Kiefer Law Office is a different kind of law firm. With “creating a culture of compassion” as our philosophy and corner stone of our business, we have a staff that has helped to create the family environment our clients love and appreciate. Working with people in crisis, we know the importance of not just focusing on winning our client’s cases but also supporting them as an individual. We place a high priority on supporting them as they struggle to regain their life and livelihood after a life-changing injury.
Cassi Cody, intake coordinator, and Dayna Elliot, our office manager, are sisters who have always had a heart for serving others. They make a dynamic team, having been together their entire life. What makes them great is their style, professionalism, sense of humor, and big hearts.
With a background in social work, Dayna is the one who likes to encourage and build people up. Dayna makes a point of finding the good in everyone and calling out the strengths in people.
“Our clients have been through a lot, and I make a point of telling them what makes them great and how confident I am in them. There is so much strength in their willingness to fight. The important thing is never to give up, even if your employer or the system is telling you that you have no recourse and justice seems impossible,” She said.
Having such a caring team has helped us become the go-to law firm for injured workers. We take the clients most other disability lawyers would never represent. We have represented many clients with work related post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), because not all injuries are visible on the outside. Many workers’ compensation clients that suffer from PTSD don’t get the treatment they deserve from their employers because the employer can’t see a physical injury. But we work tirelessly for this type of client because they deserve the same treatment, care, and benefits any injured person deserves.
I have worked hard to build this special team. It’s what I dreamed of creating when I worked for larger law firms that did not uphold the values I held in my heart.
I hope our clients discover how different we are and that this kind of culture is important in a world where there is so much conflict and injustice.
