Meet Personal Injury Attorney John Jefcoat

Attorney John Jefcoat and his law partner, Rusty Galloway, have been representing individuals and families throughout the greater Lafayette area after an accident or injury for over two decades. In this video, John explains a little bit about his own background and what drives him to practice law.

Video Transcription:

Rusty and I met actually, about two months before law school started, in 1992. And became friends in law school. And upon graduating in 1995, we both worked at two different law firms for a period of time. And we opened in 1996. And we’ve been partners ever since. So, about 21 years. The little bit of work I did in defense I would say, kind of shifted my focus toward personal injury work. And the reason is that I thought that liability defense work was impersonal. You didn’t deal with a lot of people on a day-to-day basis. Mostly dealt with them over the phone once or twice a week. So, in that respect you get to deal with people on the personal basis. Their day-to-day lives, what’s going on with them from a day-to-day basis. Not only with the people you represent, but also a lot of times their families, their children, their spouses. And so, in that regard I think it’s more rewarding for me. If you would like to speak to us about a personal injury case, we can be reached several different ways.
