John Setchell

Mr. Setchell has been In-House Trial Counsel for several Insurance Companies over several decades and is familiar with the tactics, delays and excuses used by Insurance Companies to deprive victims of negligent companies and individuals of their fair and just rights. He has taken well over 30 jury trials to verdicts. He has worked in the Courts advising judges. He has worked with judges to mediate and settle cases. He has volunteered to assist victims rights at Free Clinics. He started out as a plaintiffs’ attorney and obtained successful verdicts for plaintiffs before switching to represent Insurance Companies. Finally after years of witnessing how plaintiffs’ claims were treated he has brought his skills and experience to fight for the rights of victims of negligent acts by others.

He has taken to juries trials in wrongful death cases, traumatic brain injury cases, in addition to more numerous, but no less serious to victims, broken limbs, neck, back, shoulder, leg and arm injury cases. Most of his cases have settled due to his ability to evaluate and analyze claims. If a person has a claim for injuries he knows how to properly evaluate the claim quickly and convince insurance companies and their attorneys to pay to the victim amounts that are prompt and fair. He is in a unique position to know what the insurance companies and their attorneys are up to and how persuade them he is not afraid to take the cases to a jury to obtain fair and just amounts. The insurance companies and their attorneys as well as judges and Mediators know that he has the skill and experience to represent their client victims aggressively. This is valuable to clients because they will be treated fairly and resolution of their claims will be given the attention they are entitled to earlier than would be the clients of less experienced attorneys.

He takes pride in his clients and understands they are at a disadvantage in dealing with serious injuries against insurance companies and their attorneys. He understands that most persons who are injured are not aware of the nature and extent of their injuries or the value of their claims, facts that the insurance companies and their attorneys try to take advantage of. He is here to offer clients a clear picture of their rights and a plan to address their physical and emotional concerns.

He is proud to be a member of M&Y Personal Injury Lawyers and to be associated with this experience and qualified Team who insist on nothing but the best legal representation for victims of other parties’ negligence.
