For decades, Devon Reiff has been helping those who have been injured and suffered harms and losses as result of others' negligence. From a young age Devon was no stranger to tragedy. His father sadly passed away in a car accident while Devon himself endured a car and motorcycle accident resulting in multiple bone fractures and surgeries requiring long hospital stays.
These life-changing catastrophes equipped Devon with an unmatchable level of empathy, knowing first-hand what it is like to go through both physically and mentally challenging times. He’s weaponized this resilience in the courtroom and thoroughly prepares his clients for what’s to come.
