Dettman Law Core Values

A good result to me is money in my client’s pocket. 


The only acceptable result is one that is in the best interest of the client.  This means I don’t resolve cases fast and cheap.  Not having a large advertising budget or monthly settlement quota allows for maximum recovery.  At the end of the day, my job is to put things back together, and that involves money.  A good result to me is money in my client’s pocket.  End of story.

No Garbage

I’m not going to yell at you in a TV commercial or embarrass myself to get clicks or clients.  I will also tell you the truth.  Cases have good and bad facts, evidence, and circumstances.  My job is to lay that all out and make something happen from it.  Also, to be totally clear, I don’t get paid until my clients get compensated. Lawyers are starting to advertise that, even though it’s been a common practice for years.

I will tell you the truth, and I don’t get paid until my clients get compensated.

We don’t dodge hard work, and I prepare clients with the guidance they need at every stage. 


Most lawyers don’t know it, but we are in the customer service business.  That means people pick up the phone at my office and answer your questions.  It means we don’t dodge hard work.  And if your case needs to go to trial it is prepared as such and taken in front of a jury.  Hard work and not backing down.   I also prepare my clients.  That seems pretty basic, but you would be surprised.   I prepare clients for deposition, mediation, and anything else where my client needs guidance. 


I support the local community because I live here.  My family lives here.  We play sports in local leagues and the firm supports various endeavors including: Roo’s Wish, Wednesday’s Child, Hope’s Closet, Promise Kids a Future, Via Colori, University of Louisville Rugby, University of Louisville Hockey, Crash Rugby, Mega Jags, Shepherdsville Steelers, Ice Skating Academy, and the Derby City Dynamite.

I support the local community because I live here.

After two years of litigation, an adjuster once told me “you are relentless.” I’m normally a bees & honey guy. However, when necessary, and understanding how insurance companies operate, I get things done. The other lawyer was excellent. But no lawyering can change really hard facts. At the end of the day, that’s what it’s all about.
Happy Client = Happy Lawyer.

Dettman Law Testimonials

Made the best of a bad situation

Had an great experience with Brian and his staff. He came to our home the day after our wreck and Amanda was always checking in with us to see how we were doing. Once we healed up the process was extremely smooth and quick. This was our first time dealing with a situation like we were in and I am grateful for the level of empathy and care that we were provided. Strongly recommend Brian.
