The state motto of Kentucky is: “United we stand. Divided we fall.” That principle really guides the strength and Kentucky Courage™ of Morgan, Collins, Yeast & Salyer.
When I graduated from law school, I started my legal career working for a law firm that defended insurance companies and lawsuits filed against a major retailer. I quickly grew tired of watching big companies keep injured Kentuckians from getting the help they needed after an injury. After four years, I quit.
Since then, I’ve dedicated my career to helping people who have been hurt by others. The only thing I regret is that I didn’t make the change sooner to helping ordinary, hardworking Kentuckians.
At Morgan, Collins, Yeast & Salyer, I’m the managing partner. I’ve been with the firm since 2000.
I focus on helping you if you were injured in a car wreck, a truck wreck or with a premises liability case. At Morgan, Collins, Yeast & Salyer we treat all of our Kentucky clients as family.
