Words From Our Clients

I made the best decision hiring Perdue & Kidd to help me get through my car accident.

It was painless in the sense that Don Kidd and Adam Blake took care of everything. Initially, I tried to go about the process of getting my car and medical bills settled on my own—but I got nowhere.  Adam Blake took over and settled my case a lot sooner than I thought possible.

Danyell Wilkerson, Personal Injury

I highly recommend this firm and I am extremely grateful for the job they did.

Perdue & Kidd were more than efficient when it came to solving my case. Adam Blake and his team did more than an amazing job on this case. They were smart, sharp, communicative, and most of all patient. I was extremely pleased and amazed by the way the firm was able to handle and win the case. Having to work with a client living abroad and documents from a foreign country in a foreign language. I was extremely nervous about going through this process but I was guided throughout this journey and answered every single question regarding legal terms and what I was entitled to. I highly recommend this firm and I am extremely thankful for the job they did.

Just wanted to give a quick review for the law firm, Perdue and Kidd. I retained them for a slip and fall injury accident that I recently suffered and I would highly recommend them to anyone needing a personal injury lawyer. My lawyer Michael Clinton was so knowledgeable, dedicated, and professional and was always available any time I had questions or needed info and more importantly, he actually took the time to get to know me and my family. He went beyond what was expected and worked hard to make sure I was compensated fairly. If you are looking for true professionalism and honesty, look no further than Perdue and Kidd and Michael Clinton.
