Why Choose Our Law Firm?

Over the course of their long careers as trial lawyers, David A. Hampton and Michael D.

The Personalized Care & Attention You Deserve

Hampton & Newman are dedicated trial lawyers whose first and most important objective is to help their clients prevail in their case.   They employ aggressive trial strategies and techniques to ensure effective and convincing representation. Often times the case can be settled and they have participated in arbitrations and mediations with insurance companies and  their lawyers to effect settlements that provide compensation so that mounting medical bills, lost wages and the like are covered and taken care of.

Because every legal matter is different in terms of the facts and law, they approach each case or claim with a fresh perspective and attempt to tailor their approach to achieve the best possible outcome for that injured person.  Some cases are settled out of court and some cases end up in trial, but they make every effort to bring about the best possible resolution for the injured person or his family.  Sometimes serious accidents result in death, and in that case they strive to achieve a result that is best suited for the relatives and heirs in the wrongful death claim.  

Sometimes injuries are significant or life threatening and sometimes they are not, but regardless, they assist those in both large and smaller types of personal injury claims because they know based on their collective experience that the injured person will have a lot of concerns on how or when he or she should settle or file a claim. 

Hampton & Newman also represent the following unions: United Steel Workers of America, United Steel Workers #13214; United Steel Workers #15320 and United Mine Workers of America.
