“I was aware of Luke Metzler and impressed with his record as I looked for representation shortly after my wife died under tragic circumstances in December of 2019. As a result of the pandemic and a variety of uncontrollable events, I ended up working through a series of lawyers. While those attorneys worked hard to advance my case, the pursuits turned fruitless. Little did I know, Luke was aware of my case but was prevented from reaching out due to legal safeguards and ethics considerations. When my other avenues had failed, a friend of mine who had gone to law school with Mr. Metzler reached out to him to see if he would be interested in taking my case. He immediately replied that he wanted to represent me.
The next two years were incredibly difficult. I had to come to terms with legal realities and the horrible truths of the lengths many in the for-profit medical and insurance industry will go to in order to protect their profits. But Luke and his team (special thanks to Ben Trujillo) were with me the whole way and chipped away at the walls that prevented me from having a chance to be heard.
In April of 2023, we finally reached a conclusion to the case and it was wildly successful by all accounts from those I know who live this profession in and out, every day. I can’t lie; “winning” my case didn’t make my loss less painful or my world bright and shiny. But having a team of attorneys that care and that explored every avenue of redress helped me feel like I was heard and valued and that my loss was unique and individual and worth pursuing. I honestly don’t believe I could have gotten a better result with any other lawyers.
It’s not easy and it’s never simple to fight a system legally entrenched to quash due process in cases of potential culpability. The good news is, I didn’t have to. Luke and the folks at Van Wey, Metzler, Williams did the hard work and heavy lifting. I would recommend their representation without hesitation!”
“Everyone was extremely professional and patient. When my husband passed, deep in my heart I knew it was a medical malpractice. I was told about Kay and Brady, so I called. I am very blessed that Brady quickly recognized that there was something wrong and took on my case.
Throughout the entire process everyone exhibited great professionalism, compassion and profound knowledge of not only the legal matters, but also of medical practices and procedures. Grateful that God led me to this team. Brittni is super fabulous too.”
“A “TOP” law firm that got me a life changing settlement. From the first phone call, to the last one, they kept me informed about the case. I couldn’t be happier the way they treated me as a client.”
“I had the wonderful privilege to intern with this office over the course of one year, and it was truly one of the best experiences that I could have hoped for. Not only were all staff both courteous and professional with clients, but they were passionate about their clients in a way that I had not yet encountered.
This was refreshing to see as someone who is headed into law school. Should I ever need legal help, I would not hesitate to pick up and call Van Wey, Metzler and Williams to represent me!”
“Compassionate attorneys. Kay Van Wey is the very best. She is compassionate and really makes you feel like you matter . . . you’re not just a number to her. Kay is responsive and stays in touch. If you need an attorney, I highly recommend Kay.”
