personal injury or deceitful trade practices claim. I was in an automobile accident in Raleigh, NC that caused me to miss work for about 10 months. The driver of the other vehicle was at fault, but making the case because of North Carolina's contributory negligence law was no easy task. This case was not a typical accident where someone received a ticket and the case was solved. A ticket was giving to the other driver stating he was at fault but somehow the ticket got dismissed. Don uncovered the ticket was wrongfully dismissed under false pretenses. When we took the case to trial now we have two cases a personal injury case against the driver and a deceitful trade practices claim against the insurance company. Don and his team traveled to New Jersey, New York and Georgia to interview several doctors and employees of the insurance company. I was examined by countless doctors, surgeons, and physical therapist. Don's detective work and systematic processes was absolutely vital to the outcome of my case, without it we would not have won both cases. The facts of the case where thoroughly conveyed to the judge and jury. I have worked with many attorneys but none with the expertise, organization and compassion as Don Strickland. My brother and his wife where in a car accident in Charlotte last year and Don Strickland is now their attorney. If you choose Don Strickland to represent you I guarantee you he will fight to win and not hold anything back!”
