The National Trial Lawyerslawyer review


Who We Are

We have built a nationally recognized reputation for success in cases involving coal mine accidents, black lung and other lung diseases and gas explosion injuries, in addition to all other personal injury and workers’ compensation claims.

I was in a car accident and needed a personal injury lawyer. Taylor Norman has been amazing to work with throughout the entire process. There were some bumps along the way from the other party that made the process more difficult, but he worked hard the whole time to advocate for me and help me get the best out of a bad situation. He made himself available for contact at anytime and always answered any of the questions I had. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome and Taylor Norman is a big reason why.

Wonderful people. Worked extremely hard to help me when I needed it the most they never gave up and stuck with it in till the end. Their staff was always nice and helpful every time I called and always answered any question I had

Wonderful experience with Mr. Norman, he went above and beyond and we are very happy with the settlement. I highly recommend the firm!

My husband and I met with Tim Bailey about a case that we had. Not only did him and his staff treat us with the upmost respect, they worked very hard on our case and got us exactly what we asked for. Huge shoutout to Taylor Norman for all of his late nights and hard work. Also a big thank you to Luanne for her hard work and dedication.

 If you want the Win, you have no other choice but hiring Attorney J. Ryan Stewart and Bailey, Javins, and Carter. An extremely positive outcome awaits you.

What We Do

Our lawyers provide quality and caring legal services to people like you

Our reputation for success has made us the go-to law firm for the most challenging injury and death cases. Other lawyers frequently partner with us or refer cases to us when faced with challenges of this magnitude.

Have you or a loved one suffered injuries that will prevent you from returning to work for a long time, if at all? Have you lost a family member in an accident?

Our lawyers provide quality and caring legal services to people like you. If you are entitled to compensation, we will work hard to get it to you as fast as possible. While many cases end in settlement, we will not hesitate to fight for you in court. In court and out, our success is linked to our knowledge of accidents and the industries where they occur. For example, we speak the language of coal miners. We are familiar with the tools of the trade, from continuous miners to shuttle cars to roof bolters. Not only are we aware of the dangers of roof falls and rib rolls, we are well versed in their causes. We can clearly communicate those causes to members of a jury.
