Actually, Lyndon was the second lawyer I called. The first lawyer I called-I was trying to explain my case over the phone-and the paralegal pretty much told me I didn't have a case. So, I waited a few more months, and I didn't know what to do. I called Lyndon's office and spoke to his, I'm assuming his secretary, and she listened to my case...and she just made me feel like she believed me. And I came here and presented the case to Lyndon, and, man he took my case. He believed in me.
Because it was just something I was just not making up. It would just be so much simpler if I said, "Hey, I got hurt at home." I'll go to my doctor and get fixed. But I waited almost two years to get this surgery.
And just soon as I came in, Lyndon listened to me, and just told me how the law worked, and just believed in me. The pain-as soon as I had the surgery-it went away. I don't have the numbness in my fingers... getting strength back again.
"Would you have been able to get that surgery without Lyndon?"
No, of course not. I don't think so. I think the thing that impressed me most about Lyndon is the fact he believed in me. I mean, I went almost two years of not having anybody to believe in me about what I was saying. And many co-workers at work, they would say, "Todd, I don't know how you can work like this and not scream at personnel." I just kept telling them I can't do that. It's just not in my character to use profanity and scream at people. I just got fed up enough one day and said I was going to get an attorney. And I did. And very happy that I got Lyndon to help me.
Lyndon, the first day I walked in his door, he had that charisma that made me feel very comfortable. As a person, when you walk into an attorney's office, first of all, you feel intimidated...because he's up here and you're down here. But the day I walked into Lyndon's office, it was like we're part of a team.
My pain was aching me, but nobody was listening. I was calling Workman's Comp, and I was going here and there. The union said there was nothing you could do. We gotta go through this loophole. And then all of a sudden, a guy out of 71, it was an old local, a guy I had met years ago...we got to talking, and the says, "I know Lyndon," and he's the one who hooked me up first with Lyndon. And from that day forwards, I felt very comfortable. I was going though all these pains for two months. I went through loopholes with Workman's Comp, and I was not getting no results, and two months later-and I can go show you exact: I got hurt on April 1 st-I'll never forget it-- April Fools' Day 2003, and it was like June when I finally come to Lyndon . From that day forwards, he took my game plan up and he took off running. He worked through the Workman's Comp laws because I had no knowledge of all these laws and these loopholes. And that's when he took charge, and all of a sudden things started rolling.
Lyndon-he didn't have to say nothing to me. He just let me be free enough to come in and say, look, tell it like it is: "Your back's hurting. They sent you to all these doctors, and they say you've got to get back to work. And we had a supervisor who had told me that I could never come back to work unless I was a 100-percent. And Lyndon convinced them that I would never be 100-percent.
I believe in Lyndon, and I believe Lyndon would help you with any case or any cause. Thanks Lyndon for a job well done.
He works so hard. You'd think you were the only one he was working with. He keeps in contact with the phone. He has a secretary call you. He's a very honest guy. And if he don't think you're gonna win, he ain't gonna tell you "Oh yeah, we can." He's gonna tell you "You ain't got a chance." He's a good guy. He's truthful. He made a really good impression on my husband. And he remembers detail that most people wouldn't remember. He's a very honest guy.
He has never turned me down of coming up here and talking to me. He was always there to try to hurry it on. He would check in to see what the holdup was, what the holdup was down in Raleigh. What the holdup was with Workman's Comp. Why ain't they doing something?
He wants to help everybody, and I just think the world of him. He's just a super man in my book. He's a superman! He's just there to help you. If you want help, all you've got to do is just call him, and he'll come to you. And he'll help you, too!
While on the job, I broke my leg in two different places to where they had to put rods and screws. And I thought Workman's Comp would do the fair thing and be just about it. But anybody who thinks Workman's Comp is gonna do you a favor and do the right thing...lives on another planet.
I got with Lyndon and he took my case right on the spot. Through the process of working with Workman's Comp, they have tried to take my pay two to three times for no reason, so Lyndon put a stop to that. Every time I'd call and have questions for Lyndon, he'd promptly answer my questions. He has worked way and beyond the call of duty to work my case.
I was involved in a motor vehicle accident while on my job. Lyndon took both my cases: motor vehicle and Workman's Compensation case.
Lyndon was very, very supportive of me getting medical attention, because my Workman's Compensation kept denying the claim. They wouldn't let me go to a doctor for four months. So he sent me-he said you absolutely can get some medical attention. Then I got to see some doctors and got into therapy and everything. But that was a very...when you're in pain!
But Lyndon was so supportive. His staff-I would get so "frustrated"...and I'd call Melissa and she'd let me vent on the phone. I just thought they were wonderful. And anytime I wanted to see Lyndon, he was very accommodating. I just can't say enough for them. I don't have anything but positive to say.
While working as a deputy sheriff, I injured my back while arresting an intoxicated person. After dealing with Workman's Compensation for a number of years and getting nowhere, I contacted Lyndon and he assisted me through the twists and turns dealing with Workman's Compensation, and helped me reach an agreement with them where I could get on with my life.
The whole time we've dealt with Lyndon and his staff, we couldn't ask for any better service. They took care of us, they answered our questions. If we had questions, we called. They would get us an answer, if they couldn't answer it then, they would get us an answer and call us back. They provided us with copies of stuff we needed. We were just really pleased with the service we got from Lyndon and his staff. Couldn't ask for a better person and people to work with. We were really satisfied with the service we got from Lyndon.
