Why You Need An Attorney

If you or a loved one have been injured or killed due to the negligence of another, your rights need to be protected. Insurance companies and corporations have professionals trained and willing to take advantage of the inexperience of injured victims.

Every moment you wait to seek professional legal counsel is a moment the insurance company will use against you to defend and deny your claim. That is why you need experienced and aggressive legal counsel to protect your rights and get you the maximum possible compensation.

The Francis Firm legal team can evaluate your claim, explain your best legal options, help you find medical care and get you the financial recovery you deserve. Founder Michael Francis is Board Certified in Personal Injury by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.

  • After being hit by a drunk driver (twice arrested for DUI already), the insurance company wanted to settle for a ridiculously small amount ($10,000). Engaging Michael Francis was the best move we could have hoped for. It took nearly 3 years of battling the insurance company – but Michael had our best interests in focus the entire time. In the end, the insurance company settled for barely under the policy maximum ($900,000)!

    - Tim & Christi Lytle
  • I was very impressed with Michael’s demeanor and care throughout the case. I would certainly highly recommend Michael Francis as a man very much on a mission with regard to getting positive results.

    - Johnny Dwire
  • My case was a very complex case, involving many businesses. It took many years of filing papers, motions, depositions, jury trials, appeals, hours and days of research and hard work. The case went to jury trial, where we won, and after that, Mr. Francis fought the case all the way to the Texas Supreme Court to successfully defend my verdict.
