Mark Jones has represented many, many soldiers in the United States Army and is well-versed in the unique aspects of handling a personal injury claim involving a soldier, particularly in dealing with Tricare. Mark has resolved cases for soldiers and their spouses while they are deployed overseas serving our nation.
In one instance, Mark was able to resolve a case for all available policy limits while a soldier was in Iraq. Due to a power of attorney, the internet, and a scanner, Mark was able to overnight the solider’s wife in Texas the settlement proceeds after resolving the case (all pursuant to the soldier’s express orders, of course). Mark also knows more about subrogation — or when someone claims a part of your settlement — than perhaps any other lawyer in the Columbus-Phenix City area.
You want Mark Jones on your side to fight not only against the liability insurance company, but also to reduce claims for reimbursement or claims for a lien on your case.
