When most Americans lived in small towns, each town had a lawyer, who was thought of as “their lawyer” by most families in town. This lawyer had a life stake in the community and deep personal ties with its members. Not inconsequentially, he (yes, it was almost certainly a man) knew and probably socialized with all the judges.
Standing in contrast is the modern, urban, full-service law firm. This type of law firm employs a large number of lawyers with highly specialized skills and is typically run with a business ethic emphasizing efficiency.
In Louisville, Kentucky, in the heart of the city, one finds a law firm offering the best of both worlds. Adams, Hayward & Welsh has highly experienced attorneys with interlocking skill sets covering a range of practice areas. They don’t try to do everything, but they have deep experience in the areas on which they focus. Alfred (“Al”) Welsh’s areas of focus, most notably, are personal injury, medical malpractice, civil litigation and international law.
Like the most modern law firm, Al Welsh is highly competent, objective, and efficient. However you can also expect from Al the kind of personal attention that is becoming unusual these days. Like the small-town lawyer, Al is thoroughly embedded in the community and well known throughout the legal profession. Internally, Adams, Hayward & Welsh functions more like a family than anything else. Al Welsh is the center of the firm’s personal injury practice.
Al welcomes your call to see if he may assist you and make your life easier. Although you can’t make up for the personal loss…
Our firm’s approach to personal injury practice is high-touch and low-volume. Clients with serious, unusual or complex medical consequences are our concentration.
We take the time to fully assess your case before deciding on a strategy. This is important, as the full extent of an injury may not become manifest for months after the accident.
Al Welsh will become your personal advisor. We will keep your case moving toward either settlement or litigation and help you focus on getting your life back together.
If you have been injured in another country you must not assume anything. Not only are the laws different but the application of them require an approach that fits the legal system. It is important to talk with competent legal counsel as soon as possible. In addition to having a law degree from the United States I received a advanced law degree for the University of Brussels, in Belgium. This was in international comparative law. I am also part of an international association which works together in many parts of the world to assist individuals who have been injured outside the United States.
It is important to realize that by seeking legal advice does not mean that you are obligated to pursue claims for injuries but you must learn the rules of the system to keep your options available.
Each country is unique in the way claims are pursued and. I will be available to talk with you about any questions you may have.
In the event of the most devastating of all events, the wrongful death of a family member, Al Welsh is there to help through this time. The loss of a loved one can never be replaced, however, a recovery can and will assist the survivors.
