After receiving his Doctor of Jurisprudence degree from Texas Tech University School of Law in 1979, Ed moved to Amarillo.

The Personal Injury Law Practice:
If you’ve been hurt in an accident, you’re suffering from physical, emotional, mental, and financial wounds. When something like this happens, it’s always unexpected. It can turn your life upside-down. Most people don’t know where to turn when they have been injured. That’s where our personal injury lawyers come in.
Whether you have been injured in a car accident, by a defective product, or lost a loved one due to someone else’s negligence, we can help. Our law firm provides experienced legal help to clients who have suffered various accident injuries:
- Back injuries, such as a herniated disc
- Neck injuries
- Head or brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Joint injuries, such as shoulder or knee injuries
- Fractures/broken bones
- Injuries requiring surgery
We will help with all the hassles of gathering your medical information, any other documents, and dealing with the insurance company so all you have to do is concentrate on your recovery. Both Ed McConnell and Jeff Tormey are board certified as specialists in Personal Injury Trial Law and have over 50 years combined experience.

Personal injury law is a tough business. A lot of law firms will turn down cases for reasons you may not understand. If we think you have a good case, even if it’s somewhat risky, we will often take it on. We pride ourselves on working tough cases and turning them into success stories for our clients. You can trust that your personal injury case is being handled by a highly skilled law firm.
