Nothing beats a client testimonial to the lawyers at Christensen Law. But a close second is being featured in legal publications. That’s why the firm is so excited to announce that Attorney Sarah Stempky-Kime has been featured once again, this time by the Macomb County Legal News.

Attorney Sarah Stempky-Kime was the subject of a spotlight article in the March 26, 2015 issue of the Macomb County Legal News. The article described Sarah Stempky-Kime as having the heart of an advocate.

Even when cases are difficult, Sarah told the Legal News, “I’ve learned… that everyone deserves the same attention.”

“And people who have been hurt are going through the extreme stress of trying to get better, then the added stress of being in a lawsuit,” she said. “They’ve been wronged, and they need someone to represent their interests.”

That is why Sarah Stempky-Kime and David Christensen teamed up to represent a woman whose car had been hit by a cement truck and sent into a utility pole. She was able to help the jury relate to the firm’s client, which led them to award the biggest personal injury verdict in Wayne County history.

“Vaylma would need help with the simple activities of daily living — moving around, getting dressed — that all of us take for granted,” Stempky-Kime said. “We felt we had to make a better connection between Vaylma and the jury. We needed them to see her as a person who would continue to suffer and continue to need help for the rest of her life.”

It is this heart for advocacy that makes Sarah Stempky-Kime well suited to her new position on the executive board of the Michigan Association for Justice (MAJ). According to their website:

The Mission of the Michigan Association for Justice is to promote a fair and effective justice system. We aim to support the work of attorneys in their efforts to ensure that any person who is injured by the misconduct or negligence of others can obtain justice in Michigan’s courtrooms, even when taking on the most powerful interests.

That’s why Sarah Stempky-Kime and the MAJ board have been fighting against the Republican-led push to reform Michigan’s No Fault Auto Insurance laws. The law provides the most extensive coverage to accident victims of any state in the nation. But the proposed changes “could seriously affect a catastrophically injured person,” Stempky-Kime explained.

Sarah Stempky-Kime and the team at Christensen Law in Southfield, Michigan are devoted to giving each auto accident victim the attention he or she deserves. She will be their advocate against the no fault insurance companies and help them get the benefits they need to focus on their recovery.
