Lacey Turley Most
Q: Why did you become an attorney?
A: I became an attorney so I could help individuals seek and obtain justice in the face of adversity. Before working in personal injury law, I worked with victims of violent crimes, persons unable to afford legal representation, and families that suffered through domestic violence. Injured persons often encounter challenges in seeking a just recovery for their injuries, such as negotiating with insurance companies and navigating the court system. As a personal injury attorney, I strive to ease my clients’ burdens and remove any roadblocks to their recovery.
