Don't Just Take Our Word For It
Hear From Our Past Clients

  • I am forever grateful to you both!

    “I have had the privilege to have Mr. Overbey as my lawyer. I had gotten into a bad car accident, and he was there for me every step of the way. The first time we met he made a house call, because I was unable to travel. He was kind, warm, and made me feel at ease with the whole process. It was the first time I ever needed a lawyer, so I was unsure about a lot prior to meeting him. He was the best person for the job, and I never felt alone during the process. Later on in my case, Mr. Overbey added Mr. Heath to my team. The both of them were incredible, and fought hard for me. They answered questions for me whenever I needed no matter how silly they may have been. I have been working with Mr. Overbey for almost four years. Now, that my case has come to a close, I am actually sad I will no longer be in constant contact with them. They made me feel like family! I highly recommend this practice. I do not know Mr. Verser and Old, but if they are anything like Overbey and Heath you will be in EXCELLENT hands! I would recommend them to everyone, and if I ever need any more legal help they would be the team for me! THANK YOU MR. OVERBEY AND MR. HEATH!!! I am forever grateful to you both!”

  • I highly recommend this law firm.

    “I highly recommend this law firm. Joe Verser was my attorney and he provided exceptional legal advice and supported me throughout the entire litigation process. He explained exactly what to expect and delivered consistent customer service. He is friendly, easy to work with, and he truly cares about his clients. I am very pleased with the outcome of my case and I am thankful that I had such a great lawyer to represent me!”

  • I'd pay him more if I could just because of how he has treated my loved one and I.

    “I had to have called a thousand attorneys and none of those that I actually had the opportunity to speak with acted like I was human, they were cold and my issues weren't important to them. Some of the attorneys who wanted to charge $5-10,000.00 don't even get on the phone with you, they have someone else send a message and you have to communicate through a third party, at those prices you should give personal attention to your potential clients. However, when I received the callback from Mr.Overbey's office his assistant Gale was so pleasant, she listened to me, empathized and even comforted me in my situation which she did not have to do. It was already closing time but I wanted to meet with him that day so they went above and beyond and waited for me to get there that same day! When I met Mr.Overbey he was just as pleasant, he took his time with me and promised me his best and I felt comfortable with him and Mrs.Gale, we were a match made in heaven. I hired him on Feb.2, 2011 and our case is scheduled for 3/3/11. He is knowledgeable and moderately priced but worth every bit of his price! I'd pay him more if I could just because of how he has treated my loved one and I.”

  • Mr. Heath and his staff were not only exceptionally professional, but caring and friendly.

    “Three years ago I was involved in an automobile accident. After no satisfaction from the insurance company, I was referred to Mr. Heath by a friend. From our first meeting to final settlement, Mr. Heath and his staff were not only exceptionally professional, but caring and friendly. I would highly recommend Mr. Heath and his firm to anyone in need.”
